10 Most Annoying Songs of Holiday Radio
3. Mariah Carey/All I Want For Christmas Is You
Total plays per season: 19,153
Now we're getting into some rare airtime. At three minutes and 55 seconds, this song would play for 47 straight days if you stretched all its spins from end to end. You'd have to start playing it Nov. 7 to get all of that in by the end of Christmas Day. Comparatively speaking, Americans haven't really heard it that often. It was originally released in the U.S. in 1994 with little fanfare. It dropped off the American holiday charts until about 2003, when it was featured in the romantic comedy Love Actually. In Britain, meanwhile, it was No. 2 on the charts when it was released and has been a holiday staple for roughly 18 years.
