Essential X-mas Music Track 7
"All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey
Judge all you want. It might be one of the best pop songs of the last 20 years.
When Kristen and I were first dating, she made me watch "Love, Actually". I didn't care for it. I debated with her about the superficiality of a marriage between two characters who didn't speak each others language (if you've never spoken to someone, your entire affection is based on their looks. What if that person turns out to be a Klan member or something?) But there is one thing that makes the movie tolerable.
That one thing is the performance, by a group of Jr. High tweens at the end of this song. It's so good. Worth sitting through the whole two hours.
Heads Up: This song will appear on this list again!
