Mariah Carey's iconic holiday track "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has been officially dethroned, Paste reports. The classic, something many people likely hear hundreds of times a year at any given American mall, has now been outpaced by a Beatle. Sort of. The Shins' 2012 cover of Paul McCartney's "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time" is now the most-played holiday song in retail stores, with the 1979 original landing in 17th place.
PlayNetwork, a company that works with 400 different brands to compile their store playlists, put together the definitive list showing the songs that quickly grow tiring at or very near your local Smoothie King. Though it isn't quite ubiquitous enough to push its way into the top ten, Sam Smith's take on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is already doing decent numbers with the 15th most retail spins.
Peep the top ten, via Paste, below:
1) The Shins "Wonderful Christmastime"
2) Mariah Carey "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
3) Christina Aguilera "Christmas Time"
4) Waitresses "Christmas Wrapping"
5) Jack Johnson "Someday At Christmas"
6) Kelly Clarkson "Underneath The Tree"
7) Michael Buble "A Holly Jolly Christmas"
8) Bing Crosby "White Christmas"
9) Train "What Christmas Means To Me"
10) Ella Fitzgerald "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
That's probably a fire playlist if you're into that sort of thing.
