It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so Spotify is rolling out its annual list of festive favourites.
You’ll hardly be able to walk into a retail outlet over the coming days without hearing some of the perennial seasonal songs that seem to find their way back into our hearts each and every year.
And there are really no surprises who’s topping the 2016 list of the most streamed Christmas songs in Australia.
Though the track may now be a staggering 22 years old, Mariah Carey’s seminal classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is right there at the top of the Christmas tree.
It’s the most popular Christmas song of all time on Spotify, with a massive 149 million streams in total.
Staples ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’, ‘Last Christmas’ and Bing Crosby’s classic ‘White Christmas’ also make the list, along with (unusually) ‘Jingle Bell Rock From Daryl’ by Hall & Oates and (no doubt thanks to Ellen) ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year’ by Andy Williams.
Here’s this year’s top ten;
10. Daryl Hall & John Oates – Jingle Bell Rock From Daryl
09. Bing Crosby – White Christmas
08. Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas?
