All I Want for Christmas Is You” is a Christmas song performed by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. She wrote and produced the song alongside Walter Afanasieff. Columbia Records released it on October 29, 1994 as the lead single from her fourth studio album and first holiday album, Merry Christmas (1994). The track is an uptempo love song that includes bell chimes, heavy back-up vocals, and synthesizers. It is the best-selling modern day Christmas song and solidified in popular culture and music.

Two music videos were commissioned for the song: the song’s primary music video features grainy home-movie-style footage of Carey, her dogs and family during the holiday season, as well as Carey dressed in a Santa suit frolicking on a snowy mountainside. Carey’s then-husband Tommy Mottola makes a cameo appearance as Santa Claus, bringing Carey a gift and leaving on a red sleigh. The second video was filmed in black and white, and features Carey dressed in 1960s style in homage to The Ronettes, alongside back up singers and female dancers.

Carey has performed “All I Want for Christmas Is You” during numerous live television appearances and tours throughout her career. In 2010, Carey re-recorded the song for her second holiday album, Merry Christmas II You, titled “All I Want for Christmas Is You (Extra Festive)”. Carey also re-recorded the song as a duet with Canadian singer Justin Bieber for his 2011 album Under the Mistletoe, titled “All I Want for Christmas Is You (SuperFestive!)”. The song has also been covered by many artists over the years.

In the years since its original release, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has been critically acclaimed; it was once called “one of the few worthy modern additions to the holiday canon” in The New Yorker. It has become established as a Christmas standard and continues to surge in popularity each holiday season. The song was commercially successful, topping the charts in Australia, Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland while reaching number two in Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom, number three in the United States, and the top 10 in several other countries. With global sales of over 16 million copies, the song remains Carey’s biggest international success and is the 12th best-selling single of all time, and the best selling Christmas single by a female artist overall. As of 2017, the song was reported to have earned $60 million in royalties.



There are three music videos for “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. The first, primary video was shot in the style of a home movie using Super-8mm film; it was directed and filmed by Carey during the Christmas season of 1993. The video begins with Carey placing holiday ornaments on a Christmas tree and frolicking through the snowy mountainside. Outdoor scenes were shot at the Fairy Tale Forest in New Jersey, where Carey’s then-husband Tommy Mottola made a cameo appearance as Santa Claus. It continues with scenes of Carey getting ready for her album cover photo shoot and spending time with her dog Jack. It concludes with Santa Claus leaving Carey with a bag of presents and waving goodbye. It has more than 530 million views on YouTube as of December 2018. In the song’s alternate video, inspired by The Ronettes, Carey dances in a 1960s-influenced studio surrounded by go–go dancers. For a 1960s look, the video was filmed in black and white, with Carey in white boots and teased up hair. This video was also directed by Carey.


There are two edits to this version of the video. In 2019, along with the release of the deluxe 25th-anniversary edition of her album Merry Christmas, she released a new music video for the song with unreleased footage. – Wikipedia

Some Quotable Lyrics

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
