Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas' No Longer #1, The Shins Take Top Spot
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

After 20 years, Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' has been dethroned as the Number 1 Christmas song falling to The Shins' cover of Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime." PlayNetwork, a company that works with 400 different brands to build targeted playlists for their stores, has compiled a list of this year's Top 20 Holiday Songs Played in Retail. Mariah Carey''s hit has topped the charts nearly every year since it's release in 1994. The Shins' remake was released in 2012. This list does seem to favor new artists performing update renditions of Christmas classics, perhaps a branding strategy preferred by retail, but there are a few staples that make the cut including Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis, and Jose Feliciano.

iradiophilly's Mistletoe station plays Christmas music all year round. You can hear your favorite artists performing Christmas songs on some of our other stations once an hour through 12/25. Listen in to Bandstand, Bellbottoms, Eightball, Isis, Libra, Magic, Martini Lounge, Mustang, The Plateau, Sapphire, Skin, and Ziggy for some extra holiday cheer.
