What’s the nations favourite Christmas song for 2021?

23/12/2021

Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You has been named the UK’s favourite Christmas song


Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You has topped a poll to find the UK’s favourite Christmas song.

The festive classic defeated The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale Of New York and Wham’s Last Christmas in a poll of Magic Radio listeners.

The radio station asked listeners to vote for their favourite track as their Christmas truck toured regions across the UK, including Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow and London.

Members of the public who visited the truck had to vote for their favourite festive song, with All I Want For Christmas Is You securing first place in all cities visited.

Overall, the hit received 33% of the votes cast, with Fairytale Of New York coming in second place with 12% of the votes, and Last Christmas scoring eight per cent.

Magic Radio has also asked guests what their favourite Christmas tunes are, and Kian Egan from Westlife picked Carey’s song.

He said: “So I’m going to go with one that I thought Mark [Feehily] might have picked actually, Mariah Carey, All I Want For Christmas, because it’s just a classic and you know, I don’t think we’ll ever have a Christmas without this song in our lifetimes.

“And obviously we love Mariah, we got to work with her a long, long time ago now.”

Ed Sheeran picked Fairytale Of New York because he loves “a cheery Christmas song”.

He added: “What I love about Fairytale Of New York is it still makes people dance and feel happy, but it’s actually quite a miserable song.

“I love when songs sound happy, but they’ve got this dark undertone to them.”
