To tell you the truth, I’m hard pressed to say something bad about this wonderful singer. She sings like a dream and nearly everything she sings is listenable if not for the song than for that wonderful melodious voice. However, it’s that time of the year again when all Gods’ good children are rewarded and good cheer is about. And its time to remove that all time classic by Mariah “All I want for Christmas is you.”
I first heard this song when it was released by Mariah as a part of her Christmas album in 1994. The song is written by her and it was a wonderful uptown beat, a clean instrument section with beautiful pianochords and really, really beautiful backing vocals. For people, who haven’t heard the song, they can check out the Youtube vid to understand what I’m talking about. It’s a beautiful song with wonderful soft lyrics about a woman waiting for her lover to come back for the festive season. She does not care about the gifts, the weather or even the season. She just wants her man back and by her side. If you have the time, check out the video which showed mariah carey cavorting a snowy mountainside while humming the beautiful song. Even her then husband Tommy Mottola made an appearance as Santa Claus who comes in and drops off a gift for the singing star. The instrumental version quickly became the favorite ring tone for the festive occasion and it has sold more than 5,120,000 copies in the US alone.
The track “all i want for christmas” is still beautiful to listen to Mariah regularly releases brand new versions that have gospel backgrounds, rap and even a reggae background for difference niches of listeners. The song has an uptown beat which is very listenable and it formed the lead for the entire album. The song has synchronized orchestra, a wonderful backing vocals section as well as mind blowing piano chords and keyboard notes that have made the song memorable. You can listen to the song online but you can download the song too. However, if you want to enjoy this golden oldie, buy the album for this festive season and enjoy the soothing lyrics.
