It’s happened to all of us.
We’re sat in a bar at Christmas time with friends, enjoying a festive drink. The evening is pleasant, and everyone’s enjoying themselves. Until… The sickeningly familiar sleighbells come on over the Jukebox. Our hearts sink immediately because we know what’s coming… Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is about to commence, and therefore completely ruin everyone’s evening.
Despite how successful Mariah’s 1994 Christmas hit is, it is also known universally as being incredibly annoying. Once you’ve heard it, that’s it – It will be stuck in your head for the next week, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
So it will come as no real shock that Mariah’s festive jingle has been voted as the most annoying Christmas song of all time. The survey, commissioned by Huawei, asked the public to rank ten Christmas singles purely on their annoyingness… And, though we expected Mariah to win the number one spot, the rest of the results may shock you.
