In 1994, something magical happened. Mariah Carey released “All I want for Christmas is You.” Ever since, many holiday songs have tried to dethrone the classic, but none of have reached such success.
It has become the best-selling holiday ringtone, and it is the first holiday ringtone to be certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA.) It’s been covered by dozens of artists, downloaded millions of times, and played at countless holiday parties.
Has the classic finally met it’s match in the year 2014?
“Text Me Merry Christmas” is a new song by Straight No Chaser featuring Kristen Bell.
With lines like “I don’t care if you spell things right, I just want to hear from you tonight,” it bears some resemblance to Carey’s classic.
But SNC connects with a new generation: “A Facebook message isn’t quite as sweet, I need more from @you than just a tweet. A snap on snapchat doesn’t last, and voicemail, that’s from Christmas past.”
