If you listen to Sunny 107.9's Christmas presentation you've probably heard this song.

Can you believe Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" came back out in 1994? It's back on the Billboard Hot 100 right now. And it just hit number 9, cracking the top ten for the very first time, 23-years after its original release.

Mariah Carey tells billboard she's honored and "Thankful to everyone who embraces this song as part of their holiday tradition."

But while Mariah may be the queen of Christmas music, there is also a king.

Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" is the best-selling single in the world. 

He first recorded it in 1942 for the movie "Holiday Inn."

The Guinness book of world records says it has sold more than 50-million copies. It hit number one for eleven consecutive weeks on the "National List of Best-Selling Retail Records" chart; which was used before the Billboard Hot 100.

I mentioned Sunny 107.9 earlier because they are playing Christmas music 24/7 right now.
