Well we’re already in November and we all know that can only mean one thing… Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time to get your festive playlist ready!
Spotify Australia has just released some new local data about what we like to listen to here in Australia at this special time of year so we’ve listed all the new info below.
As well, over the weekend it was also the anniversary of the most iconic song of the holiday season – and possibly of all time – Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You. The track turned 28 years old and wow – is that making anyone feel old?!
Of course good old Michael Buble did an excellent version of the song as well but we want to say thanks to Mariah because she’s the one who released it and yes – she’s the one who wrote it!
And as a special treat, here’s a video of both Mariah Carey and Michael Buble performing this iconic Christmas track. Listen and you’ll feel like it’s Christmas eve all over again!….
And here is Australia, here’s the latest info on what we like to listen to at Christmas time:
