All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey

Ever since I've heard this song, I've fallen in love with it. Mariah is truly talented! This is probably the best song she's ever written and sang. I'm not a big Mariah Carey fan, but this song gives so much joy to so many people. Even though it's been overly played in stores and is probably on every Spotify Christmas playlist, I could never get tired of this song. Well, at least Mariah's version of the song. It's fun, it's poppy, and it's the perfect Christmas love song! While most of her songs are slower, this one contrasts with an upbeat, energetic vibe.

I could listen to this song on repeat, but I try not to get into a habit of that because it could get stuck in my head for hours. It's that catchy!

I don't know why this song means so much to me. I've never dated. But I have had crushes. When I get my first boyfriend/husband, I would want us to dance to this song around Christmas time. That would be a dream come true!

I remember creating a version of this song from some software that I had been required to do in a music theory class. I'm not a musician, but I think I have that gift of listening by ear. I've listened to the song so much that I didn't even have to play it in order to get the right melody. During the last day of class, we had the opportunity to share our projects to our fellow classmates. I remember that only one of the students presented their work (it was a small class). I didn't share mine because, honestly, I was embarrassed. But now looking back, I wish I did share it. The only person that heard the song was myself, the professor, and my family, but I guess that was enough, right?

Anyway, some people may love this song. Some may hate it. It may make someone happy or someone lonely. But at the end of the day, it's a freaking smash!
