It’s Christmastime on the U.S. and U.K. Charts

You can’t escape Christmas songs. You hear them everywhere. At the grocery store. In the mall. At the gas station. Your favorite restaurant.

Christmas songs are also all over the Billboard Hot 100 and U.K.’s Official Singles Chart Top 100 … more than ever.

Just take a look at what’s No. 1 this week: Mariah Carey’s 1994 hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is atop the Billboard chart, and Wham!’s “Last Christmas” is at the top on the other side of the Atlantic.
