Back Row 426 – 428 | Christmas Music


About This Episode

Every year, hundreds of new Christmas songs are written and recorded, yet no matter what songs come out, or how many new covers of classics are made, or how much Michael Buble’s voice make us swoon… the number one Christmas song is always ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU by Mariah Carey!

This week, Radio Matt & Mo are talking about the Christmas music that tops the holiday charts every year and why we are drawn to the repetitive classics instead of new stuff.
