No celebration comes close to Christmas when it comes to music searches, although Adam Sandler’s Hanukkah song always manages to crack the Buzz rotation.

If you want to plan your holiday party playlist, stick to the oldies. Only four songs among our top 20 are from the last 20 years, and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas (Is You)” dominates the newcomers. If you can’t prime your vocal cords for her high notes, check out the rest of the top 20 holiday ditties according to your searches…

Oh and tear! I don’t see a Celine Dion song on here at all! Mariah Carey cleaned house with this bunch. That’s Melissa’s favorite Christmas song. I wish I could hear her sing it one more time before Christmas is over…oh well, maybe next year…
