Earlier this week I posted a blog about The Most Popular Decades For Christmas Music and I was surprised to have a couple people challenge what I posted.
In my blog I talk about the 40’s and 80’s being the decades that produced the most popular Christmas songs. Some felt my blog was slightly flawed as I ignored two of the most popular/over played Christmas songs. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (1994) and Jose Feliciano’s “Feliz Nacidad” (1970).
I don’t deny that both these songs are very ‘popular’ and that they are definitely overplayed during the holiday season. My blog wasn’t about which song was the most popular. It was about which decades produced the most, as in number of, Christmas songs.
I’m actually glad these individuals brought these two songs to my attention, because in a way they actually prove my point. Could it be that these songs are as popular as they are because during their decades, the 70’s and 90’s there wasn’t as many commercially successful Christmas songs, leading to these songs standing out even more with no competition?
