#1 All I Want for Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey

#3 Last Christmas - Carly Rae Jepsen

The original version of Last Christmas was sung by Wham!, the greatest pop singer of the '80s. In this song, he turns the holiday heartache into snowy synthpop. But since it's too hard to resist that sax, we highly recommend the Carly Rae Jepsen's cover which might sound more cheerful.

#4 This Christmas - Donny Hathaway
