The Buzz: Most popular holiday tune

For two decades she’s more or less been known as the Christmas queen, but after 20 years Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” has been dethroned as the most popular seasonal tune to stream in stores.

This is according to “PlayNetwork”, the company that provides  in-store playlists for more than 400 different brands. Mariah’s instant-classic had been the no. 1 song on repeat in stores since its release in 1994, but this year, “The Shins'” cover of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” has taken the top spot. Other popular songs this year include “The Waitresses” “Christmas Wrapping” and Sam Smith’s cover of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.
