Watch Mariah Carey Talk About Her Favourite Christmas Songs

Mariah Carey's Christmas Playlist Is Not What You Might Expect

If you've ever wanted to know what's on the Queen of Christmas's holiday playlist, your wait is over. During Mariah Carey's appearance on The Tonight Show on Dec. 7, she spoke with Jimmy Fallon about her new book, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, as well as her legendary Christmas hit, "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Of course, Carey is anything but casual about her mega hit, but it might surprise fans that she didn't always listen to it. She shared with Fallon: "It's taken me all these years to just listen to the song at Christmas and just enjoy it as a listener." When it comes to her personal Christmas playlist, Carey typically opts for the classics. "I love Donny Hathaway's 'This Christmas.' I love Nat King Cole's 'The Christmas Song' . . . Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas,'"she shared. "There are so many good ones." You can also listen to her choices for best Christmas albums in the full interview above.
