When it comes to Christmas music, the classics like “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby and the duet “Baby it’s Cold Outside” tend to come to mind first.
In fact, the latest modern holiday song to stick was Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You”, which is 19-years-old. Before Mariah Carey, there was 1981 hit, The Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping”.
Music experts say big pop names haven’t stopped writing Christmas songs. In 2008 Lady Gaga released “Christmas Tree” and in 2010 Coldplay had “Christmas Lights”, listeners just are not embracing them like they do the classics.
