Sadddd to Mariah....

Some of y'all might have been thinking it for years, but now it's official: Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' has been voted the most annoying Xmas song in a UK poll.

A recent survey from Huawei asked Brits to vote on what they considered to be the most annoying Xmas singles, and Carey's hit unsurprisingly topped the list by a wide margin.

'All I Want For Christmas' turns 25 this year, and to mark the occasion Mariah Carey has been doing her best to get us all into the festive spirit long before the big day.

Mariah kicked off the festivities on the first on November - the day after Halloween - tweeting "it's tiiiiiime!" and dropping a new version of her music video for the Christmas track, re-cut with previously unreleased footage.

The song has already been streamed 4.8 million times just over the last week and smashed holiday streaming records in 2018 after being played a whopping 11 million times on Christmas Eve alone. Wow.

Other songs that ranked highly in the Huawei poll included many of the usual suspects, including 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' by Band Aid, 'Last Christmas' by Wham! and of course, the infamous 'Merry Christmas Everyone' by Slade.

The full list is a follows:

  1. 'All I Want for Christmas is You' - Mariah Carey
  2. 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' - Band Aid
  3. 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' - Wizzard
  4. 'Merry Xmas Everybody' - Slade
  5. 'Last Christmas' - Wham!
  6. 'Fairytale of New York' - The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
  7. 'Baby It's Cold Outside' - Tom Jones & Cerys Matthews
  8. 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' - Jackson 5
  9. 'Santa Baby' - Eartha Kitt
  10. 'Jingle Bells' - Andrews Sisters
