Turning up the hurt: “All I Want for Christmas is You” sung in a minor key

It’s only getting worse. Over the last seven days, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” has been spun 12,534 times on North American radio. The song has also been streamed 4.345 million times in Canada and a staggering 50.492 million times in the US.

Enough. Time for a different twist on the song. Here it is sung in a mournful minor key thanks to Chase Hofelder.
