12 Days of Karaoke- Day 3

Mariah Carey- All I Want for Christmas is You

Since we're in the holiday theme per our last post, this is as good a time as any to include a Christmas song in the karaoke pack. Sorry, Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song, you just don't compare in terms of sing-along-ability. Although Sandler's song is a lot easier to sing.

And that makes Carey's Christmas song a risky pick--you really do have to be able to sing, at least a little bit. At her peak she was one of the greatest voices of all-time. And this song was recorded in 1994, which is also known as her peak. So going in, this ain't no "Don't Stop Believin'"--you can't just hold up the mic and let everyone else sing. But if and when you pull it off, it's amazing. And honestly, find me one person who doesn't enjoy this song and I'll show you a robot or some other soulless abomination, because that's the only category of subhuman I can imagine not liking this song. But I digress...
