1. Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas

At this point, even newborns and hermits have heard the world's beloved holiday theme song that is "All I Want For Chrismas Is You" by Mariah Carey. The pop star co-wrote and co-produced the song with Brazilian-American songwriter Walter Afanasieff for her first holiday album, Merry Christmas (1994). 

In 2019, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time, 25 years after its initial release. As of this writing, Carey's Christmas uptempo love song has an estimated sales of over 16 million worldwide. It has also been certified 'Diamond' by the Recording Industry Association of America after selling 10 million copies in the United States alone. 

Tatler Trivia: All I Want For Christmas Is You reportedly earned $60 million in royalties.

2. Lady Gaga: A Very Gaga Holiday (Live Album)

Lady Gaga has a deep, soothing voice perfect for the holidays. With the success of her chart-topping Jazz albums Cheek to Cheek and Love for Sale, it is not surprising that the pop star can pull off something as notable as a Christmas album.

Dubbed A Very Gaga Holiday, the live EP contains songs that Gaga performed on the ABC holiday television special A Very Gaga Thanksgiving. The album was made available for purchase in the US on November 22, 2011, exclusively for users of iTunes and Amazon. 

Songs in the EP include the jazz covers of songs "Orange Coloured Sky", "White Christmas"; and the acoustic versions of Gaga's "You and I", and "The Edge of Glory".
