For The First Time in 61 Years, A Christmas Song Tops The Hot 100 Billboard Chart


I did not expect to wake up with the news that a Christmas song went number 1 on the Hot 100 Billboard Chart. The only thing going through my mind is if it is that damn Jake Paul, I am going to put my manhood in a waffle iron that makes Darth Vader shaped waffles. However, what I did not see coming is that the song at number 1 would be 25 years old. “All I Want For Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey is a Christmas staple. And one of the more hated songs on the holiday rotation, but this year the hate was apparently not as strong as the song went to Number 1 for the first time.

The song spent 34 weeks on the chart without reaching the top spot. The Macarena spent 32 weeks on the Hot 100 until it reached number one. I am not sure about anyone else, but this seems completely out of nowhere. But it does prove that it has been awhile since a Christmas song became a must for any lover of the holiday.

The 34-week statistic is one thing. But “All I want For Christmas You” is the first Christmas song since The Chipmunk Song in 1958-59. Let’s hope Wham’s Last Christmas is next to claim that top spot.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
