AMF Survey ❄ Top 100 Christmas Songs: 2016 Edition ❄ THE RESULTS!

Post by Daniel » Fri Dec 23, 2016 9:40 pm

A big thanks those of you who participated in AcclaimedMusic's 3rd annual survey dedicated to Christmas songs!

We had the biggest turnout this year than ever before, with 14 new ballots (9 of which were from first-time participants!), and 4 being carried over from previous years, bringing the total number of counted ballots to 18. With the 9 new participants this year, we have doubled the total number of submissions!

The following users contributed lists for the first time to the Christmas songs survey:
❄ andyd1010
❄ EmilienDelRey
❄ Jeff
❄ Moonbeam
❄ pauldrach
❄ PlasticRam
❄ prosecutorgodot
❄ TimmyWing
❄ VanillaFire1000


The following returning users submitted revised lists this year:
❄ Charlie Driggs
❄ jamieW
❄ Listguy
❄ Live in Phoenix
❄ Daniel


Lists from the following users were carried over from past years to this survey:
❄ bonnielaurel (2015)
❄ DaveC (2015)
❄ sonofsamiam (2014)
❄ whuntva (2014)

The following formula was used to calculate the resuts:
100*(1+50)/(position+50)

A special shout-out to Live in Phoenix and Listguy for their continued interest and encouraging me to bring back the survey this year.

So, without further ado, I present to you...

One of the things I find great and infuriating at the same time is the way people listen to Christmas music. You have people who only like modern pop listening to Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole, and rock fans listening to Mariah Carey.

Thank you Daniel for the fantastic presentation! I hope everyone's holidays are going well!

"Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is now the critical consensus for greatest holiday song, so it makes sense that our forum would eventually agree the same.

In response to Listyguy, "All I Want for Christmas is You" is pretty much a rock song, which is why I love it. You can't really say Cole and Crosby are rock though. However, I still love them as well.

I'm interested to know who else voted for the new Kacey Musgraves / Leon Wilson song! Let me know!

It's too bad nobody else voted for "Arabian Dance" (Tchaikovsky) or "Happy New Year" (ABBA).

Hello,
If it's really not a thing outside the US I think all these christmass songs, it's always a pleasure to listen some really good songs.

But can I asked why The Nutcraker appears here. Do this ballet have a particular signification in the US? (I know the ballet happens at christmas day but it's not fundamental for the story). Just a question, the result surprised me with this!

I voted for Kacey. I'm not a big country fan but I think she's great, and I really enjoyed her Christmas album.

I do love Kacey, but I enjoy Same Trailer Different Park way more than I do Pageant Material or A Very Kacey Christmas. Her music is getting cheesy, and I don't really like the taste. I can only stand to listen to a little bit of the Christmas album, "Present Without a Bow" is one of those songs. I respect whatever artistic decision she makes, but I would really love it if she went back to the style of STDP.

Follow Your Arrow is still easily my favorite song of hers, and I only like a few songs on Pageant Material. She's not perfect, but she's a lot more clever and melodically interesting than most country artists these days.

My interpretation is the same as yours, I'm pretty sure its appearance on lists is because the ballet is set in Christmas.
