LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2008) -

Editors note: A photo is included with this release.

Magic, everyone's favourite music TV destination, reveals today that all we want for Christmas is a saucy Santa outfit, lots of fake snow, some reindeer and a killer voice, as Mariah Carey is crowned top of the charts in Magic's Favourite Christmas song poll. As nearly five thousand people flocked to vote for their favourite Christmas song via www.magic.co.uk, Mariah's 1994 smash 'All I Want for Christmas' hit the top of the pops.

The Pogues, Wham, Band Aid, even good old Cliff couldn't beat Mariah to the number one spot. Other notable 'talent' in the top 50 includes the classic one-time hit from Las Ketchup's, 'The Ketchup Song', the Crazy Frog's 'Last Christmas Crazy Frog' and even former Big Brother winner Craig's lacklustre Christmas song, 'At This Time of Year'.

Mariah will be content in the knowledge that her mix of glitz, glam, fake snow and reindeer has cemented her in our seasonal hearts forever.

Here's a rundown of the final top ten:

1. Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas
