The Holiday 100 dashes back to Billboard's charts menu, ranking the top seasonal songs of all eras via the same formula used for the Billboard Hot 100, blending streaming, airplay and sales data.

Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" – which surges from No. 17 to No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 – rules the Holiday 100 for a 58th week of the chart's 63 total weeks since the list launched in 2011; it has topped the seasonal survey for 43 consecutive weeks, dating to the start of the 2015-16 holiday season.

The only other Holiday 100 No. 1s to date: Justin Bieber's "Mistletoe" for a week in the 2011-12 holiday season; Pentatonix's "Little Drummer Boy" (one, 2013-14) and "Mary, Did You Know?" (two, 2014-15); and Ariana Grande's "Santa Tell Me" (one, 2014-15).

Carey's 1994 carol reigns with 22 million streams (up 57%), 15.6 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 105%) and 3,000 sold (up 70%) in the United States November 17-23, according to Luminate.

Rounding out the Holiday 100's top five are more classics, released between the 1950s and '80s: Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" (No. 2); Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock" (No. 3); Wham!'s "Last Christmas" (No. 4); and Burl Ives' "A Holly Jolly Christmas" (No. 5).

Meanwhile, two songs newly released this holiday season debut on the Holiday 100, both Amazon Music Original exclusives: Chloe's version of "Winter Wonderland" (No. 57, led by 3.5 million streams, up 130%) and Stephen Sanchez's "Silver Bells" (No. 85; 2.2 million, up 92%).
