This is a great video that allows you to follow a transcription of this Christmas song released in December 1984. It was the most-played Christmas song of the 21st century in the UK until it was overtaken by “Fairytale of New York” in 2015. The drum track in this recording actually uses a Linn 9000 drum machine.
"All I Want for Christmas Is You" is a Christmas song performed by Mariah Carey and was released in October 1994. In November 2019 the song won three records in Guinness World Records for one of the best-selling and most recognisable Christmas songs, most streamed song on Spotify in 24 hours and most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song. I am sorry to say that the drum drum track on this song is programmed and not played by a live drummer!!
