MUSIC REPORTS IDENTIFIES TOP 30 MOST-RECORDED HOLIDAY SONGS USING SONGDEX® REGISTRY

“Silent Night” and Mariah Carey Bookend the List

Los Angeles, CA (December 5, 2017): As holiday songs increasingly fill the airwaves and our eardrums, Music Reports, the world's most advanced rights administration platform, has compiled a list of the 30 most recorded holiday songs. Songdex®, the largest database of music rights in the world, contains records of both musical compositions and the recorded versions of those compositions, allowing the company to identify here the all-time most recorded holiday songs.

Sentimental holiday favorite “Silent Night” tops the list with 137,315 recorded versions, followed by chestnuts “White Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “The Christmas Song” and “Winter Wonderland” filling out the top five. Impressively, Mariah Carey’s (and Walter Afanasieff’s) more modern classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” rounds out the list, with 13,419 recorded versions just since the song’s debut in 1994 - a feat rivaled only by “Last Christmas,” written by George Michael, with 17,806 versions recorded since 1984.

“With the holidays just round the corner, we thought it was a fun opportunity to showcase the depth of the Songdex registry,” said Bill Colitre, Vice President and General Counsel of Music Reports, Inc. “In addition to identifying all of the different recordings of beloved songs, Songdex provides detailed, relational access to song splits and writer collaborations, performance rights affiliations, publisher and label contact information, and much more.”
