Mariah Carey, "Merry Christmas II You"
For fans who've worn out their copy of the diva's first Christmas release from 1994, Carey returns with a mixed Santa's bag of goodies. Having scored with "All I Want for Christmas Is You" — included here in an "Extra Festive" remix — Carey offers up five originals including the bouncy "Oh Santa!" and the seasonal slow jam "When Christmas Comes." Much of the rest of the set is Carey applying her breathy pipes to familiar carols and hymns, including a skyscraping live take on "O Holy Night."
