The queen of the fur-trimmed mini-dress has traded in her wind machine for a snow machine for yet another Christmas album - and this first single is sounding... pretty darn good actually! Wait, wait: hear me out! After all, isn't this the same woman who wrote one of the greatest Christmas pop songs of all time back in 1994? Well, 'Oh Santa!' has it all, handclaps, gospel singers, an instantly catchy hook - my God, it's like a festive 'Hey Ya!', only with more whistle notes. And that's before we even get into fantastically mental lyrics like "The tree’s all sparkly and gold/But inside I feel so cold." Oh, Mariah!
