"Last Christmas" and "All I Want for Christmas Is You" are both original and acclaimed pop songs. While Wham! released their hit in 1984 and Mariah in 1994, both songs are among the greatest Christmas classics of all-time. But which is better?

Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is revered as the greatest Christmas song ever. According to Billboard, it's also the best-selling Christmas song ever. But does that make it the best?

"Last Christmas" is also one of the top 10 greatest-selling Christmas songs. But it has a completely different sound than the perky "All I Want for Christmas Is You." The Wham! hit has a smooth, soft rock feel to it. And it's more than a Christmas song—it's literally both a love song and slow jam. And let's not forget to mention, many artists have covered the 1984 hit over the years.
