LOS ANGELES – Ever since Mariah Carey released “All I want for Christmas is You” in 1994, singers have been attempting to reach her holiday musical success.

Carey’s song became the best-selling holiday ringtone and has been covered by dozens of artists.  Let’s not forget the millions of times its been played at holiday parties and in malls across the U.S.

Has the Christmas classic met it’s match?  “Text Me Merry Christmas” by Straight No Chaser featuring Kristen Bell is making waves.

The song contains lines like “I don’t care if you spell things right, I just want to hear from you tonight.”

But SNC connects with a new generation: “A Facebook message isn’t quite as sweet, I need more from @you than just a tweet. A snap on snapchat doesn’t last, and voicemail, that’s from Christmas past.”
