LyricFind reveals the Top 10 Holiday Lyrics of 2016

admin Tue Dec 20, 2016 News

The year-end holidays have their own songbook. It’s a favourite time to get together and sing some seasonal classics, or launch into a spirited solo in the car or at the office party. And while we all know the songs, how many of us know all the words?

LyricFind, the world leader in lyrics display, has ranked the top ten most searched for holiday lyrics. The top 10 are almost a complete salute to midcentury songwriting, apart from Mariah Carey’s essential if not viral holiday hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. “It’s no surprise that the majority of holiday lyrics being searched for are the originals,” says Catherine Fournier, LyricFind’s Marketing Manager. “It’s a time of comfort and tradition, and the lyrics in these songs reflect that.”

LyricFind is the licensing partner for major search engines, streaming services, lyric websites, and other music platforms across the globe, and gathers data from millions of searches and displays.
