Christmas Songs Post: Best Cheesy Music Video, “Last Christmas” or “All I Want for Christmas is You (2019)”

This is REALLY HARD!!!! One of them has feathered hair, the other has lots of insane costumes. POPKA! I expect a careful judgement from you!

Wham! The 80s classic! With sweaters and hair and skiing and stuff! “Last Christmas”

And Mariah Carey! The song was always great, but there wasn’t a music video that was really worthy. Until now! “All I Want for Christmas is You”

  1. I saw a bat signal.

    This was harder than I thought! I hadn’t seen the new Mariah Carey video and it is a very strong contender.

    BUT in the end I have to give it to Last Christmas, because the Mariah Carey one is expensive and looks expensive, and though the snowman with the woman’s head and the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes reference were great, it’s not 80s hair, George Michael pretending to be straight, hideous costume jewellery that is ***symbolic***, and a cut rate video that was an excuse for everyone to go skiing.

    • Yes! I was thinking this would be a walkover for Last Christmas, but Mariah really made a good argument for herself.

      But really, LAST CHRISTMAS!!!! I want all their hair, and also all their sweaters. But I don’t want to go skiing.

    • It’s been almost 40 years, and they are still the one to beat for cheesy Christmas videos

    • Very valid argument. Mariah is the newest Christmas classic, but Wham is the first Christmas song I bought on my ipod. It’s that vital.

  2. All I Want for Christmas is IMHO the best new Christmas song of the past 30 years, it’s fun and it makes me happy over and over. Love that she wrote it and it’s been recorded by all kinds of people and chugs right along making her millions of dollars. The version you shared is full diva Mariah, but this version has pride of place in my heart (and made me appreciate for the first time how good the song is that it’s still fun to listen to when played on classroom instruments with Jimmy Fallon and some adorable children as back up singers).

  3. I’m going to have to go with Last Christmas here. Everything about that video is glorious (George Michael’s bleached blonde hair, the perms on everyone, and melodramatic staring). I feel like this is the only time where it’s socially acceptable to watch this video every day…
