Hold onto those Santa Claus hats, because the impossible has happened. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is no longer the most-played Christmas song. PlayNetwork, a company that creates playlists for more than 400 stores, has compiled a list of the 20 songs consumers will hear most this holiday season — and Carey’s 1994 hit has been bumped down to number 2.

Instead, The Shins’ cover of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime,” has claimed the top spot. See a list of the 20 most popular holiday songs according to PlayNetwork below.
