Every year again: Mariah Carey conquers the singles charts. When it comes to albums, the Rolling Stones are ahead.

Mariah Carey is still at number one in the German charts with “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. It is now the 15th number one week for the Christmas pop hit from 1994. In the single charts this week, holiday titles make up more than 50 of all 100 positions, as GfK Entertainment announced on Friday as an investigator for the Official German Charts.

Following Carey, as in the previous week, are Wham! (“Last Christmas”), Shakin’ Stevens (“Merry Christmas Everyone”) and Chris Rea (“Driving Home For Christmas”). This time in fifth place is “Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming)” by the singer Melanie Thornton, who died in 2001.

The highest newcomer in the single charts is at position 27: “3 Haselnuss” by Jaques Raupé & Felix Harrer. The song brings together “the theme tune of the cult film “Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella” with modern techno beats,” explained GfK Entertainment.

In the album charts, Wincent Weiss falls from the top to tenth place with “Wincent’s White Christmas”. The Rolling Stones (“Hackney Diamonds”) rise from the four to the one. Ben Zucker is new on the Zwei with the album “Today not!” a. Music legend Peter Gabriel falls slightly from second to third place with “I/O”. Andrea Berg climbs from eight to four with “Christmas”. Marius Müller-Westernhagen is still in fifth place with “Westernhagen 75 (18 songs: 1974 – 2023)”.
