As if on cue, José Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad" returns as No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Digital Songs (chart dated Dec. 24), just as it has each year since the chart was launched back in 2010. It's currently No. 2 on the Holiday Airplay chart. 

"I never would have thought that I would have created a monster with this song," the Puerto Rican singer told Billboard in a previous interview. "'Feliz Navidad' happens to be one of those songs that is not exclusively for Latinos -- it’s in both English and Spanish and I think that’s an advantage." 

After Feliciano recorded the jingle back in 1970 and it became a holiday classic, the bilingual Christmas song has been covered by many artists, including Canadian singers Céline Dion and Michael Bublé and The Three Tenors: Luciano Pavarotte, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. It was even covered by the Glee cast during season 4's 10th episode.

Below, Billboard rounds up the five most memorable "Feliz Navidad" covers:
