Mariah Carey performs at the 81st Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Pre-Tape at Rockefeller Center on Dec. 3, 2013 in New York City.

This time of year, it seems like there is no way to escape the constant sound of jingle bells echoing in your favorite holiday songs -- even on Spotify. This year, Spotify released data for the most popular and most streamed holiday songs.

Mariah Carey's classic hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" unsurprisingly tops the list for the most popular Christmas songs globally. Next is Wham!'s post-breakup holiday song "Last Christmas" and Michael Buble's version of "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" comes in at No. 3.

It's not all about the older holiday songs, though: Justin Bieber's slow jam "Mistletoe" comes in at No. 4, and Ariana Grande's fun pop track "Santa Tell Me" rounds out the top five.

When it comes to age group, the younger teens are listening to the a ca=pella Christmas song "Hey Good Lookin'" by boy band Why Don't We, while those in their 30s prefer Elvis Presley's less optimistic "Blue Christmas."
