Can you remind me who had a hit with this song? It's about time to listen to it again.

The singer was:

Mariah Carey - the song is her 1994 festive hit, All I Want For Christmas Is You.

You can work this out by noticing that the words listed here are:

the first words of each line of the song:

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you (You, baby)

(Oh,) I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
And I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake
To hear those magic reindeer click...


etc.

PS When you say "It's about time to listen to it again", I guarantee you I've been hearing this over and over for weeks already!
