Does anyone remember which iTunes position it reached in 2004? Or did it only have a resurgence in popularity in 2005 and 2006?

Interesting to see that it's #8 on the proper chart already. I think I remember its position would have been #8 in the actual Christmas week chart last year, had downloads been allowed.

I wonder how long it can be successful each year for, you'd think there'd come a time where everyone who wanted the song would already have it... like, why would they feel the urge to download it at Christmas 2008 and why didn't they in Christmas 2007 :p If you see what I mean.

Anyway it looks very unlikely that All I Want For Christmas Is You will remain in the Top 10 this week, it's predictably dived on UK iTunes - from #3 before Christmas to #17 :'(

I see what you mean. Perhaps we are still in the 'early' stage of the download era, that's why alot of people has been downloading old songs they might already have in CDs long time ago but are now lost/damaged. If people are able to 'maintain' their digital copies in the future, there wouldn't be a need to download the same song again.

One more thing, AIWFCIY's chart success in 2006 and 2007 wouldn't be possible if the chart rules didn't include download sales, there is no way it could re-enter the chart if the rules considered physical sales only like how the chart used to be.
