The top holiday songs among global market participants

Yahoo Finance Live anchors discuss the top holiday songs for global market participants.

Video transcript

JULIE HYMAN: All right, and my favorite story today, Deutsche-- if you're not on Jim Reed's Deutsche Bank research list, this is something that circulates on Wall Street, on the media. He sends out all kinds of fun surveys. This was the latest, a new survey that shows the top holiday songs for global markets participants.

And as you can see, "All I Want for Christmas is You" is the top pick. "Last Christmas" by Wham, strong choice as well. There are a couple on there that I didn't know, one by the Pogues that I feel I should know, but I don't. Another one, "Driving Home for Christmas," that I did not know. But it was just fun to see what the top Christmas songs are. What's your top Christmas songs?

BRIAN SOZZI: Well, I mean, no surprise, but Mariah.

JULIE HYMAN: Mariah.

BRIAN SOZZI: And that is everybody's Christmas song. Jim's research throughout the year, besides this, just absolutely amazing. For me, no Kenny G. You know, I grew up listening to Kenny G Christmas music, him and his long hair and those CDs. Constantly have to putting them in for my parents. I miss it, and it should have been on this list. In fact, I'm gonna listen to it when I go home.

JULIE HYMAN: The two misses on this list for me, the two things that are not there that should be, the Waitresses, which is-- they do a great Christmas song. It's an '80s one. And Paul McCartney, "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time"--

[BUZZER]

--should be on there also.

BRIAN SOZZI: I agree with you.

JULIE HYMAN: OK--

BRIAN SOZZI: Did Michael Bolton have any Christmas music?

JULIE HYMAN: I'm sure he did.

BRIAN SOZZI: Yeah, I like Michael Bolton.

JULIE HYMAN: There's no Michael Bublé on the list, you know. Well, there's a lot of Sinatra because he's sang the originals, I guess, of a lot of those.
