Song Break: Christmas Edition

This second-best Christmas song (in my not-so-humble opinion), bested only by Mariah Carey's fabulous "All I Want for Christmas is You," isn't really about the holiday, but intense longing (a running theme throughout girl-group music). The song is pure joy, despite its melancholy subject, which, I guess, aptly describes the whole of the girl-group genre.
