All I Want For Christmas Is You - Recorded by Gerry Marsden- 1990.
Written and produced by Vernon and Darrell Woodward.
Another version of this song was Released in the U.K. in 1989 on the Songlife Label by The Woodward Brothers
Both versions BEFORE the Mariah Carey song.
The Woodward brothers version was sent to Clive Davis, president of Arista, in 1990 for possible recording by Whitney Houston. With Mariah Carey's connection to Davis, this may have been the inspiration for her now successful world wide song. Coincidence? Maybe, but obviously very hard to prove.
