Mariah Carey Sued

A guy who released a song called “All I Want for Christmas Is You” five years before MARIAH CAREY is suing her for $20 million. There’s nothing similar about the songs, though, so it’s not clear if he’s got a case. His name is Andy Stone . . . although he’s better known as Vince Vance from Vince Vance and the Valiants. The group released a song called “All I Want for Christmas Is You” back in 1989, five years before Mariah did it. Now, there’s nothing similar in the lyrics or the melody of the two songs. But Stone feels that Mariah’s song exploited his “popularity and unique style,” and caused confusion with his track. He also notes that his version received “extensive airplay” during the 1993 Christmas season. I guess he’s suggesting that Mariah’s version crushed his when it came out the following year. He’s seeking at least $20 million in damages.
