IO: Guilty pleasure Christmas songs

Ok, so confess... What Christmas songs do you love (and listen to a lot this time of year) which other people totally dislike, which are overplayed, corny, or just downright wrong?

I admit, I like Christmas songs, so my list would be long I think

That insipid loathsome song about that damned kid, those stupid shoes and his dead mom.

i generally don't care for many Christmas songs. but my guilty pleasure would have to be Silent Night by the Temptations. I also like Joy, which is a gospel song, and when done right can really take off.

I turn off the radio or flip stations when this song comes on.

I cannot stand it.

Okay hate, love, whatever, it's all good

I have to say, I don't like all Christmas songs... A lot of the ones that get overplayed on radio stations each year are kinda driving me nuts But there are some songs that aren't played a lot which can be nice to listen to... Something else than 'Last Christmas' or 'Wonderful Christmas Time'

One of our family favourites

My absolute favourite Christmas song is Feed the World I bought the 12" single years ago for a $1 and it's the best dollar I've ever spent.

I'm not a country music fan, but Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Family" is way up there on my list .

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.

And Adam Sandler's Haunakka songs. They're not Christmas songs, but they're played at almost the same time of year ....
