Worst Christmas Songs Of All Time?

You know em, but you don't love em.


Trainwrecks, absolute messes of classic holiday songs. Anyone have their "favorites"? Is there a song that every year you hear it it just seems to get worse? A song remade by William Shatner that you aren't dying to hear?

Mine are:

- I Want A Hippopatumus (sp) for Christmas ( annoying!)
- Holly Jolly Christmas (just hate the way the guy sings it)
- Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (do I have to say more??)
- God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (everytime I hear it it makes me want to yak, I have NO idea why, lol)



Discuss.

This might have been funny the first time it was played. Now it is

I can't stand "O Christmas Tree".

Any song recorded in the last 40 years that is Christmas-themed.

Seriously.

Except Baby Please Come Home.

Hello,

A few weeks ago a Dutch radio station did a survey for the worst Christmas song. The winner (or loser, that depends on how you look at it) was Wham with Last Christmas.

C ya!

Marty

P.S. There are many great Christmas songs recorded the last 40 years.

I'm with you on that one. With a few exceptions, I don't like Christmas music.

after reading this, i thought i'd be more specific...

simply having a wonderful christmas time: paul mccartney
santa baby: madonna
merry christmas baby: bruce springsteen
winter wonderland: eurythmics (this is solely because i'm fucking sick of it, thanks to my dad for playing it literally for a half hour straight every day, every year)

any depressing christmas song that sounds more like a funeral song. i thought this was supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year!

whenever any teeniebopper group records some lovie dovie "new" christmas song. they're like all oh boo hoo i don't have my baby for christmas type songs.

Santa Baby!

I like most old Christmas songs from the 30s and 40s (I'm hopelessly old-fasioned when it comes to things like Bing Crosby) and carols. But I haven't heard any "new" Christmas songs that I have liked.

I like:

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Coldplay
Maybe This Christmas by Ron Sexsmith
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Jack Johnson
Sweet Secret by Neil Finn
Merry Xmas Everybody by Oasis

uh....that's all I can think of.
