Christmas Songs/Carols you hate

Post by tuttle » Fri Dec 10, 2010 1:30 pm

4 years running now, I've banned certain christmas songs in my household. That means, if ever they come on in my presence that I have automatic veto power to change the song. Each year I ban one song. Once a song has been banned, it is forever banned unless I say so.

Here they are:

2007- The Christmas Shoes
2008- Santa Baby (any version)
2009- Step Into Christmas by Elton John
2010- Last Christmas by WHAM!
"You're my kind of stupid" -Mal Reynolds

"Better to die cheerfully with the aid of a little tobacco, than to live disagreeably and remorseful without." -CS Lewis

Jingle Bell Rock has got to go.

Any traditional Christmas Song that some Mariah Carey wannabe has bastardized into a ("lets see how many notes I can vamp into Oh Holy Night") travesty of musical excellence with vocal gymnastics.

You hear it at Lowes and Walmart mostly. I usually think. A christmas eve with Tarzan and Michael Bolton album where someones jerking on their gonads while they sing Silent Night.

Oh yeah Any Christmas song by Manheim Steamroller too. Thats just plain wrong.

I get very annoyed with the little drummer boy. Who plays a drum for a baby anyway?

Rockin Around the Christmas Tree is particularly loathsome to me, especially when that saxophone kicks in. (Q - What's five saxophones at the bottom of the ocean? A - A good start.)

Santa Baby doesn't bug me as much but I'd just as soon not hear it.

Blue Christmas is right in there as well but it's good for a laugh when my son does his impression of Elvis singing it. Pretty much gets it right on the money.

At one church where I was organist the handbell choir always played "White Christmas" at the Christmas Eve service. The first time I heard this, I told the director I was surprised that they played something other than a tradional religious song. She said "White Christmas isn't a traditional religious song?" She was serious.

This was my first thought as well.


Also, "We need a little Christmas" I shudder just thinking about it.

Any country type song with some "touching" story - I can't stand em any other time of the year, why would I like em now?

A whole host of others... I'm kind of grouchy

At the risk of gravely insulting a fellow CPSer, I have to say that Onyx' version of "Your a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" is lacking.

I despise Feliz Navidad. The Little Drummer Boy is also irritating.
