That Paul McCartney song "Wonderful Christmas Time".

There is no Christmas song that is worse and none that they seem to play more on the local radio stations.

It implies the existence of other gods. (And yes, I know that some passages of the OT do the same thing--e.g. 'you shall have no other Gods before me--but it still bothers me.)
It bothers me becuase it's become part of the Christian Pop Culture fluff and bubbles

Don't look at me in that tone of voice.
No fluff and bubbles here, pal.

You have it turned up right? I personally like a little dirty crunch in there too :yes:
I've got a B3 layered with an over-driven guitar as my primary organ setup, and I like to fade it into a huge pipe organ setting and get the sound guy to crank the subs so I can get the floor shaking.

(We're going to do O Come All Ye Faithful close to the Third Day version, and I'm looking forward to some major pipe organ sound...)

Oh please!!!! Don't mention Our 'God is an awesome God'. That song took roost in my head for days and I'm afraid it will return. I listened to it just once. Never again I promise you. It's worse than some of the trash by Abba. In fact Dancing Queen is a good antidote to Our God... but of course it just substitutes Dancing Queen or some other trash. Where is 'It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a Mozart da da daaah' when I need it?

%#$$!!!

I like happy birthday Jesus, esp this one:

The Virgin Mary scene is great too!

Rich Mullins himself said that it was far from his best song and found it amusing that it was his biggest hit.

And Will, no offense, but you're reading too much into the song.

Anywhoo back on target: that song about the guy who's heart is broken, so this year he's going to "spend it with someone special." It's a sad thing to be outdone on your own song by... Britney Spears *shudders*

On the topic of Mullins, I'd have to say that his song "You Gotta Get Up" is my favorite modern Christmas song. It's part of his album "a Liturgy, a Legacy, and a Ragamuffin Band" in the second half (the legacy) where he juxtaposes Christianity with our secular heritage.

I don't like "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth."

I also don't like anything sung by Chipmunks.

Some of you hate my favorite Christmas songs.

Anyway, "Happy Birthday Jesus" is my least favorite Christmas song.

My daughter has lost not only two, but three front teeth. I asked if she wanted them for Christmas (like every other lame adult has asked her...) and she shrugged and said, "Nah"

Because you've only heard it regionally sung: "All I want for Christmas is my one front tooth."

You need a paradigm shift. :yes:

I can't believe it took 7 pages before someone mentioned this song. I guess it's sacrosanct amongst christian pipe smokers.

Then it would be four front teeth missing.
