My LEAST Favorite Christmas Songs

With the holidays in full swing, two of my local radio stations have converted to Christmas music 24/7, 7 days a week. I do listen to holiday music this time of year, but it seems I change stations when the same dreadful songs come on...every single time.

I know many of you will disagree with me on at least some of these, but for one reason or another, the following songs make me cringe:

"All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth"
I totally get the cuteness of the lyrics in this song. What creeps me out is the fact that the "child" is actually an adult trying to sound like a kid. I hate that kind of stuff. All that annoying whistling is like fingernails across a chalkboard.

"Christmas Shoes"
Did you know this song is based on a stupid email chain letter from the 90s? The song is melodramatic, depressing, and tries too hard to evoke an emotional response. Also, the singer/narrator of the song is self-centered and makes the entire story all about HIM. God must have sent this poor kid to HIM to teach HIM a lesson. Whatever.

"Wonderful Christmastime"
Paul McCartney's musical equivalent of a loud, stinky fart is perhaps the worst song of any kind EVER. The farting synthesizer sound. The lyrics (ding dong ding dong ding dong ding). The last 2 minutes of the song where all you get is more farting synthesizer and ding dong dinging. When I do try to listen to this song, I have to wonder just how much LSD was Paul McCartney dropping when he wrote this?

Do you have any Christmas songs that you just cannot stand? I'll give you some of my most favorite holiday tunes next week to make up for these three.

Two Front Teeth is annoying. My least favorite is Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

Pat Hatt said...

Yep, first is sure annoying. The other two are meh at best to me too.

Santa Baby, Feliz Navidad, and just about any version of 12 Days of Christmas except the Mckenzies one.

Oh my, I needed a good laugh! I haven't heard the second one (to my knowledge) and I'm not going to after your description of it!

The Two Front Teeth song is the worse. I have never heard the other two. Christmas Shoes sounds pretty horrible though.

I hate the one about my two front teeth. There's also a version of Santa Clause is Comin' to Town sung by a boy that is SO annoying. I live Feliz Navidad though - it reminds me of the years we lived in New Mexico. And I always picture a little chihuahua dancing with a sombrero on his head. LOL

Yeah, I could see how those would annoy a person. Me, I just avoid Christmas songs unless it's emotionally hooked to a positive memory. :)

Now I love Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. However, I really like Carols and my main complaint is that mostly these days they sound like dirges.
