I'm making an Apple Poll based on this thread: https://permies.com/t/60678/worst-Christmas-songs#609378. What is your least-favorite Christmas song? What one makes you cringe? Or are there a bunch you hate? Vote here!



And, if you have songs not on the list, mention them and I (or another Gardener/Steward) will add it in for you!!!

I nominate:

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Up on the Housetop



Hate them both so much!  They get stuck in my head and I find myself singing them.  UGH. 

Why can't nice Christmas songs get stuck in my head??

For those who don't know how bad "Christmas Shoes" is, try to watch this uplifting video...

That Santa's Sleigh is confusing and horrible all at the same time. I watched it with my husband (a musician) and our 4 year old son.

My husband's running commentary, said with utter revulsion and astonishment: "Someone took acid and sat down at a keyboard. This song does not know where it's going.
It's a musical blender. It's like they took parts of Halloween music and Christmas music and put them together. It doesn't know what it's trying to be. It's a train wreck."

My son, on the other hand: "I want to watch it again."

I guess we know who the target audience is!

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I added in the songs people mentioned.

Baby its cold outside, never heard that no means no.

They are playing Christmas music in the prisons next week.  Part of the punishment.

When asked when they'd know it's over, in the early 80s,  Keith Richards, of The Rolling Stones, said,  "When we make a Christmas album."  This was not long after that horrible live aid thing and a Springsteen embarrassment.

I was thinking about the sick minds that create this stuff. And I realized that their efforts have been rather lackluster.

Here is my version of the worst Christmas song ever.

A five-year-old Michael Jackson sings that he saw Mommy doing a lot more than Kissing Santa Claus under the Christmas tree. Then we hear two shotgun blasts, as mr. Jackson blows them away.

They reanimate into Christmas zombies. The rest of the song has the appearance of Thriller, as the corpses reanimate, creating Christmas zombies. All of the children get in on the act of hacking the heads off of the zombies, with garden implements. I think there should be a video.

You thought Santa's super sleigh was bad...



What's even worse, is I have this on cassette tape.
