Friday Bottom 3: Christmas Songs

Inspired by Victor’s link to a site listing the most overplayed Christmas songs, I decided to list my bottom 3 Christmas songs of all time.  The truth is that all three of the bottom three are so bad that they should be listed as co winners of the #1 worst Christmas songs.  I am sorry, but I just hate these tunes.

Dishonorable Mention:

All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey – I loved it, until it was played so many times that I want to scratch my eyes out and jump off the Empire State building while drinking antifreeze every time I hear it.

Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms – Like the previous song by Mariah Carey, I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t attached to singing Christmas trees similar to the Billy Big Mouth Bass.

#3. The Christmas Song by Alvin and The Chipmunks – The voices are annoying enough, then add the goofy 3/4 waltzy bop timing with a polka feel, and you have a daggum horrible tune that everyone thinks is so cute.  NO IT’S NOT!

#2. Santa Baby sung by anyone – This version is Eartha Kitt who made the tune famous.  It’s annoyingness needs no description.

#1. Rockin Around the Christmas Tree performed by Brenda Lee – To me, this song sounds like fingernails scratching a chalkboard.  I hate this song.  I hate this song.  And for the record, I HATE THIS SONG.  There, I feel better now.

    Phillip has just made the Ebenezer Scrooge Hall of Shame..

  3. Ebenezer Scrooge probably liked these songs before the Ghosts visited him because they ruin Christmas!

  4. I do like “The Christmas Song”–when Nat King Cole sings it…

    But I have to agree with you, otherwise.

    Lighten up, pal.

  5. I absolutely love Nat King Cole’s Christmas Song, but that was a totally different song. I prefer Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire to the Chipmunks singing the Christmas Song.

  6. I struggle criticizing any Christmas song because I just love Christmas so much. I have to full-heartedly (sp?) disagree with you on Mariah’s song. That entire album is one of my favs. And I LOVE that song. I will agree with Jingle Bell Rock though – BLAH.

    I heard a Christmas song yesterday that I love and haven’t heard in a while… Tennessee Christmas. Love it.


  7. I love Christmas too. This is why I will stand for the honor and integrity of this sacred time of year by declaring its desocration by the likes of the Chipmunks, Brenda Lee, and Mariah Carey!

    May u be tied up, be forced to listen to Mariah Carey’s album, watch Alvin and the Chipmunk’s Christmas Special, and be shot by Marcela with the gun from ” A Christmas Story”…
