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.
