Frosted windowpanes, candles gleaming inside...
And many more Christmas songs blaring from various sources.
Don't get me wrong. I love me some good Christmas music. I just like variety. And I don't appreciate the same song being played within 6 hours of previous playing-- even if it's a different person singing. It's still the SAME song.
I know everybody has their favorite Christmas songs. And I also know everybody has Christmas songs they absolutely can't stand. So I am writing today about those horrible Christmas songs-- I have taken care and weighed many options and compiled a list of my 10 least favorite Christmas songs. Feel free to disagree (But really, you shouldn't because these are BAD).
Christmas Songs I Wish Weren't...
- Christmas Shoes- Newsong
Cheesy beyond all cheese. I feel no sympathy for the pathetic child in the song. So sue me.
- Santa Baby- ANY VERSION
Horrible lyrics. What is she thinking-- singing to a creepy, fat man who comes into her house in the middle of the night?!? So wrong. I'll pass.
- Santa Claus is Coming to Town- Bruce Springsteen
I know this song is considered a classic-- but this version really rubs me the wrong way. I think it's the way he shouts the lyrics. Lame.
- Happy Birthday Jesus
No... Chances are Jesus wasn't even born around December. And what's with the children singing? Just stop.
- I Want a Hippopotamus
This woman has a super annoying voice. And the lyrics don't make any sense. All I want for Christmas is for her to STOP SINGING!
- Feliz Navidad
What the heck is the deal with this song? Is it just an easy way to teach our kids Spanish? Doubtful. It's repetitive and entirely overplayed.
- Where Are You Christmas- Faith Hill
One word comes to mind: Barf. Where did Christmas go? It ran away after listening to this song.
- Grown-Up Christmas List- Amy Grant
And I quote: "No more lives torn apart, that wars would never start, and time would heal our hearts. And everyone would have a friend, and right would always win, and love would never end..." I need to watch the Hallmark channel now...
- Blue Christmas- Elvis
I have never been a fan of the King's voice. And this song does anything BUT get me into a holly-jolly mood.
- Chipmunk Christmas Song (Hula-Hoop)
The chipmunks... Enough said.
And what about you? Feel free to share your likes/dislikes. I am always looking for more to add to my list.
