I second "Santa Baby", but I'll add "This Christmas"! Good God, that's overplayed every year.

1) There was one hideously depressing one we had to do in high school chorus. The chorus teacher that year wanted desperately to marry this composer/arranger guy; consequently we did *everything* he wrote. So here we'd be, doing a holiday concert at a retirement home, with this horrible thing about "it doesn't seem like Christmas without a Christmas tree ... without stockings hung by fireside ... without little ones to see...". And these poor old folks parked in this rest home would be weeping. Bimbo chorus teacher thought it was wonderful how *moving* it all was.

2) Anything with a sucky alto line. The first & second sopranos get the bouncy fun part. We get: "Ding, ding." "Hey." (*pause*) "Hee-hee-hee." "Ding, ding" "Right." Name that tune, anyone? Y'all know it!

Had to switch the radio station at work because they had peppered in Christmas songs with their normal playlist. Let me add "Snoopy's Christmas", the follow-up to "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron", by the Royal Guardsmen.

Let me also add the instrumental (original) version of "Sleigh Ride" where they make musical instruments sound like horse trotting (and the bit at the end where they imitate a horse neighing). I hate that.

Let me also also add "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". I'll spare you the gigantic rant I made about it on Facebook, but suffice it to say that if you really think about it, it's creepy and not cute (like I assume it was intended).

I guess what I'm saying is, I really don't like Christmas songs much.

"The Christmas Shoes" and "Mary, Did You Know?" are the only ones that really bother me.

I hate any song I've heard for the 10th time in a week on the same radio station. That pretty much covers every Christmas song except for the good stuff; Bing Crosby or Nat King Cole.

When you are not in a Christmas mood, all these songs can be grating and just make you feel all the worse.

I really don't like the demanding ones, that want you to be happy or ELSE. Like, "We need a little Christmas, right this very minute" and "Bring us some figgy pudding and bring it right now!"

That Paul McCartney song always makes me shake my head at how absurdly happy it is. It's just so ....corny!!

According to Sir Bob Geldof, 'Do they know it's Christmas' is pretty bad.

But my Xmas tree up on Advent Sunday just gone. Still had the tinsel in it from last year. Bonus

My most hated - Any Christmas song performed by a modern artist trying to put their own modern slant on it. Except Bruce Springsteen, who rocks.

Oh man. Easily "Baby It's Cold Outside" and "The Man With All The Toys".

The worst offender of them all though would be "Christmas Shoes". There will never be a worse song.

I didn't think anything could be worse than that Paul McCarthy Christmas song until I heard about Barbara Streisand's version of Jingle Bells: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2lRSk0MWAY

      I know he's the "reason for the season" but a song about some kid's Mom going to meet him just doesn't seem very festive. Sue me.


    If you're down on "Christmas Shoes", you will probably appreciate comedian Patton Oswalt's take on same (warning, NSFW):






Good god, even a comedian's spoken description of the song depresses me. Forget the actual song. Yeeeow.

That Oswalt bit was fantastic. A belated thank you for that.

Any modern "rock light" remake of traditional Christmas songs pretty much. Hands off my carols.

Katy Perry's version of "White Christmas" is a total trainwreck of a song.

I totally forgot to add anything by Mannheim Steamroller. I wish for that band to be eternally hit with EMPs anytime they attempt to play their "music".

It's good to know that I'm not the only one who hates the 'Christmas Shoes' song.

My real peeve with Christmas songs is not the songs themselves, but the stations that play them. Locally, there are at least three FM stations that change their format as early as before Thanksgiving to play the same 30-40 holiday songs over and over and over again 24/7. It's one of the reasons why I got XM radio. So what happens? They do the same thing and remove the big band and love channels for holiday songs. I don't get that; they have to have a channel or two that isn't being used, why turn over an active channel?

It's not that I'm not in a festive mood. I like to listen to holiday songs once in a while. Repeat: ONCE IN A WHILE. Not every minute of every hour of every day for nearly a month and half straight. I like to think I'm not being a grinch and am not the only one who gets annoyed by this kind of thing every year.

Boff, you need to hear this version.

Personally, I hate "Little Drummer Boy" (even the Joan Jett version). Those constant barrump-papum-pums drive me up the wall.

Best Christmas song, of course, is "Fairytale of New York," but interestingly every cover I've ever heard of it is awful.

The original version of "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" by Spike Jones and His City Slickers with vocals by George Rock.
