Brought this up as my final thought on SRP this weekend.



As stated on the podcast, this song/poem is a trap. You can't hate it because it makes you look like an asshole, but the simple fact of the matter is that this song is so heavy handed its obnoxious. It's a good idea, the thought it there, but come on. It's up there with Christmas Shoes in that they were manufactured to make people cry. It's like the people that created them just went down the "sure to make people cry" list and just added all the generic components. I hate it. Because Santa is really going to have a fucking break down when he meets a soldier. Santa knows whats up.

And then there is this.



This is easily one of the worst fucking things I've ever heard in my life. Kill me now. KILL ME!!!!

And of course this one



This is NOT a Christmas song. No where is there any mention of the holidays. The only thing tying it to anything Christmas/Holiday related is the fact that its cold outside. The point of this song is that Dean Martin wants to bang a chick, and in the end, he succeeds. Somehow this is considered a Christmas song. Nothing wrong with liking the song (though I don't care for the song itself either) but this isn't a Christmas song. STOP PLAYING THIS FUCKING SHIT EVERY YEAR.

Add your own, maybe we can get enough for a good Nerdlog post.

I dont really like any Christmas songs. I really have to like the artist to get into any of them. I like the John Lennon one and a few Elvis ones.
But even some of the artists I normally enjoy do crappy Christmas songs.


I hate the noises and its so repetitive.


This is just the fucking worst.

And of course you mentioned Christmas Shoes already.

Any alvin and the chipmunks song is awful. I agree on those bait poems, I hate that shit, good job trying to make everybody feel shitty during the holidays. I actually laughed when santa broke down, wtf? He is santa.

i think i hate them all.

where i work they usually have on of the stations on where they play christmas songs right after thanksgiving. Its the same lineup of songs every day until Dec 26th. Well this year so many ppl complained they changed the station hahaha. Now every once in awhile you will hear a christmas song so its not that bad.

I'm curious to know what Christmas songs people actually like because I would never really leave any Christmas song on the radio if I was flipping through. Should there be another thread? haha

I can't believe I didn't mention that one. Yeah, I hate the Bruce one too.
Its just so cheesy. Rough and tough Bruce singing about Santa Claus. I can't find the real one. Here's a live one.

Easily one of the worst songs ever recorded.

I like some of the old stuff like Sinatra's songs. Transiberian Orchestra is cool too. And you gotta love the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. Home Alone's got some good shit too (thanks to John Williams).

With the exception of December 23-26 I don't want to hear it at all. My least favorite are any that they play in grocery stores on repeat.

Thats one of the few Christmas ones I actually like.... i think mostly because it's not as overplayed on the stations I used to listen to

My radiostation doesn't play Christmas music, thank god. However, I hate walking into stores and shit where it is playing. The absolute worst is when you're stuck in your buddy's car for a good 2 or so hours, and he's into the whole christmas music thing.

Terrible music + Buddy's awful singing + frigid weather + the only escape being death = worst time ever.

At KB Toys the Christmas music started to get mixed into our tapes in October. Then it was nonstop Christmas music from Nov - Dec. And TONS of bad songs. Lots of the hippo one.

Dude. When i worked at KB over christmas, this was the case. What a fucking nightmare. It was even worse the following year when i worked at the Deptford Mall Sam Goody. In addition to playing christmas music for a solid month, they had Shrek on repeat. and we had to wear Shrek ears. I swear i had that entire movie memorized after that.
