Depressing Christmas Songs

    Are there any holiday songs that just make you feel downright depressed, to the point that you'd endure self immolation just to make sure you'd never hear that song again?

    For me, there are two songs "Christmas Shoes" and "Dear Mr. Jesus."

    Every time I hear either of these songs I do a quick inventory of sharp or pointed objects in my vicinity so I can either slit my wrists or plunge them into my ears.

    What songs make you feel blue this holiday season?

    I love Christmas Shoes, but it definitely makes me cry every time I hear it.

    Christmas Shoes makes my look for an ice pick for my temples, but would remain a favorite of all the old, Christmas sweater wearing grannies mall shopping

    Last Christmas. He gave her his heart! And the very next day, she gave it away! This year, to save him from tears, he's going gay.

    It's bad enough when the guy who sounds like a raspier version of the "Butterfly Kisses" guy sings the song, but when they bring on the kid at the end. That's what really drives me to the edge.

    You know, as I sing the song in my head, I can't recall if they made the song gender specific. So he could have given his heart to guy. And then that's what might have led George to go trolling in park restrooms the next year. He was looking for someone special!

    Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney depresses me because it's the exception to the rule that artists on weed produce better shit than artists who aren't. With the dissonate Moog effects, etc., did they write that song for cheeba-blazed robots?

    All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth doesn't depress me so much as make me want to go on a tri-state killing spree.

    Thank God I haven't heard that song since I was like 13. I was listening to a top 40 countdown (Scott Shannon, I think) and he plays that song. I'm in the bedroom listening on my clock radio and my sister is in the living room playing Nintendo and listening to the same thing. The singer starts wailing about Jesus and sick sad poor kids and I start fuckin bawling. I walk into the living room to clear my head and there's my sister, sitting on the floor, staring at the radio and crying too.

    The only song that made me bawl on impact. Haven't heard it since, thank goodness. I'd probably drive off the road to end the misery if I did hear it.
