Least favorite holiday song?

    I like Christmas music but there are some songs (and versions of songs) that I just despise.

    I hate "Winter Wonderland" rhyming "conspire" with "fire" just seems forced and wrong.

    When we had to sing in it elementary school, I would always sing "later on, we'll perspire, as we sit, by the fire."

    Anyway, it seems like a song designed not to offend anyone. Blecch.

    Any others?

    When I hear this one, I am Simply (Not) Having A Wonderful Christmas Time.

    Sorry, Paul. Love your body of work, but that's a major league stinker.

    The double-barrelled shotgun of holiday musical fail:

    "Santa Baby" and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"

    The library of Christmas suck is immense. "Little Saint Nick" by the Beach Boys is enough to make me want to destroy all of California in a rampage of vengeance. Out of the traditional English carols, I'd say that "Deck the Halls" sucks the eggnog out of Scrooge's withered phallus.

    Pop singers mangling Schubert's setting of "Ave Maria".

    a. NOT a Christmas song

    b. If you're going to sing in Latin, learn what it means and don't breathe in the middle of a fuckin' word.

    c. It's a beautiful song but it's not meant to be lugubrious and slow. Wallowing is unbecoming in a singer.

    Some of the least fave have already been mentioned, most notably Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time, which is almost hideous enough to go into a time machine and feed Lennon-McCartney songs like Winchester Cathedral or Incense And Peppermints, so the Beatles' popularity would never reach the heights they reached, thus preventing McCartney from having a solo career and keeping us from ever hearing that insipid song.

    We have this thread every year, but I'll throw in for All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth. All I want for Christmas is to punch that little fucker in the mouth, teeth or sans teeth.

    Jingle Cats version of White Christmas.

    The most painful thing I have ever had to let my eardrums endure.

    Captain Kirk and Bubbler one thing I have to say about your dissing of McCartney's Xmas hit: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Well, if you punch him in the mouth, he's gonna be needing more than two teeth, I surmise.
