Your Turn

The Christmas song or version that you hate. I will go first. Any Christmas song by Maroon 5. I hear Adam Levine's ego in every word.

Think I'm going to have to go with Enty on this one.🤔

Any Christmas song period and fuck Maroon 5

MyDogSmiles said...

I'm not a fan of any Christmas music.

Moose said...

Every soul singer and band (and people who think they can sing soul mousic) in the world thinks they have to cover Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas". Hathaway did it perfectly the first time, and just about every cover is laughable in its awfulness.

Wings

Fuck Wings

Brayson87 said...

Oh wait, Sam Smith's Christmas stuff is pretty annoying too.

Tuesdi said...

I cannot stand Mariah Carey's song. It is HORRIBLE.

RandomJ18 said...

I'm not really a fan of Christmas music unless, they are originals.

Tricia13 said...

I love these answers! I am not a huge fan of it either...only the Irving Berlin oldies...That said~ Last Xmas and the Mariah song make me wanna throw myself off a very high building. My daughter is doing a recital the the Wham song which makes it all a bit awkward

Unknown said...

Absolutely abhor I want a hippopotamus for Christmas. It's like nails on a chalkboard for me.

Dk52 said...

Love White Christmas.

Loved Lil Jon's song, he made me believe in Christmas music again 🎅🤗

Ashanti's two (shocking I know) Christmas CDs, and as much as I love Beyonce I HATED the Destiny's Child Christmas cd.

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

That text me merry Christmas song is pure, unadulterated shit.

parissucksliterally said...

ANY version of "Santa Baby".
Gah, I fucking LOATHE that song.

cocktailhour said...

I reached my lifetime limit on Feliz Navidad at age 17, so it's been a rough 30 years!

@Random, Dropkick Murphys also have a good original, "The Season's Upon Us"

Endless list.... Slade sits atop it! Also heard Billy idol's demented venture into Xmas crap by mistake recently...can never unhear that!

cat said...

Taylor Swift "Last Christmas"

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

I don't really hate any because it's so easy to avoid. I mostly prefer the classics, though, Burl Ives, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the like.

I Know Nothing said...

I HATE "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" followed closely by anything from Alvin and the Chipmunks.

orchidbone said...

I forgot Cliff Richard...any song by him...Xmas or otherwise....creeps me out.

Derp said...

Still waiting for “I caught money cuckolding daddy with Santa, Marlon Brando and a mailbox”

Derp said...

Mommy! FFS. Apple you are idiots.

Brayson87 said...

The Killers - Don't Shoot Me Santa is a pretty good original to hide in Xmas party playlists

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. That’s also the fingers down blackboard song for me. It’s really old with lisping in the lyrics. Ugh. Im not a big fan of Christmas music except for Fairytale of New York.

Hotbox said...

Agreed. I can’t escape it either. It seems like it plays in every store & on every station!

Bruno15 said...

Anything from Mariah Carey

Moose said...

on the other hand, 2 highly rec'd pieces of Christmas music:

1. The Chieftain's "The Bells Of Dublin" - simply gorgeous, with fantastic guest appearances by Elvis Costello, Rickie Lee Jones (her "O Holy Night" will bring you to tears), Marianne Faithful and others.

2. Scott Weiland and STP's cover of "Christmas Time is Here" (the song from "A Charlie Brown Christmas").

TeeHee@U said...

Besides "Angels Amoung Us" by Alabama ...I HATE kids singing...especially in Christmas songs.

But, besides that: Mariah Carey: All I want for Xmas. And, TLast Christmas by Taylor Swiiftiebitch.

txredhd said...

I absolutely hate "Christmas Shoes".

zerooptions said...

"grandma got run over by a reindeer" and of course pariah careys "all i want for christmas is you"

V said...

Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys and I would like to second the person who said fuck Wings.

Sunkist said...

Yes...Hippo Christmas is the worst. And why did they have to change Baby it's Cold Outside? Who cares!? Don't sing it or listen to it if it is soooooo offensive to your sensibilities and teetering stability

Humor Me said...

"All I want for Christmas is You" / Mariah Carey

Love all the originals - very few covers are as good as the original classic Christmas songs.

Unknown said...

I still don't understand why Kitty has not been publicly exposed yet.
What happened to those photographs found at the railway station incriminating him?

Rocky Jim said...

Bruce Springsteen's "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Hate it from start to finish.

bonnjill said...

Those fucking Christmas Shoes

Boo Kitty said...

Wordy McWord.

OKay said...

I hate Mariah Carey's Xmas song so, so F'ing much.

But there is nothing worse than ANY version of Last Christmas not sung by George Michael.

Flossie_666 said...

Bob Dylan. Nice musician. Love hisback catalogue. When I hear him sing the Christmas songs I just can't.

ElCartero said...

"We Need a Little Christmas"

Ann said...

The dogs barking the Christmas carol. I love dogs but hate that hideous song.

E said...

"Tonight thank god it's them instead of you"--every time we hear this song as a group we always sing along very loudly to this one line. It's such a pretentious, just what you'd expect from these types.

And just where DID all the money go, Sir Bob?

Guesser said...

"Santa Baby" is truly awful, and it gets remade worse and worse. @Brayson87,the Killers do a Christmas song yearly,my favorite being "Joel the Lump of Coal". No one said "Peace on Earth/ The Little Drummer Boy" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie for a favorite ,so I did. Also Rob Halford "Oh Holy Night". They played "Thank God it's not Christmas" on the grocery store music yesterday.

Guesser said...

@E, Bob is rather wealthy isn't he? Yes that line always shook me.

Goodau said...

Santa Baby by anyone.
Frank Kelly's Christmas Countdown. The Irish comedy version of 12 Days of Christmas. It was funny for the first few years then became stultifying.

Andy said...

"Jingle Bell Rock." Any version. I absolutely detest it

Andy said...

And South Park ruined "O Holy Night" forever for me.

KnitWit said...

Love Ertha Kitt singing Santa Baby and Frank Sinatra's Christmas

Hate the Chipmunks, Maria, Streisand Christmas efforts

Fuchsia said...

All of them. Everyone here already mentioned the main worst ones...

I also hate “Christmas Wrapping” by The Waitresses. Oh, and any Christmas song from the Jackson 5. Especially “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.”

I’ve had my fill of Christmas songs so now I just listen to classical Christmas music during the holidays.

Fuchsia said...

Oh, forgot one.

“Hey Santa” by Wilson Phillips. 😑

Anonymous said...



George's "Last Christmas" is the only Christmas song I like.
Rest well George. Gave a fortune to charity.
The media are snakes. Literally. Demons.
Hope you're in a far better dimension, George~~~

Sd Auntie said...

Chipmunks signing any tune...uggh

Sd Auntie said...

Yes @moose!!

DJS NOLA said...

omg I hate Maroon 5 and christina aguilera ones... she literally turns a 2 minute xmas song into 5 minutes of ear torture

Vince said...

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer is awful.

Mango said...

Not a big fan of Christmas songs although I do love Carol of the Bells and the sheer magnificence of Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mannheim Steam Roller songs. If I'm going to play Christmas music, that will be it. I have the Vince Guaraldi Peanuts Christmas CD somewhere because my father loved it. It's also pretty good.

Before Thanksgiving I heard cover versions of "Last Christmas" and "All I want for Christmas is You" in stores. So tacky, for several reasons.

Pogue Mahone said...

Santa Baby: it's so greedy and materialistic and goes against the giving spirit of Christmas.

MattChoder said...

I hate most Christmas songs, but the ones that get me are covers of classic Christmas songs. There was a Justin Beiber cover of Santa Claus is Coming to Town that used to play at the retail job I used to work at that drove me to ego death. Thankfully, due to being a manager, I figured out how to change the date on the store music player that is never played Christmas Music during December. Worked great until I heard that song playing in May and had to go change it before people noticed.

lintmag said...

Any version of Little Drummer Boy, 2 Front Teeth, or Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - ugh.

MichiganMama59 said...

Lennon/Ono song
