    I'm going to go with drugged out of his mind. That came on the radio a bit ago, and my reaction was, "OH HELL NO!" before changing the station.

    I hear they had good drugs back in the 60's (or whenever he wrote that awful piece) though...

    I am a sucker for Christmas music and have tons of it.

    The two tunes I can think of that really annoy me are:
    Elmo & Patsy's "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"
    and Bruce Springsteen's "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town."

    Nothing against Mr. Springsteen and his body of work, but I never have liked his version of the song and avoid it if possible.

    Then again, I like McCartney's "Wonderful Chritmas Time" and Wham's "Last Christmas." So there's no accounting for taste. haha...

    Has anyone heard Annie Lennox's new Christmas album? I can actually see myself listening to it year after year, it's that good. And it's $1.99 on Amazon. The video for 'God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen' is sublime. Here is the link.

    Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime....don't get me wrong, I love most of Macca's work - apart from the smug stuff like this. This song drives me crazy, together with its 'all-singing-down-the-pub' video. Yuck

    I had the misfortune to hear the gods-awfuls 'hippo' song over the weekend. Gah! Christmas can't get over with soon enough for me!

    I too hate Jose Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad." Hate, hate, hate it! Always have. And, as a top fan of Paul McCartney's, even I have to agree his lil' Wonderful Christmastime is a drag. The zip-zing sound following the line about the children sing their song sounds like a tiny kitty stuck in a chimney. Ack!

    Now, speaking of cats, anyone love the cats meowing "Blue Christmas"? Can't find it, but found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9LqRl7tqf4

    Kind of right up there with ol' Jose!

    I LOVE Christmas music. But The Christmas Shoes is evil. It makes me nauseous. That is no joke.

    I heard this song yesterday when I was Christmas shopping at Gordman's. I hadn't heard it for years and I enjoyed hearing it again. It sure beat hearing "Santa Baby."

    Its a fucking great song. Odd that Kool and the Gang were there. Way better than We Are the World as Upset stated but not nearly as good as Musicians For Free Range Chickens:

    Ichabodius, if memory serves Kool and the Gang just happened to be in town, and were asked if they wanted to participate. Since the gathering wasn't named something exclusive like UK for Africa, it was not a problem.

    glad to know I'm not the only one who hates the Paul McCartney song. I was Christmas shopping a few years ago and every bloody shop was playing it, total nightmare.

    I actually wouldn't mind hear Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmas Time since its been quite awhile since I heard it anywhere. Interesting thing about that song, about 15 years ago when radio stations started doing the Christmas 24/7 thing ABC Radio ( when they had the Dallas based Satellite Music Network ) actually sent out a memo to various stations who used their service such as ours with a list of Christmas tunes that "should not be played because they didn't test very well with the audience". The McCartney tune was one of them not because it sucked but because the song had came out in 1979 a "bad" year for many with Jimmy Carter, recession, the Iran hostages, etc... Other songs I can remember being on that list were Dolly Parton's Hard Candy Christmas because the song was in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas ( not family friendly ) and Band Aid's Do they Know its Christmas ( ABC called the tune a dated novelty as they did with We Are the World by USA for Africa ). The was a Garfield the cat Christmas tune that was on the list I seem to recall where ABC called it "..way too much a cartoon" but for some reason ABC said that the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas tune would be OK. Figure that one out.

    ..of course not everyone took ABC's "suggestions" as the last word.

    I know it's been mentioned but it is a new holiday. That stupid Wham song and the McCartney song. It makes me cringe. Right now I'm being a huge Grinch but they all annoy me. I hope to get some HoHoHo soon.

    Don't like sexy X-rated-mas junk like ANY version of "Santa Baby" (and as for that Mariah Carey business-- GAAAH, EYE and EAR BLEACH!!! STAT!!!)
    Or creepy what-were-they-THINKING-about head-messin' songs like "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." Or the always-abominable "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer." Yeah, they tried to gloss THAT one over with one of those equally-annoying ubiquitous TV "specials", but sorry, there's a nasty death in the song. Real cheery stuff--- hear it once, you might chuckle; hear it 500 times, turn off the radio, put cotton in your ears, ANYTHING to make it go away.
    And when the station plays three versions of ANY song/carol in an hour.... Jeepers, I hate the 24/7 Christmas song cycle. I play them sparingly myself until a week prior.

    I agree. I love the Beatles, but that McCartney song is not his best work (to say the least).

    Also, if it's any Christmas song I cannot stand for the life of me, it's "Twelve Days of Christmas." Seriously, we get the point after three days.

    With my likes and dislikes, I think the worst Christmas song is anything sung by Mel Torme and/or Robert Goulet.

    "Santa Baby" is even worse when high school students sing it. For many years our radio station would air school Christmas concerts that would air on Christmas day..of course I was the one who had to go around the schools to tape them. The middle schools and private schools weren't too bad but the high schools..every year..SANTA BABY and every year it was the same...A girl comes out, usually dressed in a combo Santa elf and cheerleader outfit dances like a stripper at a bar while singing Santa Baby while the guys on stage and in the audience would scream "Yeah Baby..WOO HOO". So predictable !!!!!

    Y'all have hit most of the tunes on my list of the worst, but I'd add any version of O Holy Night that involves massive amounts of trills and runs and sixteenth notes and octave leaps. It's a gorgeous song, so just sing it, people.

    Also, Amy Grant's version of The Most Wonderful Time makes me want to hurl. I think it's her weird-ass pronunciation of the word "most".

    All of them, I avoid the radio starting from the day after Halloween and up until the day after New Year, and listen to Spotify with my premade music list of the music I like.
