Christmas muzak

Grandma may have gotten run over by a reindeer, but I want to run the song over with a 3-ton truck. And don’t even get me started about that fucking drummer boy kid. “Pa rum pum pum pum”, really? Did an 18-month-old write this song?

Let’s face it: most Christmas songs blow dead reindeer. And the ones that are tolerable—preferably sung by Bing Crosby or Elvis—are so overplayed that I want to hang myself with my Christmas lights Hark, the herald angels suck.

Silent night? If only.

Oooh tell me about it! Infact, someone bought me a reindeer that sings that 'grandma got ran over by a...' song. To annoy me I think! Let's jusy say that they've been successful.

Yeah, I hate most Christmas music too.

Hands down, the WORST Christmas song is "Santa Baby". Some grown woman adopts a little-girl voice promising Santa some hot sex if he brings her the right presents. There should be a law against sexualizing Santa because, you know, EW!

Ohhh-I so agree! Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey anyone? This idiotic drivel is why I stay out of stores between November and January. Thank God for online shopping.

Hallelujah. (No pun intended.)

My least favorite tune: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

Is it January yet?

The first time I really listened to Baby It's Cold Outside I thought, it's a freaking date rape song....

I can't come up with a "most hated" since i can't think of even one that i actually like .... Maybe "Fairy tale of NewYork" - although that might actually earn kudos for shoehorning the word "arse" into a Christmas song!

I can't think of any one song I hate, but I am so sick of hearing any Jackson 5 Christmas songs. Sirius plays them way too often - I'm in the car for a total of about 30 minutes a day and I swear I hear at least one Jackson 5 song each day.
