Christmas Songs that Suck
« on: December 3, 2003, 12:07 PM »
The local oldies station plays Christmas music 24-7 from right before Thanksgiving until New Year's.  A guy in our office insists that the station be played 8-5 (8 hours 5 days a week)...this week alone I have heard such classics as Feliz Navidad one too many times but my all time teeth grinders are:

Barbara Striesand Christmas Carols of any kind (can someone explain that to me???)

The Snoopy/Red Baron Song...

The news had come out in the First World War
The bloody Red Baron was flying once more
The Allied command ignored all of its men
And called on Snoopy to do it again.

Twas the night before Christmas, 40 below
When Snoopy went up in search of his foe
He spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought
With ice on his wings Snoopy knew he was caught.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ring out from the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man

The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights
He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight
Why he didn't shoot, well, we'll never know
Or was it the bells from the village below.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man

The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out, "Merry Christmas, my friend"

The Baron then offered a holiday toast
And Snoopy, our hero, saluted his host
And then with a roar they were both on their way
Each knowing they'd meet on some other day.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man

Funny you should bring this up, Scott.  I went shopping last Saturday and came home to the wife listening to our oldies station playing holiday songs.  Now I'm as festive as the next guy, but I wanted to slit my wrists after listening to about ten minutes of that crap.  That Snoopy song was one of them.  It was the first time I heard it and hated it.  Another one was one about a donkey or some ****, I don't know, I was trying to block it out.

I do, however, like Springsteen's version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town

I've always had issues with "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer".

Yeah, I know.

"But it's funny!"

Yeah, funny if you're a dumb-ass with no taste.

A true Yooper/Canuck song if I've ever heard one!!  


Funny this came up, I just picked up Hilary Duff's Christmas cd, not too bad.  The best one (behind Bing of course) is Lorrie Morgan's Christmas.  I feel sorry for anyone pulled up beside my car at a red light when I am joining her in the grand finale  :-*.
I grew up with Bing and Frank so I really like the renditions of Christmas song's from my Mom's era the best.



PS:  Don't forget the classic "Rusty Chevrolet"  ;) :-X
Doesn't really suck, just an odd song.

#44 on Dale's list - Dominic, the Italian Christmas Donkey.  Sucks and blows at the same time.

 :o   :o   :o

We've got Christmas albums up the ying-yang at our place, and have them going nearly all of December to help enjoy the festive Holiday season.   8)

Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis usually have top billing in our house.  Throw in some Bing, Frank, and Harry Connick Jr. and you've got a lot of our playlist.  Lot's of Christmas "Greatest Hits" types of compilations going as well!

My two favorite X-mas diddys are probably Little Drummer Boy and Do You Hear What I Hear.

Songs that suck?  Hmm...  Perhaps Feliz Navidad.

The dogs barking Jingle Bells is annoying.

A couple of my favorites are Crosby and Bowie's Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy duet and the Muppets' 12 Days of Christmas.

That song...  Oh how I hate that song.

If you worked retail ever, you know the song I mean...  It's played constantly, especially in Penneys it seems.

It goes sorta like this:

Happy Holidaaaaaayyysss...
(group) Happy Holidaaaaayyyysss...

Well whoopty doo, and dickery dock
And don't forget
to hang up your sock
cuz just exactly at twelve o'clock

He'll be comin' down the chimney down
(Group) He'll be comin' down the chimney down

It's something like that...  I don't know its name, I don't know who sings it, and I don't ever want to hear it again but I know when I start shopping for the hoidays I'll hear it over and over and over, and I will simply want to vomit after about an hour in the mall.

I actually kinda liked the snoopy song, but only because I liked it as a kid.  

I also like "I am Santa Claus" to the tune of Iron Man.  It always makes me feel festive.

Ooooh...that is Andy Williams.  

See we have another problem at the Office.  We have four Christmas CD's...two of which are Andy Williams (one which "co-stars" the sucky Osmonds)  Those are banned from being played until the week of Christmas...HAPPY HOLIDAYS
