Most annoying Christmas songs

These are the songs that are driving me crazy this holiday season. Especially when I'm doing a merchandising job. I don't know how the people who work with this stuff screaming in their ears all day  long survive the days....weeks....months.

 

The Jackson 5. The particular store that I work in doesn't just play one in their regular (year after year after year) rotation, they have three to four. This is the one that makes me want to bang my head against the wall.



Wow. This Beach Boys song is only a minute and a half long but it's slowly killing me. "he's the man-uh with all-uh the toys-uh." It's like they think they're an old time pentecostal preacher. Over and over for ninety horrid seconds. 

Paul McCartney's Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time has been one that I've despised for years. I can't even stand the music to it. Yuck yuck yuck. 

And the final one that I simply cannot bear to listen to, or even post for you to listen to, is Christmastime is Here. There are so many versions to it, pick one--I'll hate it. It is the most boring and depressing tune. The lyrics are nice, "Christmastime is here, happiness and cheer...." but the melody is not convincing. I want to scream, "Then be happy!!" when it plays. Ugh.

Honorable mention:
 
As soon as this one starts I just say, "No"

What are your least favorite Christmas songs?

  1. Thank you. I've been waiting for someone to ask me. My least favorites are...Santa Baby,
    Where Are You Christmas (I used to like this one, now it just annoys me),
    Christmas Shoes
    My honorable mention would be Happy Xmas the War is Over
    This one kind of shocks me as I love John Lennon's stuff, well, I love his stuff when he was partnered with Paul McCartney ;) but it just annoys me.
