* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Now that USian Turkey Day (and Black Friday) are past, it's probably not too early to post this thread.

It's an old Cauldron tradition (but one that slipped by the wayside - again! - last year) to have a thread for griping about those cheesy, insipid, overplayed Christmas songs that make us want to get a copy on vinyl or CD for the sheer satisfaction of smashing it to bits. This is that thread!
......

What's yours?

 
Any cover of Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart.
Little Drummer Boy
Mariah Carey's cover of "Joy to the World"
I'm glad I'm not the only one who's not fond of Bruce Springsteen's version of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town"
I love a good metallurgical take on the phrase "What the F---?"

Baby It's Cold Outside and Santa Baby. Any version. They're just creepy.

 
Same here. ;)

I'd like to add the English version of Carol of the Bells. The whole melody sounds crass with the English words. When I heard the original Ukrainian version on youtube- I LOVED it because it made more sense- even if I don't understand the words.

A song that was popular in the early 1950s according to Wikipedia -- and should have stayed there.

I used to work retail during the holidays. That particular song would play non-stop.

That's apparently my sister's favorite Christmas song. I usually tune it out.

My top unfavorite: almost any version of "Blue Christmas". The background vocals are just....irritating.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Baby It's Cold Outside. The first one reads as extremely passive-aggressive to me, to the point where I want to punch whatever speaker it's blaring out of, and the second one is the Christmas date-rape song.

 
Ok, I take it back. I will listen to those two on repeat if it means I never have to hear this sin against humanity again.

(The chorus has been stuck in my head for 3 days. Send help.)

Hey, I like that song! At least, I like it a lot better than Santa Baby or Baby It's Cold Outside. I think Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is actually pretty good....

That, assuming I can remember, is my plan for the 'start the ball rolling' song for next year's edition of this thread. It hasn't got stuck in my head so far, thank the Muses, but it's wandered through a few times this year . Sir Paul, sometimes you are a cheesy sap.

My only suggestion for deworming is, perhaps 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fishmen', linked upthread by Mama Fortuna?

Those are a few of my favourite Christmas songs. ^_^ Carol of the Old Ones moreso, as I adore the tune.  

I think I've finally got it mostly gone. It's the sort of earworm where I think it'll be gone, and then it'll come back out of nowhere. Needs so much brain bleach.

I'll start it off (again) with Bruce Springsteen's take on 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'. No, Bruce, just NO.

What's yours?

I've always despised Santa Baby, it's just so so wrong, and if I hear Mary Did You Know one more freaking time, I can't be held responsible for my actions. Could someone please post my bail after I trash the department store?
And, just so I'm not being totally negative, here's a delightfully disfunctional song that I like.;)
