Your Most Hated Christmas Song, 2020 Edition
« on: December 02, 2020, 01:58:31 am »
It's time for that old Cauldron tradition of having 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!

I had groceries and other necessities to buy today, and was sure that in the process I'd be sufficiently irked by something that it'd give me a starter for this thread - but no one was playing Christmas music, as far as I could tell. Another weird COVID shortage?

So once again I'll cite LyricFox's pet hate, which was a significant factor in these threads becoming a tradition on TC: Little Drummer Boy, as done by absolutely anyone.

What's yours?

It's not as overplayed as many ( though one year I seemed to switch on the radio every time it came on ) but may all time worst christmas song has to be - Blue Christmas

I might have said this in previous years, but Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ regularly makes ‘worst Christmas songs’ list and I agree. I’ve recently seen people praising his sense of irony and savvy, but this edgy opinion will not win me over. It came on the radio on 1st December and I had an extreme reaction. NO.

+1 absolutely horrid song. Horrible synths, horrible choir, horrible everything. When someone has to defend a song by saying, "Oh but he's being ironic", that's pretty weak stuff. Also unbearable are "the Christmas Shoes" and Gloria Estefan's "Christmas Through Your Eyes". I also strongly dislike classics being mangled by histrionic divas like Christina Aguilera or autotuned hacks like Michael Buble (I call him "auto-croon").

Am I the only one who grew up thinking he sang about Zippy having a wonderful Christmas time?
I swear I expected the music video to feature a character from Rainbow

No such luck here :(

At the moment, what irks me is not so much a specific song as the insipid muzak covers that I hear being played. Can we have some real choirs and pipe organs please? (Despite not being Christian, I much prefer carols to poop holiday music.)

That song has some really awesome verses,
but it's marred by
That rumpumpum shit.
Rumpumpum shit.
Rumpumpum shit.




I regret nothing.
Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Okay. Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets.

Last Christmas

This is the one which immediately pops into my mind, though I'd struggle to put my finger on precisely why.

ROFLMAOPMP&STC (or I would be scaring the cat if I had a cat)!!!

If that wasn't intentional (which I'm guessing it wasn't, since you aren't MadZ), it's a very seredipitous typo.

That's not my issue with it, but I'll have to mull it over a bit longer to try and articulate my particular problem/s with the song.

It's a whiney Nice Guy guilt trip, for one thing. "Sk8r boi" handled the same scenario much better.
