Vanity - WORST Christmas Songs Ever
12/21/2010

Posted on 12/21/2010 6:50:05 AM PST by VRWCmember

Yesterday we had a thread about favorite Christmas albums, so today I thought I would post one to ask everybody: What are the WORST Christmas songs ever recorded?

I thought about trying to put together a top ten worst Christmas songs list, but after the top three I started drawing a blank. So feel free to help me out. Here are, what in my opinion simply cannot be argued, the three WORST Christmas songs ever:

This is Christmas, War is Over, by John Lennon
Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time, by Paul McCartney
Last Christmas I Gave You my Heart, by Wham / George Michael

Nothing can top those three for being horrendously awful songs, but please add your entries to our list of dreadful musical celebrations of the season.

Somewhere in my collection I have “jingle bells” done by Klingons. It’s not pretty.

What bugs me is that brassy girl’s voice singing about the hippopotamus she wants for Christmas.

Little Drummer Boy - not any particular version, just the fact that there are so many bad ones that the whole song has been destroyed. I'm usually parum-pum-pum-pummed out by December 1st.

As annoying as that song can be, I have seen and heard it performed where it was cute and adorable.

I agree with everything posted so far, plus anything performed to sound like animated cartoon characters; e.g. Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Mr Roboto by Styx was voted “Worst Over All Christmas Song”.

Those voters are probably the same people who got "Lethal Weapon" and "Die Hard" and "Die Hard 2" into the list of all-time top Christmas movies.

The jingle-bell rock is the worst.

In general, I hate all Christmas songs of that chinsy 70's-ish ilk.

I like all the old tinny sounding ones and most of the hymns.

The worst allegedly legitimate Christmas song I’ve ever heard is on the Time/Life Christmas Collection (I forget who sings it)

“It’s Baby’s First Christmas” sung loosely to the tune of Rock a bye baby.

The most sappy, sickening song I’ve ever heard. And I LOVE Christmas songs of all kinds. I have dozens of discs.

Feliz Navidad is pretty annoying, but I would rather be trapped in an elevator with Julio Iglesias singing Feliz Navidad on a continuous loop (you would never know when the song ended and started over) for hours, than listen to the horrid holiday offerings from McCartney, Lennon, or Wham.

Thank God It’s Not Christmas

What do I hear, what do I hear?
Chit-chat, and clinking glass
Cheap talk, a lady’s laugh
After hour

What do I see, what do I see?
Some sunken hideaway
Where people go to play
After hour

There I’ll spend the night
Meeting fancy thins
At bistros and old haunts
Trying very hard to sin

Then it is day end in a way
The pattern’s much the same
In-spots, a matinee
Every day

Blend with the crowd, blend with the loud
Hypnotic ebb and flow
Until the day goes slowly
Into night
See the same old crowd
At bistros and old haunts
‘Til the lights grow dim,
The not-so-subtle hint to be gone

Chorus:
Thank God it’s not Christmas
When there is only you
And nothing else to do
Thank God it’s not Christmas
Where there’s just you to do
The rest is closed to public view

Caroling kids, caroling kids
A trifle premature, in tones so rich and pure and crystaline
Call for the day, the popular day
It’s fast approaching now
But will the mood allow
One dissent

If this were the Seine
We’d be very suave
But it’s just the rain
Washing down the boulevard

(Chorus)

Popular days, the popular ways
Are for the chosen few
Not meant for me and you
Obviously

Popular nights, poplar rites
Great things to say and do
Aren’t said or done by you
Obviously

If this were Seine
We’d be very suave
But it’s just the rain
Washing down the boulevard

“ANY song on Bob Dylan’s Christmas CD.”

I always figured that at long as Bob Dylan was alive I would never own the title of “The Worse Singer On Earth”.
I would always be “Second Worse Singer On Earth”.

“Santa Baby”

A gold digging slut begging Santa for luxury items just doesn’t seem right for a Christmas song.

Nostalgia Critic does "Star Wars Holiday Special." Beware--it's painful, but it's almost worth it to see the look on Harrison Ford's face that screams "I'd rather be ANYWHERE else, doing ANYTHING else!"

Also, I believe it's Life Day, not Earth Day.

I heard a rendition of “The Christmas Waltz” that sounded like Frank Sinatra that was absolutely awful because of the way he and the chorus that sang with him changed tempos so much that it sounded like it was anything but 3/4 time - maybe 8/7 or 6/11 or something. There was NO WAY anyone could even attempt to follow the beat, let alone waltz to the performance.

I would always be “Second Worse Singer On Earth”.

Never having the pleasure of listening to your voice, I would still say that Neil Young & Bruce Springsteen would fight it out for the number 2 & 3 positions.

I am afraid you'll have to settle for fourth place.

Didn’t Neil Diamond and BarBra both record Christmas albums?

Guess there is more money in Christmas music than Hanukkah music.
