The Most Over and Under-Rated Christmas SongsDecember 23, 2010 1 Comment
Whether you are a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist or still deciding, the thing that binds us all together at this time of year is a soul-shuddering hatred for certain Christmas carols — specifically the ones on repeat every time we step out of the house.
But believe me, there are awesome Christmas songs out there if you look.
Not only is this song impossible to sing without a full chorus backing you up, the lyrics are ridiculously sycophantic. It is so over the top the sentiment just doesn’t seem sincere.
This gentle, quiet song perfectly sums up Christmas Eve for me, or another beautiful night.
From A Christmas Movie
From the moment the first high-pitched notes hit the speakers, I begin to cringe. It is the carol version of nails on a chalk-board.
This song is funnier and has more kitsch appeal. Although it was designed to cash into the holiday at least it has the Christmas balls to tell you so (I’m looking at you, Alvin).
The lustful Santa Baby is just wrong on so many levels. No one wants to think of jolly St. Nick trimming anyone’s tree, let alone spending the night sliding down her chimney.
Now this is a proper love song. Ok, so it’s not actually about Christmas, but how sexy can you get surrounded by family anyway?
This song proves that it takes more than a talented song-writer to make a good Christmas carol. The song manages to combine the most annoying elements of all the holiday music that plays in malls.
Sure, it’s weird. But it is one of the few seasonal songs that don’t bother me when stuck in my head.
Inexplicable Irish Contributions
One of the most depressing Christmas song ever written. And no, the primarily Muslim countries in Africa probably don’t know it’s Christmas — but if you wanted to help they’d probably appreciate a goat during Ramadan.
Because even when shit happens, it’s still Christmas.
Are there any songs that make you want to shudder or sing along?
