First , let me say this I like Christmas music. Some of it is great stuff Nat King Cole’s “Christmas Song” and Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” comes to mind. Another favorite is Trans Siberian Orchestra’s” Carol of the Bells”, whats not to like there, a hard rock beat screaming guitars, I’ll never think of” Carol of the Bells” the same again. But some of it is just awful. Some of my least favorites are “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”, or Band Aid’s ” Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, great cause bad song. My least favorite is Paul McCartney’s( is that how you spell his name) “Wonderful Christmas Time”. Sorry if you like it , I can’t stand it. Just because one of the Beatles made it does not mean it’s a great song. Not only do I not like it but I’ve heard it 3 times already. Once before Thanksgiving, twice yesterday. On the same radio station.
Everybody has a song that is like fingernails on a chalkboard to them. I bet even Jeanie has a few songs she dispises . So what are they? I want to know your lists of awful Christmas songs. It could just be a rendition of a song by a particular artist. Like Bruce Springsteen’s ” Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”( EWWW).
Let me know. Bryan
One more thing. If I add sleigh bells to “Smoke On The Water” does that make it a Christmas song? I think I’ll keep count how many times I hear Paul’s song this year. I’m up to 3.
