If you listened to The Rant this week, you heard me talk about my five least favorite Christmas songs of all time.
Well, here they are … in no particular order. Let me know if you agree.
5) Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Andy Williams
So why do I hate this one? It’s just very, very annoying to me. From the background “ding dongs” … to Andy’s smarmy delivery, it just crawls under my skin. I also don’t understand the line, “Their will be tales of the glory and scary ghost stories of Christmases long long ago …” … I’ve never associated Christmas with ghost stories.
4) Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
I dislike the song as a whole, and Eartha Kitt’s version is the one you hear most of the time. The video above is Carmen Electra and the Pussycat Dolls performing it … makes me hate it even more.
3) Do they know it’s Christmas? by everybody
Now, typically, I’d love a Boy George calloboration with other 80s artists. Especially with Duran Duran and Sting. About the only good part of this is Bono’s line … and his wonderful, wonderful mullet.
2) Last Christmas by George Michael (Wham!)
Why was this ever popular? And why is George Michael singing to a woman? I need answers.
1) A Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney
We joked on the show that this song was performed on a spaceship in the far-distant future. Even without the bleeps and bloops, this is just a really bad song. But, you know what, many people have made bad Christmas songs. It’s our world’s fault for making this a “classic” simply because a Beatle made it.
Well, I am against it.
