The countdown begins: horrible Christmas music

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 10:24 am

There are many examples of regrettable Christmas songs – pick pretty much anything created recently by practically any band or singer – but two in particular stick out for me.

Every year I get excited to hear, for the first time that season, my two least favorite Christmas songs: Jose Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad” and Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime.” It’s not really the Christmas season until I hear these two abominations. And no getting off easy – I can’t just download and listen to them. I have to run into them playing somewhere – the mall, the grocery store, a restaurant, etc. My encounters have to be natural. You know, it can’t be some instance where someone can say “Dude, Tom hates this song, play it!” The countdown began yesterday . . . keep checking back for the exciting news updates.



  1. I feel compelled to add “Last Christmas” by George Michael/Wham. Ugh!!

  2. I know the song, and luckily I only know that I know the song, but can’t actually recall it, Stacy. I do know that I dislike it, too, but it’s simply not on the level of these two wretched examples. Once I hear it – and I will, no doubt, because I hear it every year – we can both rest assured that someone else shares our misery.

  3. Pretty much everything on the first “Very Special Christmas” compilation blows chunks, too. And I despise “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.”
