What Christmas (or other holiday) song would you prefer never to hear again, and why? It could be one song in particular, or songs by a certain singer, or a version of a song you usually enjoy that grates on your nerves. We promise not to judge. It’s your chance to vent.
I actually LOVE Christmas music... or at least I did. The thing that killed much of my joy in that department is the 24 hour Christmas Music Station that changes every year but starts playing nothing but Christmas music and commercials - this year before Thanksgiving! I think a week out is plenty long, but before you know it, we'll have the Christmas Music Station year 'round! And you never know which station is going to dump its regular programming for this schlock. You punch the button one day and suddenly THERE IT IS!
Okay... mini-rant over. On to our regularly scheduled programming (I wish...).
My most hated Christmas song ever? It's got to be SANTA BABY by whatever female singer wants to sing it. I think they all have at this point, including Kylie Minogue, Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, and Eartha Kitt. I must say this might be the best rendition of this song I've ever seen/heard, though:
I cannot end this post on that note, however. So I will also share with you my favorite Christmas music. Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas Album is one of the most beautiful ones I've ever heard, but this song takes my breath away every time. Just close your eyes and listen:
Lovely, isn't it?
