Well, since I started the "Favorite Christmas song" thread... You least favorite??

knitepoetknitepoet Senior MemberPosts: 22,202 Senior Member
My absolute least favorite "common" Christmas song is José Feliciano's Feliz Navidad As someone said in my "favorites" thread (Bullsi1911 I believe), "That song makes me want to punch TWO elves"

Yesterday, while driving down to check on granddaughter and babysit the boys, I heard one that would give it a run for its money if it was played on more stations.
Allow me to introduce you to "Domonick The Italian Christmas Donkey" :vomit:

    "Mary Did You Know" by most anyone other than Mark Lowry and the Gaither Vocal Band.
    Overkill is underrated.

    "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Blue Christmas" make me want to scream....

    Pretty sure I made my disdain for "The Little Drummer Boy" and "JIngle Bell Rock" made clear on the other thread, so I'll make sure to post them here as well.

    Dominick the Donkey is not a Christmas Song. I refuse to believe that

    I like Domonick, too. The morning show on a local radio station has been playing it this time of year for a lot time. Cracks me up.....

    Grandma got run over, top of the chart,
    Nonstop 24/7 Christmas music too.
    Any rock & roll style Christmas music.

    Same here. I can't think of a single Christmas song I enjoy hearing.

    Edit: I now have "Jingle Bell Rock" stuck in my head. Damn.

    "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas" has got to be my least favorite with "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" a close second.

    Pretty much anything that's not a traditional Christmas song, done in the traditional way, some country versions are ok.

    Pretty much. December 26 is one of my favorite days of the year - it's a far away as you can possibly get from the onset of the next Christmas sheep stampede.

    Edit to add: Deck the Halls, Away in a Manger, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas are especially grating - -or possibly that's due to getting this year's first exposure. You can get annual shots to prevent the flu - why not one for Christmas music?

    I truly hope that was both the first, and the last time I ever hear Dominic the Donkey. I'd rather have 3 teeth pulled, than to go through that again...

    Santa Baby! If I could just get through one season without hearing that obscene piece of garbage. Blue Christmas and Lennon's "And so this is Christmas" wouldn't be far behind.

    I forgot about "Santa Baby!". There was a reason for that...

    The December Belly Dance showcase that I always attend - either to perform or just to watch - always has at least one kitschy dance performance to this song. Sometimes its even cute, but usually is pretty bad...

    I just heard Elvis Presley's Blue Christmas this afternoon for the first time this year. I'd forgotten what a true cheese-grater to the central nervous system that one is!

    Dick Mango is the worst skit on the Bob & Tom show, but since Tom does them and he's the producer they play them all......the.....freakin....time!

    I love the great baroque and classical religious carols, performed with a full orchestra and chorus, and I like the humorous irreverent songs like Sarah Palin shooting reindeer, Grandma getting run over and Walking around in women's underwear, but I positively hate all the secular Christmas songs like White Christmas, Jingle Bells, and so on. They're so sickly sweet I get cavities just listening to them.
