Not long until Christmas now – so before a full on Christmas Play List next week I thought we would delve into the underbelly of the very worst the season has to offer in terms of terrible tunes; this week we look at 5 of the most awful Christmas songs.
When compiling this list, I chose to ignore the chart toppers that may grate a little, like Mistletoe and Wine, or Santa Baby, and instead decided to go for some, thankfully, neglected holiday ‘classics’. I hope this list does not ruin your holiday…
Last Christmas by the Crazy Frog
I listened to this pile of pants long enough to get the link to copy below…and that was enough for me, thank you! Not a fan of the highly overrated ‘Last Christmas’ as it is, but this version is something else…and that something is bad!
21st Century Christmas
Sorry to all of those Christmas purists who view Sir Cliff as untouchable; I will always have a soft spot for him because he was in summer Holiday, one of my favourite musicals ever, but this is a particularly dire addition to his musical cannon.
What are we get gonna get for ‘er indoors
If you can sit through this you are a stronger person than I am. I was blissfully unaware of this monstrosity until I started researching this piece, so I hope you appreciate how much I suffer for my blogging art!
Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
Not sure what is worse – the video or a song that trivialises the apparent death of an old lady at the hands of a hit-and-run Santa. A truly terrible tune
Please Daddy Don’t get Drunk this Christmas
John Denver’s tune about a child witnessing domestic abuse is as far from a festive tune as you can get. There is a reason you have never heard this song – and I hope you never have to hear it again.
I wish I could say that was it…but there are other horrors lurking out there, so beware when you put your Christmas compilation album on; some of these sorry songs may be there, ready to pounce on the unsuspecting listeners.
What is your trigger tune? The one you consider the worst of all the Christmas songs? Let me know in the comments down below.
