While we in the Southern hemisphere long to experience the pretty winter snow for Christmas, ours is usually a hot affair, sometimes in the 40C range.
Songs about chestnuts roasting, dashing through snow, dreaming of a white christmas etc wear a bit thin after a time.
the song that says
"Oooooooh, merry Christmas, St Nick
(Christmas comes this time each year!)"
and then spirals right into the living hell that is
"Run, run reindeeeeeeeeeeer!!!!
Run, run reindeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer!!!!!!!!"
I hate a few (okay, more than a few) of them:
Caroling- Nat King Cole
Little drummer boy
O come all ye faithful
The twelve days of Christmas
The one about the little boy buying his mama some shoes
another Christmas song i DETEST is "baby it's cold outside." it's appalling and demented. i can't believe they let them play it on the radio. it's a call and response monstrosity glorifying the sick myth of "she says no, but i know she means yes."
for some reason "Holly Jolly Christmas" Burl Ives.
everytime i hear it this season i cringe.
Why? - I have no idea.
there are others, but right now this one ****** me off the most. Actually all of christmas is getting to me this year.
I am pretty sure I have more than one....but to mention a few, I would definitely have to go with Last Christmas by Wham..it's by Wham...enough said... All I Want For Christmas Is You...of course I am not much of a Mariah Carey fan either. I mean... "I don't want a lot for...
I really don't know what it is about it, but I just can't stand that song. The moment she starts singing, I just can't concentrate on anything else. The lyrics bug me, although mayvbe that's just because I'm already bugged at her singing them. I mean, it's tough to say, but maybe...
1. Any version of the little drummer boy(the ru pum pum gets annoying)
2. Santa Baby(how the hell is this festive, shes talking about everything but christmas ugh)
3. Oh christmas tree
4 Jingle Bells(by this one guy who sings it SOO slow it put u to sleep)
5. Grandma got run...
Well I do dislike the endless musical loop of Christmas songs in the grocery stores. However I don't like Santa Claus is coming to town.
The thought of some scary man dressed in a red suit, watching me sleep, well that just freaks me out. lol
my least fave christmas song by far is little drummer boy! that pa ra pa pa pum part gets stuck in my head alllllll day...and when i was little i thought it was rub my bum bum....so ya a little disturbing too.
I like most christmas music. Actually, this time of year, I tune my radio to the station that plays all christmas music all the time (from Thanksgiving until Christmas) Anyways, one song comes on... and it kills me.
"I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus" Although...
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is pretty bad. The whole idea of that song just makes me kind of nauseated. Then again, "Do You Hear What I Hear?" is bad ,too, because the melody gets really annoying after I have to hear it 500 billion times.
ANOTHER "Christmas" song i HATE is "my favourite things".
"why jfol," you might be thinking, "'my favourite things' is that song from the sound of music."
and i would say to you, "exactly!!!!!"
IT IS NOT A CHRISTMAS SONG...
I love Christmas music, and know all of the songs. But I don't necessarily like them all. Here is a list of ones I hate:
ANY version of "The Little Drummer Boy".
The song about the Christmas Shoes, I think it is called, "...
high pitched Christmas love song whatever the heck it's called...I think it's All I want for Christmas is You or something like that....and then there is that retarded Santa Baby song by Madonna.
vomitous non interuptus
Christmas Shoes by Bob Carlisle - it has to be the most depressing song in human history. All it takes is the first few chords and I start tearing up - and people wonder why suicide rates skyrocket around Christmas time!
I hate the following Christmas songs:
Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is You
Slade - Merry Christmas Everyone
Destiny's Child - 8 Day's of Christmas
Boney M - Mary's Little Boy Child
And Many more !!
