THIRTEEN CHRISTMAS SONGS I LOVE TO HATE

1. Away in a Manger--Hands down, the tops on my list. I've disliked it since childhood. This song makes me want to pinch someone every time I hear it.
2. The Christmas Shoes--Smarmy, sappy, whiny... get me a bucket, 'cause I'm gonna throw up.
3. Twelve Days of Christmas--only the ones that get the order wrong (it's twelve drummers, eleven pipers, ten lords, nine ladies!).
4. Christmas in Sarajevo--Depressing as hell.
5. Do They Know It's Christmas?--Do they care it's Christmas?
6. So This Is Christmas--Better titled "FEEL GUILTY FOR WANTING PRESENTS AND BELIEVING IN SANTA CLAUS AND DRINKING EGGNOG AND HAVING FUN FOR ONE DAY."
7. All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth--That whistling! And you know as soon as that kid's teeth grew in the neighborhood bully punched them back out again.
8. Wonderful Christmastime--Just annoying--the beat, the weird synthesized music...ick!
9. This Christmas--I never liked Ally McBeal, and this song just reminds me of all that, over and over. And the FS, which is SO not necessary.
10. Santa Baby--I don't know why I don't like this one. I just don't.
11. Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer--It was funny 20 years ago. But that was 20 YEARS ago.
12. Little Drummer Boy--All that pa-rum-pa-pum-pumming makes me want to pick up a bat and pa-rum-pa-pum-pum Drummer Dude to a pulp.
13. My Favorite Things--This is not a Christmas song! It's from Sound of Music, people! Sound of Freaking Music! It's a thunderstorm song! Why couldn't you just leave it there? Why??
Okay, sharing time! What happy sappy holiday tunes set your teeth on edge?

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" as sung by Amy Grant. I really really like Amy Grant, and I don't mind the song, but put the two together and I am wanting to hurt someone.

"Tender Tennessee Christmas" always makes me cry, even though I haven't been to Tennessee since I was a toddler. That makes me not like the song.

AMEN to #6. I hate that song.

I actually like We Three Kings, but I always hear my brothers' version in my head. "We three Kings of Orient are, tried to smoke a rubber cigar..."

tried to smoke a rubber cigar?? LOL!!!!

One song that makes me cry is that "Nightingale's Song" by Garth Brooks, whom I hate. But I love the song.
