Worst Christmas Songs

It's the holiday season. So whoop de doo and dickory dock. Don't forget to hang up your sock. With the Christmas time comes good cheer, irrational stocking stuffers, and an extra five pounds around the buttocks. It also comes with some music that will just about drive you crazy.

The traditional songs are one thing. How many times can we hear "Little Drummer Boy"? What the hell is that song even about. Then there are the campy songs like "You're a bastard, Mr. Grinch" or "Holly Jolly Christmas". These songs were fun the first dozen times they were heard.

The absolute worst songs are those performed by pop stars that have no business singing these type of jingles. The exception to this is Run DMC's Christmas in Hollis. Below are the list of worst holiday songs by popular artists:

5. Santa Baby by Eartha Kit - Annoying, annoying, annoying
4. You Make It Feel Like Christmas by Neil Diamond - What is next Mike Hucabee singing Hava Nagila?
3. Little Saint Nick by The Beach Boys - I actually do like the harmony but the surfer vibe doesn't work with holiday tunes
2. Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon - Hippee fluff on top of Christmas music
1. Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas by Paul McCartney. Both number 1 and number 2 are evidence that the Beatles should have never broken up.

For me, the best songs are the ones that are classy, written by professional song writers, and sung by individuals with a great voice. Give me Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" or Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" any day over "Frosty".
