Remember last year? “Well, hell”, you might be saying, “we can’t even remember much of this year.” In that case I’d say you need to get out more. What does this have to with this post, nothing really.
Last year I wrote up a post called: Three of the Stupidest Christmas Songs, Ever. So, this year I am changing things up and giving you 3 Annoying Christmas Pop Songs. Yep,I’m diverse that way.
First on my list is “Santa Baby” sung by Eritha Kitt . I cannot tell you how much I hate this song! Well, of course I can, that is the point of the post after all. You don’t have to be so literally, geesh!
The annoying sex kitten voice is enough to drive anyone, okay women, up the wall. The greed and avarice of the whole song is enough to make Black Friday shoppers look like Mother Teresa . I will admit, under duress ,that Kitt did have nice legs, if you are into that kind of thing, and if you are a man, which Santa is, that might entice him enough to give the lady what she wants. But, the song still stinks!
Second annoying song on my list is” Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” sung by Brenda Lee. This song was put on every collection of “Christmas Classics” ever produced.
Why would you rock around a Christmas tree, has anyone ever thought to ask that question, huh? Why would rocking around that tree, necessarily make it a jolly holiday? Obviously, the writers of this song have never been around relatives that have sipped a little too much eggnog. You do not want that bunch of drunken idiots rocking around your tree. Unless that is your method for taking the tree down for the year. If it is, than besides having some weird traditions, you must spend a fortune on replacement lights and ornaments.
The third pick is “Last Christmas” by Wham. If it is Wham it is gotta be bad.
The whole song has a whinny feel to it. And I am not even sure it really qualifies as a Christmas song, just a song with the word Christmas thrown in there. I mean, where is the reference to Santa, or elves, or wise-men seeking a sign or a holly jolly Christmas or snow or reindeer or sleigh rides or anything at all Christmasey? To this song I say, “Bah, Humbug!” What in the hell does that mean? How in the Dickens would I know?
Any Christmas songs on your hit list?
