Worst Christmas Songs

Yesterday's post generated lots of good comments, hopefully today's will as well. Here is a list of the five Christmas songs that I think are the worst. This is a list of songs where the artists were being serious so you won't find any songs like "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" on here. Besides "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" wouldn't make this list because it is so bad that it's awesome. After you look it over, be sure and add any songs that I left out, or tell me why you like one of the pathetic songs I included on this list. Here's the list countdown style:

5. Silent Night - The Temptations
One of the great Motown groups sing one of the great carols. That should be a winning combination, right? It's not. This song makes me laugh out loud, and they weren't trying to be funny.

4. Step Into Christmas - Elton John
I can't really put my finger on why this song is so bad. Maybe it's because I expect more out of Elton John. This song sounds like something by ABC or Spandau Ballet, not a legend like Elton John.

3. Winter Wonderland - Eurythmics
The end of this song is so repetitive that you might think your CD is skipping.

2. Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt
Eartha Kitt should just stick to being Cat Woman.

1. Last Christmas - Wham!
Maybe you're not familiar with this song. If you aren't, be thankful. It gets a good bit of airtime on 102.5 and 98.9 every Christmas. If you are a man and you enjoy this song, you need to go to Lowe's and buy some tools, cook outside on the grill, change the oil in your car, shoot and field dress a buck, watch Monday Night Football, and listen to some AC/DC CD's to get your testosterone level back to normal.

Let me know what you think.

two days in a row of me starting you off with two comments but the song is thistlehair the christmas bear

i pray that you have never heard this song... because if you have - it means that you must like it to a degree.

I am amazed that this is all you have to blog about. And that these blogs have got the most response in a while. haha

Santa Baby reminds me of Marilyn Monroe's Happy Birthday Mr. President song. We have to turn the radio everytime it comes on in the car though b/c it confuses the children too much.
