Hey all, it’s that time of year again. Each December on the blog I’ve taken nominations for the worst Christmas song you think of. It can be old, new, pop, traditional, whatever. It just has to set your teeth on edge.
I say this as someone who loves a lot of Christmas music. I could listen to the melodies for Silent Night and Greensleeves every day for the rest of my life with a big smile on my face.
Once again this year, I’m despairing. The Cat Carol is still the worst Christmas song of all time for me.
The Little Drummer Boy is the most droney and monotonous.
The Christmas Shoes is probably still the sappiest.
I want to scream when the kids start yowling at the end of Happy Xmas (War Is Over).
The opening of Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time, well, we shan’t speak of it.
And that Chipmunks song? Shiver.
But The Cat Carol is still the worst for this librarian.
Vote now! What’s got you up in arms?
