Top 5 Worst X-mas music!

It is the Bah Humbuggy time of year that I have endure the barrage of unwanted X-Mas music. Here are my all time bottom five.

5. Grandma got ran over by a reindeer. It was cute the first year. Give it up already!

4. All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. At least there isn't 2,000 variations or I would just Puke!

3. I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause. Hey, wasn't that the neighbor dude?

2. Must be Santa. "Who wears a long cap on his head?" "Santa Wears a long cap on his head." "Whose song makes me gag tell I am almost dead?" "This song makes me gag tell I am almost dead."

1. Santa Baby. Sung by Eartha Kitt. Nuff said.

I did a search and discovered someone beat me to this subject. Five Worst Christmas Songs.
Some other notables, I am getting Nuttin for X-mas and Feliz Navidad. They nearly made my bottom. Oh, and most any songs done during school X-Mas programs.

Hey, "Santa Baby" is great. Maybe Robin can sing it to you some time.

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree,

For me.

been an awful good girl,

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,

Light blue.

I'll wait up for you dear,

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed,

Think of all the fellas that I

haven't kissed,

Next year I could be just as good,

If you'll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,

And really that's not a lot,

Been an angel all year,

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there's one thing I really do need,

The deed
To a platinum mine,

Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,

And checks.

Sign your 'X' on the line,

Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,

With some decorations bought at Tiffany's,

I really do believe in you,

Let's see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,

A ring.

I don't mean on the phone,

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,

Hurry down the chimney tonight,

Hurry, tonight.

Must agree with the above. Santa Baby doesn't belong on this list.

How could anyone endeavor to create a "worst of' list for a genre which has inspired such a long list of abominations?

Who could have time to listen to them all and decide whether the breathy, cloying R&B version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is more nauseating than the low-brow, good-clean-fun of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, which, by the way, was not fucking "cute the first year."

He-e-e-ey, Richard, "Santa Baby" sung by Eartha Kitt is one of my all time favorites! In fact, I still have my Granny Carol's old 45record! As I recall (the record is packed away or I would look) the reverse side is a song about "Gay Pari(s). However, I am NOT a fan of Madonna's version.

Also, Spike Jone's version of "All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" is the best version of that song and brings back many happy childhood memories.

I confess I was 7:14 and 7:17 last night but was too lazy to sign in to blogger. Carol has been singing "Santa Baby" for years, and she sings it better than Eartha Kitt!

I saw Chucky French kissing Santa Claus while Walking round in womens underwear.

I am shocked, shocked by your inclusion of Santa Baby and ESPECIALLY that you don't appreciate E Kitt who was quite a radical in her time AND a great singer. Was't she the one who refused to sing at the Nixon White House.? Totaly agree with Carol on this one. Maybe I'll mosey o down to the Works later and see if he has it in stock. Now that the dang song is running through my head nonstop....

I will confess that Robin has never sung Santa Baby for me. She agreed with my list. My apologies to Eartha Kitt.

Fred said...

No apologies necessary, Rich. Most, if not all, Christmas songs suck, imo. More on that tomorrow on my blog.

Carol said...

Here is a link to Eartha Kitt's Biography. She will be 81 in January.

What's up with the 5-4-3-4-5 numbering system?

It should be noted that the perp of the "Grandma" song redeemed himself last year by coming out with a truly funny song about how Santa has moved to Nigeria and all I have to do is mail him this $5000 and he's going to send me $1M. (He calls himself "Dr Elmo" ; he's a vet).

Carson Park Ranger said...

I'm glad to see that he's ever-so-slightly more witty than he was back in his halcyon "Grandma" days.

Holly Jolly Christmas annoys me.

M-mas songs are OK, as long as I don't have to hear them in November.

Carson Park Ranger said...

You're lucky if you're not exposed to cheerful, Xmas crap in October.

Shane said...

If anybody wants some Christmas music that is actually good, I recommend the Squirrel Nut Zippers Christmas album. Not the same old annoying junk.
