I can't believe no one has mentioned the version of Jingle Bells by barking dogs!

Aubrie, I love Same Old Lang Syne. I saw Dan Fogelberg in concert once and knew the concert *couldn't* be over yet because I knew he hadn't sung *that* yet. It was his encore to a SO.

I am SO particular about Christmas music, I just can't listen to it. It's me - I'm the problem. And I don't care.

I can handle a jazz instrumental or piano version of most songs (BTW - that most emphatically does NOT include Manaheim Steamroller). Most anything with singing gets on my very last nerve very quickly. Not sure what that's all about, but it's really strongly rooted for me.

Yay for the Charlie Brown Christmas CD! And yay for George Winston's "December" album.

I'm going to add.... Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney. It annoys me

Freaking YES. How could I forget this song?

I can only imagine the "get off my lawn(s)!" you scream at Christmas carolers then...

Most of the songs mentioned here I either like or love. I have to echo Jrazz' dislike of the Kelly Clarkson release. She was hosting the Sirius XM Christmas radio station yesterday, and I had to keep turning it off.

Also, I'm not religious at all, so I tend to not favor religion-based holiday music, but I did attend parochial school for five years, so it was rather ingrained in me.


I promise to surround myself with amazing souls and love them fiercely.

Because the only king in the story I remember wasn't real happy about that Baby being born

T/J: So many women complain that men refuse to stop and ask for directions. Well in this story those supposedly wise men DID stop for directions and look what happened!

And that is why men refuse to ask directions anymore. end T/J

And the John Lennon version of Happy Christmas - How can you have a happy Christmas "without any beer!" (Listen to it! I'm serious! )

OMG, abby! I think you may be on to something. When I was growing up, our neighborhood had a huge caroling party every December. Each year at a different neighbor's house. The party itself was such a blast - great food, lots of laughs, the kids always had crafts and games to keep us occupied. It was so much fun running around the basement with all the other kids. Until it was time to go caroling. I hated caroling! It was always cold, we had to sing the same damn songs over and over again, and the kids were forced up front in the pack, so we had to smile and sing or we'd get the dreaded warning hand on the backs of our necks. Neighbor Bob had giant sleigh bells that he would ring NON-STOP! Even during the songs that were serious! And no stopping until every house in the four block neighborhood had been serenaded.

Meanwhile, I was dying to get back to the warm house full of cookies and hot chocolate and build forts with my friends.

Sigh. It explains so much...

We don’t get “Christmas Shoes” playing much where I live, unless I listen to the all-Christmas Buffalo station.

Some that can make me puke are:

1) Some horrible versions of “Baby, it’s Cold Outside”. Usually, I love it and start thinking of hot chocolate and fireplaces whenever I hear it!
2) Any song that screeches or overly stylizes, no matter how good the voice. They ruin the song for me. Sing the damn notes as they were written!
3) The one where Santa visits a US soldier. It could have been done so much better, but maybe US residents think it’s patriotic.
4) “Please, Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas”. I understand the reasoning; HATE the song.


I love the Hippo song, sing along enthusiastically to “Grandma Got Run Over”, and count the beats for “Little Drummer Boy” as I once conducted it in a school choir.

“Please, Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas”.

Really? This is a song? I'm thinking it's a good thing I don't listen to Christmas music.

“Please, Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas”.

Really? This is a song? I'm thinking it's a good thing I don't listen to Christmas music.

I thought about putting this one, but it seems to be meant as a "joke." (effing hilarious, that.) At least it doesn't take itself as seriously as the Christmas Shoes one.

There's another one I heard once a couple of years ago, that was from the point of view of a homeless child, wondering if Santa was going to be able to find him wherever he ended up on Christmas eve.

Oh yeah, THAT's the way to bring on the Christmas spirit. Make everybody want to hang themselves.

Oh come on! When I was in Kindergarten, we did that song in our program. I got to hold a big poster of the three French hens. "Fiiiiiiive golden riiiiiings" was my cue to get ready to hold up my poster. I was so pumped to have three French hens because it meant I got to "do" more in the song than my BFF who was at the end with 11 pipers piping.
