OK, that's gotta be the worst Christmas song ever!  :P


I agree. I got a headache just from reading the lyrics. Ouch.

It's worse sung, with the music.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Oh, I forgot one:  Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne." 

A good song to listen to if you want to celebrate the holidays by sticking your head in a gas oven or jumping off a 40-story building; otherwise, stick to something more upbeat.  Like just about any Christmas/holiday/winter song ever written.

This version of Jingle Bells by Barbara Streisand annoys the crap out of me.

It's funny, Marcia, but that's one of my favorite songs.   :)

I think I like to wallow this time of year.

And I don't have any problems with Neil Diamond, either.

We're in agreement about Neil Diamond, so let's go with that.   :)

To an extent I do too, especially this year with both a death and some serious rifts in my birth family. But for that, I prefer "Song For a Winter's Night" (Sarah McLachlin's version).

I will look that one up when I get a chance later today - thank you for the suggestion.  I tend to like her.  I only need to work until noon or so because Monday and Tuesday were so interminable... :) and factoring in my BetterMost time.

New Year's Eve tends to make me want to do that. God, I hate New Year's Eve.  :-\

I usually do something quiet like have a Bogart movie marathon all by myself...NYEve is just an arbitrary construct, best I can tell.  There was that one time in SF, though... ::)

Anyhow - a college friend of mine wrote a pretty darned good article on the subject - I really enjoyed it - shared it on FB - but I'll give you the link here:

I've had some good times on New Year's Eve, but neither that nor New Year's Day have ever been really special for me.  Good thing this year, as I'll be working on both the 31st (overnight!) and the 1st.  Christmas Eve too; but we get Christmas off and quit early, at 6:00 a.m. instead of 7:30.  Bummer, but it doesn't happen most years.

Back OT, one Christmas song that people often dislike but always makes me laugh is "Jingle Bells", by the Singing Dogs.
