From November to December, sometimes even prior to those months, you begin to hear Christmas songs being played on the radio or over the systems in carols. Nice as some of them might be, there is one - or more - that you don't like hearing. Either it's too sappy, you don't like the melody or you got tired of it, cause it gets played so often.

While I overall can't stand Christmas songs, period, as anyone who has worked retail over Christmas knows how annoyingly frequent those songs become, I think I have to pick Last Christmas. It's such a sappy, whiney song and whaaa, you dumped up around/after Christmas! (Though statistics show that break ups between couples tend to happen more frequently after Christmas) And it's been over a year and now I'm still whining about it, whaaa.

Well, if we ignore the usual suspects/commonly disliked Christmas songs (such as those obnoxcious 12 Days Of Christmas, or Feed The World), and focus more on songs that I hate, personally, although they seem to be popular with everyone I know, I'm gonna have to say Feliz Navidad. It's just horribly, horribly repetitive in my opinion. I mean, there's one version that at least has a few additional lyrics, but the version played everywhere I go is usually the one consisting of two sentences.

And then, there's something that's not a specific song, but a style in which many Christmas (and other) songs seem to be sung these days. I'm speaking of that oh-so-popular "I drank three bottles of Whisky, and now I think I'm the lovechild of Shakira and Whitney Houston" style where they whine and howl out their lyrics as if they're passing a kidney stone while recording it. Why on Earth is that so popular? I don't get it.
Same for the "I know this song has a rhythm and a melody, but I'm going to deliberately miss them as much as possible", where they have once heard someone highlighting the last part of a song by going an octave higher or holding one note a bit longer, and now think that singing out of pace and out of tune are the keys to success. Ugh! Hate it.

Ahem...,you might not want to write off those songs as universally disliked yet.

I love both of them and haven't heard of this potent hatred for them before you mentioned it.

Sika by Juice Leskinen.

It's a Finnish song... About feeding a pig all year and eating it at Christmas. It's really weird and I don't like it. It was composed in the 70's I think...

Personally, I prefer 12 Days Of Christmas when it's parodied. Like with The Simpsons.

I didn't. I said "commonly". Like them as you may, but they are disliked by a lot of people. I know because I've read similar threads to this one in several forums, and there are a few songs (such as the two mentioned) that get mentioned quite a lot.

As for parodies, I do like the 12 Pains Of Christmas. Partly because they change lines up a bit, and partly because it hasn't been played to death for me yet.

I don't like "Sleigh Ride" for some reason. I'm not sure why. I think it was as a result of some kind of traumatic childhood experience.

I'm going with the popular choice of Last Christmas by Wham.

Considering it ain't even an actual Christmas song only makes it worse and I cringe everytime I hear it nowadays...

Mostly because of the terrible cover versions that keep playing on the radio.

Its got jingle bells in it and Christmas in the title.


I do like the nice instrumental version of it with the saxophone though.

Ugh, yeah, I don't like that one either. Can't really pinpoint the one I dislike the most though... So many cheesy ones.

It merely uses the word "Christmas".
You could replace the word "Christmas" with "Halloween" and nothing much would change.

Well it wouldn't change the "christmas" melody of bells being used throughout the song to create the allusion to Christmas via Sleigh Bells.

Plus the whole concept of the song is about 'gift giving', something traditionally done at Christmas.

@Pierre: Present giving *wink, wink*, yet, it doesn't really count as one to me, but heck.

Also, it is funny how I hardly ever heard some of the songs mentioned here.

A couple weeks late, I know, but my least favorite would have to be "Hey, Sanna!" The spelling of "Santa" as "Sanna" is intentional, although I doubt the same is true for their mispronunciation. The other one that really irks me would have to be "Santa Baby."

I dislike the aforementioned "Last Christmas," although only when it's sung by anyone aside from the original artists. It's also very hard for me to like any version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Here Comes Santa Claus," "All I Want for Christmas is You," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," or "Wonderful Christmas Time."

I'd like Feliz Navidad more if it was shorter. Like, maybe if it only repeated itself four times or less.

There are plenty of Christmas Songs I like, but half the time it seems the radio stations only play the ones I dislike.

1. "Baby It's Cold Outside"
2. "All I Want for Christmas is You"
3. "Santa Baby"

Yeah, I like "old-timey" Christmas songs better. You know, the kind that Josh Groban sings or the ones they do during Catholic services. :godot:

Santa Baby, since its most popular recording is of an annoying nasally woman trying to sound flirty.

The one I hate the most is Santa Baby like many others, I hate it because it sounds to sexual for a Christmas song, Christmas is mostly a kids holiday and kids shouldn't be hearing sexual stuff like this.
