I love Christmas music. I’m not one of those people in November who complains that it’s too early to hear music in the stores or on the radio. I love it. I listen to Christmas songs every now and then throughout the year just because they put me in a good mood. Stuff like Mannheim Steamroller, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, etc., I can’t get enough of.
Still, there are a few songs that I think are absolute garbage. I hate them and I never want to hear them again. Here are a handful that I can’t stand and will change the station on every single time:
Faith Hill – Where Are You Christmas
One of the best-selling holiday digital singles of all time is easily one of the worst. It was originally meant to be a Mariah Carey track before ending up being sung by Faith Hill. Despite having seen the movie, I didn’t remember this song being a part of 2000’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but I’ve always remembered that this song is terrible.
Jose Feliciano – Feliz Navidad
1970’s cheese and kitsch that sounds like it would be right at home in Las Vegas being sung by Wayne Newton.
NewSong – The Christmas Shoes
Was the song written for the awful TV movie or was the awful TV movie based on this song?
“The Christmas Shoes” is one of the worst songs ever, and easily the worst Christmas song ever. I hate this song with every fiber of my being. It’s so sappy and corny. The kicker is the children singing at the end with the intention of adding even more sentimentality to the song. It only makes me hate it more.
The video is hilariously terrible as well: forty-something guy with Hollywood Hogan beard and a wistful look on his face sings while the rest of his band hovers around him solemnly while staring off into the distance or at their feet.
