Fav/Least Fav Xmas Songs?


#1

My favorite is Dominick The Donkey (The Italian Christmas Donkey) mostly because my grandfather loved it and it brings back fond memories of him.

If you've never heard it...

My least favorite is Jingle Bells because I had to sing it EVERY FRIGGIN year in grammar school.


#2

I really don't have any particular favorites but there is one that I loathe with a passion and I am sure I will hear it at least 700 times this holiday season. It's by Pual McCartney's other band, Wings. I don't no the title of it exactly but the chorus is "Simply havin a wonderful christmas time!" I'm sure there are others besides me have heard this abortion of a song.


#3

AMEN!!!

Simply a horrid song.

My favorites are older clssics,
"The Christams Song" by Nat King Cole,
"Rudolph" by Gene Autry,
"White Christmas" by Bing Crosby

and the Christmas trilogy of the Trans-Siberian orchestra.


#4

Favorites:

Pogues--Fairytale of New York
Various performers--Santa Baby

Despise and makes me want to dig my ear drums out with spork:

Barbara Streisand's jazzy version of Jingle Bells.

"Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
JJJJJJJingle bells, JJJJJJangle bells"

Aaaaaaaaargh!

i may love the kinks more than any other band.

father christmas

When I was small I believed in santa claus
Though I knew it was my dad
And I would hang up my stocking at christmas
Open my presents and I'd be glad

But the last time I played father christmas
I stood outside a department store
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
And knocked my reindeer to the floor

They said:
Father christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys.
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Don't give my brother a steve austin outfit
Don't give my sister a cuddly toy
We don't want a jigsaw or monopoly money
We only want the real mccoy

Father christmas, give us some money
We'll beat you up if you make us annoyed
Father christmas, give us some money
Don?t mess around with those silly toys

But give my daddy a job 'cause he needs one
He's got lots of mouths to feed
But if you've got one, I'll have a machine gun
So I can scare all the kids down the street

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Have yourself a merry merry christmas
Have yourself a good time
But remember the kids who got nothin'
While you're drinkin' down your wine

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread, so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Not sure about my favorite Christmas song, but my most hated song is Feliz Navidad.

My first year spanish teacher in high school made us sing that song nearly everyday for a month. He was a real sadistic bastard.

After working 4 years retail sales, I will never miss anything having to do with Christmas. I was innundated by the music for an entire month at a time each of the years. Now it is a annoyance. Sorry, Christmas music sucks!

Fav: None

Least fav: All

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and it's my favorite holiday. I just don't get that fake smile, cheery crap that we're supposed to listen to to get into the spirit.


#18

I can't believe I am actually writing this, but.... I really do like Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You".

I might need to hand in my T-Nation membership card now.

Moms cookin chicken and collard greens
