I don't hate it in the same way as ''All I Want For Christmas is You''. I just find the tune of it very depressing, and it brings depressing thoughts to my mind like loneliness, loss, sorrow, tragedy, et cetera. I don't hate the song itself. Also it makes me feel sad because of what happened to Kirsty MacColl.

I have no 'worst' Christmas songs, but two of my faves are "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "Winter Wonderland".

^ OhGodOhGodOhGod - how I hate hearing that damn Slade song blasted out in the supermarket Every. Single. Year. :x

My favourite? Many, and probably anything from King's or Trinity but right now, Harold Darke's arrangement of In The Bleak Midwinter from King's College:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYAv8xvBK74[/youtube]
and The Shepherds' Farewell (Berlioz) from Trinity College:

Christmas In Hollis - Run DMC
I Saw 3 Ships - Nat Cole
Mary did you know? - Unknown
Blue Christmas - originally by Elvis Presley, covered by Porky Pig
My Favorite Things - either the Julie Andrews or Sinatra version FTW
Christmas Time Is Here Again - The Beatles
The Chipmunks Christmas song




Worst:
Last Christmas - for a long time the Wham! version was played sparingly but since "Glee" covered the song it's been run into the ground.
Mistress For Christmas - I love AC-DC as much as anyone, but...sorry
Have Yourself a suicidal, er, Merry Little Christmas - The Carpenters
Band Aid - ONLY because they rebooted, sliced and diced and played to death in every configuration.

I must be very blessed to have never heard the Slade song, do they purposely misspell its song title as well?
