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?

Favorite:

None; I'm not into holiday music.


Least Favorite:

The creepy song where the woman is trying to leave, but the man gives strange excuses for why she shouldn't go back home. I heard it playing at the store and my battery died on my phone, so no EBM to mask it (and the voices of idiots yelling).

The "Santa Baby" one. Thinking of someone trying to seduce some creepy old dude with pedophilic tendencies is truly pukeworthy. Sorry, female singer, Santa isn't interested in "stuffing your stocking." :twisted:

"Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Not only does the classic children's song contain numerous threatening statements, it also showcases just how creepy Santa really is, as evidenced by his somnophilia involving children (watching them sleep). Utterly disturbing 8O

I have also started to like Fairy tale of New York a lot recently.

My least favorite is All I Want For Christmas Is You, can't stand that song.

I don't really like Christmas songs all that much, but I'd have to say my least favourite is "Santa Baby". That one's just wrong :x

Christmas is over, but I might as well say it anyway.
I DON'T LIKE CHRISTMAS MUSIC.

I'm not particularly fond of Christmas songs, but I do enjoy them as background music during Christmas time. I can't stand the song entitled Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey by Lou Monte.

this was my christmas day a few years ago. i spent it alone (as i always do), but at least i did something useful and recorded this clip which is not very good but it is better than being sad.
it is a time lapse video of sunset on christmas day in ballina NSW, and i cobbled together a carol (come all ye faithful) on the electric piano to iterate it.
the music sounds happy but i was not very happy because i had no-one to talk to that day.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UcC8SFW4Mk&list=UUpB1H594Ek2H_hWBxJ7ja7g&index=66[/youtube]

the whole song is much longer than the section i used for this clip.
