I am with you on everything except your 6th choice. Kids choirs are really irritating (unless it's my own kid!). The Bare Naked Ladies might be my favorite. I'll switch off any of the novelty songs. Or overly earnest pop stars (sorry George Michael and "Last Christmas"!). Around here, most of the radio stations go to All Christmas songs from Thanksgiving until Dec 26th. (And one switches over Nov 1st)! It's a nightmare. I wind up driving without music or the one Christian station - where, even if it's mostly Christmas music, it tends to be traditional songs in unoffensive styles. I'm turning into a grumpy old woman!
OOOOOH I forgot about that stupid Last Christmas song, definitely on the hate list - yikes!
I loath The Christmas Shoes! That is the song that will make me change the station!My favorite Christmas song to hear on the radio is Snoopy's Christmas by the Royal Guardsmen. In elementary school music class we sang it frequently and so there are happy childhood memories attached.
See, Mary Did You Know, while not liturgically correct at least doesn't make my ears bleed. John Lennon and Yoko whispering to each other... Makes me so angry because I hate that song so much. Christmas 2020 will go down in history as the year I avoided hearing it even once. Alas, I heard just the whispering this year prior to changing the station quick!
Mary did you know by Kenny Rogers and Wynonna is one of my favorites. I get annoyed by Santa Baby and Do they know its Christmas, I turn them off right away.
I think Little Drummer Boy is pretty dumb but if I have to hear it, it's gotta be the Joan Jett version. I love Angels We Have Heard...but Pentatonix anything is nope. I love classic Silent Night and I'm with you on Josh Groban.
This is so funny. I am not that particular about Christmas music but when my kids were really young we heard "I wanna a Hippopotamus for Christmas" and it was so cute and funny that I burned it to a CD - well, technically Coach's coworker did because I didn't know how to (see, I told you - a long time ago). It always makes me smile. It sounds retro.
