The time has come to say my two cents. Reaction to any Christmas song probably depends on how often we hear it. It’s true, even our favorite holiday music can become a little irritating when it’s overplayed over and over, but for the most part, the classics never go out of style. And for those of us who love these tunes, both the classics and new tunes. Nevertheless, there are certain songs that we just can’t stand—hearing them even once is more than enough. Let’s put these, the most hated Christmas songs of all time, to rest for good. Here are my top 3 most hated Christmas songs. See if you agree or not.
#1 Wham Last Christmas
For those still playing the game, ” Whamageddon,” my apology. Something about this classic just sets me off in a holiday blah. Not one song I would want to be tortured to tell my deepest secrets. Because I would fail in seconds.
#2 Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer- Elmo and Patsy
Grandmother gets soused on eggnog and wanders outside where—well, you know the rest. As a novelty song for adults, it’s a little funny and traumatic on display. Surprised Cancel Culture hasn’t gotten to this song year for abuse of elders.
#3 “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” She & Him
Trying to re-write history here’s a song that didn’t have to change but they did it anyway. I understand the controversy with the original version that we didn’t have a problem with for over 50 years. The Lyrics are jumbled and sound like they tried too hard. If they made it more of a parody maybe it would have worked. Just don’t get this version. Now get off my lawn so it can snow.
