Sunday Seven – Episode 118

1.02K 7

One of the early Sunday Seven questions asked you to name your seven favorite Christmas songs. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you probably also have a few holiday-themed songs that you wouldn’t mind not hearing each year.

One of mine, and it’s not technically a Christmas song but is always played during the season as though it were, is My Favorite Things. I despise this song because it has one of the most depressing melodies I’ve ever heard. Just my two cents.

  • First to play last week: Carly of “Ellipsis.” Congratulations!

On to this week’s question!

Name seven of your least favorite Christmas (or holiday-themed) songs.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered “first to play,” a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.) You may include this link in the URL space when leaving your comment, or in the comment itself. As long as it’s there in one spot or the other.

My answers:
1. My Favorite Things
2. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
3. Santa Baby
4. Jingle Bell Rock
5. Little Saint Nick
6. Here Comes Santa Claus (the original version, which I’d like much better if it wasn’t sung as “Here comes Santie Claus”)
7. Feliz Navidad (which I’d like better if it had lyrics instead of repeating the same thing over and over)

“The Christmas Shoes” is one of the most horrific things to be foisted on the music consuming public in years. I’m only listing that one, because the local radio station that plays Christmas music 24/7 around here plays that song at least seven times a day, so I’m counting it as seven entries.


Seven least favorite…this is SO easy!

1. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. ’nuff said!
2. The Hippopotamus Song. Ick!
3. The Christmas Shoes. Sorry, but just too much sap for such a happy time of year!
4. Santa Baby. Gross.
5. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. Again, gross. Keep that private!
6. Here Comes Santa Claus. Yes, it’s especially annoying when “Santie” is used.
7. My Grown Up Christmas Wish. Please, face reality!

Thanks – this was fun! Found your blog through another blog!
