Jezebel actually did this last year, but I've never heard of the winning song. One of my three worst songs is on the above list, so apparently everyone else likes the others that I hate. (What does that say about me? More importantly, what does that say about America? Discuss amongst yourselves.) I'll explain to you why these are my least favorite Christmas songs, but feel free to disagree in the comments. After all, it's Christmas - a classic time to argue with those we love about things of little consequence!
Christmas in Washington back in 2001, where Charlotte Church performed this song - and, in the rehearsal, she totally screwed up the words and then blamed the choirs for throwing her off. Real classy, lady. Thanks for ruining this one for me!
2. Carrie Underwood can do no wrong in my book - unless these rumors that she's been cast as Maria in a remake of The Sound of Music are true, in which case I'm going to need to do some serious soul-searching - but I cannot stand this song. There's good treacle and there's bad treacle and there's a time and a place for each. But Do You Hear What I Hear? makes me nauseated.
1. My very least favorite Christmas song ever in the whole world did make it onto Jezebel's list, though it was knocked out after the second round. I have no rational reason for hating The Little Drummer Boy - I just do. It tells a pretty sweet story, but not even that scene in The West Wing or the Justin Bieber version can make me like it. This is definitely a case of #sorryimnotsorry...
How about you, dear readers? What do you think is the worst Christmas song of all time? And it's okay; you can be honest about my taste in Christmas music. I won't be too offended!
