Spreading Christmas Cheer For All To Hear

I don't know what is wrong with me, but I find real enjoyment in horrible Christmas songs. You'd think they would drive me crazy and I'd want to stay away but I find myself coming back for more. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. Maybe residency did that to me!

So, I thought I would share my top 5 picks.

1. Worst Christmas Music Video

There is something about the age disparity in this one that just gives me the creeps. The sexy looks and dancing (is it even dancing?) from Mariah and the jaw hanging, gawking looks from Justin make this one creeptastic! I have always liked this song from Mariah, too bad she had to freshen it up in a cougar-pedophile like way.

2. Worst Christmas Cover, Ever. Period.

Lucky JB makes my list twice!

The only kind of person I can see actually liking this train wreck of a carol is a teenage Bielieber. I think it is a particularly irreverent take on what is supposed to be a sweet Christmas hymn. I'm not even talking about the rap melody and the psychedelic drums. Taking a song about baby Jesus and turning it into, "Yeah, I'm bad, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum, Beiber in the house" makes me cringe.

3. Worst Original Christmas Song

Uh, really? I just heard about this one so it made a last minute appearance to the list (beating out Wham's, "Last Christmas." Talk about a song that gets stuck in your head without really saying much of anything). And actually, I don't find a lot of fantastic dis-enjoyment in this one. It's just bad.

4. Most Awkward Christmas Cover.

What were you thinking, Buble?
I think of Michael Buble as a pretty classy guy, but this was a poor song choice for him. Or any man. I just don't see this being a song any guy in his right mind would want to sing. Even changing the words to "buddy" and "pal-ey" just seems a little weird.

5. So-BAD-It's-Good Christmas Song.

Not a lot to say about this one by one of my favorite YouTube artists, Jan Terry. It certainly speaks (or sings!) for itself. And is probably my true favorite of the worst.

Merry Christmas and happy listening.

And don't be surprised to find these stuck in your head for the rest of the season...don't be (too) mad!
