Okay, we all know Christmas has a lot of well-loved songs that go with it...but there are some that are just plain annoying and stupid.

So, my question is: What Christmas songs are annoying to you? Be sure and include a reason why the song is annoying.

Some of mine:

The Chipmunks Christmas song (you know, Alvin wants a hula hoop?): Sure. it's cute the first time, but you may not think so after the 1,000,000,000th time
The Looney Tunes version of "Blue Christmas": Porky Pig doing Elvis? I don't think so!
Really sappy versions of carols: There's a fine line between beautiful singing and destroying a carol...and I've heard plenty of bad versions of carols to boot
Really jazzed up versions of carols: On the other side of the coin, there are just some carols that are MEANT to be sung slow...likewise it's okay if "Joy to the World" has a little swing; but don't overdo the jazzing up
Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer: This song is disturbing, plain and simple.

The only holiday-ish songs I like are the sugarplumb fairy things. Ya know, Russian music. Does orchestration count? I just find that music to be very beautiful. And it makes me think of Tetris . But all of those happy happy singing songs are annoying. That two front teeth song grinds on my nerves.

Some very annoying variations of Jingle Bells:

Australiana (even an Aussie patriot gets sick of this kind of Aussie degradation). The kelpie bit is just wrong.

Dashing through the bush,
In a rusty Holden ute,
(insert thing here) in the front,
Esky in the boot!
Kelpie by my side,
Singing Christmas songs,
It's so hot I have to wear
My T-shirt, shorts and thongs,
Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to (I forget)
On an Aussie Christmas Day!
Hey!

Batman (enough said) (two versions):

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Robin laid an egg,
(I forgot)
And shot Santa in the head,
Hey!

^ just wrong.

I forget the other ones.

I actually don't hate Jingle Bells that much. I rather dislike the church-only songs where I can't get the point of it :D

Jingle Bell Rock has to be one of the most annoying songs in the whole of the world, to me.

IHATEITIHATEITIHATEIT!

It's corny, there you have it.

Oh, and all those other spruced up western-ish ones.
Ugh, also the Chipmunks one. Squeakiness is ear-splitting, I tell you.

Ewww, I really don't like the "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus" song. It's really disturbing :confused:

Chipmunks = Cool.

I really really don't like christmas songs; especially the Celebrity remakes. They pee me off SO MUCH. I don't like the whole Christmas getup either, with the green and red colours everywhere...Christmas is so annoying, except for the presents xD

Coco, I second that vote for 'I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus'. Most agreeably. It's just plain creepy. Answer this, anybody:
Why is it even a Christmas song? X.X;

For me any sort of Chipmucks song *remembers how it played on and on in school today XD*, also I have to agree with the Jingle Bells Rock song it gets to me after a while.

Remakes of christmas songs tend to annoy me...

And by remake, I mean things like the "redneck" version of 12 Days of Christmas that I've heard. Ugh. I just don't like things like that. (Though I have heard some that were hilarious. But, for the most part...no.)

I can't think of any regular christmas songs that annoy me, at the moment. O_o I'm sure they exist, I just can't think of them.

I hate:
The Chipmunk song
The Evil 2 Front teeth song

And the remake of Deck the Halls, is just weird:
Deck, the halls with poison ivy
falalalalalalalala
Break, a window
Pop a tire
falalalalalalalala
Set, the Christmas tree on fire
falalalala, lalalala

I agree with you on Alvin and the Chipmunks. *cringe* ><

I hate the Bruce Springsteen version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. It's not signing, it's just yelling with music in the background. You can hear how much pain the screaming is causing him too because at someparts he's singing and then he just stops (Santa Claus is coming t-).
