Thread: What is your least favorite Christmas song?

  1. #81
    When I was little, some of the first Christmas music I ever heard was on my parents' "Album Five". I liked most everything on it but I was reminded last night when I watched the 50th anniversary Carol Burnett special that I couldn't stand Steve and Eydie's "Sleigh Ride". Now, since they've been on radio stations I've listened to in the past 25 years, I like pretty much everything they've done.

    My least favorite Christmas song?? Sick of hearing "This Christmas" by 90's and 00's singers. Also can do without "All I Want For Christmas" by Mariah Carey. Grossly overplayed and annoying. Once a year for me is good enough for that song. Much prefer the true classics: Percy Faith, Andy Williams, Mathis, Bing, Carpenters, Beach Boys, Jose Feliciano, Frank Sinatra.....Rat Pack type music....etc...etc..etc.. Anything post mid 80's is usually off my playlist, except for a few Connick Jr. and Buble songs, which are surprisingly good.

    I dislike them too, except "We Three Kings" by Steamroller and "Christmas Canon" by TSO, the only two by them I enjoy.

    I don't know - the Gloria Estefan version of This Christmas is excellent IMO. She also does a great slow jazzy version of "The Christmas Song", and obviously 'Christmas Through Your Eyes'.
    I wasn't impressed with Sinatra Jr. and Nancy Sinatra doing '12 Days of Christmas' (Loving Dad). Heard that this morning. I'll stick to my traditional turtle doves, french hens and maids-a-milkin' over a lavender tie and ivory combs.

There's also new product out from Garth and Trisha, Reba McEntire, the Oak Ridge Boys and Loretta Lynn that will certainly find its way under older listeners' trees in the form of compact discs.
    My parents are 85. They appreciate CD's as gifts, and they've received a few made by my wife and girls with their favorite songs. Of course they're not professional, but they did turn out very well.

    This is how I feel. I don't really like "Feliz Navidad" but I tolerate it.

    After the first few notes of "Up on the Housetop" by Kimberley Locke, whoever that is, I turned it off. It's not that it's that bad but it's not my idea of Christmas music.

For Nielsen purposes, that counts as me listening to Christmas music.
    Whatís PPM?

    An electronic device Nielsen the ratings company gives to a select number of people in fifty radio markets that accurately measures what station a person is listening to. Much more accurate that the old diary system.
