Merry Xmas/War Is Over is a good Christmas song.

And, I think, sums up nicely the contrasting styles of songwriting when compared to McCartney's cornball approach to a Christmas song.

Er... HAPPY/Xmas.

Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt = Win.
Santa Baby - Madonna or anyone else = Fail.

And The Chipmunk Song is awesome.

Every time the subject comes up I'm compelled to mention Lauridsen's setting of O Magnum Mysterium, which is the most beautiful thing I've ever heard.

TSO's Carol of the Bells.  No need for any other Christmas song.
 
2012-12-25 10:33:40 AM
The list fails, not only for lack of Wonderful Christmastime, but also for lack of Baby It's Cold Outside.

Though I heard a cover of Wonderful Christmastime yesterday that was actually almost tolerable. I wish I'd gotten the name of who did it.

White Christmas
Celebrate Me Home
I'll Be Home For Christmas
It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Silver Bells

The on the less secular side of the coin:

Lo, How a Rose 'Ere Blooming
O Holy Night
The First Noel
Silent Night

Henchmen 21 and 24 of "The Venture Brothers" do an amusing cover of it, but it's deliberately bad.

I cant' stand "Christmas Wrapping".  that sax break is just annoying as shiat.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Good Christmas tunes:

Captain Sensible

Pet Shop Boys
 
2012-12-25 11:05:15 AM
I'm glad they had the good sense to not list Christmas Balls, but they neglected to include All I Want For Christmas is You.
 
2012-12-25 11:30:34 AM
My "ugh, why do they keep on playing this" list:

3. Last Christmas
2. Santa Claus is Coming to Town (Jackson 5 version)
1. Santa Claus is Coming to Town (Bruce Springsteen version)

Yoko Ono sings in it.  Your opinion is invalid.

Another vote for Carol of the Bells, like TSO's version a lot but my holiday standard version of it is the one by Celtic Woman

I kinda wish that more artists WOULDN'T cover this song. Yes, we get it, you're anti-war and a musician, but why subject us to your musical interpretation of this classic (and yes, Sarah McLachlan, I'm looking at you)?

Is there more than those two? I'm drawing a blank.

I think those two do pretty much cover it. So, I guess there really isn't a bad Weird Al Christmas song.

As with every other "Worst Christmas Songs EVAR" list that's been linked here, list fails without "I'LL HAVE UH BDEA-BDEA-BDEA-BLUE / BDEA-BDEA-BDEA-CHRISTMAS / BDEA-BDEA-BDEA-WITHOUT YOUUUUU...."

Denny Brownlee deserves to be kicked repeatedly in the nards by the rotting corpses of Elvis and Mel Blanc for allowing this abomination to see the light of day.

Stephen Colbert's "Another Christmas Song" is outstanding, but not sure it counts if it's satire.
 
2012-12-25 01:48:45 PM
Oi to the World/

I actually prefer the No Doubt version, but I had the original version URL at the ready, so meh.

Speaking of saccharine christmas songs, I'll leavethis and this[spotify] here.

Little Drummer boy duet with David Bowie and Bing Crosby?

Speaking as a Jew that is not a fan of most holiday music, I absolutely love Dominick the Donkey.
 
2012-12-25 02:01:24 PM
Not shocked Christmas Shoes is number one, IT WILL ALWAYS BE #1.

Any good Christmas songs?

I know RUN DMC, Queen, Tom Petty and The Killers have good ones.
 
2012-12-25 02:01:35 PM
Taylor Swift's version of Santa baby sounds sexy to me.
 
2012-12-25 02:04:22 PM
Pugwash - Tinsel & Marzipan

It's wonderful

And the Bowie/Crosby duet makes me want to rage.

same here. Almost any Christmas music that is neither traditional nor from the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack are uniformly terrible.

There's this old song with a kid missing his two front teeffh~...
his two front teeffh~...
yeah, his two front teeffh~

What a lazy list. Not even a mention of the more well-known butcherings from the likes of Hasselhoff or NSYNC, let alone any slightly obscure renditions of this or that. Just this morning I listened to a version of "O Holy Night" by Jon Anderson that should never have been made.

It will forever be known to me as "Ding, Fries Are Done".

There are plenty of great non traditional songs. Sufjan Stevens has albums full of them. Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas", Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas means to Me", Mavis Staples "Christmas Vacation." Tons of great R&B songs. Plus lots of newer artists like Rosie Thomas have wonderful holiday songs. Just have to look a little.

I believe that "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" should only be sung by children less than about 10 years of age. And it should NEVER be sung by any adult male, EVER. Not Mellencamp, not Elvis, not any adult male.
