poopyhead: Paul McCartney needs a serious candy cane thrashing for simply having a wonderful Christmas time.


I actually like that song. It's weird that the Fark survey asks for the song you like and others hate, and yet you just mention the song you hate. I don't get it.

Eartha Kitt's sex-kitten delivery is hot AF.

OTOH, Madonna's cutsey-poo Betty Boop rendition makes me want to start stabbing.

Not an answer to the question, but somewhat on topic. My son asked me what my favorite Christmas song was the other day and I told him The Little Drummer Boy. Right now he is playing and trying to sing it but he doesn't know the words other than Pa rum pum pum pum. Pretty darn cute.

I like that McCartney song, too.

Helps that I hear it, maybe, twice each year.  I'm sure if it was on a loop where I worked retail or service it would be right up there on the despise list with 'The Little Drummer Boy'.

"It's the time of the year where we all listen to the same 12 songs for two months" isn't as stupid a tradition as celebratory gunfire, but fark me it's pretty close.

I really like "O Come, All Ye Faithful", but only in the Latin version (Adeste Fideles).

Natum videte, regum angelorum just sounds cool.

I think the crescendo in the chorus can be done much better, because of the plosives and dentals in the Latin, whereas the English chorus is too breathy.

I just enjoy hearing it a few times during the holidays. I think it's quirky, yet melodic. Or something like that.

vudukungfu: the entirety of the nutcracker suite.


CSB - It is our holiday tradition to see the nutcracker every year for the last 20-ish years (believe it or not but Houston has one of the best and most well paid ballet companies in the country).  Every year you have people who don't give two shiats about the ballet and the typically stand out because of their rudeness - talking during the show, wearing a big farking cowboy hat because they were told to "dress up" and so on.

Well, in 2018, "Nutcracker and the Four Realms" came out so that December you saw droves of people, who have never been to *any* live theater/orchestra, dragging belligerent kids and uninterested husbands along.  It was almost chaos.  One woman had to be escorted screaming out of the damn show because she was, initially, acting like it was the kid's matinee at the local AMC and someone told the ushers to get her the fark out.  It was nuts.

Last year we saw it performed by a local/regional company and this year it's not showing (for obvious reasons).  I'm hoping the next time we can see it there are less people present who don't care about it.

I came here to say the same thing. I hate every other version of that song, but Eartha Kitt just makes it work somehow

As an atheist classical music nerd, that's awesome! Some cities' orchestras do a seasonal performance of it. I hope to be able to attend one day.

Christmas carols are overdone pieces of cheap treacle for the most part. That song does remind me that a shining, although very brief, outbreak of sanity is possible.

Not a song, but somewhere around 2006, "It's a Wonderful Life" became a loathesome experience.

Trans Siberian Orchestra causes some divisiveness.  Baby it's Cold Outside is always good for a fight.  Little Drummer Boy, some versions can be comically bad.
