Written By: woops on 11/22/07 at 3:17 pm

I know theres many, but Disney Channel product Ashley Tisdale just ruined "Last Christmas" from Wham! at the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.  8-P


Dogs barking "Jungle Bells"
Madonna's "Santa Baby" (sounded like Betty Boop for some reason)

I agree with every one of those.  I also loathe anything by Mariah Carey (holiday or not) and I cannot stand David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing "Little Drummer Boy".

I get a lot of grief for this but I hate to hear Blue Christmas by Elvis. To me this
is the worst version of this song. Don't get me wrong, I like Elvis, just not this song.
His voice isn't right, he uses, the wrong tempo and it's really annoying when he sings
the part; Blue, Blue, Blue Christmas.

least favourite Christmas song?  I can't say as I really have any, but one I easily get sick of is '2000 Miles' by The Pretenders.  Didn't know that was even a Christmas song did you? lol

I agree that that's not a very good song... :P


Many people would probably disagree with me, but I don't care at all for 'White Christmas' by Bing Crosby...

It probably has to do with the fact that I've rarely been able to experience a 'white' Christmas... :-\\

"Happy Holidays/Holiday Season" by Andy Williams.

This is the Christmas Song that I can't stand. "Most wonderful time of the year" is okay, but "Happy Holidays/Holiday Season" is garbage. If I hear that song, I'll blow-up the radio! >:(
