Hope everyone's having a good day! Mine's going great. I got some chocs, cash, games, now I'm full of turkey. I love Christmas; even the fact that my parents split up on Christmas Day 1999 has never dampened my Christmas spirit.
But if there's one thing I can't stand, it's Christmas pop songs. So I'm curious about one thing, what's the one song you really can't stand?
Number 1 on my hate list is Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everyone'.
A close Number 2 (or 'yule log') is 'Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time'. Sorry Paul.
This last one isn't exactly a 'Christmas Song'. It is a novelty song that became 'Christmas #1', topping the UK pop charts in 1993, beating Take That's 'Babe' (which I hated too, bleh). Presenting; the Mr Blobby Song.
(Mr Blobby came into existence as a mascot for a fake children's TV show, created for saturday night show 'Noel's House Party'. He was used to prank celebrities who were invited to star in a segment for the fake show, but who then had to deal with Blobby's incompetence and unprofessionalism. Later he kinda became a mascot for Noel's House Party itself and would frequently make appearances on it. After the 'success' of the song, merchandise featuring him was released, as well as three Mr Blobby theme parks which all failed spectacularly. The character soon faded into obscurity, and is often nominated for the worst/most annoying TV character ever.)
There are two songs I'm kind of expecting my US watchers to mention, they are 'Christmas Shoes' and 'Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer', songs most people over here have never even heard of, plus an honourable mention for Frosty the Snowman, one people here know but is rarely played. So yeah, do tell, any you really can't stand, I'd like to hear.
