  1. That’s great that you included “Wonderful Christmastime.” It is easily the worst song the incredibly talented Paul ever wrote. There is not a thing about it that is good. I also agreed with the insipid Grandma song. It was NEVER funny. I also despise Hippo for Xmas (abbr.) and All I want is my two front teeth — although I love Spike Jones, just not that song. I actually am okay with Transsexual Tribesman Orchestra in all of their 80’s hairness gory glory. They’re like the Boston of Christmas music — dated by ok if you’re in the mood. My list would’ve included that Elton John one that sounds equally as dated and awful as Paul’s song — well, almost. And there’s a horrid Wham Bam George Michael maam song lurking on 93.9 out there every 52 minutes that I can live without and usually do… Good job ole pal 🙂

    I can do without The Twelve Minutes of Christmas as well — another good choice

    I didn’t realize Mannheim Steamroller had two N’s — but you would know! They always sound as if there is not an acoustic stringed instrument within 17 miles of any of their material.

    Merry Christmas 364 days early,

  2. Thanks! After posting a link to this on Facebook, someone pointed out that I “forgot” to include the Bing Crosby/David Bowie version of “Little Drummer Boy.” I don’t think I forgot as much as I repressed the memory.
