Jingle jingle

Whenever the kids and I are riding in the car together we listen to Lite FM because they are playing all Christmas music all the time until Christmas. I can't tell you how sick I am of that stupid Paul McCartney "Wonderful Christmas Time" song. It seems it is playing every single time I turn on the car.

I've been really listening to the songs this year and there are so many. There's a Christmas carol for everything. I heard "Santa Baby," a carol for gold diggers; "Baby It's Cold Outside," a carol for date rapists; and "The Christmas Shoes," a carol for con artists teaching their kids to be con artists by telling strangers to buy designer shoes for their mother because she is dying on Christmas Eve and really wants a pair of nice pumps to get her through DEATH.

I think my favorite this year is "Let it Snow" by Harry Connick Jr. because he's dreamy, but I also like the duet between David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing "The Little Drummer Boy" but mostly because the video is so weird. "Jingle Bells" by the Crashtest Dummies is pretty good too. Beth turned me on to that one. Thanks, Beth.

What's your favorite Christmas song?


  1. I think that song creeped Dad out.

  2. That stupid Christmas Shoes song makes me wanna punch someone in the face - guess what, my MIL LOVES that song.

    Madonna singing Santa Baby...really? Awful. AWFUL!!

    Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmas Time...AUGH!! GO AWAY! You SUCK!

    And the John Lennon's War is over...I thought it was depressing enough, but then you get to hear Yoko sing. Change the channel please!

    I love all the classics...Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald.

    Oh, and the Spongebob Squarepants Christmas song. Have you hear that? It's called "Don't be a jerk. It's Christmas!" I sing it all the time...very appropriate.

  3. The only person who could sing Santa Baby was Eartha Kitt. Because it becomes a totally Eartha Kitt thing and not really a Christmas thing at all. As such, unique, weird and interesting.
    Harry Connick Jr. is dreamy.

  4. My fav is Roger Whittaker! Don't you remember the xmas's we played that over and over. I have a new one I like now ........ Josh Grobin's xmas cd. Got it last year.

  5. Oh! But I forgot to add that my favorite is Vince Guaraldi's soundtrack of A Charlie Brown Christmas -- the one I listen to every year without fail.

  6. Posted this on my FB profile a while back:

  7. It didn't even register!! THAT'S the song I HATE too!! The one I was trying to explain to you the other day but you obviously weren't listening to me because if you were, you would have been able to say right away that that was your worst one too. Ugh. I HATE that song and they play it ALLLLLLLLLLL the time. Like once an hour. Ick!! My fave is the John Berry Christmas CD....especially O Holy Night. LOVE IT. OH....and the Jingle Bells one by Crash Test Dummies....but only because it creeps Dad out so much.


I would love your comments.
