The 10 Worst (But Still Popular) Christmas Songs

They’re awful. They’re popular. They’re back.

Behold my list of the worst Christmas music we’re all forced to endure every December. But what makes my list of worst Christmas songs unique?

The songs on my list are one’s you know. Songs you grew up listening to and can’t avoid hearing between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

Most of the worst Christmas song lists you find on the Internet include songs you will never hear in the mall — songs so incredibly obscure you’ve likely never even heard them before. Songs like the Cheeky Girls’ Have a Cheeky Christmas, John Denver’s Please Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas, and Tiny Tim’s Santa Clause Got The AIDS This Year.

Besides excluding these (and other) outlandish songs, my list also doesn’t contain wanna-be Christmas songs like Wham’s Last Christmas that’s more about a broken relationship than Christmas, or the song Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses that’s about a year-long inability to coordinate a date until the two run into each other at a grocery store buying cranberries. Seriously.

Instead, I’ve chosen to stick to the worst of popular Christmas songs— the one’s that are played on the radio (over and over and over) every year at this time.

And my list is no joke. So bad are these songs, Paul McCartney’s universally hated Wonderful Christmastime didn’t even make the cut. That’s right. There’s at least ten songs worse than Wonderful Christmastime. (By the way, as bad as that song is, you have to admit, once you hear it you can’t get that tune out of your head.)

So, without further ado, here is my personal list of the 10 Worst (But Still Popular) Christmas Songs.

The 20 best country songs about fathers.

imageThere are few musical genres that contain so many songs on fatherhood like country music. It’s from this genre that I’ve compiled my Top 20 Countdown of songs about dads.

Even if you’re not a fan of country music, if you’re a fan of dads, you’ll find many treasures below.

Some of these songs are old, some are new; some are about happy times, some are about regrettable times; some are about adoption, some are about loss, some are upbeat and will put a smile on your face, some will tear your heart out and leave you reaching for a tissue.

Happy Father’s Day to all those dads who got it right, and even those who didn’t.
