Yes, it’s the most musical time of the year. Again. Some songs are like special snowflakes this holiday season, and some are like horrible drops of poison in your ear. These are those songs (though feel free to suggest any others):

      I never really listened to the words to Christmas Island–I assumed it was about above-ground nuclear testing.

      You have to listen to the lyrics to “Do They Know It’s Christmas.” Holy shit. “Thank God it’s them instead of you”?! Seriously. Listen.

      How did “Christmas Shoes” by Newsong not make it on this list? Also the date rapey goodness of “Baby, it’s Cold Outside”?

        Ugh, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Right up there with “Tonight’s The Night” as a song that romanticizes date rape…

      “Last Christmas” by Wham! is unforgivably obnoxious.

      I had no idea there was a song about Christmas Island… Not sure if you’ve seen what happened there in the last day or two. Not the nicest place to be really.

      Also, ‘I’m the happiest Christmas Tree’ is my all-time most hately Christmas song. ‘Someone came and they found me And took me home with them…’ ‘Look how pretty they dressed me Oh, lucky, lucky me…’. So so wrong
