Today is the 5th day before Christmas and because it’s the best of times and the worst of times, 4 days ago I featured nine of my favorite Christmas songs, and today I truly give to you the 5 I have deemed to be the worst.
01 – Christmas Tree – Lady Gaga
Shame on you Lady Gaga, it’s Christmas!!!! All I will say is that after listening to this one I had to wash my ears out with soap. Lady Gaga is implicitly explicit, put the kids to bed folks, this one is X-rated. Could it be that it’s my mind that’s in the gutter?
02 – You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch – Thurl Ravenscroft
I have only three words to best describe this one as a Christmas song, stink, stank stunk.
03 – Dominick the Donkey – Lou Monte
I’m not Italian but I’m willing to bet Italians everywhere are not hee-hawing about Dominick the Italian donkey, and please tell me again why we need THIS poor tired donkey to “climb the hills of IT-A-LEE when a reindeer can soar o’er the trees?
04 – I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas – Gayla Peevey
Unlike Mr. Grinch, this one, needs only one word, NO!! Christmas song writers need to stay away from donkeys, horses and hippos, in fact stay clear of the entire farm because as you will see, not even the magical reindeers have had much luck.
05 – Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer – Elmo & Patsy
Now all I want to know is what possessed this husband-and-wife duo to put grandma, reindeer and run over all in the same sentence in a Christmas song? Time and place folks, and Christmas is neither the time nor place for grandma to be trampled by a reindeer.
So today on the 5th day before Christmas we have counted down 5 of my least favorite Christmas songs. Join me tomorrow as we count down the 4th day until Christmas and remember don’t just count down the days, make the days count…Sincerely Jan
