The Songs That Ruin Christmas: What’s Your LEAST Favorite Christmas Song?
For those of you not quite ready to get into the "holly jolly' spirit, this question is for you: What's your LEAST favorite Christmas Song?
The reason we asked this question has to do with the story of a Cleveland radio station choosing to ban the Christmas classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" because when you check out the lyrics of the song or better yet, WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW and put them under the "modern" microscope, the song does give off a "no means no" vibe.
After watching this video even I'm like "Damn, let her go home and freeze, quit trying so hard." But that has me wondering about what other "Christmas classics" make us think "Okay that was wrong" under our modern landscape. Here are a few examples.
The Jackson 5 "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" has me thinking that it may not have been Santa but Mommy's "side dude" stopping by. Also, knowing what we know about how the Jacksons were raised by their strict father Joe Jackson, I would STRONGLY recommend that Michael DON'T TELL his Dad about what he saw.
Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer is certainly a classic we all like to sing during the holidays but even THAT song is getting a second look this holiday season because of the other reindeer bullying Rudolph and not letting him play in any "reindeer games" because of his nose. Yes, its a reach but nonetheless something to consider.
A more recent holiday classic "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" is clearly not to be taken seriously but when has having the elderly get hit by flying vehicles ever been funny? (Okay, it can be quite funny depending on the situation).
Our staff sent this one to me at the last minute. Its called "The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong and you're looking for a reason to be DEPRESSED this holiday season, this is the song for you. Gonna need a triple shot of Jack Daniel's to be poured into the egg nog after listening to this one.
So if you're feeling "bah-humbugish" this holiday season, let us know what Christmas songs you DON'T like OR what songs ruin Christmas for you in the comments and on our Facebook Page.
