    Worst Christmas song

    On November 1, six SiriusXM channels began playing Christmas music full-time and will continue to do so through.....well, through Christmas Day. Every year, various writers and websites put out a list of the all-time worst Christmas songs. Here are two such lists:

    www.dailydot.com/upstream/worst-christmas-songs/

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/1...n_4416509.html

    What Christmas songs do Sirius Buzz members loathe? What Christmas songs are we really sick of hearing? For me, it's a tie between Feliz Navidad and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. As soon as I hear the opening notes of either song, I change the station.

    This is a poll. Please vote for your favorite -- or unfavorite -- worst Christmas song. Feel free to discuss.

    I get tired of hearing "Feliz Navidad" because it's just the same few words over and over and the music doesn't even sound Christmassy. Another really bad song is "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth."

    I was looking at lists of bad Christmas songs and I found what has to be the all-time worst title. I haven't heard the song -- and I don't want to hear it. It's by the Little Stinkers and it came out in 2007. The title is so disgusting and offensive, I'll have to censor one of the words: I F••••d On Santa's Lap (Now Christmas Is Gonna Stink For Me). Ai-yi-yi!

    Today's Daily News has an article about the five worst Christmas songs of all time, as selected by the editors of Bay Area News Group. Their choices: Dominick The Donkey by Lou Monte, All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth, Bruce Springsteen's "really bad" rendition of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Santa Baby -- "The lyrics celebrate pure greed" -- and John Denver's Please, Daddy, Don't Get Drunk On Christmas.

    This thread has a poll and plenty of room for comments. Where is everyone?

    "Hey, whaddya say there, Ralphie Boy! You're a sweet kid!" Here is one of the strangest Christmas songs I've ever heard: Santa & The Doodle-Li-Boop by The Honeymooners co-star Art Carney. It reached #24 on the pop chart in 1954.

    I heard another Christmas song which is really stupid. I don't know who sings it but it's somebody trying to sound like Porky Pig singing "Blue Christmas." I'm sure it's offensive to people who have stuttering problems.

    I was listening to that channel tonight and heard a Garth Brooks song called "Ugly Christmas Sweater." It was about meeting a beautiful girl in an ugly sweater at an office party. It is a very strange song.

    Here is a Christmas song that doesn't sound the least bit Christmassy. In 2009, Craig Morgan had a #4 country hit with Bonfire and he also recorded a Christmas version of the song. The Country Christmas channel just played it. Listen at your own risk.

    Channel 4, Holiday Traditions, just played Tommy Dorsey's 1935 recording of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (Victor 25145) featuring vocalists Cliff Weston and Edyth Wright. Weston spent only a few months with Dorsey's band. He was the vocalist on the 1936 number-one hit Alone, a song from the Marx Brothers' movie A Night At The Opera. Wright sang on 27 of Dorsey's chart hits, 1935-39. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, however, failed to chart. Here 'tis:

    In 2011, Phil Vassar recorded his first Christmas album in a single day. The album, Noel, included Merry Christmas Darling, which the Country Christmas channel just played.

    Richard Carpenter had attended Cal State Long Beach and sung in the choir led by Frank Pooler, head of the choral department. In 1969, Richard's sister Karen took music lessons from Pooler. In 1970, Richard composed the music for a song Pooler had written. It was Merry Christmas Darling and it became a number-one Christmas hit for the Carpenters in 1970. Billboard did not include Christmas songs on the Hot 100 in 1970. If they had included such songs, Merry Christmas Darling would definitely had topped the chart. Here is Vassar's version:
