    The shorter list is the Christmas songs I like (Little drummer boy, silent night, and a few other classics).  But I'll play along and pick ones that I particularly dislike since Bob Luken took one of my top songs. Here are a few more off the top of my head.

    Santa Baby - sung by anyone
    Feliz Navidad - Jose Feliciano is the only artist I've heard this one sung by
    I saw mommy kissing santa claus - sung by anyone

    Bah!  Humbug!!!

    My Dad hated, still hates? Blue Christmas by Elvis. He especially hated the backup singers ooh-OOH-Ooh-ooh-ooh, (You know that part?). But I kinda' like that one myself. LOL

    Many of the "best" songs have been taken, but every time I hear "Grandma Got Run Run Over by a Reindeer" I get a little twitch in my eye and if it's a silent, snowy night, I can actually hear my brain cells roasting on an open fire.

    Wow! So I am sure I will be one of the very few but I love Christmas music. I have had it on at the shop for a month now. You guys are just a bunch of haters.

    The dogs barking "Jingle Bells", and most / all of those listed above.  

    Also, I have mixed feelings about Little Drummer Boy.  I love the tune, the song, but don't like that it adds a fiction to the story.  Luke never said anything about a little drummer boy.  This, to me, represents mythification of the story. 

    Of course, I made up the word mythification, so I'm no better.

    How about the Maria Carey Christmas stuff. Or the William Shatner Christmas album.

    Hands Down.
    "The Little Drummer Boy"
    Because every twit that brings out a new recording makes sure to turn it into the most woke and sensitive version ever made.

    Try getting locked into a situation where you’re unable to leave and the CD player is locked up, turned on, and is stuck on the track where Johnny Mathis is singing “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire....” over and over for hours on end. It was supposed to be set on ‘shuffle’ but wasn’t. 

    Been there, done that....  😒

    Anybody doing O Holy Night. Never liked that one and over the years I’ve heard way too many “Holiday” singers butcher the vocal. To pull that tune off your vocalist needs some range. Anything less and it sounds like Roseanne singing the National Anthem

    5. Baby It's Cold Outside (though I sometimes waffle between this and Wonderful Christmas Time, WCT usually holds a little charm where BICO is just cringey, in spite of recent discussions that it's "empowering," and I usually enjoy a couple hearings of Sir Paul's garbage).
    4. Blue Christmas
    3. Last Christmas by Wham!
    2. Last Christmas by Taylor Swift (why, just why?  Why? Why cover an awful song and do a WORSE job of it?)
    1. Christmas Shoes  (There can be no debate. Any other choice for #1 is anathema and unacceptable.)

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Martel.....you sir are absolutely correct with your #1.  How it took this long for someone to mention it, I'll never know.

    Oh, and this one keeps playing when you tell Alexa to play Christmas music

    I love TMBG!  This isn't Christmas, though, so Alexa is confused.

    This particular song is from a kids album.  And there are some weird things you kinda have to know from them for this to seem anywhere close to "normal."

    Went to Walmart.
    I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" on the store speakers.
    Wish I knew who the "singer" was.
    If I wasn't already turned off by Christmas music I would be now.
    Absolutely the worst version I have ever heard.
    Ridiculously slowed down, lasted twice as long as it should.
    He was trying to make the listeners cry.
