  1. We must be listening to the same station. I have a zillion Christmas CDs, many of them classical, so whenever the station plays a song I forgot (and for good reason) was ever recorded, I just switch over. Surprisingly though, our “fish” station is nearly as bad. Merry Christmas!

  2. Agree with you 100%! Love the songs you like as well, (this year I’ve found some amazing a cappella versions of O Come Emmanuel) but can’t stand that song either, “last Christmas I gave you my heart, the very next day, you gave it away.” What?! How is that Christmas?!?! 😜

  3. I have a mix of Christmas favorites. I have an eclectic three way tie for my favorite. “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” from Band Aid, “Our Love Is Like A Holiday” by Michael Bolton, and a classic by (heartbreaking sad) the now late Greg Lake, ” I Believe In Father Christmas”.

    Among the more traditional, “Oh Come All Yellow Faithful” covered by…… Twisted Sister.

    • “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is one of my favorites to yell at the radio about (figuratively speaking). That lyric: They won’t have snow in Africa this Christmas”… No kidding buddy, look at a map, they’re at the Equator!!! 🙂

      Oh well, it’s Christmas, everyone should enjoy the music they like the best!

  4. I agree with you! I love Christmas music, but not non-stop for a month and a half. Especially when half of them are not great. I love our Christian music station here. They play 1-2 Christmas songs then several non-Christmas songs around the clock. Only about 3 days before till 3 days after Christmas do they play the music non-stop. They have a great balance of music.

    • Exactly Tom, and that’s how all the stations used to be. Honestly, if I didn’t hear those songs so many times in a short period of time, I never would really notice anything other than Christmas music in the background; I’d never notice the ridiculous lyrics some of them have.

  5. I am completely with you on Christmas music! There’s a Mannheim Steamroller channel through Pandora that I’ve been listening to. It’s music along the same styling as well as MS. I think you’d really enjoy it. None of the commercialized trash most artists are required to do whether they want to or not.

  6. I like Christmas music by Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Celine Dion, and guess what? I love that pop song, “All I want for Xmas is youuu.” Lol You should buy some good Xmas DC for your wife. Then you could enjoy the music. Merry Christmas.

  7. I agree. My all time least favourite is jingle bell rock and when it appeared on the song sheet one year at a church I attended I sadly adopted an extremely Un worshipful state. On the contrary, on a different year, different church, different continent, we sang Oh Holy Night – now that’s beautiful!

  8. Haha. I, too, dislike the songs you mentioned. What do they have to do with Christmas anyway?! Nonsense. Any music played ad nauseam is a potential source for listener fatigue. Classical renditions are the best. Merry Christmas to you and yours! 🙂
