I’m drafting a massive brief today, so you’ll be deprived of my ramblings. But let me briefly share with you the three worst Christmas songs ever written.
On Saturday, I got in the car two times, for two small errands. It was Macy’s car, so I didn’t have any of my radio presets. I figured the easy listening station’s Christmas carols couldn’t be all bad. On BOTH drives, they played these two beauties:
Let me just say that these are not Christmas songs. These are horrible pop songs that weren’t good enough to get radio play, so their writers packed in some Christmas stuff, so that they’d become magical yuletide traditions for the entire nation. That makes these songwriters evil, because you know they did this consciously. People, you can’t take a standard, crappy song about heartbreak, add Christmas, and then say it’s a Christmas song. Horrible, horrible approach.
But then, neither of these two songs even approach the number one most awful Christmas song ever, and the number one clearest indication that people will listen to literally anything (as well as the best evidence of the hardest fall by a former artistic icon ever seen in recorded history):
Anyway, hope everyone is enjoying the season so far.
Don’t want to leave you with that note though, so please enjoy:
