The Worst Christmas song ever

I am listening to the "All Christmas Music All The Time" local radio station.

I just heard one and wondered what it had to do with Christmas. So I had to search the lyrics.

Other than it uses the term "Christmas Eve" it has nothing to do with Christmas. Not one Santa, Reindeer, Jingle Bell, Baby Jesus or anything

And in my opinion a lousy song no matter what season of the year. But the guy just died recently so I'll give him a sympathy pass (just once).

Same Old Lang Syne - Dan Fogelberg

Met my old lover in the grocery store The snow was falling Christmas Eve I stole behind her in the frozen foods And I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first But then her eyes flew open wide She went to hug me and she spilled her purse And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the checkout stand The food was totaled up and bagged We stood there lost in our embarrassment As the conversation dragged

We went to have ourselves a drink or two But couldn't find an open bar We bought a six pack at the liquor store And we drank it in her car

CHORUS: We drank a toast to innocence We drank a toast to now We tried to reach beyond the emptiness But neither one knew how

She said she'd married her an architect Who kept her warm and safe and dry She would've liked to said she loved the man But she didn't like to lie

I said the years had been a friend to her And that her eyes were still as blue But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I Saw doubt or gratitude

She said she saw me in the record store And that I must be doing well I said the audience was heavenly But the traveling was hell

CHORUS

We drank a toast to innocence We drank a toast to time Living in our eloquence Another auld lang syne

The beer was empty and our tongues were tired And running out of things to say She gave a kiss to me as I got out And I watched her drive away

Just for a moment I was back at school And felt that old familiar pain And as I turned to make my way back home The snow turned into rain

I'm lucky that haven't had a chance to hear Dan Forgelberg's song. (RIP)

Many people may disagree, but I really don't like Wham!'s Last Christmas.

RIP The Rev
I do disagree. I enjoy Last Christmas.

And Seeker, I bet you didnt read the condolences thread huh...? :confused:

I personally do not care for anything Mariah Carey has contributed to Christmas music. There are so many good Christmas songs out there, but her's for some reason always get thrown in the mix. And that is just wrong.

I absolutely despise the Fab Macca song called (I think) 'Wonderful Christmas Time'...everything about it makes me want to self harm.

She did? When?

I like that song also. It is what made me learn of the Pogues.

Today Radio 1 announced to edit swear words of Fairy Tale of New York, but in the end they changed their mind.

Kirsty McColl died in Mexico by boating accident about 7 years ago.

MESSAGE RECEIVED LOUD AND CLEAR!!! :eek::mad::(

The Jackson 5’s “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” is pretty annoying. So is that barking dogs “Jingle Bells” song.

Oh and anything by Britney and Jessica… at any time of the year.

There are two absolutely horrible christmas songs, in my opinion. One's about some kid wanting to buy his mom some pair of shoes before she dies, cuz she's gotta look good for Jesus.
THe other one is a maryland song. I've written about it already. its called "Crabs for Christmas".
come to think of it i hate the 'africa doesnt know its christmas' song. they don't f***ing care.

THe gayness of the "Christmas shoes":
The Christmas Shoes


It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line
Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood
Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing 'round like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

His clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Chorus:
Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

He counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me
He said Mama made Christmas good at our house
Though most years she just did without
Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
Mama's gonna look so great

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

Bridge:
I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent that little boy
To remind me just what Christmas is all about

and just a tiny part of the super lameness of "Crabs for Christmas":
"Crabs for Christmas"

'In a department store North of Houston,
Sat a Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.

In a minute he knows, the front door will close,
And this tired old Santa can pack up an leave,

when a big fellow came out of nowhere,
and he sat right down on Santa's knee,

And the .......... As the Big fellow said,
Dear Santa I appreciate you listening to me,

And He Said
Oh, I want Crabs for Christmas
Oh, Only Crabs will do,
Oh, for with Crabs for Christmas
My Christmas wish'll come true.

Santa baby by Kylie:mad: I HATE IT!!! It makes me angry everytime i hear it. I always associate santa with my childhood and that song is just plain wrong and creepy.
Agree with you there :)

Cliff's The Lord's Prayer IS the worst Christmas song ever.
FACT
:)
