15 Christmas Songs We’ve Been Pretending Are Good For Far Too Long

15 Christmas Songs We’ve Been Pretending Are Good For Far Too Long

1.

“Santa Baby” by Michael Bublé


Reprise Records/Austin Allie

“Santa Baby” is a bad song, and nearly everyone who covers it tries to sound all sensual singing about SANTA, but I got to give it to Michael Bublé, his version (“Santa buddy, a 65 Convertible too, steel blue, I’ll wait up for you, dude”) is the absolute WORST.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” by literally anyone


Disney

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” is an awful song with a very creepy guy trying to take advantage of a girl when she just wants to go home.

“Santa Clause Lane” by Hillary Duff


Fox/Buena Vista Records

I hate most modern Christmas music (pretty much anything written in the last 100 years). Give me the “Waltz of the Flowers” from The Nutcracker any day.

“Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber


Island Records/Austin Allie

I want to hear non-autotuned voices, bells, orchestras, etc! We can listen to pop anytime.

“Last Christmas” by the Glee Cast


Fox

I hate Glee covers of Christmas music. I’ve had to listen to Lea Michele sing “Last Christmas” multiple times over an eight-hour shift, and I’ve had enough.

“White Christmas” by any country artist

No, I do not want to hear twangy versions of Christmas songs by Blake Shelton or Taylor Swift.

“Christmas Shoes” by NewSong


CTV/Benson Records

A horrendous song with the moral of the story being that God will straight-up kill a kid’s mom on Christmas in order to teach a grumpy Boomer to lighten up. Every time it’s played, I want to punch something.

“Holly Jolly Christmas” by Michael Bublé


VH1 / NBC

Michael Bublé’s singing gets under my skin. There is no reason to cover Christmas music that has already been covered hundreds of times… and his Christmas special? Keep it.

“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Bing Crosby


NBC/Austin Allie

It’s playing at all of the stores starting in early November. I feel bad for the workers that have only about a CD’s worth of music that’s replayed for the nearly two-month span.

“Fairytale of New York” by the Pogues

I turn the radio off each time it comes on and can’t believe it’s always rated number one in lists of top Christmas songs.
