Bad Christmas Songs

Of course the radio waves have been chock full of Christmas songs over the past few weeks (or possibly even months for some of you unlucky ones). I am amazed at how many songs don't even mention Christmas or the holidays. Many songs simply mention winter or snow, but not the holiday per se. They have simply become the soundtrack of the season. I was a bit shocked when I heard that "Baby, It's Cold Outside" was mentioned as one of the worst songs for the season. Really?!? I kinda like that song. But then I started carefully listening to the lyrics. Holy cow! Was this thing written by Bill Cosby?!? It truly is a borderline date rape song especially when she mentions, "What's in this drink?" My own personal "worst Christmas song" vote goes to Nat King Cole's "The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot." It's the most maudlin, schmaltzy, song I have ever heard. Listen for yourself.

This doesn't include novelty songs which were meant to be bad or shocking. He was being dead serious. It's right up there with Elvis singing "In the Ghetto."
