We all knew Christmas is coming since... uhm, well, the end of September when the shopping centres started advertising lights, Santa hats and plastic coniferous things in all their weird shapes and sizes. I am most certain that you’ve spent most of your free time with your family looking for that infamous holiday spirit, but for those unfortunate enough who were running around in shops looking for (last-minute?) presents, let’s brush up on the most annoying songs that got re-played over and over until they made us sick.

10. Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano

I don’t want to be rude, but... how many times does he repeat that one phrase? A trillion?

9 .Twelve Days Of Christmas

There are some cooler versions of this song, but one gets impatient after the fourth day and by the sixth – my oh my, the song still isn’t finished! Seventh – somebody, please help me! Eighth – who would even remember all these things the girl sent him? And who cares?

8. Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid 1984

I realize that Bob Geldof meant well with this song. I feel like I’m a bad person for not liking this, but... aren’t a lot of people in Africa Muslim? So, why would they celebrate Christmas anyway? And singing about no “snow in Africa this Christmas time” - since we always picture Africa as the best country for skiing? A bit too kitschy for me, nonetheless for a good cause.

7. Jingle Bell Rock by Glee

Some Christmas songs may sound good in their older, classy, Frank Sinatra-like version, but then there’s the endless list of glittery, smoochy covers. Here’s one. And I literally feel like I’m dying when I see the videos where everyone smiles like crazy. No one’s buying that – we all know how stressful Christmas is!!!

6. Little Drummer Boy by Boney M

Did I read the wrong Bible, or is there really no mention of a drummer boy? Fun fact: It’s based on a traditional Czech carol!

5. Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon

Again, I know I am the bad guy here, but this is too hippie and just doesn’t scream “festive” as Christmas songs usually do. As all other songs on the list, overplayed.

4. Santa Baby by Kylie Minogue

I am not the only one to find this song disturbing and creepy. It’s the one you see tipsy office ladies singing on your favourite TV shows when they’re trying to be all sexy and seductive in their Santa outfits because yes, Christmas needs to be sexy.

3. My Only Wish (This Year) by Britney Spears

I thought I knew everything about Britney (a big fan, thousands of years ago). I wouldn’t know she has a Christmas song though, only it followed me in every single shop in Eurovea. I mean, really? I’d rather get coal in my stocking.

2. All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey

Usually, people can’t make up their minds whether they dislike WHAM’s or Mariah’s song more. A tough choice. I’d call it a tie. Just to make this a bit more “bearable” there is a version with Justin Bieber! Yay!

1. Last Christmas by WHAM!

Last Christmas I gave you my heart but the very next day, you said you were gay... Ok, that’s my version of the story. Is this officially the most annoying Christmas song ever or what? How come it only has 48 million views on YouTube? Come on people, click on it!

 

Christmas is all about love, peace, happiness and... who am I kidding, presents. And we would like to enjoy the holidays, we would even enjoy some of these songs, weren’t they on the radio so often it’s criminal. What are your favourite and not-so-favourite Christmas songs? Feel free to give us a tip and Merry Christmas everyone!
