Rod Stewart and Dolly Parton singing "Baby It's Cold Out There." The worst version of that song I've ever heard.

I despise each an every version of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".

When it comes to Christmas, I'm very traditional, preferring traditional carols.

Also there are other songs that are associated with Christmas but that aren't really Christmassy when you think about it: "Jingle Bells", "Walkin' In a Winter Wonderland" and even "Frosty the Snowman".

That'd have to be 'Oh I do like to be beside the sea-side'. Dunno, something just makes me not like it.

Bah Humbug indeed. I can stomach xmas tunes by Aaron Neville, Ella
Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and I actually quite like the xmas albums
by Vince Guarraldi and the Crash Test Dummies. (two different artists,
though I think both would be okay with working with each other and I
want to hear that album...)

Hey - I didn't say there was anything wrong with the holiday, just the music typically associated with it. There are certainly some nice choral pieces but you can keep Silver Bells and the like.

Mmm, true. And the fluff-type stuff is all you hear these days.

Sorry for overreacting. :-)

I'd like to respectfully add Alvin, Simon, and Theodore to your list (though it truly must be heard on vinyl).

Jingle Bell Rock blows

All Elvis and Beach Boys Christmas songs are a disaster
