the problem with christmas music is that once it starts it doesn't stop for like 2 months.

I was going to say because it's bad but this works just as well.

*gives Bob Richards a non-denominational sugar cookie*

Part of my dislike of Christmas songs is obvious (recovering Cathoholic and all), but really it's just more of the fact that there hasn't been a good Christmas song made for decades now...but we get flooded with 5-6 weeks of them over and over and over and over and every year the classics are ruined by the soulless drones that are topping the charts at the given time.

White Christmas by Bing Crosby? Great. What A Wonderful World by Satchmo? Amazing (although it isn't actually a Christmas song...)? Some milquetoast Rudolph cover by whoever those damn kids are listening to these days? Fehhhhhhhhh.

Also Wonderful Christmastime completely undid all the good that Paul McCartney has ever done in my eyes. That song is being played on a constant loop in the 1st ring of hell (and also on a non-stop loop at every Best Buy from here until December 26th).

I worked at JCPenney a few years ago for christmas. We had like 20 Christmas songs on loops for two months straight. I wanted to die. There was one Dreidel song and one Kwanzaa song too. The worst was Last Christmas because we literally had three versions of it on that 20 song playlist.

Jack Rollins -- the guy who wrote Frosty the Snowman -- was my Grandma's cousin which makes him my 3rd cousin I guess. I think that means I have to like that song at least.

I worked at the Best Buy in Village Square for the 2005 Holiday season...it was hell for many reasons, but the biggest reason, by far, was the fact that there was only a single CD playing every day on loop...and every other ****ing damn song on it was 'Wonderful Christmastime'. Everytime someone would start turning the volume up in the car stereo section I swear my right eye would just about pop out of my head.

At least the place I work now mixes in holiday music with the regular rotation of music. It's not completely shoved down our throats...one of the perks of working for a thoroughly Jewish company.

Though I did have to turn the radio off after it played Wonderful Christmastime on Tuesday. That's just never acceptable.

WMP tells me that my Christmas playlist from last year includes 646 tracks.

Haven't really listened to any of them this year yet. I listened to the original Jean Shepherd broadcasts of the Christmas Story tales a bunch last year.

It started playing November 1st...

I can tolerate it like 5 days before Christmas, and the day of. That's about it.

I've barely heard any. It's not that hard to avoid if you really want to (unless you work retail, I suppose). I think some of you are masochists.

I haven't heard much this year. My dislike of it definitely stems from working retail a few years back.

Man you guys are all bringing me down. I love me some Christmas music (although I never had the displeasure of working retail during the Christmas season). I agree it's played for far too long. Certain radio stations play it non stop from Thanksgiving through Christmas. But, as others have mentioned, it's pretty easy to avoid if you don't work in retail.

I love Christmas music, but mostly only the traditional kind such as Nat King Cole, Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, etc.

I echo exactly what Bigs said about the latest boy band, hip hop, whatever artist singing Christmas songs. Drives me insane.

I can't stand "Wonderful Christmastime" either... But the worst of all of them has to be "last Christmas I gave you my heart!!!!" That song makes me want to beat a puppy with a newborn...I don't even know the name of it nor the artist... I think it is Wham who I ****ing hate.

Yesterday I heard that Wham song, sung by some hip hop artist.... It was like my Dante's Inferno...

One song that should annoy me but doesn't is Dominick the Donkey:

I will still listen to it on Christmas. I don't hate the music. I hate that I heard it so much. Luckily we played pretty strange Christmas music. All covers and newer songs by pop artists and stuff. So the classics haven't been tarnished really. I just avoid them until its actually Christmas. I have a bigger problem with Christmas creeping earlier and earlier every year and the music just really accentuates that.

I can agree to that. I'm a classics guy too. Bought a Frank Sinatra Christmas album from Target this year. So much better than radio pop Christmas.
