What Christmas Carol is the bottom of the barrel?

Edgarblythe has his favorite christmas music thread. This, on the other
hand, is a thread for Yuletide songs that really roast your chestnuts.

For me, the all time stinkeroo is "Do you hear what I hear?"

"A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold"
How about bringing him a blanket?

"Said the king to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people everywhere!"
OK, the king at that time was Herod.
And we all know his reaction to the good news.

The choir's warming up, the songbooks are ready for distribution.
What pages shall we rip out?

Hrumm-pummpumm pum... Hrummm-pummpumm pummm

The little drummer boy is one of the most annoying Christmas carols... long & slow. There's one choir version where the basses sing hrmptety pum, hrumptety- pum, hrumpetypumpety pum pum pum... that makes me want to strangle them.

At least, the 12 Days of Christmas, while also annoying is sort of a memory game.

Hey look, there's a newborn baby sleeping.

It's not a Christmas carol, but I hate hate hate the Messiah. O.k., not hate - I just fall asleep when I get tricked into attending live performances. It sounds like they're singing "peas and carrots. peas and carrots" over and over and over and over and over - and they fuss when I bring my knitting Evil or Very Mad

I don't think I'll ever hear Alleluia the same way again.

It's a good song, George - done strictly instrumental.

I detest The Little Drummer Boy. I used to hide in a closet when my parents listened to it.

Not sure if they qualify as carols, but Jingle Bell Rock and Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree are 100% disgusting.

Panzade, you don't like "Christmas Unleashed"?

"Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland" oozes corn syrup and reeks of romantic insincerity.

Bob and Tom's "Underneath the Mistletoe". If you go to BobandTom.com and sign up, you can listen to it. Goes like this (Dean and Jerry):

Let's stand underneath the mistletoe
And you can kiss my ass goodbye

You can kiss my ass goodbye
Baby don't you cry
Let's stand underneath the mistletoe
And you can kiss my ass goodbye
(make it a french kiss sweetie)

Phoenix--

I've always thought of that song in connection with my first mother in law who died at the age of 99. She was such a rip-roaring she-bitch that the devil didn't want her in hell.

Thank you for a happy Christmas moment.

I hate, hate, hate stevie nicks dreadful monotoned version of silent night. It is the most depressing thing I have ever heard. Almost ruined the song for me.

That and the uptight version of Go Tell it on the Mountain the elderly white ladies of St. Patricks Church in my home town regurgitate every year. Ugh, it bears little resemblance to the uptempo spiritual I so badly want to hear each year.
