12 Christmas Songs That Make Us Want to Scream

These 12 Christmas songs don’t do the holiday season justice. Some are just terrible from a musical standpoint with their repetition, whereas others have inappropriate lyrics and themes.

Christmas Shoes

NewSong wrote this sad song about a boy who wanted to gift his dying mother a pair of new shoes for Christmas. However, some listeners feel it is too depressing, considering Christmas is bright and merry. 

“It’s not a song; it’s just emotional blackmail,” says a listener.   

The Twelve Days of Christmas

This Christmas carol is on the list because of its long repetitions. One poster says, “People who ask carolers to sing this should be publicly shamed.” Another says, “You have to be either 8 years old or drunk to enjoy the song. It’s primarily a drinking song.” 

Santa Baby

Some listeners aren’t pleased with Michael Buble’s song Santa Baby. Even if it is just a cover, many people find it odd that he refers to Santa as a dude, buddy, pally, poppy, and baby.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Jimmy Boyd released this song in July 1952, and it topped the Billboard charts in December. It tells of a boy who catches his mother kissing Santa Claus and thinks she’s cheating, only to learn that it’s his dad in the costume. Unfortunately, some people find the Christmas song creepy. 

Hallelujah

Many listeners love this song, but not when it’s played for Christmas because it doesn’t say anything about Jesus. However, a few explain that it was unintentionally associated with Christmas because Lenard Cohen died in November, so radio stations happened to replay this song around this time. 

All I Want for Christmas Is You

Undeniably, Mariah Carey does this song justice with her vocals. However, some people aren’t happy listening to this song several times a day for a month or two. A user says, “It is acceptable once on Christmas morning. That’s the limit.”

The Chipmunks’ high-pitched voices in this song also make it terrible for some listeners. 

Last Christmas

While this song title has “Christmas” on it, many consider it irrelevant to the holiday. It’s about a guy who gets his heart broken and nothing close to the birth of Jesus.

“It has a catchy tune, but it is about a whiny person who got dumped, complained a lot, and then revenge-dated some poor other person to get back at the person who dumped them. I’d rather listen to dogs barking jingle bells,” explains a poster. 

Wonderful Christmastime

“Paul McCartney has done a lot of good things in this life, but Wonderful Christmastime sounds like a non-funny, anti-parody of Barnes and Barnes’s Fish Heads,” writes a listener.

The endless repetition of “pa rum pum pum pum” is why many people can’t stand this Christmas song. “I find it lame and boring,” says a listener.

Do You See What I See?

Another annoying Christmas song is “Do You See What I See,” with some listeners saying it doesn’t get better even when other artists perform their rendition. 

Happy Holiday

Last is “Happy Holiday,” a song by Andy Williams that feels like a forced rhyming exercise to many.
