I'll go first.
LEAST favorites: I have two...
_Santa Baby_ by Taylor Swift.... Okay. So Madonna came out with a version of
this song back in the 80's that was pretty bad. Still, she tried to sing like Betty
Boop, and did try to give the song a little bit of the same personality that
Eartha Kitt gave the original song. Well... then Taylor Swift came along and did
a version of the song that made Madonna's version sound AMAZING. I mean...
seriously... you can't sing _Santa Baby_ *straight*. You can't just walk up to
a microphone and sing the words like your singing a jingle for the local
Tractor's Supply, or something. You gotta give that song a LOT of personality.
Taylor Swift gave it, zero. Zero. Now God bless 'er, she was probably only
15 or something when she sang it, so you know, give her a break. I guess.
_Christmas Shoes_ by NewSong. This is the saddest song ever written by
anyone, ever. Ever. Okay, the song _Name_ by another Christian rock band
called Fireflight, comes very close. Anyway, I'm generally driving down the
road while I'm listening to this music on Kiss 96.9, and I really don't need
to be crying my eyes out while I'm trying to drive on solid black ice. Okay????
Now for my FAVORITES. Yay!!
_Last Christmas_ by Wham! Say what you want about this song.. I'm a
total 80's girl and I love it!!! Can't stop bopping along when I hear it! Which...
is also dangerous when you are trying to drive on black ice. Taylor Swift
also did a version of this song... which, compared to _Santa Baby_, was okay.
_Santa Claus Is Comin To Town_ by Bruce Springsteen. I actually saw this
one in a list of worst Christmas songs ever. HOW, can anyone hate this?
You would have to be a Springsteen-hating Conservative to hate this one!
Which actually... I AM conservative and I don't much care for Bruce's
political views. But I gotta forgive him because there's NOTHING,
NOTHING, like hearing him ask Clarence if he's been practicin' real hard,
so Santa will bring him a new Saxophone!!!
