I've always found 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' to be a song which encourages a mentality of entitlement and rudeness. Completely unacceptable to demand free figgy pudding to be brought out here NOW, simply because one offers tidings of good cheer via a carol.

Back in my day, we worked for our pudding, and we said "please" and "thank you" when requesting some, rather than making idle threats of refusal to leave if the homeowner neglected figgy pudding offerings in exchange for our carols.

I blame the downfall of society on this song.

Having worked in radio and retail music (when they actually HAD record stores), I used to be done with Christmas music by the first week of December...that being said, here's my list for the best/worst Christmas songs...

WORST:
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts...) (NK Cole) (HATE IT)
White Christmas (Crosby) (HATE IT)
Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (Elmo & Patsy) (OH, DO I HATE IT)
Wonderful Christmastime (McCartney) (I know he's a Beatle, BUT...)
Blue Christmas (Elvis) (HATE IT)
Merry Christmas Baby (Springsteen) (I KNOW IT'S SACRILEGIOUS TO LIVE IN NJ AND NOT LOVE HIM, BUT...)

Best:
All I Want for Christmas is You (M. Carey) (My wife HATES her, but I love this song)
Christmas Baby (Please Come Home) (D. Love) (You KNOW it's Christmas when she performed this on Letterman)
Linus & Lucy (V. Guaraldi) (Great instrumental Christmas song)
Baby, It's Cold Outside (D. Martin) (I was never politically correct...)
Christmas Shoes (NewSong) (That's the name of the group- I know many don't like it, but I sometimes like to tear up at Christmas)
12 Pains of Christmas (B. Rivers) (One of the BEST Christmas novelty songs)
Mele Kalikimaka (B. Crosby or J. Buffet) (I like Bing's version a little better)
Dominick the Donkey (L. Monte) (No, I'm not Italian, but it's a Jersey/ New York thing)
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas (G. Peevey) (The original is the best, the new Kacey Musgraves version is good, but LeAnn Rimes version SUCKS!!)
O Holy Night (M. Crawford is the best IMHO, but Josh Groban's version is good too...this song HAS to be sung by a male lead...)
Merry Christmas, Darling (Carpenters) (Sorry...Karen is probably one of the BEST female vocalists of the 20th century and VERY underrated)
White Christmas (Drifters) (I LOVE this version from Home Alone...love the movie too!)

I'm sure there's more for both lists...

I might be alone on this but Mariah Carey all I want for Christmas is terrible. And the peanuts theme song isn't a Christmas song so stop playing it.

It's like nails on a chalkboard. Christmas songs shouldn't have screeching in them. I think the Peanuts song ("Linus and Lucy") is from the Christmas Special and that's why it's a Christmas song?

The past two Christmases, I have been hearing two different versions of "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen on Christmas stations and I am not sure why.
