Yes, Thanksgiving is within spitting distance and Christmas is just around the corner. Some places I've been to are already playing Christmas music, and this year, like pretty much any year, I'm dreading hearing certain songs:
"The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong
Patton Oswalt has a routine about this song which you may want to find and watch as it is funny, although crude. My objection to the song is the melodrama is way overdone, the vocal quality is pretentious (it's what I call conspicuous singing, in that the singer sounds like he's trying to say, "Look at me! I'm SINGING!" by going overboard on the vocals) and the ending is so arrogant on the part of the singer that it sets my teeth on edge. One should feel joyous after a good Christmas song, not mad enough to slap somebody.
"Christmas in the Northwest" by Brenda Kutz White
This one is more cloying than anything else. With lyrics like, "Christmas in the northwest / It's a dream we all can share / Christmas in the northwest / It's a child's answered prayer" it never fails to give one a cavity. Besides, I've heard the prayers of many children in my time and none of them ever looked like Christmas in the northwest. The artist also tries to rhyme "tree" with "green" which is a bit slanted for my tastes.
"Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" by Elmo & Patsy
While many view this particular song as a classic, I do not. I didn't particularly like it when I first heard it back when it was initially released, and I don't like it now. Somehow, having an elderly woman getting killed on the way home in a bizarre sleigh accident, then describing the injuries in graphic detail doesn't quite say happy holidays to me. I know people like it, and I know of at least one caroling group who learned it purely because it gets requested, but I really don't like this song.
"Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney & Wings
This is on a lot of people's bad Christmas song lists for various reasons, but the reason it's on mine is it's repetetiveness and the bridge which has a lot of "Hoo! Hoo! Hooo hooo!" which grates on me.
