Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Pretty much all non-comedy Christmas music.

Hard choice. It's either Blue Christmas or Santa Baby. Or maybe both.

"I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" - no one REALLY wants a Hippo as a pet right?

There are so many really *bad* Christmas songs (Blue Christmas, Christmas Shoes, etc.), but "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" trumps them all and is the definitive answer. (and yes, I realize how horrific those others I mentioned are) It is almost as if Elmo and Patsy specifically wrote something so awful that no other song would ever have to carry the burden of "worst".

That's the one. Unfortunately, it's my husband's favorite Christmas Song and he gets our daughter to play it over and over on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Pass the Aspirin please.

All of them, but especially "Jingle-Bells Ding-a-Ling," and "Last Christmas (I gave you my heart. The very next day you gave it away ... ad nauseum). Oh, and there's all those old 50's jazz christmas songs. And Tony Bennet songs. And any song with the word "Santa," "Christmas," "Yuletide," or such words in them. And any song performed by someone who's dead, or performed by someone born after 1960. Any song recorded before 2017. And, lest I forget ...

I do wish that there was one and only one station that played only Christmas music. I could tune when ever I wanted and tune to other stations that didn't have Christmas music when I didn't which would be all the time.

Baby it's Cold Outside

I call it the date r*** (forced violent act) song.

I think you know the word I am talking about, but Woot changes it, because it's a family forum.

All that have been mentioned and I'll add the Barking Dogs Jingle Bells. I love dogs but hate that forced labor song... Had never heard "Christmas Shoes" before..... Oh! Mr. Goodbar! Facepalm...

I was going to say Feliz Navidad, because I'm so sick of it. BUT, in reading through the comments, it jogged my memory that I dislike Santa Baby even more!! 😝

'baby its cold outside' no song is more terrible act-y sounding. its the beginnings to a police report, for sure.

My son said the same thing when Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks sang it. I love the James Taylor version, it's flirty and as long as no secret drinks are administered, no evidence of sexual misconduct is suggested. 😉

I don't like Santa Baby and songs like that but I am CRAZY about Christmas songs! I watch all of the specials and sing along! Don't like Christmas songs....Bah-humbug! When I was little I had a pamphlet of religious Christmas songs and would lay down in the little space in my dad's Volkswagen and sing all the way out to my grandmother's to the dismay and screams of my siblings, Daddy, make her hush! He did not make me!

Christmas Shoes. In addition to being a bad Christmas song, it's a fundamentally bad overall song.
