It's when that wretched song comes on... "Walking in the Air."
I can't stand it. It gives me Christmas aisle rage.
sad
angry

I feel the same about Fairytale of New York. I hate the fact it is perfectly fine for the lyrics in that song to include those such as "slut" and "faggot" when there is no way other songs would be played with similar lyrics without being censored.

Greengoddess12 Thu 10-Nov-16 19:38:48

Agree op.

No fairytale of New York is a classic and a tribute to the late Kirsty.

hazeyjane Thu 10-Nov-16 19:39:11

But how can you hate a song that has the lyrics.....

*Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty porn star from its sleep•

QueenoftheAndals Thu 10-Nov-16 19:39:38

It's Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime that gives me the rage.

Sparlklesilverglitter Thu 10-Nov-16 19:41:48

Last Christmas gets that reaction from me <<shudders>>

However Fairytale of New York is one of the very best Christmas songs

A Fairytale of New York wants me to ram an advent calendar up the arse of anyone singing it, especially those who think that they are being edgy and cool because it has the word arse in it.

Its a shit song, it was always a shit song and the fact that Kirsty MacColl died does not make it any less of a shit song!

ShatnersBassoon Thu 10-Nov-16 19:43:48

Oh, now, hang on a minute. These are all fine songs.

Jona Lewie's Stop the Cavalry played at Christmas, as it only is, is just horrible.

Bogeyface Thu 10-Nov-16 19:46:50

"....makes me want to ram....." even!

LastGirlOnTheLeft Thu 10-Nov-16 19:48:13

Oh yeah, definitely Stop the Cavalry!!! Hate it!! I really hate that Chrimbo song by that Keith Lemon idiot....the other character he did that was also unfunny and gross. I LOVE Driving Home for Christmas even though Lizzie Cundy at the end of the video sets feminism back twenty years!!! Well, not really but she still looks like a simpering fool!

My husband gets the rage at Chris Rea's Driving Home For Christmas

BeattieBowRisenFromTheDead Thu 10-Nov-16 19:50:58

My most hated one is Chiff Richard:

Christmastime, mistletoe and wine
Children siiiinging Chris-ti-an rhyme

Grrrr!

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Thu 10-Nov-16 19:52:32

They are all WONDERFUL unless they have anything to do with either Cliff 'The Creepy Cockroach' Richard or Mariah 'The Warbling Womble' Carey. But nothing beats Boney M.

Leanback Thu 10-Nov-16 19:52:59

Definitely agree with thegrandhighwitch it'd be a good song but we don't sing songs from the old days with racial slurs in them so it's time we stopped with the openly homophobic and sexist ones too.

BeattieBowRisenFromTheDead Thu 10-Nov-16 19:53:16

Oh yes Driving Home for Christmas is another extremely irritating song.

hollyisalovelyname Thu 10-Nov-16 19:53:58

I love Fairytale of New York and I Believe in Father Christmas ( Emerson Lake and Palmer)
I hate Walking in the Air
and
Last Christmas.

NoSunNoMoon Thu 10-Nov-16 19:56:35

Agree. Mistletoe and whine is the worst by far.

Stopmithering Thu 10-Nov-16 19:56:49

You're all bonkers, I LOVE these Christmas songs (apart from Cliff, him and his arm-swinging schmaltzy mistletoey shitty 'song' deserve nothing more than my contempt, ugh)

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Thu 10-Nov-16 19:57:26

Ooh yes, I forgot to add Chris 'The Banana of Boredom' Rea to the festive blacklist.

Janey50 Thu 10-Nov-16 19:58:27

The Christmas songs that I hate with a vengeance are 'Fairytale of New York' and 'Wonderful Christmas Time' by Paul McCartney. Sorry no disrespect to the late Kirsty McColl but it's Shane McGowan's voice (think that's his name?) that does my ears in.

ShelaghTurner Thu 10-Nov-16 19:58:41

Cliff Richard and his horrid songs can naff off. They ruin Christmas! There's one wierdy song that's always on the Christmas albums and I never know the name. Some hippy shite. And FONY is classic!

ExcuseMyEyebrows Thu 10-Nov-16 19:58:55

But if we didn't have Walking in the Air we wouldn't have this grin

TroysMammy Thu 10-Nov-16 19:58:59

Except Fairytale of New York and All I want for Christmas the rest can sod off. Yes, including you Shakin' Stevens. My biggest hates are Slade and Wizard. I walk out of shops if those 2 are playing.

And whilst I am at it let's round up the drunken twats who think it's funny to slur "smile, it's Christmas" and dump them on an island, far far away. Fuck off.

WickedBadZoot Thu 10-Nov-16 20:00:17

More than 16 replies and nobody has said "ffs OP it's NOVEMBER" - must be nearly Christmas! grin

PNGirl Thu 10-Nov-16 20:00:39

Christmas Wrapping is the best one.

I can't stand "It's Chriiiiitsmaaaaaaaaas!" or Fairytale.
