The god awful chipmunk song from
the 50's. It's like fingernails on a
blackboard, I never liked it. I
refuse to listen to it, I won't
even post the link.

one thing I am grateful for is online shopping, instead of going into the stores to be tortured by this music

I can be OK with Christmas music starting about now, but the worst ones, never

Like Bob I refuse to even name some not on your list, just naming them can start horrible earworms

I never heard of “Daddy, please don't get drunk this Christmas”. Maybe radio program managers don’t like it?

I before E except after C, and words sounding like neighbor and weigh.

All the old songs with lyrics no one even understands now?

As I'm an atheist and was raised Jewish, I don't pay much attention to the Christian version of Saturnalia :)

But that's what made the Chipmunks famous. I heard it was a big hit when it came out but this is the one of the few times I can say something was before my time.

Agree with a couple of your choices.

My "other" is "All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth". Painful at the best of times, it came out right when my front teeth did. The incessant teasing of that coincidence just multiplied my embarrassment. Still can't hear it without cringing.

Gotta agree with EB about the Chipmunks Christmas song. It was a "funny once" novelty that became an agonizing bore with repetition.
