Some people absolutely love the holiday season. Others dread this time of year. Some folks love Christmas music. Others find it annoying. Different strokes for different folks, right? However, I think many of us can agree there are some annoying holiday hits we can only stand hearing one time each year. And maybe, not even that much.
People Who Love Christmastime
First, let’s deal with people who love the holiday season. For example, my wife is one of those who pulls out all the stops this time of year. Therefore, she loves everything about Christmas. For one thing, she has more holiday decorations that come out of the attic than I’ve ever seen. She starts baking holiday cakes, breads, muffins, and cookies. In like fashion, she’s always watching those romantic holiday movies on TV. Of course, she also loves Christmas music.
In fact, back in the 1990’s we recorded an album of her favorite Christmas songs. You see, I met my wife in Nashville when she was pursuing a career as a singer and songwriter. She has a great, warm, singing voice. Perfect for holiday music in my humble opinion.
Subsequently, after our move to California, that part of her career was over. But she still loves singing. Likewise, she loves Christmas music. So, we recorded about eight holiday songs in an empty studio at the radio station in which I was working at the time. We used karaoke tapes for the music tracks. I added a little bit of echo to her voice in the studio. Then, we made cassette tapes of those songs and sent them out to all our relatives as a Christmas gift. The album was a hit with our families.
Those That Dread Hearing All The Annoying Holiday Hits
Conversely, there are those that dread this time of year. Every store, business, and restaurant you walk into is playing the same holiday hits over and over. Why? There just aren’t that many great Christmas songs. Even if you add all the best secular and religious holiday songs together, you’ll find it’s just the same 25 or so songs performed by different recording artists.
For this reason, many hate hearing even the most popular Christmas songs during the holidays. I’m sure there are familiar holiday hits you don’t enjoy anymore. I get it. But, for the purpose of this article, we’re going to deal with those novelty songs that you can only stand to hear once each year. And maybe not even that many times.
So, prepare yourself, take a few deep breaths to calm your nerves. Then, scroll down and see if you agree that these are five of the most annoying holiday hits of all time. Merry Christmas!
