I apologize in advance for my list today for Three on Thursday. Why? Because I realize it will cause earworms and not the good kind. So I suggest you don't read it until you can counteract it with other music IMMEDIATELY.
My list today is Three Christmas Songs That Should Be Illegal.
Let me start by saying that I'm pretty willing to let a lot slide as far as Christmas songs go. There are a lot that I think are stupid, or that I just don't like (The Tim gets stabby when "Little Drummer Boy" is played, which amuses me greatly, since it doesn't bother me one way or the other), but most of them fall into a benign category where I just move on to something else or turn off the radio. Those listed below though, are far outside the pale of my patience and tolerance. What better way to declare this than to share with all of you??
In no particular order (I hate them all equally), here they are. And to give you at least one ounce of respite, I'm linking to the Wikipedia entries and images rather than to the actual audios. If you are lucky enough to be unfamiliar with one/all of them, I would suggest going no further than reading about them.
Every time I hear this, I wish I could be run over by a bus.
There is a perfectly good reason this annoying kid is not getting anything for Christmas.
Oh and whoops, I lied - there is another one, so let's just say these two are in a tie:
I will call The Hippopotamus Protection League if I have to!
I have nothing against Italians, or Donkeys, or certainly not Christmas.
Together in this song, though? A crime against humanity.
Again, apologies for the earworms - if it's any consolation, now I'm stuck with them too! Time to find some music I like and try to salvage my brain. :-)
