Christmas Songs That Make Us Cringe – Mark’s Top 5 [VIDEOS]

Being the Music Director for Lite 98.7, I’d like to know, what Christmas song causes you to run screaming from radio? You know, the one that makes you wish the holidays were over so you don’t have to hear it again. According to a recent survey, here’s the top five “ear-ritating” holiday songs that make most people cringe:

5) White Christmas by Bing Crosby.

Here is the original black and white movie version from the 1942 movie “Holiday Inn” featuring Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Marjorie Reynolds. The movie you are probably thinking of is “White Christmas” released in ’54, Bing reprised this song twice in “White Christmas” which also featured Rosemary Clooney and Danny Kaye. Click here for the colorized version in HD.

4) Silver Bells by Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley does do a nice version of this, but Andy Williams has the finest arrangement I’ve ever heard. On Lite 98.7 you’ll hear versions from Clay Aiken & Kimberly Locke, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Martina McBride and others. Apparently this version is somewhat irritating.

3) The Christmas Song by The Chipmunks

The “Christmas Song” sung by Alvin, Simon and Theodore is a true holiday classic, but hearing it year after year can get monotonous. If you just have to hear it and see the video from way back then, well enjoy.

2) Kitties We Have Heard on High, by the Jingle Cats

There has to be a tie between this song from the ‘Jingle Cats’, their version of ‘Jingle Bells’ along with The Barking Dogs and their version of “Jingle Bells’. Anyway you slice it, you’ll be clicking away from this video in a matter of seconds. Don’t plan on hearing  on the radio either for the reason just mentioned.

1) Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer by Elmo & Patsy

Enjoy this music video by Elmo & Patsy performing ‘Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer’, from 1984, compliments of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. Most likely not one of their proudest moments as the video is just as annoying as the song, but admit it, you do like to hear it once in a while.
