Cringe-inducing carols

I saw where PLANET3RRY is planning to come up with a list of his favorite Christmas songs.

I have lots of favorites. I really like “O Holy Night”—especially the version performed by Michael Crawford, not the one belted out by screeching banshee Mariah Carey

Which brings me to an entirely different list—EW’s Pop Watch has a list of least favorite Christmas songs. This sounds like more fun!

Easily the worst Christmas song in my opinion—perhaps one of the worst songs in the history of music—is “The Christmas Shoes” by NewSong. What’s the point of a Christmas song that makes you want to slit your wrists after you listen to it?

Also, anything by the Carpenters makes me immediately change stations and I’m not wild about Stevie Wonder’s “One Day at Christmas.”

What Christmas songs make you say “Bah, humbug”? Start the list in comments below…

I know I will get rotten tomatos thrown at me but I really cannot stand Elvis' Blue Christmas.

I think it's the wooo wooo wooo being sung in the background that makes me cringe.

Right up there is this dorky Irish song about the Christmas Donkey. Makes you want to rip your fingernails off. Seriously.

Irish song?!? Is there another one I don't know about?

The only Donkey Christmas song I know is "Jingity-jing! It's Dominic the Donkey! Jingity-jing! The Italian Christmas Donkey!"
