Favorite Christmas Tunes Dec. 3rd, 2012 @ 08:35 PM Reply

Not long until Christmas, and I've been hearing plenty of Christmas tunes on the radio and I enjoy nearly all of them. Sure, there are a few here and there that I find annoying, but they always get me into the cheery mood. I love everything about the holiday season, which for me starts December 1st. Christmas tunes along with old video games and old films are my top nostalgic factors. I have a few personal favorites that were played in old films or whatnot but I adore them all for the general mood they bring with them. What are some of your favorites Newgrounds? A few of mine are:

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree-Brenda Lee
Frosty the Snowman-Gene Autry
Happy Christmas (War is Over)-John Lennon
White Christmas-Bing Crosby
Santa Claus is Coming to Town-Frank Sinatra
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow-Dean Martin
Winter Wonderland-Darlene Love
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year-Andy Williams
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer-Gene Autry

...and plenty of others.

I actually like many of the classic songs. Mainly the oldies renditions by Sinatra and such.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

All of them are shit.

But recently I heard the worst of them all, a christmas-country rendition of "twelve days of Christmas" with each of the twelve items replaced with stereotypical hillbilly bric-a-brac; "twelve cans of bud, eleven shotgun shells, herpa derpa derp and the parts for a Mustang GT."

Yeah well a lot of young hipsters these days are trying this crazy thing, it's called not listening to music they hate.

You don't have the option of what music you hear when you're at work or on other peoples' property. This would be obvious to you if you weren't a child.

17 isn't technically a child but whatever. Also you can't be hearing this same rendition over and over so many times that it's that annoying you so much.

"The twelve days of Christmas" is the most repetitive song ever. You only have to hear it once and you've heard it practically a dozen times.

Most people have favorites and ones that they can't stand. There is one or two that I treat with a lot of vitriol. You know, Christmas Shoes.... by that one guy, and Baby It's Cold Outside by that one duo. It is entirely due to the lyrics and how they can be taken. I know a lot of people like CS, but I can't really stand the song. It's so...syrupy and lame. Some poor little kid wants to buy his mom some shoes so she can die while looking good, and this guy that doesn't have any Christmas Spirit suddenly gets some Christmas Spirit through this situation. Then I'm sure he went and sold off all of his possessions and became a born again something or other.

Baby It's Cold Outside sounds really rapey. That's why I don't like that song.

When it comes to favorites though, a lot of them have been overplayed to death, so I can hardly stand those either by the end of the season.

Bar none, this is the coolest Christmas song.
