Which Christmas songs known or unknown do you detest?

I'd vote for this "remix" of Slade's "Merry Christmas Everyone" from 1998 by dance duo Flush. I could understand if it was the whole song in a dance mix, but it's very disjointed with Slade's bit untouched left alone in the chorus!

Another one I go for is "Mary's Boy Child" by Boney M - That's the Katie Price of cheap Christmas songs.

Oh dear, there are too many to mention, but this one stands out as particularly awful, although the unintentional hilarity of the video makes up for it.

Merry Xmas Everyone - Slade
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday - Wizzard
All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon
I Believe In Father Christmas - Greg Lake
White Christmas - Bing Crosby (so old-fashioned now)
Stop The Cavalry - Jona Lewie
Step Into Christmas - Elton John
That one by The Darkness
Anything by Cliff Richard (epitome of naff)
Anything by Michael Buble (his Christmas album)
Anything on Justin Bieber's Christmas album
Any version of Do They Know It's Christmas that isn't the original

I know it's not a Christmas song but Stay Another Day - East 17 is pretty bad.

Merry Xmas Everyone - Slade
Merry Christmas Everyone was by Shakin' Stevens. Slade did Merry Christmas Everybody.

No those songs are the best Slade is good and so is Wizzard and so is Elton John and so is Jona Lewie. Do any of your family like the ones you hate?

There's no such thing as a bad christmas song imo, as long as they're in the spirit of christmas there's always something positive about them.

You've basically listed some of the most classic and loved Christmas songs?

Well mum likes Saviours Day by Cliff Richard (the instrumental) and I think she doesn't mind the John Lennon one too much. She hates the rest though. Dad doesn't really care much for them.

Merry Christmas Everyone was by Shakin' Stevens. Slade did Merry Christmas Everybody.
I got mixed up

I agree with most of Cnbcwatcher's list... I loved the classic songs as a kid but they're trotted out year on year and they've worn really thin, especially when the shops are playing them mid November on!

What about your cousins and brothers and sisters and grandparents and your friends do they like Slade, Wizzard and all the others you listed? Even though you don't like them do they get you in the mood for Christmas?

Boney M - Mary's Boy Child fills me with warm childhood Christmas love and excitement - I was 4 the Christmas it came out so I guess that's why!

But does Slade, Wizzard, John Lewie, Yoko and John, Band Aid and the others get you in the mood for Christmas?

I don't have any brothers, sisters or grandparents and I rarely talk to my cousins. Never really asked my friends what they thought of those songs, but at the college end of exams parties they all start dancing to them. I suspect a lot of them are drunk by then though Well no not really, especially when they are played over and over and over and over...

Oh I like that song alright. In fact I have the Boney M Christmas Party album and it's really good.

I don't mind Christmas as long as the build up begins in December and not September and I don't have to be subjected to those songs hundreds of times before the actual event.

But all the lively ones that you listed are the best you must like them when its the day before Christmas? Do you like Last Christmas and Fairytale Of New York? Does your mum like Band Aid's Christmas song?

I don't want to sound like a misery, but nothing much gets me in the Christmas mood... I live alone, have no partner or kids so it's usually just an anticlimax. I'd go to work instead if I could.

Actually no. Last Christmas and Fairytale of New York are fine as long as I don't have to hear them too much. And as for the Band Aid one the only version worth listening to is the original. The newer versions are crap.

The only way that I will listen to the following songs is when LeAnn Rimes sings them.

"Santa Baby"
"All I Want For Christmas Is You" (the Vince Vance & the Valiants song)

God bless you and her always!!!

Holly (a day one fan of LeAnn)

I think quite the opposite. Every Christmas song that isn't Fairytale of New York is awful to me.

Serious question

Do you get lonely at all or is it just 'another day' to you
