10 Christmas Songs We All Hope To Never Hear Again

- Page 1

Christmas music is supposed to be a fun, lighthearted, and catchy way to get into the spirit of the season. However, sometimes, whether it's through the song being overplayed or just flat-out awful, we feel less cheerful and more homicidal whenever one of these tunes comes on while we're shopping. These 10 songs are especially bad for that.

Mariah Carey - "All I Want For Christmas Is You"

The only thing more absurd than how much money Mariah makes off this song is how often I have to hear it whenever I leave the house.

Yeah yeah yeah, the original's a classic or whatever. The problem is, there's been so many horrendous covers of this over the years that it's impossible to even hear the original in your head anymore.

The songs just get worse from here...

The catchy lyrics had everyone saying "she bop, he bop, and we bop. I bop, you bop, and they bop." If you look up the definition for "bop," it means

10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
