#21 of the 25 Worst Christmas Songs...Ever

Has Simon always had that dumb look on his face?

'Tis the season for us to be smothered by Holiday Jams.  Truth be told this is my favorite time of the year.  Still there are some songs that make me cringe around Christmas.  So, everyday through Christmas Eve I'll be featuring the 25 Worst Christmas Songs...ever.

21. The Christmas Song - Alvin & the Chipmunks

OK, as a kid I loved this song…loved it.  Now, if it’s played once at Christmas that’ll pretty much cover it.  And talk about a song that could use auto tune, even Dave calls out Alvin for being flat.  Anyhow, The Christmas Song was produced in 1958, and it totally sounds like it.  Fun Fact: The year it came out the songs won 3 Grammy’s (No foolin’)

Oh, and what’s with the Hula hoop?  Really, a Hula hoop?  Alvin loses serious street cred with that one right?  But after I did a little research (Thanks Wikipedia) back in ’58, over 100 million Hula hoops were sold world wide that year.  They were all the rage.  Still, didn’t they have Hot Wheels back then, or toy fire trucks?  Fire trucks rule!
