RE: Worst Holiday Song?

Ahhh...I was reminded this weekend of another atrocious tune.

"Happy Holidays"--with such remarkable lyrics as:

"Well hoopty-do, and dickory-dock,
and don't forget to hang up your sock!
'Cause just exactly at twelve o-clock
he'll be comin' down the chimney, down."

Of course the stupid closing stanza of that phrase ("he'll be comin' down the chimney, down") closes every insipid verse, and in a few versions there's a whole chorale echoing it back to the soloist.

Yuck.

We're listening to a lot of Trans-Siberian Orchestra in the store. Actually very good (including guitarists from Savatage and Testament).

I've added the piano tribute to Iron Maiden and nobody seems to notice. Everybody thinks they're listening to Christmas music. [}:)]
