#20 of the 25 Worst Christmas Songs...Ever
'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.
20. Mele Kalikimaka - Jimmy Buffet
Pronounced Mel-eh Kah-leeky-Mock-ah…I think? The word on the street says it means 'Merry Christmas' in Hawiian. Guess it’s something about no T’s or S’s? Who knows? This is one of those songs were the different adaptations wear it out. Of course it's not even close to the number of versions Sleigh Ride has, but for this song to have over 20 seems like a bit much. And Jimmy’s take on it gives it the feeling that it will never ever end. On a side note, is it me or does this song make you think of that scene in Christmas Vacation where Clark’s having his pool dream. (You know, where Cousin Eddie turns into Nicolette Scorsese on the Diving Board...Wowsers!)
BTW - Look at the YouTube video above....Nice "Florida" postcard on the "Hawiian" song huh? Duh!
