A List of Christmas Songs Banned by a London Grocery Store Chain
Morrison's, a London grocery chain, has started a war on Christmas music. Well, what could only loosely be called Christmas music. Surprisingly, no Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer on this list (maybe never made it onto British playlists to begin with) but there are surely some that you'll be nodding your head in agreement with.
The Christmas Song - Alvin and the Chipmunks
No surprise here. This is one of those songs you love to hate or just hate. Or maybe you're okay with hearing it once a year but please not a single time more than that.
I’m The Christmas Queen - Miss Piggy
I would consider myself a pretty avid fan of The Muppets and I don't recall seeing this one before. I guess I wasn't missing much.
The Christmas Song - David Hasselhoff
Anything post-80s featuring The Hoff probably should be avoided. Well, other than drunken Hoff eating a hamburger on the bathroom floor-- that's worth checking out.
Christmas Wrapping - The Spice Girls
What did Santa say to The Spice Girls? Tell me what you want, what you really, really want! They may have asked for a zigazig ah but the rest of say no more of this song.
Oh Holy Night - Celine Dion
Must admit to being a little surprised by this one. This is the only one that doesn't strike me as a novelty song. It isn't one you'd want to stick grocery shelves to either though,
Please Daddy (Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas) - John Denver
The song that's so bad that it's good, but not so good you'd want it on your holiday playlist. Love that the YouTube video just cuts back and forth between a burning fire and a Christmas Tree.
Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga
This is a terrible song. I could see it working for all of three seconds as part of a Target ad or something but anything more than that? No. I bailed after twenty five seconds.
Christmas Conga - Cyndi Lauper
This isn't her best, sure, but if these are the most annoying songs they can come up with I'll happily trade NewSong's Christmas Shoes monstrosity for this.
Santa Baby - Madonna
No matter who performs this one, it's annoying. As if that wasn't enough, it gets stuck in your head so your inner voice does that stupid baby talk thing. Great, it's doing it now.
So those are the songs banned by a grocery store chain in London. Now that they've got the ball rolling, let us know what songs you've banned from your Christmas playlist!
