I went looking for more bad Christmas music, but after a while I gave that up and just decided to put these two up.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They aren’t really terrible, they’re just really, really not that good.
Xtina’s Xmas – Christina Aguilera
What is there to say about this?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is filler from her Christmas album.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It barely has lyrics, which is good because the vocals are intermittent.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is faux-edgy and faux-hip hip.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I don’t understand what possessed this young woman to put this recording on an album, but she did, so here it is.
Little Drummer Boy – 98 Degrees
Hey, let’s take a third tier boy band, give them tranquilizers, and then record a Christmas album.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Nick Lachey and crew seemingly sleepwalked their way through their Christmas CD and this song is typical.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Note that the instrumentation at the beginning is reminiscent of the infinitely superior Bing Crosby/David Bowie version.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is as if the producers wanted to remind you of what you could be listening to instead of this.
Finally, I don’t want you guys to get too excited, but I will post my all-time favorite bad Christmas song tomorrow.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â In my opinion, it tops all of these.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I love it to bits, but it is bad, bad, bad.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Feel free to guess what it is (unless you are Supergenius, Ronan, or someone else who already knows).Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A legitimate correct answer will earn…um…bragging rights and a genuine, oddball Christmas mix-cd from me (which will feature none of the bad music entries).
