Now Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime, there's a load of crap. Cynical cash-in with a dumb synth played overtop of lame bells. Frankly, that song makes me dread Christmas every year, because it means I'll have to listen to it again. The song ruins Christmas!
I agree that this is a terrible song, but it is in the "so bad it's good" category for me, along with "Do They Know it's Christmastime". The latter is actually not only a bad song, but is more than a bit offensive. Still catchy, though!
This was one of the first songs I thought of too. It has been on the top of my list for the worst Christmas songs in the past, but I think I have come around and I'm into it now.
I think @49th found it with "Temporary Secretary" by McCartney.
I'm a big Beatles and Paul fan, but a lot of those older artists lost their way in the 80s when they tried to keep up with the times. I like all the goofy songs he wrote with The Beatles that everyone seems to hate too. Opinions on "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and "Obladi Oblada"?
