New Christmas Music SUCKS!

    It's already starting at the office. Christmas music 24/7! Is it just me, or does new Christmas music get worse every year. This year, they've had the bright idea of adding Hip-Hop drum loops in front of old classics like "White Christmas" and "Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas". Not to mention Britney Freakin Spears singing some crap about getting her love under the tree...I can't take it anymore!

    Oh...and this song that says "simply having a wonderful Christmas time" over and over? It's the most annoying song EVER! I swear they play a different version of it every hour. Those words now translate in my psyche to "Kill, Kill, Devil Comes". This stuff is like a genetal napalm shower set to music.

    ...just my two cents.

    I know exactly what song you're talking about, and I agree completely. They should blare that song during hostage situations or police standoffs. They would end a lot quicker.......

    I love Christmas songs, but not pop shit. I love hearing O Holy Night and Carol of the Bells

    I would rather tear my own eyes out than listen to Xmas music. Luckily I'm marrying a Jew, so he feels the same way. :biggrin:

    The only "new" xmas music I have really liked has been the Trans-Siberian Orchestra stuff and their concerts are perfect to get going for Xmas.

    By far the worst Xmas CD ever is the Barenaked Ladies Xmas CD. My wife bought it last year b/c she likes them and it was absolutely unlistenable.

    Speaking of the Barking Dogs, this was an actual Dear Abby column a few years ago: :lol:

    Dear Abby

    Barking dog meets its match in broadcast of 'Jingle Bells'

    21 Dec 2003

    DEAR ABBY,

    Oh, what a wonderful time of year! The air is filled with Christmas songs — from “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby to “Jingle Bells” by the Barking Dogs.

    In my neighborhood, we’ve had a problem with one neighbor’s dog barking all night. Several of us tried to ask the owner to please do something about it. Our pleas fell on deaf ears.

    We tolerated it until recently. After hearing “Jingle Bells” by the Barking Dogs, four of us neighbors had an idea.

    During our weekly card game, I made the comment, “If I had an outside sound system, I’d play the Barking Dogs’ ‘Jingle Bells’ each night when the dog barks.” I was making a joke, but my card buddies took me up on it. “Rick” has outdoor speakers, “Barney” has an old PA system, “Art” volunteered to set it up, and I was to get the record or tape of “Jingle Bells.”

    Three days later, everything was set up and ready. When the dog started its barking around 1 a.m., I reached over, turned on the PA system and played “Jingle Bells.” The dog shut up! Two hours later, the barking resumed. Again I turned on the PA system. I know my neighbors were rolling over laughing as much as I was.

    The next day, I took my daily jog around the neighborhood. The dog owner was outside and I stopped to say hello. He asked me if I had heard the dogs barking “Jingle Bells.” I told him, yes, and I was happy to hear them do it in harmony. Then I added, “I wonder if they’ll keep it up during the year — say, New Year’s and Easter.” He said, “I hope not!”

    Needless to say, it took only two more nights before he got the message. Yesterday, when I stopped by his place, he told me he had found a better home for his dog, with a loving child to play with.

    Our poker game has the record of the Barking Dogs framed on the wall to remind us of the miracles of Christmas. Woof, woof — and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.
