    Nah
    Christmas music can be good

    I think some of the songs people have posted in here are proof of that

    But Christmas music, to me, means the constant deluge that starts in the middle of November anytime I step outside of my house

    And that's all the same shit, and that's really the problem I have with it

    Once the world starts giving me Christmas music that I haven't heard before (covers are fine, but original is even better), I'll change my vote to yeah

    Anyways, that said, this is my favorite Christmas song, and it's a particularly nice salve to some of the retail woes of working during the Christmas season (or at least it once was for me):

    I like a lot of Christmas music. I tend to avoid the local Christmas music station, because they largely play the same twelve songs on a loop, and the only one of those songs I can stand is "All I Want For Christmas Is You," though.

    This is a good Christmas song even though it only really qualifies because it has "Christmas" in the title, but I don't care

    Christmas music is extremely good, except for John Lennon's take on the genre.

    That song is like a guy at a party who's glumly talking about the heat death of the universe while everyone else is trying to have fun.

    McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime isn't nearly as bad but is still mediocre

    Former Beatles apparently can't do Christmas music well

    Aww, I like Wonderful Christmastime

    I mean it's no Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree but it's pretty alright.

    Yeah this is my feeling too. It's not that christmas music is bad inherently, it's just that it's EVERYWHERE, and the majority of it is LAZY. It adds nothing. It is a bad, generic version of an old ass song.

    Also the old punk rocker in me can't help but seeing bands/singers releasing christmas albums of covers as a anything but a heinous, lazy money grab.

    I would have voted extremely but this is a world where Wonderful Christmastime and Last Christmas and Do They Know It's Christmas exist and fuck those songs in particular.

    Also it bums me out how much Baby It's Cold Outside has been ruined for me as I've grown up and realized that it's a fucking trash song for creepos.

    The brief portion of my life in which I worked in a movie theater encompassed the Christmas season

    It was the first Christmas I didn't spend with my family (this upcoming one is going to be the second, but that's much more by choice)

    I drank a lot of vodka and snows after that shift, let me tell you

    I've yet to find a cover of "Winter Wonderland" that I like more than The Miracles' version. Don't think I've ever heard it on the radio, though.

    I think that this criticism of Baby It's Cold Outside is wildly overstated, personally

    Sometimes someone mixes you a drink and you want to know what's in it afterwards

    That's a normal reaction when you're drinkin' with someone

    From personal experience, the only thing that rivals (or surpasses) Christmas music in how much mediocrity or garbage you have to sift through to find good stuff is Christian music

    Or anime

    Hell yeah, and the weirder the better. Like "Monster's Holiday," which is the Christmas version of Monster Mash.

    Here it is! It's just Monster Mash except the monsters are planning to steal the toys from Santa's sleigh.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSM5B5Z6Q0o

    Monsters Holiday is good and important

    I would like to qualify my answer that I very much dislike what is commonly presented as "Christmas music" but Christmas-themed music can be very good. Hell, even the overplayed traditional Christmas stuff can be good with the right arrangements

    Like it's got a squealing whine droning through the whole song that is vaguely menacing. The keyboards sound like someone just plugged in a Casio keyboard and is fooling around with the patches. The lyrics are like... sad, but not intentionally? They're describing a sad situation while trying to put a good spin on it? Like a veneer of cheerful paint over some life sucks level shit

    it's...not really, though, like...sure, if you focus on "say, what's in this drink," but like...all the "objections" in the song aren't really about her not wanting to, they're about how she's going to catch hell from a bunch of assholes if she stays, and he's essentially giving her a bunch of excuses to hand out like "the weather's shitty and I don't want to die"

    I'd extend it for the entire Christmas season as the time I'm cool with it

    I'm also not really happy about it yet though, and would be perfectly happy if it held off another couple of weeks

    Sixteen years of restaurant work has made me despise any and all forms of Holiday Cheer. There was a lovely young bartender who was positively jubilant at the prospect of getting paid on her day off to decorate the Christmas tree at my current kitchen and it made my black heart squeeze once in exhausted denial:

    "Daisy, your enthusiasm is almost infectious .....

    It won't work."

    Speaking of Baby It's Cold Outside. I do like this version a lot.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWw4BB9bRP8

    If you can't tell, Sharon Van Etten is one of my absolute favorites.

    Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer is the secret sequel to that song.

    It's also easily the third-most baffling idea for an animated Christmas special I've ever seen.
