It’s become an annual tradition on the Dori Monson Show to list the worst Christmas songs of all time. This year’s list included some old favorites, as well as some newer, more oddball selections.
Dori is grated whenever he hears Jose Feliciano’s ‘Feliz Navidad’ or Paul McCartney’s ‘Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime’ come on the radio. Don’t even get him started on Barbara Streisand’s ‘Jingle Bells.’
Listeners chimed in with their wost songs online and on-air, most commonly nominating ‘Christmas in the Northwest,’ ‘Do They Know it’s Christmas’ by Band Aid, and ‘Christmas Shoes.’ A few even introduced previously unknown awful Christmas songs.
