It is. If I'm not mistaken, there are two of them, but I've only heard one. Not exactly a jolly kind of song.

And if we're picking annoying/depressing SONGS: If I never hear "The Christmas Shoes" again, I'll be happy

My sister cries every time she hears Christmas Shoes. Seriously she could her it cry the here it 5 minutes later start crying again.

it is a horribly written song. I get the message and everything. but it's horribly written.

I can't think of entire albums, but here's three songs if it was desert island or bust time;

1. Bing Crosby - White Christmas
2. Burl Ives - Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
3. Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song

I don't like any of the modern versions of Christmas songs. But I put that down to my age.

Hey Jeff!!!

Have you ever heard Babs' version of Jingle Bells??? I'd take those few seconds in the ring with her as well!!!

I don't hate all of her stuff but I REALLY see what you mean!!! That ego is beyond measure!!!

Just like her duet with Donna Summer...Enough is enough!!!

For me, the best female singer of all time is Ella Fitzgerald...Now that was a talent!!! Well, Ella and Rosie O'Donnell...

Not sure if I have any dislikes... I will have to answer this one later after the radio station starts playing my 24/7 holiday music because I know darn well there are one or two i dont like. Um I think one of them is the Red Baron song I think about snoopy or something?
