Acceptable Christmas songs

SO I have work today.
Which I don't mind.
Except that instead of the usual outdated pop music playlist,
Its the same five Christmas songs.

I feel like its an unpopular opinion, but I really don't like listening to Christmas music.

I mean, I like it if its playing in the background while decorating, or some other holiday task. But I don't get how people can just sit around and listen to Christmas Pandora!!

Here are my reasons:

1. You hear the same song too many times, just by different people

2. When people try and cover Christmas songs, they make an effort of trying to sound unique and different. They drag out words longer than the original, they belt out random words, they try to make it sound more, Im sorry. Frosty The Snowman will never sound  any cooler than it already does (no pun intended).

3. People start listening to Christmas music IN NOVEMBER. 
Im sorry I cant handle this monopoly of music for over a month!!

With all of that said...
There are some exceptions which I will gladly share:

Let Me Sleep- Pearl Jam
I would listen to this even if it wasn't a Christmas song. Love it. Love Pearl Jam.

Little St. Nick - Beach Boys
Gotta love the Beach Boys

Christmas In Hollis- RUN DMC
I love RUN DMC, and this is awesome.

Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses
Always liked this haha

Hannukah Song - Adam Sandler
Not Christmas... but all three of these are hysterical

Jingle Bells - Barbara Streisand
I do not listen to Barbara Streisand.. But even I can admit she does a god job of this,
And its kind of really funny.

Merry Christmas (I dont want to fight tonight) - The Ramones
Lame video, good song. Love the Ramones.

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
 I legitimately love this song lol, My favorite actual Christmas song.

Mele Kelikimaka - Bing Crosby
I love this, Hawaii Christmas sounds chill to me.

We Wish You A Reggae Christmas - Yellowman
This is ridiculous lol but i seriously love it

What Are You Doing New Years Eve? - Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Not Christmas... but I'm obsessed with both of them. And ukuleles. JGL couldn't get more adorable.

White Christmas - Red Hot Chili Peppers
LOL ok randomly after this show... last July... Chad Smith from RHCP, the drummer, sang White Christmas. Im sorry, they're just my favorite.

Happy Xmas, War is Over - John Lennon
Well, this song is great. And John Lennon died yesterday, 32 years ago. There will never be another like him, no talent will come close. The world should take a lesson.

Also, Happy Birthday to Jim Morrison yesterday!! He would have been 69!!

Merry Christmas!

Aesthetically Yours,

  3. These are all great songs! I love Happy Xmas! I was listening to it yesterday. I agree, no Christmas music until actual December, it's just overload when you hear it and Thanksgiving hasn't even passed yet.

  4. Sam i think today was my last day of chirstmas music at work! haha and i forgot Jack Johnsons christmas songs too

  5. you have me over here laughing, I have to say I'm the guilty party… I love christmas music but now that you mention it, I do agree that people try WAY too hard to "make it their own". I however, can list to christmas music all December long, and I'm even guilty of playing my music the day after thanksgiving… every year, Great post, i really enjoyed this read
