    This is my absolute favorite by Mojo Nixon and the Toadliquors. It actually makes me feel, dare I say it, a bit merry!

    by “the Charlie Brown song I was listening to last night, I meant the one that has the vocals called “Christmastime is here. “. It’s horrible. It’s what the torturers will play to drive me insane. They just repeat the same phrases over and over in this slow, ponderous dirge.

    Maybe by the Charlie Brown song you meant that one with all the piano.

    edited to add: I listen to your cheerful Christmas song with vocals, and I agree “la la la la la “is as good as any words for a vocal Christmas song

    I'm not really a fan of Christmas music either. We have a few friends that LOVE it and will excitedly have it playing when they host Christmas parties. As long as the playlist doesn't include that dreadful Paul McCartney song "Simply having a wonderful Christmas Time" I can tolerate it. And no, I will not provide a link like I usually do for songs I mention since that would require actually listening to a snippet of it. And besides, everyone knows that damn song...

    I like instrumental stuff. I have a couple of albums of Christmas music that is lute, guitar, and Celtic harp. Awesome. I also enjoy stuff like the Nutcracker. I also have an album of carols from a brass ensemble.

    Apple Music has a bunch of nice playlists of holiday music. I like the sentimental one that’s from the 40s through the 60s. All the great classics.

    IL: This is the one I meant. I think I know the one you hate, and I agree it is truly dreadful.

    IL: I think the detestable song is "Christmas Time is Here," but I think it would be more appropriately named "The Children's Dismal Christmas Dirge." The lyrics should be about sitting on Santa's lap after waiting in a long line, and he is scary and he smells bad, and you didn't get the one thing you wanted the most for Christmas, and you could tell that your mom hated the gift you made her, even though she said she loved it, and you found out your parents had been lying to you about Santa all those years. Stuff like that.
    I may have to come out of retirement to produce holiday music. I've got ideas.

    I can see those lyrics in that horrible “Christmas Time is here” song. They are perfectly suited.

    If you've ever worked in retail, you will despise all Christmas holiday music.
