    In the past couple years I've been listening to ALL Christmas CD's
    I can find.
    It started because i needed to hear some different CD's
    than my favorite few ( Bing,Rat Pack,etc...etc )
    I listen to most from a Library, as my source -- geez ! I'd kick
    my own @ss if I paid money for some of the crap I've heard !
    Anyway.......
    I'm not talking about bad "novelty" songs ( "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" )
    to the incredibly annoying Chipmunks ---
    no....I'm talking about serious performers/singers putting out a Christmas CD.
    *
    I've listened to ALOT of old timers from Burl Ives to Ella Fitzgerald to Blues to crooners
    to current POP singers.
    *
    This year, I found a dissappointing Johnny Cash Christmas CD.
    I was hoping it would be a new gem........no such luck !
    His style and voice just didn't "cut it".
    Now.....I'm NOT trashing Johnny Cash !!!
    All you Johnny Cash fans.....RELAX !!!......
    I love the guy's music.........but not this CD.
    *
    *
    Now.........THEE WORST ?
    I heard it last year for my first time......I don't remember what year this singer
    recorded it.
    But this singer SHOULD OF HAD SOMEONE SAY ....."Don't " !!!!!!
    *
    As I listened to the first song ---
    I thought "uh-oh ?"........."this is NOT good, at all."
    Then, i thought......"Well. maybe, it'll be SO bad....it might work out, it might be good ?"
    *
    Now........i'm NOT TRASHING the singer's other high selling work.
    So, ALL YOU FANS........RELAX !!!!
    *
    But this singer couldn't hit the range of some of these Christmas carols -
    the arrangments SUCKED, too !
    I WAS SHOCKED.......just how bad this singer sounded........I could only
    listen once.......and shook my head......"What was this guy and his "people" thinking ?"
    *
    Yes........it's a guy.
    *
    *
    *

    *
    *
    *
    THEE WORST CHRISTMAS CD ?........I've heard thus far.....WOW ! >>>> BAD !!!!!

    We have a really strange collection of Christmas music. Lots of novelty songs by strange people (Joe Pesci anyone?) and many inappropriate songs (SouthPark's Merry F-ing Christmas, always reminds me not to play this list when the parents are here.)

    Dan has an album from when he was a kid. I call it "It's a Tuba Christmas" but it's really "Ding, dong dandy something". Imagine Disney's Electric Light parade featuring tubas AND doing Christmas songs. It's a memory from Dan's childhood, but for me it's part of the holiday torture. :)

    Dean Martin's in my favorite. When he calls Rudolph, "Rudy" I LOL every time.

    My mom is a Willie Nelson fan - I am not. But, she wanted his Pretty Paper Christmas CD. So of course I bought it for her years ago- she listened it to it once and she's the Willie fan.
