20 “Weird” Holiday Songs You Love

The website Mashable came up with a list of 15 Holiday Songs That Are Super Weird But We Somehow Still Love. To be honest, they miss the mark on more than a few of them.

Like, is there anything “super weird” about novelty tracks like “The Chipmunk Song” or “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”?  Not really. What’s even remotely weird about Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas” or Harry Connick Jr.’s “(It Must’ve Been Ol’) Santa Claus”?  The answer is nothing.

They do get a few right, though, like Neil Diamond’s “Cherry Cherry Christmas”, a version of “Feliz Navidad” that Jose Feliciano sings with a little kid, and the children’s “classic” “Dominick the Donkey”.

Then there’s Oi! To the World” by The Vandals, and “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues, which both have questionable language.  Check out the full list below:

1.  “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” by Destiny’s Child



2.  “(It must’ve been ‘ol) Santa Claus” by Harry Connick Jr.



3.  “The Chipmunk Song” by The Chipmunks



4.  “Dominick the Donkey”



5.  “Mistletoe and Wine” by Cliff Richard



6.  “Fairytale Of New York” by The Pogues



7.  “Cherry Cherry Christmas” by Neil Diamond



8.  “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” by Elmo & Patsy



9.  “Last Christmas” by Wham!



10.  “How Do You Spell Channukkahh” by The Leevees



11.  “Feliz Navidad” by Jose Feliciano



12.  “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Mr. Hankey from “South Park”



13.  “Oi! To The World” by The Vandals


CAREFUL!!!  This one has potentially offensive lyrics.


The song describes a Christmas battle between a skinhead and a guy in a turban named Haji.



14.  The theme music from “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’s Christmas Special”



15.  “Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley

However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for local hole in the wall pizza joints, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
