I'll go with...

I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
Don't You Want Me - Human League (Man, do I detest that song!)

And how did Paul Anka fail to make the list?

freda - That sounds blood-chillingly awful! I am trying to imagine what an oriental person would get out of listening to "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" over and over again...how would they interpret it? Why would they want to? The mind boggles, as Batman used to say.

Fortunately I watch no TV and listen to no commercial radio stations, so I'm relatively well protected from this dreck...until I venture out to the mall or restaurant!

Sadly, it looks as if 'Do They Know It's Christmas', Band Aid 20 version, is set to be this year's number one... they really should have put more effort into doing something more worthy of the cause.

I'm not saying people shouldn't buy it, because it is a worthy cause... but why did they do such a sloppy cover of the original?!

Aaah, bum hug!

Mistletoe and Wine is the worst Christmas song by miles. I think Bohemian Rhapsody is a worse record(it elevatd badness to very high art indeed), but it hasn't got the special kind of populist naffness that makes a true Christmas No 1; so I have to award the palm to the Blessed Cliff.

Well it is Christmas, you'd expect some turkeys. A whole flock of turkeys in fact. But picking "worst of" is to my mind a lot less interesting than "best of".   And while I agree that Fairytale of New York is perhaps the best Christmas record ever, it never made it to that disconcerting list.

However one outstandingly good record that did make it to Number One is the 1983 version of "Only You" by the Flying Pickets.

That's what I thought, Richard, but it seems that someone else made teh No. 1 slot for Christmas that year. Cliff either didn't make it or did so only after Christmas.

And who said Bohemian Rhapsody was bad! Best song ever:-) Especialy if you sing the 'I see a little sillouette' bit to the White Cockade tune...

much underrated "These Are The Days of Our Lives" as well, which was the double A-Side to the re-released Bohemian Rhapsody single when Freddie died.

The lyrics are probably my favourite ever, such a nice song, and my favourite by Queen

I have known normally sane people driven to insensate rage by Long Haired Lover From Liverpool.
Of course, for the full effect you have to be able to see Little Jimmy peforming the song in his toe-curlingly cutesy way.
I believe there was a considerable trade that Christmas in Little Jimmy wax dolls with a good supply of pins. True Jimmy haters heated the pins up first before plunging.
I'm told Mr Osmond is now a reformed character and runs a production company or something.
But can he ever atone for the outrageous and unforgiveable sin that was Long Haired Lover?

P.S. Oh, by the way,just in case I have left any room for doubt I think Long Haired Lover From Liverpool by Little Jimmy Osmond was the worst UK Christmas number one ever. Oh yes. .

Gee.... I think this list is just too short. There are many many bad xmas sing missing. But there's something i can say about all of them: just like chemical weapons they must be banned and if it is possible, to be completely eliminated. Their composers should pay in jail and if their have passed away, they families must return to the humanity all what they have taken away.
STOP B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T. music.
