For those of you who don't know yet, I'm taking part in a thirty-day song challenge. Today, I'll be naming my least favourite song.
I'm going to get some grief for this one, I know, as I'm picking on an all-time English Christmas favourite since the 1970s. But it's such an unavoidably irritating song. I'm faced with it everywhere during the English festive season: the supermarket, the radio, friends' houses... this song plays in the background, unremittingly, with a relentless false cheer that makes me long to hear something from Handel's Messiah instead! I have actually tried to like it. I've tried to appreciate the sheer witty funniness of it. I can't. It's just too awful.
Warning: ghastly song choice upcoming. White flares, platforms, hair. It's 1974... really?! "Merry Christmas Everybody" from Slade.
