When you listen to "Wonderful Christmastime," you're really hearing the sound of Paul McCartney selling his soul. He didn't need the money—he just picked the quickest, cheapest, cheesiest route towards a garbage hit for eternal holiday airplay. But is "Wonderful Christmastime" more awful than "Baby, It's Cold Outside," a supposedly charming back-and-forth between a reluctant lady and her suitor that now just seems like an ode to sexual assault?

The Votes Are In!

It’s that time of year again! Millions of shoppers will be hit with wave after unrelenting wave of holiday music to the point of aural madness. To celebrate this month of obnoxious festive melodies, we’ve taken the 16 most reviled Christmas songs and are pitting them against each other all month long! Don't forget to cast your vote in these other exciting head-to-head debates:

Which Christmas song is the more hellish: 'Little Drummer Boy' or 'The Night Before Christmas'?

Which Christmas song is more of a drag: 'The Christmas Shoes' or 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town'?

Which Christmas song is most irritating: 'Feliz Navidad' or 'The Chipmunk Song'?


The train wreck that is "Wonderful Christmastime" makes its first fatal miscalculation with the title and never stops:

Hey, Paul, there’s no such word as Christmastime. It’s two words. For example, I wouldn’t say “this songsucks,” I’d say “this song sucks,” with a space. 

Also, Christmas is hard for a lot of people—death, divorce, and dysfunction hit everybody harder at the holidays. How much worse are those struggles with Sir Paul in your ear like a chipmunk telling you how wonderful everything is?

First released in 1944, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is supposed to be a playful repartee between a woman trying to leave and a man trying to get her to stay— but in the cold light of 2016, it just looks like a tribute to roofies and rape (the line "Say what's in this drink?" is particularly cringeworthy). A Minnesota couple just recorded an updated version of the song that points out the importance of consent.
