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.
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 telling you how wonderful everything is?
This song is so annoying it could force you to declare an actual war on Christmas. How annoying are the Chipmunks? Police blasted their songs at high volume to prevent homeless people from sleeping in a train station in the UK. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment! 🐿 🐿 🐿
