The song might not be as bad as we think. Or maybe it's worse?

pretty detailed discussion....

I am fairly sure this guy does not like this song....

Back when the film Neptune's Daughter came out it was a different time. The innocence of the period or of the song no longer exists. Yes, it's a great tune by Frank Loesser but in the present time hearing the song out of context is difficult. There's many songs and works that have fallen out of use.

guess what showed up in the news today? . . .

went to a Christmas cabaret last night - this song came up in the montage - was sung by a 32 year old woman and an 18 year old boy - just didn't even seem appropriate.....

I worry about political correctness chipping away at some of our cherished traditions. There are people that are so easily offended. "Baby, It's Cold Outside" was an innocent song for an innocent time. Our best memories are of the innocent times.

Last Christmas by Wham (1984) - just annoys me for some reason, especially when I can't turn it off fast enough and it gets stuck in my head for half the day. :crying:

The Fairy on the Christmas Tree by The Three Sisters annoys me, but Michael Buble (whose brand of contrived "cool" I only just tolerate at the best of times) did a cover of Santa Baby called "Santa Buddy" that drives me especially up the wall. It's got all the indecorousness and material esurience of the original, but also includes Buble reasserting his masculinity with every line.

"Having a Wonderful Chritmastime" by Paul McCartney.  It sounds like someone said, "hey Paul, quick, write a Christmas song" and five minutes later this was the result.  

Amen!!!!!!!

Absolutely awful. I would rather have Santa and all his reindeer run me over with the sleigh than to listen to this.

I would rather clean out the reindeer stalls with my bare hands while wearing underwear made from holly than to listen to this!

I love Shatner immensely....BIG Star Trek and TJ Hooker fan. But......I'd rather eat a real Ponderosa Pine Christmas tree with a spoon than to listen to this.

Painful. Just painful. Let ME get ran over by the reindeer than to torture me with this song from the inner depths of Hades itself.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
