Sorry, But These Christmas Songs Are Actually Creepy

Sorry, But These Christmas Songs Are Actually Creepy

Christmas music is a fun way to get into the spirit of the Christmas season as a whole (provided you don’t work in retail, in which case you’re probably sick of them by December 2). Christmas songs are fun to sing along with while you’re wrapping gifts, decorating your tree, hanging your Christmas lights, or just chugging eggnog and rum from the carton on your couch. (Really, who are you to judge me?) Read more on YourTango.com…

Listen: Mariah Carey’s Live Performance Of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Will Make Your Ears Bleed

Listen: Mariah Carey's Live Performance Of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Will Make Your Ears Bleed
Her Face Basically Sums Up Our Feelings

Caution: What you are about to hear, you cannot unhear. Last night, Mariah Carey took the stage at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony in NYC, and sang her hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Needless to say, she killed in…in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE. Like, she actually butchered the hell out of her own holiday classic. The Concourse released an unedited edition of the performance (above), which isolates Mariah’s vocals, and consequently made our ears bleed.

Mariah had it coming, though. The notorious diva was three hours late to the show’s taping on Tuesday night, and was asked to leave. NBC allegedly told Mariah that the only way she could perform at the ceremony is if she sang it live on Wednesday night. So she did…and then this trainwreck happened and crushed our Christmas spirit.

Listen To Kristen Bell & Straight No Chaser’s Modern Day Christmas Carol “Text Me Merry Christmas”

Listen To Kristen Bell & Straight No Chaser's Modern Day Christmas Carol "Text Me Merry Christmas"
What's A Phone Call?

I have a new favorite Christmas song that I firmly believe should take the place of “Christmas Shoes” on every radio station during the holiday season. (Let’s be honest, that song is hella depressing and has no place wedged in between “Jingle Bells” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”) Kristen Bell joined a cappella group Straight No Chaser to create a modern day Christmas carol called “Text Me Merry Christmas,” which basically sums up every interaction I’ve had on December 25th for the last five years.

A preview:

Text me Merry Christmas/ Send a selfie too/ If you do, I’ll go ‘Neath the mistletoe/ And pretend my screen is you/ Show me that you love me/ Text xo to kiss and hug me/ I’ll be right here waiting/ For my pants to start vibrating.

Check out the music video for the (fingers crossed) new holiday classic, and view the full lyrics after the jump! “Text Me Merry Christmas” will be available on iTunes tonight at midnight, so get your texting fingers ready.  Keep reading »

Here they are, in no particular order: Keep reading »

Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and horrifically bad gifts? Read on for three modernized Christmas carols! Keep reading »

Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber‘s “All I Want For Christmas” duet debuted last night during the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. The best I can say about it is “feel good Christmas music” with a questionably appropriate music video.

Now, Mariah Carey is Mariah Carey. High notes and shaking her spray-tanned booty is what she’s about. It is the way of the world. I think her short-short-short Santa outfit in her “All I Want For Christmas” music video with Justin Bieber pushes the line of good taste. But hey, this is a grown woman obsessed with rainbows, stuffed animals and butterflies that we’re talking about.

No, my discomfort with the “All I Want For Christmas” music video is the flirtation between Mariah and Justin Bieber. Keep reading »
