What Are The Worst Christmas Songs Of All Time?


The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York


Cliff Richard Mistletoe and Wine

We all know Christmas starts early, decorations go up and Christmas songs play on constant repeat in every shop from the beginning of October.

There are those Christmas songs we love to hate, that once stuck in your head set up camp and claim squatters’ rights.

We spoke to students round campus and here are some of the Christmas songs that didn’t jingle their bells:

White Christmas by  Rick Astley; Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens; Santa Baby by Kylie Minogue; All I want for Christmas by Mariah Carey; Proper Crimbo by  Bo’ Selecta!; Mistletoe, by Justin Bieber; Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer by Destiny’s Child; Walking in the Air by Aled Jones; Lonely This Christmas by Mud; Mistletoe and Wine by Cliff Richard; Dominick the Donkey by Lou Monte; Santa Claus has got the Aids by  Tiny Tim.

The Christmas songs Teesside University students what the most also include:

Craig, 21, studies Indie Games Development and  said his most hated Christmas song was Lonely This Christmas by Mud.









Megan, 21, studies Nursing, said that Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl is her most hated Christmas song because it is too overplayed.



Anna, 20, studies Mental Health Nursing and said the worst Christmas song is Proper Crimbo by Bo’ Selecta!


Andrew, 51, studies Mechanical Engineering and said that Rick Astley’s version of White Christmas is the worst Christmas song he’s ever heard.


Jack, 20, who studies Mechanical Engineering said that he hated every Christmas song! Apart from the Rock ‘N’ Roll banger Christmas Time by The Darkness.


As much as we hate to admit it we all have those moments where we find ourselves accidentally singing along to Christmas songs, even if it is the worst Christmas song out there!

Look forward to another long, hard month of the constant sound of Christmas!
