Flashes of Zomby: The Bad Holiday Music Edition

What the hell was Neil Diamond thinking with “Cherry Cherry Christmas?” That, in all its self-referential glory, may well be the worst, the cheesiest, and the most painful of all contrived Christmas pop songs.

I’d much rather listen to Bill Nighy (as the hilarious aging rock star, Billy Mack in the movie Love Actually) singing his “festering turd of a record.” For those who haven’t seen it, in a desperate attempt to make a little more money and get his name back in the headlines, Billy Mack records a version of “Love is All Around” that is written specially for Christmas. Even Mack can’t like it, but his refreshing honesty strikes a chord with listeners and he ends up being the number one Christmas album of the season. Fun stuff.

But I doubt that Neil will have the guts to tell us that his own stunt-record to look to the camera and say, “This is shit, isn’t it?”

Yes, yes, Mr. Nighy, it is shit. But it’s still better than “Cherry Cherry Christmas.”

I ain’t even gonna click on that.

I’m still waiting for a Christmas song by Unknown Hinson.

And, for the benefit of anyone who did click on that ...

Carol of the Bells (MOTAB)

Coventry Carl (Cambridge Singers)

Just picked up Christmas with Chanticleer from the library. Take that, Neil!

Speaking of bad, can we just dispense with that crap from John Lennon and Bob Geldoff while we’re at it?

[Zomby- I only allow spammers who manage to formulate proper sentences. Looking at my own post, I do realize that I’m being a bit of a hypocrite here, but it’s my site and it’s my dime. So there.]
