Pete I’m glad you are enjoying this but I can’t even listen to one Christmas song without wanting to turn it off.
Another too cool for school-er

Says the SF things OP.

Who would be more qualified to spot too-cool-for-schooldom?

This is true. You are definitely more pretentious than I am.  :D

Christmas Tree by Lady Gaga

Spoiler alert: it's not really about a Christmas tree. This song is quite filthy. Do not let your kids listen to it! It's a catchy mashup of Little Drummer Boy and Deck the Halls so that's why it's in my holiday music rotation.

If I'm forced to listen to this garbage give some bourbon and a crooner like Harry Connick Jr. or Michael Bublé.

I think it's gonna be tough after December 26. But I'm not familiar w/ the stations in question.

My favorites?

Christmas Wrapping (by The Waitresses), Paul McCartney's "simply having a wonderful christmastime", and any version of "Sleigh Ride".

Also "Jingle Bell Rock" is not a "rock" song in any way, shape, or form.

Sorry, but "Simply having a wonderful christmas time" is one of my most hated christmas songs, I can't explain why.

Let it snow is my go to christmas jam though.

I find my self listening to Pandora's Electric Christmas station off and on throughout the season

the music is great but it's v repetitive, and the "simply" is a pretty lame effort at finding two syllables to fit in there

It sounds like someone cranked it out on a Casio in their mom's basement.

The Holiday Traditions station is by far my preference over the Holly station.  HT is the old stuff, like Perry Como, Frank, Dean, Gene Autry, Nat, you know.  Holly is the newish stuff.  I can’t take oscar Springsteen Xmas songs, for example.  However, I do like Bono singing Xmas songs, that’s dreamy.

Heard Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by The Boss today. Love that one!

Its a great song
Bowie Drummer Boy is great
Allan Jackson Rudolph Red Nosed
KT Its Christmas please come home

I started the challenge a couple days early this year, tho I am in rental cars frequently during the week where I will probably not listen to the radio at all.  I am limiting the challenge to be in my own personal car.

107.7 in Topeka started playing Christmas music about a week before Thanksgiving.  It's like they're giving people training sessions to work in some Christmas music to their rotations before your challenge starts!

Is there a hallmark movie channel version of this challenge where your wife watches nothing but hallmark christmas movies?

I can only watch Candice Cameron Bure play so many "business type woman too busy for christmas cheer" before my head explodes.  (Or i get kicked out of the room for making jokes about these rinse and repeat movies....)

WHO WILL JOIN ME IN THE CHALLENGE THIS YEAR?!?!

Rules:  Whenever you are driving, you MUST listen to christmas music, and only christmas music from Dec 1 - Jan 1.  This is a great way to self-examine your spiritual condition on a daily basis (or however frequently you drive now).  If you get irritated by the music, remember, it's not the music, it's you.  If you are in the right spiritual condition, you will not be annoyed by the christmas music!

If I was being held at Guantanamo Bay and they played Xmas music, I would completely cave.

Who will join me in the December water-board challenge?

Rules: for the entire month of December, anytime you are relaxing on the couch, you will also be water-boarded. Remember, if you do not enjoy being water-boarded you just aren't in the right spiritual place!
