What’s Your Favorite Christmas Novelty Song?
Christmas inspires all sorts of music. This time of year, your can hear everything from the sublime to the ridiculous. Right now, I'd like to focus on the ridiculous if you don't mind. I'm talking abut all the "funny" or novelty song that one hears at Christmas time.
Christmas novelty tunes have been around for a very long time and many of them, even the older one's crop up anew this time of year. Christmas novelty stuff goes back at least to the 40s and probably beyond that. A lot of people are familiar with the tune, "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth." That little novelty tune goes back to 1944.
Like it or not, novelty tunes are a big part of Christmas and, every now and then, one will crop up and become a new annual favorite. Most of us get tired of the novelty tunes after we've hard them a time or tow. Remember how funny "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" was the first time you heard it? Well, as old and tired as it is, we still get people calling in and requesting that song.
Obviously, these silly songs have a life of their own and, while some people get sick of them, others enjoy some of the novelty tunes this time of year. Do you secretly like one of those novelty tunes? Tell us which one. As usual, we have provided some suggestion, but feel free to write in your own answer.
