What's the WORST 80s holiday song?



Christmas80s_2 I've challenged Times pop music Sean Daly's blogging replicant Stephanie Hayes to a battle of wits this week: On Friday, we'll each unveil our own "Top 5 holidays songs of the 80s" list.

But we'll also reveal our opinion of the WORST holiday song of the 80s. So my question to my beloved 80s nation is this: What was your least favorite holiday song of the decade?

Here are some candidates:

  • Christmas Is The Time To Say 'I Love You' - Billy Squier
  • Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy - David Bowie & Bing Crosby
  • Jingle Bell Rock - Daryl Hall & John Oates
  • Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) - U2
  • Christmas in Dixie - Alabama

Or maybe it's this little gem -- "Santa's Goin' to Kokomo." Click here to view the video. I can't be sure it's an 80s song. But it has the footprints of the 80s all over it.

Please, let me know if you can think of other dreadful tunes. I'll gladly use the best pick ... "giving you full credit, of course, Mr. Spicoli."
