Looks like the writer of the article just went to BizarreRecords.com and took screen shots of some of the oddest Christmas albums. And while I know that it's all matter of taste, I don't think you can claim that Mariah Carey's or Harry Connick's Christmas albums are down there with the likes of yuletide offerings from Twisted Sister and Death Row.

I'd add this one:

But to be honest, I listen to it (on vinyl) every year. Pernell Roberts had a damn good singing voice.

Come on, how can they diss the great Slim Whitman like that? It's gotta be a classic (even though I admit I've never heard it).

Now Roseanne doing "Santa Baby" (or anything else, really) is enough to make you ill. I would love to see Charo doing the Augie Rios classic, "Mamacita (Donde Esta Santa Claus)" however.

"Santa Got Lost in Texas"?

Texas is a big place.

As for Slim, the worst dissing was in Mars Attacks. As I may have mentioned here, I'm a fan of Slim's work. I've seen him in person three times.

They're dissin' the Hof!!!

BTW, I'm a big Clancy Brothers fan. They shouldn't be on the list.

Bill Crider said...

The Clancy Bros Christmas album is great.

Oh Bill, I thought my husband was the only person who liked Slim Whitman in a non-ironic/non-campy/non-"Mars Attacks" way. Now I can let him know he's not alone when he sings along with "Una Paloma Blanca" or other Whitman classics.

Bill Crider said...

Your husband has good taste. I have a few Slim Whitman CDs, myself.

Christmas with Kazoo, Charo, and Colonel Sanders? What could be more entertaining than that!

I believe I've only heard a couple of the songs represented by this grouping of yuletide messes.

They're hassling the Hoff. They're not good neighbors to Nabors.

While I have no doubt that some of these albums are pretty bad in terms of content, it seems as though the people who came up with this list also included some people that they just didn't like or didn't see the point of. Cheap laughs.
