If you were given the power to rid the world of one Christmas song and ensure that neither you nor future generations would have to endure hearing it ever again, which one would you send to Christmas Song Purgatory?

The question was posed recently to 93.1 KISS-FM listeners on Mornings with Mike & Iris and four songs notably stood out.

Wonderful Christmastime – Paul McCartney


The Paul McCartney penned track tends to enjoy substantial seasonal airplay and many are not OK with that.

Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney. It's like needles in the ears. Why Paul? Why?

Samantha Rubee Garcia
Instant headache just hearing it.

I love Paul McCartney but this song is just Eckkk!!

I'm guessing it gets dissed a lot because it was written by a former Beatle many consider one of the greatest songwriters of all time, but sounds like it took him all of 5 minutes to write, produce, and record.

Last Christmas – Wham!


Briana Alyssa Gallegos
The video creeps me out. The way he stares at her throughout

Em Ma La
The lyrics are just dumb

Norma M
Last Christmas... not very chrismassy

Hmmm, let's see:

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away

What’s more Christmassy than re-gifting?

Feliz Navidad – Jose Feliciano

RCA Victor
RCA Victor

Donna Garibay
When l was in Elementary school the song everybody used year after year was that one for Christmas recitals.

Luisa Silva
The song is so repetitive!

Elvia J
Feliz Navidad…it’s like the song that never ends

It clocks in at 3 minutes, but yeah. It’s nice when you know all the lyrics to a song, though.

All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey


I think we all knew this was going to be at the top of the list. Or is it the bottom?

It’s hard to get through the holiday season without hearing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” about a thousand times, and apparently the majority of listeners who replied would rather hear the three above on a loop than Mariah’s modern Christmas classic one more time.

Jessica Garcia
That song makes my ears bleed!

M Olivares Abney
All that screeching!

Natalie Z.
Gets. On. My. Nerves

I guess I'm in the minority because when it comes on, I'm cranking it up to "11". I will not be shamed. It's one of a handful of Christmas songs I look forward to playing every year.

But clearly, your Mariah mileage may vary.
