In Which We Highlight Novelty Songs (Good and Bad)

Look—you knew this was coming. Novelty songs. We’ve already posted a few and we’ll probably post a few more. But here’s a whole post dedicated to nothing but.

The Twelve Pains of Christmas – Bob Rivers

Rusty Chevrolet – Da Yoopers
By far my favorite from this post. Somehow, I never tire for this song—probably because it reminds me of numerous people and their cars in my hometown.

Grandma Got Runover By a Reindeer – Elmo and Patsy
Send them back!

Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas – Jeff Foxworthy
Here’s a bad one—unless you like Jeff Foxworthy. Is he smarter than a fifth grader?

The Christmas Shoes – Alabama
The ultimate manipulative song. This one is for PC who passionately hates this song. And so do I. Why Alabama? Why?

The Real Slim Santa –
Not kid friendly. Snagged this from The Late Greats. Check out some stellar Christmas mixes over there.

Horny Christmas – Loo and Placido
Also, not one for the kids. But that Dandy Warhols sample sure is great--actually, it's the entire Dandy Warhols song.

I Yust Go Nuts for Christmas – Yogi Yorgesson
A classic.
