Eliminate These Songs From Your Christmas Playlist ASAP

Thanksgiving Is Over, Which Means You Can Finally Listen To Christmas Music...Except For These 7 Songs

The WORST Christmas songs

Cooper Watt

Unless you are one of those crazy Christmas starts after Halloween people, it is now socially acceptable to blast Christmas music. However, for every Frank Sinatra rendition of "Jingle Bells" or N'Synch Christmas album, there are terrible songs to match them. Here is a definitive guide of seven songs to never play this holiday season.

1. "Baby It's Cold Outside"

Baby, it's cold outside, but it sure feels like date rape on the inside. This song is very creepy before she even says "what's in this drink?" Give it a good listen and realize why you should skip this duet when you are putting together your playlist.

2. "Last Christmas" by Wham

I'm sorry, but some popular songs just suck. The last thing I want to hear about when I'm decorating my tree is some Christmas heartache. There is no need for breakup music at Christmas time, especially a song as annoying as this one.

3. "The Christmas Song" by Justin Bieber

Listen, if you want to bump "Mistletoe" you can go right ahead, but do not play Bieber's rendition of "The Christmas Song" at your holiday party. Some carols are owned by one person, and this song belongs to Nat King Cole. I don't even listen to the Buble version of this, let alone the one from the Biebs.

4. "Santa Baby" by Ariana Grande

Get your weird, thirsty Santa fantasies out of my nice and innocent holiday spirit. I really don't need to hear any version of this song but Ariana Grande whining to "Santa Honey" about wanting a yacht particularly grinds my gears. There's plenty of other classics to pick over this dreck.

5. "Christmas Tree" by Lady Gaga

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga said screw the semblance of subtlety in "Santa Baby" and released this disaster. She manages to ruin a couple of different classics with the beat and tops it off by referring to what makes her a woman as her "Christmas Tree." It's a shame she and Bradley Cooper didn't record a Christmas song in "A Star is Born" to replace this crap.

6. "The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong

Excuse me while I cry in front of my Christmas tree as I hear about this little boy trying to get his dying mother a pair of shoes for Christmas so she can look good if she meets Jesus that night. Alexa, please skip and play "Sleigh Ride" by the Ronettes. Ahhhhh, much better vibes.

7. "Deck the Halls" by Jake Paul

This song goes, "Deck the tree with yellow diamonds. Bling bling bling bling blaow ba bling blaow burrh." Enough said.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.

Books are the perfect summer companions.

If I'm going to be working from home, it's got to be glam.

I'll be honest, I've never been too big into modern pop culture — I'll take "Citizen Kane" or a movie starring Humphrey Bogart over Brad Pitt any day. But I've watched just about every architecture, interior decorating, and home documentary available on the Internet. I lust after a luxurious pool, backsplash, or mountain view as though the more I watch, the more I can manifest my streaming fantasies into a future reality.

Seeing the beautiful homes is one of the reasons I watch The Real Housewives of New York and Beverly Hills. While the women throw drinks in each other's faces, I'm eyeing the Charlotte Perriand lounger behind them. When someone drunkenly falls into a pool, my focus is mostly on the marble finishes lining it.
