It's radio stations that play the same 30 songs overandoverandoverandoverandoverandoverandover that has made me absolutely sick of most, but not all holiday songs. "Wonderful Christmastime" just because it's a horrible song.

That “All I Want For Christmas Is You” drives me crazy. It has been done to death in my opinion. 🤭

13 out of 13. I sang this around Christmas time last year at karaoke, and I may just do it again this year!

Got 12/13. One of my favorite Christmas songs along with Greg Lake's "I Believe In Father Christmas". Which these damn radio stations NEVER play anymore. Instead I'm subjected to Pariah (no typo) Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" song to which I quickly change the station. I got the last one, #13 wrong. I thought the answer was "house".

There is a radio station that went to an all Xmas song playlist just before Thanksgiving. It seems they just play the same twenty songs over and over.

Just curious--where are you? We have a station in the Detroit area that does that, too..at least I think they still do it. Usually they have ads all over TV talking about it, but I haven't seen one this year. Don't think I saw one last year either, come to think of it.

I just commented on that Mariah song. It needs to go away.

12 of 13. I played the whole song in my head throughout the quiz! I only goofed on #10. I answered "lightning" instead of "frightening". I always liked the Beach Boys Christmas Album at the Holidays. Their vocal harmony was really great on the other songs and classics!

Love the Beach Boys, have seen them several times in concert. Got the Xmas CD at a thrift store. It's OK.

"You got 6 out of 13" ---------"Christmas comes this time each year" but you can listen to "Little Saint Nick" anytime you want, no matter if you know the lyrics or not! ----I got 1, 7, 8, 10, 12, and 13 correct!

Well, Z would have to be ZZ Top...and wasn't there a British group in the sixties or seventies called Uriah Heep?
