Christmas is fast approaching and with it an abundance of cheesy songs to bop along to during this festive time of year. While we have the ‘classics’, from your standard carols to ‘Do they know it’s Christmas’, there are many cheesy videos and songs that must be experienced from every decade. Some you may recognise, others you may not, either way these corny Christmas picks are perfect for some festive fun!
Peruse below Jurys Inn’s selection of ‘Cheese-tastic Christmas Music’…
Artist: Elmo & Patsy
Title: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
Release Date: 1979
One of the silliest Christmas songs known to man, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” was a popular 70’s number, this video came later- either in the 80’s or 90’s, equally as weird!
Artist: Paul McCartney
Title: Wonderful Christmas Time Release
Classic song, pretty cheesy, but then what Christmas song isn’t? The video, on the other hand, is in league of its own- we’re not sure ‘weird’ covers it. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely an amusing one to watch!
Title: Last Christmas Release
This one falls under weird as well as cheesy. Madonna channels Marilyn Monroe in one of Christmas’ strangest videos. It all seems normal until the animated cartoon elephant…
Artist: John Mellencamp
Title: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Release Date: 1987 Embed
Who doesn’t want to hear a folk-rock version of this song? Got to love the cheesy 80’s dance moves, along with the white trainers and socks combo!
Artist: ‘N Sync
Title: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays
Release Date: 1998
The 90’s were overflowing with cheesy Christmas songs but this N Sync one is definitely a top choice - song, video, 90’s fashion, JT’s frosted tips- all a cheese-tastic treat.
Title: Sleigh Ride
Release Date: 1993
This hip-hop version of the classic carol is VERY 90’s, and as such, offers some serious cheddar factor. With dungarees, the 90’s ‘bop’, and overly large hoop earrings - this video has it all.
Artist: Mariah Carey
Title: All I want for Christmas
Release Date: 1994
This song and video had to be included, iconic and utterly cheesy, no Christmas is complete without listening to this number. Sing along, you know you want to… “All I want for Christmas is youuuuuuuuu!”
Artist: Billy Idol
Title: Jingle Bell Rock
Release Date: 2006
This one is just too funny and nearly off the cheese-factor scale. King of ‘Punk Rock’ Billy Idol is a legend…but this video has, ahem, moved in a different direction. Watch out for the facial expressions - hilarity may ensue. We still love you Billy.
Thinking of enjoying a concert this Christmas? With plenty of shows and concerts touring the UK, there is always an abundance of music to enjoy this time of year. With this in mind, did you know our Liverpool Hotel is less than a two-minute walk from the Echo Arena? Take a look at ‘What’s on’ to plan your next visit.
