Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer

This guilty pleasure was suggested by so many people who ought to know better that I just gave up and included it in the compilation. Novelty songs aren’t trying to be anything except a guilty pleasure. The people who made the records are in on the joke, but vox populi, baby.

The song started in 1979 in a San Francisco radio stage, which makes you wonder about the whole Nancy-Pelosi-blue-state scare campaign. By some reports this is the most requested Christmas song. As Scrooge said, “I’ll retire to Bedlam.” Significantly, the canonical Randy’s Rodeo doesn’t even mention the darnded thing.

If you can stand it, a Spongebob video can be found here
