tweeny boppers & christmas songs. yikes.

I love Christmas music in a way that is almost unnatural. I am a Christmas-Music-All-Year-Long type of girl, which bothers roommates and loved ones when they hear Boyz II Men belting out their love for Jesus and snow in July. I was preparing a blog post on transformation scenes in tween movies, but then I discovered something so terrifying, so plain wrong, that I had to share. It even dampened my love for Christmas music, so that’s really saying something.

I don’t know what possessed me but I Googled “tweens singing Christmas songs.” The first one wasn’t terrible. Well, okay, it’s pretty bad but she has such a bedazzling guitar that I was distracted (major points if you can watch this for longer than 30 seconds):

But then disaster struck. I knew clicking on youtube links would eventually kill me because this is what I found:

And so much of who I am shriveled up and died. Who does Miley think she is? I mean, there is only one person who could ever touch this song. And that is Mariah. Watch this Miley, and be shamed:

I mean, you can’t compete with that. Nice try, Smiley.

    Smiley sounds like she belongs with Alvin and the Chipmunks. I don't know what possessed me to click on Taylor Swift…I already know I don't like her voice. But I didn't last 30 seconds.

  2. says

    28 seconds.

    And Mariah Carey's opening sequence may have given me goosebumps. (And the gingerbread men! They dance!)

    Thanks Ms. Narwhal, dear.

    Longest record so far…1:15. I kept listening to see if it was going to go somewhere.

    It's true — you can't touch Mariah's performance of that song. It's classic.

    wow nice. I don't think I could have even thought of the sentence "tweens singing Christmas songs"

    I now feel more Christmasy though, after having watched these.

    I made it almost two minutes, but mostly because I was trying to figure out what was up with the melody she was singing. Sometimes you just shouldn't mess with a good thing.

    Also… what was Miley thinking?! I totally do not approve. But thanks for ending on a good note with Mariah. It wouldn't be Christmas without her.
