22 Most Awkward Celebrity Christmas Albums of All Time
Cyndi Lauper – Merry Christmas… Have a Nice Life
Sometimes Cyndi makes us laugh and sometimes she makes us cry; but we cringed when we heard her track “Christmas Conga” on her 1998 holiday album. “Bonga, bonga bonga, do the Christmas conga!” sang no Christmas caroller ever.
Cee Lo – Cee Lo’s Magic Moment
Forget a reindeer pulled sleigh; Cee Lo’s preferred method of holiday transportation is a pimped out car pulled by magical flying white horses according to the cover of his 2012 Christmas album. Your life isn’t complete until you hear him put his R&B spin on the usually solemn, “Mary Did You Know?” or Joni Mitchell’s “The River.”
Elvis Presley and Guests – Christmas Duets
Don’t get us wrong, we love the King and “Blue Christmas” is one of our favourite seasonal songs. But was it really necessary to ruin his existing work by releasing an album of posthumous duets? We don’t doubt that Elvis would have been down to share the mic with the likes of Martina McBride and LeeAnn Rimes, but it’s still nice to ask first, isn’t it?
