You Picked It, We Sang It: Patch Editors Perform Readers' Choice of Worst Holiday Song

Last week, we asked Patch readers which holiday song drives them the craziest. They gave us their answer and we performed it.

Beating out such Christmas "classics" as Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, Wonderful Christmastime and I Farted on Santa's Lap, the Wham! song Last Christmas was for the absolute worst, most annoying holiday song there is.

So of course, we had to sing it for you.

Performing from in Tinley Park, your local Patch editors, aka 'Outta Sync, aka The Rhythmless Nation, aka Dennis' Menaces, bring you George Michael's classic tale of love, loss and awesome '80s hair.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

(although we're done singing).

Ryan was cameramanning during the song. The real question is why did Carrie, Lorraine, Dennis and the rest chicken out. (Chicago Heights Patch Editor Chris Paicely has the best excuse; his wife was giving birth to their new son.)

Yeah—what Paul said.

I think those who chickened out should gather and perform the song that came in second...?

I think there may be a Maryland Patch region who might want to challenge you to a sing off next year. Doug Donovan, what do you think?

Adorable. This is, in fact, the most annoying Christmas song ever. I had it stuck in my head all season, but didn't realize it was from the '80s!
