Yesterday's Sweet 16 Competition hauled out the cacophony, but your choices were decisive. "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" handily defeated "Frosty the Snowman," "Feliz Navidad" eeked past "Little Drummer Boy," "Wonderful Christmas Time" pummeled "Merry Christmas Darling," and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" defeated "Hark the Herald Angels Sing."
Today's matchup is more important than all previous matchups combined, and I don't think I'm exaggerating at all when I say that the lives of all 8 reindeer are at stake. Who will move on to the Horrible Four?
"All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" vs. "Toyland"
This really boils down to laughing at speech impediments versus thinking that greed is precious and adorable.
"The Christmas Shoes" vs. "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
A childhood friend who saw an early version of the bracket remarked that, in his opinion, the real championship in this contest would come down to this very matchup, and how prescient his prediction was. Both of these songs have sailed past all of their competitors, and now, they smash into each other. In one corner, "The Christmas Shoes," the undisputed champion of sap-per-syllable. In the other, "Do They Know It's Christmas?" which might as well be called "Shit White People Sing." Ho ho oh, the humanity!
