This Year’s Christmas Pop Songs Are Trying Very Hard to Become Classics

Debbie Gibson and Joey McIntyre - “Heartbreak Holiday”

previous arrow next arrow

Did you know that Debbie Gibson’s newly released Christmas album is called Winterlicious? Saucy! This ballad about not being with the one you love on Christmas is more winterpressive than -licious, though. (Points subtracted for rhyming “Heartbreak holiday” with “cold as winter’s day”—in the chorus, no less!)

Classic chances: 50 to 1
