Could this really be the worst song of the season?
“The 179 Days Of Christmas” is a song that understands the evil of holiday music repetition and employs it to nuclear-grade effect over the course of just about 9 hours of increasingly grating good cheer.
Like the 12 Days it’s based on, the first recitation isn’t so bad. The simple beat, moving ever forward with a digital wood block, is goofy and fun. Everything’s all right. As the list of gifts goes on, though, the horror of the project at hand dawns on listeners. The structure of the song requires every verse to repeat, snowballing to greater and greater proportions until Cull and Ing are listing out the usual items—turtle doves, lords a leaping—alongside new presents, like “sticky Band-Aids,” “unpaid mob debts,” “people with a podcast,” and much more.
