The Little Drummer Boy is not a good song
When half the lyrics are “A Rumpa Pum Pum,” you may have written a bad song.

Meh. Works for me. One of my favorite Christmas songs.

I respect your right to be wrong about the song, though.

I actually still like it. Yeah nostalgia, but we were all 10 once, right?

I think you are failing to appreciate the lyrical rhythm, symbology and imagery of Rum pa pa pum with an actual drum.

It's easily a bottom 5 Christmas song.

Feel Good Hit of the Summer has way fewer lyrics and is a great song. Poor hot take.

O Come Ye Merry Gentlemen is supreme, but The Little Drummer Boy is still a top-tier Christmas song.

Joan Jett did great version of the Little Drummer Boy on her Bad Reputation Album.

If that's your takeaway you have completely missed the point of the song.

I mean it’s no O holy night, christmas (baby please come home), or have yourself a merry little Christmas, but I don’t mind it.

re: The Little Drummer Boy is not a good song
It’s too damned long and repetitive.

It’s like the Whipping Post of Christmas songs. It’s a nice tune, but cut it in half and make it better.
