    Why Michael Buble Is Totally Overrated

    It's an unpopular opinion, but hear me out!

    In October of 2011, Michael Buble released his album entitled "Christmas" and the holidays have never been the same since.

    This collection of crooning classics has taken the world by storm, but has anyone ever stopped to think about why?

    Well don't fret, because I did it for you. And I have come to the controversial conclusion that quite frankly, Buble is just a bit overrated.

    Now before you jump straight to the comments to yell at me, hear me out, I've got some solid evidence.

    1. The Gift-Ruining Cover

    2. Suspiciously Niche Specific

    3. He Can't Eat Corn

    4. His Arrangements Aren't Original

    Remember when you listened to Michael Buble's Christmas album and thought to yourself "wow, he makes the classics seem so fresh with these fun and unique new versions!" Well guess what, most of those "unique" arrangements are complete ripoffs of older artists who go unrecognized by most of Buble's fan base.

    For Example: Jingle Bells ft. The Puppini Sisters vs. Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby ft. The Andrew Sisters

    Much of the accompaniment as well as the backup singing is EXACTLY the same.

    Or how about: White Christmas with Shania Twain vs. White Christmas by The Drifters

    Hmm, sounds familiar...

    I mean, just listen to the ending of these ones:

    Really Michael, really??

    Alright Mike we get it, you're straight. But isn't this song a little excessive? He managed to take this cute, flirty number and turn it into the cringiest no-homo anthem anyone has ever heard. I encourage you to take a listen to this, and I challenge you to make it to the end without cringing at least 20 times.

    6. Naming Albums is Not His Forte

    I'm sorry, but could he really not come up with a better name for his album than "Christmas"? I mean, I understand simplicity and everything, but would a little bit of creativity have killed him??

    6. He Drops into TV Shows "For Fun"

    7. Defrosting

    8. Way too Canadian

    9. Part-Time Ginger?

    10. He's not a jazz musician!

    Sure he's a smooth talking, stubbly hunk of a family man, but you cannot and will not convince me that this "modern day crooner" qualifies as anything close to a jazz musician. His takes on Christmas classics are more or less exact replicas of works by artists such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, and his original tunes are just your standard boring pop songs. So riddle me this, why is he so widely recognized as a man that modernizes and popularizes the classic artistry of jazz music?

    And now to end you off on a good note, here's some more proof that Michael Buble has been farting on your Christmas presents:
