British pop group Wham!'s 1984 hit single "Last Christmas" was voted most annoying Christmas song in a poll in Bulgaria, beating Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas," organisers said Monday.

A total of 28,110 Bulgarians said the Wham! hit was the song they least wanted to hear this year in the ballot on the campaign's website www.nohohoho.org.

"Every song gets disgusting when you hear it for the 172,395th time," one voter, Bambi, commented.

"I think these songs are the reason for Christmas depressions and suicides," added another pollster, Yordan Stamenov.

Not everyone agreed.

"This campaign is imbecile. It is these songs that make Christmas," said another pollster, Sasho.

Despite the vote, the two picks were listed by the website www.gigwise.com as the most downloaded Christmas songs this year, judging by figures collected by OVI music store.
