1. Time for parties and celebration

    People dancing all night long

    Time for presents and exchanging kisses

    Time for singing Christmas songs

this trendy, deliberate omission of the consonants.

    Yes.
    "We" have a problem, and it's getting worse and worse.
    While searching for S.O.S. versions (ABBA song) I came across this one:

    Nice looking man, nice voice. What's the problem?

    Well, a lot of the lyrics (words) are only 70 or 80% of the real word.
    "I eally ty to work it ou, I wizz I understood"

    It's not about this song or this singer, because it's happening everywhere, especially the younger singers.
    Who started this trend, and what is it supposed to be? Some kind of faux-accent or faux-broken-English?
    Celtic? Irish?
    I don't know I'm just guessing.

    But I wish this trend would end, because it sounds very affected (especially when everybody does it) and ruins many great songs and voices.

    Marbles, yes. The first time I heard this way of singing I thought it was because of a tongue piercing.

    And how are the hip people going to cover Bon Jovi's "Always"?

    Oh-ways? Oh-u-o-o-wayzz?

    It's not an Irish thing. It's more that affected "I'm tortured" vocal. It's much more an American thing I think. It makes them sound apparently like serious musicians. Sia does it too, I can never understand what she's singing.
    I just wont listen to singers who sing like that. My ears just say no. It just sounds so affected and fake.

    I didn't realize that, I've always thought she had a special and unique timbre, rather than butchering the lyrics.

    Sounds good to me.

    And I don't mind the odd artist who likes to "enhance" their songs this way, it's just that it's becoming a whole new language.

    This is gorgeous, but it's supposed to be a Tom Odell sound, not everyone's sound.
