WORST SONG EVER  Reply with quote  

OK, so there are a lot of songs that I hate
(one of which was featured in a musical birthday card that my smart-ass friends gave me last night)
but I'm curious about which ones you guys think are the worst ever.

So think about it for a minute...
Is there a song you despised the first time you heard it
& not only never had it grow on you,
but hated it more every time you were forced to hear it yet again?

I'll start this off with the first song I remember hating from the moment it came out:

"LOVING YOU"- MINNIE RIPPERTON
& if I'm misspelling her name, I don't care...

If you're not familiar with this hideous song, it was featured on an early episode of SOUTH PARK-
the one with the gay dog, if I remember correctly.

It is a textbook example of the kind of "music" I hate-
whiny, high-pitched chick singing slow, boring song.
It makes me want to choke somebody,
preferably whoever had the gall to play that odious attempt at music.

OK, your turn...

I hate that song "Lips of an Angel." I never bothered to learn who wrote/sings it. I affectionately refer to it as "Song with Lyrics so Dumb my Seven Year Old Sister Could Have Written It."


And is it snobby and elitist when I say that I feel like my opinions in this matter deserve some respect because I spent four years earning a degree in music that I will never use except when giving snobby opinions?

You Light Up My Life by Debbie Boone

For awhile, but thankfully not recently, this song played constantly, and nearly drove me insane. CRAPPY & SAPPY...yuch!

(yeah, I know, I'm dating myself... Laughing )

It lacks any interest musically, as well...

Fergalicious.

My friend had it in her iPod and I told her "You are not my friend if you like that song!" Then I realized what I said and had to pretend I was kidding.

*waiting for Joe to make you a dating offer*

I figured it wouldn't take long for somebody to mention that piece of crap-
it's called an OLDIE FROM HELL!
*shudder, shudder, shudder*

They play way too much of the worst of the 70s every Saturday night at Shoney's-
that's actually why I started the thread.
I've been so busy playing music critic every week that
I thought I might as well find out what the rest of you hate.
I knew I couldn't be the only one cringing on a regular basis.

Besides, some of the wimps out there can't handle the sex talk-
you all know who you are, I'll address the issue at length later- if I feel like it.


Another song that I haven't heard as much of, but truly hate is "BABY I LIED"-
don't know who did the song, but it's yet another bit of dreck that my ex forced on me.
I've mentioned it elsewhere, but I hate it enough to repeat myself.

Okay, here is a new song that just makes me shake my head.

Avril Levigne - Girlfriend

Hey hey you you I don't like your girlfriend
no way no way I think you need a new one
hey hey you you I could be your girlfriend

You're so fine
I want you mine
You're so delicious
I think about ya all the time
You're so addictive
Don't you know what I could do to make you feel alright?
Don't pretend I think you know I'm damn precious
And hell yeah
I'm the mother fuckin' princess
I can tell you like me too and you know I'm right

She's like so whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
And that's what everyone's talking about

Dumb. And it's a HUGE hit right now. HUH??

Hated song  Reply with quote  

"Party Like a Rock Star" and every fucking time I hear it (which around here is approximately once every 45 minutes) I can't it out of my head.

Thanks so much, Zen, for making me think of this.

I was gonna say Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen, which is without question my least favorite rock song, ever. It has spoiled the 4th of July for me, because they ALWAYS play it at the fireworks display at the high school, which is otherwise excellent.

But as I began to type my entry here, something came burning through my synapses. Something I had forgotten about completely. And now it's stuck in my head, and I think I'm going to go blow my head off now. I believe the song is called That's My Job. I have no clue who does it, and I don't want to know. It was a country hit 10 or 15 years ago. I HATE country. It is my least favortite genre of music.

In case you can't place the song, let me describe it for you, so that you can wallow in the same misery I am experiencing now. It starts off with a young man leaving his home town for the big city, where he falls flat on his ass and comes crawling back home. I can't remember any of the lyrics except in the part just before the chorus, he whines "Oh, Daddy" and tells about how he fucked up and can he please come back home and can his daddy please get him out of the shit he got himself into. And then the chorus...

That's my job
That's what i do
Everything I do is because of you

Ok, I know it's supposed to be a touching song, and that I'm supposed to feel sorry for the poor redneck sonofabitch, and be touched by his daddy taking him back in. I don't give a fuck. I fucking hate this song.

Excuse me, I have to go vomit.

Worst song of all time? "MacArthur Park", beyond a shadow of a doubt. It's melting in the dark, all the sweet green icing flowing down. Someone left the cake out in the rain! I don't think that I can take it, 'cause it took too long to bake it, and I lost the fucking recipe.

"Red Rubber Ball" and "Seasons In The Sun" are top contenders

Hero - Enrique Inglesias.

If I ever hear that song again, I will punch someone or something.

Agreed. "Oh how can I stay faithful to my girlfriend when her friend is so slutty and hot. Oh boohoo. I'm an assmonkey and no woman should feel sorry for me, but if I sing like this and make it sound like they're the slutty hot friend then they will all sleep with me."

What I really can't stand to hear regardless of lyrical content. The chorus grates on my nerves:

Quote:
Chorus:
I feel so alive
For the very first time (for the very first time)
I can't deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive
For the very first time
And I think I can fly (fly)


Why do they echo a whole line, and why do they sing the echo? ARGH MAKE IT STOP!!
