Songs You Can't Stand

    Yeah, we have similar threads for songs we're listening to right now, we can't get out of our heads, etc... but are there any songs out there you just absolutely cannot stand whenever you hear it on the radio, or in a public place, at played at a party, etc? For me, I have a list of top three songs I cannot stand:

    1. "Physical" by Oliva Newton-John
    Ugh! I love the 80s, but really, this song is rully annoying, and I'm told he MV was just as annoying as the song itself, which I haven't seen, but I believe it.

    2. "I Wanna Know What Love Is" by Foreigner
    I'm not even a really big Foreigner fan anyway, but what irks me about this song is it sounds like the group is basically shouting the chorus rather than singing it, I mean is this supposed to be a love song, or primal scream therapy?

    3. "Brown-Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison
    Ehh... you know, there's just some songs that maybe enjoyable at first, but the more you hear it over and over and over again it drives you nuts, and this song has reached that point for me, I got so sick of it that now whenever I hear it, it drives me nuts.

    Well yeah that was the style back then, I like it personally, lol.

    Here I agree with you, I have never liked this song. It just never grabbed me at all and therefore it feels like it goes on forever, lol.

    The part where they say "skippin' an a Jomphin'" just drives me nuts for some reason, as does the "ADIP dop dopp blip bplop a dudduadop..." at the end.

    I really don't like that "Take a Load of Flannbny" song by The Band. Like I said, sounds like the guys who sung that lost their tongues.

    "The Christmas Shoes."

    Oh, wait, sorry, you said "songs you can't stand," not "songs that make you tear out all your hair and scream at the top of your lungs in pure hatred."

    The last time you mentioned that, I was half-expecting to see Mushmouth singing that song in your dA gallery. :p

    That would be "I love You, You love me" by Barney.

    I really can't stand the song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". It's just a really annoying song in my opinion.

    Definitely not. I mean I know it sounds awful, but every time I hear that song I keep thinking, "Kid, go home and be with your mother, stop worrying about the freakin shoes!" Lol

    Not just that - I think it's absolutely ridiculous that a guy who walks around without shoes would be so specific about people's footwear upon entry to Heaven.

    I liked that American Idol spoof on the Shrek 2 DVD where the Ugly Stepsister (voiced by Larry King) attempted to sing that song, THAT was hilarious, but yeah, not too crazy about theactual song, and surprisingly (at least Drtooth might think so), I didn't care for when The Chipettes covered it either.
  13. heralde

    heralde Well-Known Member

    Lol, that too. I mean I know it's about a little kid, but I would have said, "Kid, Mommy does not need nice shoes to get into Heaven! Who is teaching you this stuff?!" I mean seriously! Lol

    Actually I hate to admit it, but you know what I said about how I've come to dislike "Brown-Eyed Girl"? I'm afraid the Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder duet "Ebony and Ivory" falls into that same categoryfor me as well.

    What??? Come on, how could you hate that song? It's wonderful!

    A personal least favorite song of mine is "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, because it appears as if I cannot go to any event on my campus, be it sporting event or party, without hearing it. Plus, nobody really "waves their hands up in the air sometimes". You'd look really silly doing that.
  17. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Again, it's fallen into that category where when you hear it over and over and over and over and over again, you just get sick of it, and that's what's happened, I've heard it over and over and over and over and over again, and I've gotten sick of it.

    I'm close to feeling the same about "Break Even" by The Script because for a period there like earlier int he year or so, one of our local radio stations literally played that song every single day.

    I think everyone pretty much covered it. Heck with the shoes, man! Go home to your dying mother and hold her hand. Sweet gesture nothing...

    I could go on and on about terrible Christmas songs... hate the Elton John one (and I like Elton John to an extent)... I have no idea what it's called but the full actual version of the song "Happy Holidays... may the calender keep bringing Happy Holidays to you..." (the Muppet Family Christmas one THANKFULLY cuts out before the terrible rest of the song)... 85% of the half donkeyed versions of the Christmas Song (only a few have mastered it)... uh... there's a certain cover of Sleigh Ride and Let it Snow I can't take... I mean, I'm not a huge Christmas music fan.

    Conversely, the one Christmas Song I can't stand NOT listening to is Snoopy and the Red Baron. I go NUTS waiting for them to play that every year... I have to sit through all those lemon songs they make to sell bad albums and pump into stores so you can keep buying garbage, only for them to play it like once, I miss it, and never hear it played again. That's the ONLY song that puts me in the Christmas mood!

    Exactly, case closed, lol.

    I just heard that for the first time on Pandora the other day. Very cool!
