"Chariots of Fire" might make my list after the Olympics are over. I know it's iconic, but really...
Paper planes by MIA
M.I.A. is a poseur. She was recently quoted saying she didn't want to work with any "fame w***e" producers on her next album, yet just did a song with Madonna and Nicki Minaj. Plus she once publicly tweeted the phone number of a reporter who did an unfavorable piece on her, which isn't very nice.
And her music stinks too.
Oh and let's not forget the dreaded "Call Me Maybe." The song played 4 TIMES on the radio on my way home from my aunt's house today! 4 TIMES!!!!! And what was worse was when my little sister was singing along to it. I wanted to kill myself!
I'm starting to think my mother is having something of a mid-life crisis, because she LOVES these current pop tunes that would normally only appeal to pre-teen girls whose tastes in music hasn't had a chance to really develop yet. "Call Me Maybe", "Somebody That I Used to Know", just about every original song from Glee...
My new least favorite song is Good Time by noted death metal vocalist Adam Young of Owl City and Canadian chanteuse Carly Rae Jepsen. I heard it while watching ESPN this morning (!) and then twice on the radio today while going shopping with my cousins. It sounds like something that was written to be used in a Beaches resort commercial.
TELL me about it! And everyone and their everyone else has to do a moronic Youtube music video for it, like that terrible Tik Tok song from Kei$hia (though I liked the Simpsons version). I refuse to even watch the Sesame Street parodies of it. And there are 2. 2!!
Oi vey...... You should be lucky you didn't have to hear that song four times in one day.
It's impossible not to.
All these returning shows in the fall are going to reference that song (Glee, obviously) and they're going to be dated when they do so.
That moronic new Eurosynthpop song from some no-namer, the one used by Bing commercials. For some ungodly reason the station I usually listen to, which is HARD rock, has been playing it in heavy roatation. Not only is it musically bland as Wonderbread, but a listen at the lyrics convinced me this guy is a total loser. "Ah, honey, I'm such a commitment-phobe that I'll feel better about myself if we break up, but ya know I still love you" kind of crap. Really? This is MUSIC?
You called it.
Shoot me now. I'm serious, shoot me, stab me, poison me, hang me, electrocute me, empale me, ANYTHING, just KILL me, PLEASE!
That's my cue!
Songs I hate? Almost any current popular pop song. I'm more of a 70's or 80's rock kinda guy.
Songs I can't stand? Wow, there are always a lot of songs we listen to. To be honest, I cannot standf any current songs that make me go crazy. Ugh! I love all kinds of music except current songs that not from my favorite artists. Seriously!
i hate every barney song ever
I naturally love music, but there's one song I absolutely HATE with my life! Gangham Style! It tries too hard to be the Macarena of my generation. This was the point where I lost all hope in current music. I'm going to be REALLY MAD if it's the Song of the Year.
I couldn't agree more.
I didn't need to call it. That's what Glee does. It takes whatever song possible and ruins it. The show is going to fad fast, believe you me.
Listen... Gangam style was never meant to be a world wide musical hit. It was supposed to be an internet meme. If anything, it's the musical equivalent of the "The Man your Man could Smell like" and it got too popular in the mainstream (months after being funny). Macarana for the next generation? No. The song is a deliberate joke. It was intended as one from its inception. It got popular through the internetz because weird stuff makes the internet. Weird stuff and porn, but let's not go there. Personally, I'm surprised the meme spread to the mainstream that fast. It took them over a year to get "Rick Roll" and put it into the Macy's parade...
Made awesome ONLY by the inclusion of the Fosters characters. Heck, Family Guy didn't do Trollolo until 3 years after everyone stopped caring. That's what the mainstream media does when something happens on teh internetz.
So to repeat, it was never meant to be a pop hit classic. It's a meme ruined by the mainstream. And frankly, it's no where near as bad as half the crap calling itself pop in this country.
