Songs you hate and why

With working from home since March (and hospitalisation) I have been listening to Radio 6. However at least 3 or 4 times in my working day I've noticed they insist on playing Televised Mind by Fontaine DC. I've heard it that often, I now switch off when it is played. Hate it even, it's not even that good a song. 

I quite like that song in comparison to their earlier stuff, which was just typical Steve Lamacq approved Indie.

My most hated song of all time is Dancing In The Moonlight by Toploader but then that is just clearly sh1te.

American Pie by Don McLean also grinds my gears, possibly from having mates who played it loads when I was

younger and it being seen as an accepted classic,  when it's just an irritating extended piece of absolute w*nk.

Also, the Grease mega mix as a nadir of school discos (even worse than Black Lace).

I don't completely hate this as they're my favourite band but Jetstream by New Order is awful, was embarrassing watching them hawk that around TV shows as a single and I still find it pretty much unlistenable.

I'm with you on that one. Cannot abide them. Never could.

 

It doesn't help that people down here assume that,  being Scottish, "500 miles" must be my favourite song.

 

Then they say... but what about the harmonies?  Screw that... if I want harmonies,  I'll listen to  the Evs. 

 

As far as I'm concerned,  there's only one pair of Reid siblings worth bothering about.

Don't actually mind The Proclaimers that much: there are and have been a lot worse than them kicking around. (That doesn't mean they're not ugly, speccy, dwarf-shaggin', h1b5 erseholes though!)

Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall or any other song that seems to have a children's choir in it!

I like the song but I agree with you 100% about the children’s choir verse I hate that bit as well.

I'll give you Deacon Blue, Starship and Bon Jovi, they are utter shite, but the Final Countdown has one of the finest guitar solos ever.

Never Forget is a classic. The choir input works well.

I was struggling to come up with songs I hated and then Kate Bush came on the radio, her voice just goes right through me. 

 

Also associate her with a female that I parted very un-amicably with.

Both versions

 

Don't know why, just rips my knitting

 

Guns and Roses version is actually not bad. Imo of course.

 

Also I think Come on Eileen (mentioned earlier) is alright, maybe because it's a song which has stuck in my mind since I was 8 years old or there abouts.

Super Trouper by ABBA. Now, whilst never a fan, you can't say that ABBA didn't make decent 3 minute pop songs and a couple, Lay All Your Love On Me and The Day Before You Came are excellent tunes. Super Trouper though, is absolute shite, Room 101 for that pile of steaming excrement.

Anything by Pink - utter shite, just a noise. 
 

Can’t put Forth 1 on in the car because they play Pink about every 20 minutes all day every day. Should be called Pink 1 FM.

Sweet Child of Mine by Guns n Roses makes me want to punch myself in the face. It just seems to have that effect on me. 

 

Pretty much anything by Coldplay is awful. 

 

If you wanted to torture someone, I think playing Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader, maybe 3 times, would be enough for them to break. 

 

Everything is changing by that wank band Keane? 🤔 Horrible. 

 

Pretty much anything played on Heart Radio.

Working in a supermarket, all I hear every day is a constant mix of vanilla, beige, namby pamby, shite that appeals to either, hipster wankfaces or people born before 1960. So here’s a selection...

 

Perfect by Ed Sheeran, weepy shite that actually sends me into a deep, hateful ****ing rage. If it wasn’t bad enough to hear it once, there’s a duet with Beyoncé (double rage) that gives the ****ers the right to think they can play it again as it’s a different song. If both versions are out the way early enough into my 8 hour shift, I can get lucky enough to have yet another listen.

 

Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry

Wow by Kylie Minogue

Senorita by Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello

The rest of Shawn Mendes’ discography

Anything by the Beach Boys with a special mention for Good Vibrations

 

Luckily the evil overlords don’t seem to have discovered Coldplay, so that’s something.

 

Apart from that: most Calvin Harris songs, anything by the Beatles as a band or collective that isn’t Hey Jude, anything by ABBA, Mr ****ing Blue Sky and I’m sure many more that I’ve tried to block out.

 

Oh and someone mentioned Mr Brightside by the Killers, that one can gtf as well

Yep, well even though I'm nearly as old as her, that makes me feel even older than I am, or than I feel (if that makes sense, which it probably doesn't...   :ermm: ). Anyway, absolutely would've then, and I daresay still would now.   :thumbsup:

+1 for any of these so called "singer songwriters" who are glorified buskers with songs that all sound the same.

 

I used to think these people got booked as support acts at gigs because they only had to plug in their acoustic guitar.

 

The only conclusion I have is that these people have no mates and can't form a proper band.
