I don’t mind sweet Caroline but hate that it’s been taken over by the young team of our support with “ new lyrich”

My vote goes  to Cher and that truly awful, teeth-grinding, ear-aching, vomit-inducing Do You Believe.   

 

A wierdo and his wierdo teenage sons lived in the flat below me 20 years ago and they  regularly played that abomination on repeat (high volume).     I  don't remember hating a song as much prior to being subjected to that awful auto-tune voice vibrating up through the floor and walls.     😱

When I was growing up I hated Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen including the video. Dire Straights Money for Nothing sounded like how you would feel if you bought the record. Not really a song but Fatboy Slim's Right Here Right Now really annoys me when it is played at the start of anything sports related or anywhere for that matter. Tell me what I want by The Spice Girls and all those Stock, Aitken and Waterman hits with exactly the same drum beat, yuk!

Everybody Hurts by REM is just so depressing. Anything by that Captain or major in the army guy, who was popular a few years ago. A song called Lemon Tree, which was being played absolutely everywhere when I was on holiday in Goa then Thailand many years ago.

I heard some lassie on the radio this morning singing "I Would Walk 500 Miles" just sang it slowly with an acoustic guitar, the most lazy and cringing and embarrassing thing I think I've ever heard.

Assume you're referring to James Blunt, which aptly describes (in rhyming slang) what he made of popular music for a few years. :whistling:

I remember him and the female version of him, Dido. What a low point in music history that period was!

Good shout there    I'd forgotten about her.    It's just very odd how the media go wild over  folk like Dido, Blunt and now Sheeran,  Capaldi, Tom Walker, George Ezra  etc -  despite them churning out utter playground-level  drivel.    I have a friend who reckons musicians like those are actually deliberately taking the p1ss to see how much money they can make before some influential person shouts "Enough ... this is b*ll*cks).    Similar to the emperors new clothes.

Unfortunately there are too many unimaginative music buyers out there to stop these type of acts springing up all over the place. It is certain though the charity shops will be full of their albums in no time at all.

😂 That’s him. Every wedding and funeral I was at for about 5 years had that song played. Absolutely hated it from the first time I heard it.

Mostly based on my dislike of Dionne Warwick. I looked up his songs and literally one song I liked from the shirelles. Nothing logical, just don’t like lounge music.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw The Commitments. Had read a few Roddy Doyle books but not that one. After all the hype I finally got round to watching it and it was a massive disappointment. The sort of film that is passable on a boring Sunday afternoon.

Aye his music is utter shite but any time Ive seen him or read about something he's done he always seems up for a laugh at his music and very self effacing. I reckon he'd be alright to have a pint with.

 

Plus didnt he also personally stop WWIII when with the Cavalry in the Balkans?

He refused an order by a US General to attack Russian troops. Apparently. He welcomed a court martial if need be.

His music is crap but he’s self- deprecating and seems a good sort. He did a very touching tribute to Keith Flint after he died. 
 

Too many songs to list that I can’t stand but anything by Coldplay, The Kooks and all that bland 00’s landfill indie shite is so beige it hurts my ears. The Proclaimers, Runrig, Biffy Clyro, The View and any old shite that people only seem to like because they’re Scottish are another load of pish. On the plus side, there’s tons of great music out there so I can inoculate myself from all of that.

Annies Song by John Denver and Until its time for you to go by Buffe St Marie. Saccharin nonsense.

Flower of Scotland is a racist dirge. Not much time for the Hearts song either. Or Hearts of Glory  - another dirge.

Unchained Melody. A little bit of me dies whenever I hear the opening bars of it. Awful, never ending dirge.

 

Novelty songs are meant to be shite or annoying and don't bother me but songs that are meant to be serious but are shite is another matter. 

 

I'd suggest "The War Song" by Culture Club as the worst. Came out in 1984 on the back of "Two Tribes" and other such anti war pop songs that year. I remember being stunned into silence as Boy George prance around on TOTP's singing:

 

"War, war is stupid, 

And people are stupid...". 

 

The hits dried up after that monstrosity.

Only found out recently that this was a cover. The original is, naturally, much better...

Good info:thumbsup: I didn't know it was a cover either.

Listening to that the original had an authentic soul feel to it but Yazz totally turned the cover into a cheese fest.

 I remember a while ago lying in bed with headphones on listening to the radio and this came on. I had my youngest daughter cuddling into me and she was sleeping and looked like an angel. That song just summed up that moment so perfectly and I felt like greeting. What a soppy old git I have become.
