Most hated songs ever

Post by Darbyand »

Along with some mates I've been having a Fever Pitch moment and compiled a top ten of most hated songs ever. The results are below. Mine are the ones highlighted - full rationales available on request. :D

A clear "victory" for the Spin Doctors. In fairness we'd had this discussion some time ago and found a mutual loathing for that song so no surprise it should come up from all the lads involved.

So, what's your most hated song/s and why?

I'm not a fan of the 'power ballad' so pretty much anything by Celine Dion would go into my musical room 101, but especially 'my heart must go on'. A more god-awful dirge I've yet to hear.

Brian Adams 'everything I do' also has to go in there. Number 1 for about 6 years (well it felt like it), played in every lift, supermarket and department store in the country. Drove me up the wall. Whitney's 'I will always love you' falls into the same category.

How about Elton John's Diana remake of Candle in the wind. Populist sentimental shyte.

Lionel Richie's Hello isn't much better, especially the video :evil:

There you go - 5 songs to play in the lift to Hades. If any of those dare to lodge themselves in my brain this afternoon I'm holding you personally responsible Darbyand :twisted:

(I've ignored the obvious Agadoo, cheeky girls, orville etc novelty records.)

I don't know if uncsi and I would like the same stuff, but I find that hate list 100% spot on.

You have no taste Darbyand!

5 of your 10 songs are in my collection including Two Princes. I'll also defend American Pie. Only the Scorpions deserve trashing.

Anything by Blunt, Morrison, Dion, Houston and co
Horrific cover versions offence 1: All Saints, Under The Bridge
Horrific cover versions offence 2: Rod Stewart, Have I told you lately
Horrific cover versions offence 3: All Pop Factor wannabees being over earnest especially on sappy power ballads
Sappy power ballads - Final Countdown as prime example
Most songs by boy bands / girl bands
Most novelty songs, e.g. Crazy Frog
Elton John, Candle In The Wind (especially the Di remix)

Have to agree with many of those especially American Pie which would top my list. People, particularly of my parent's generation, like to think that it is so profound when really it is a load of sentimental nonsense. Maybe I am missing the metaphor but levees are supposed to be dry so it shouldn't be a surprise or a disappointment but then again it does rhyme with chevy. :roll:

Maybe controversial choices but how about throwing "The King Of Rock'n Roll" by Prefab Sprout and "Wonderwall" by Oasis into the mix? And perhaps an open goal, "She's So Lovely" by Scouting For Girls?

Achey Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus

Its just absolute tosh and I cannot see why it became a hit.

"I will always love you" by Whitney Houston . I just can't stand songs like that

Post by redrum »

this is difficult as times and tastes change ... for eg i hated tracy chapman when i first heard her a d now i think her music is v cool. similarly a couple of dolly parton tracks are actually not bad 8-)

since time is a precious resource i am going to go for 5 songs which seem to never end. of course that could include songs like stairway to heaven and alice's restaurant ... so adding the requirement of songs where the singer's head was so far under the sand / up their a$$ they genuinely thought they were pushing the boundaries of music.

my nominations therefore are

- bryan adams - the robin hood song
- witney houston - the bodygiard song (and fwiw cr@p cover version)
- celine dion - the titanic song
- lionel ritchie - hello
- elton john - the diana song

There's some godawful songs in there, darbyand, you and your friends clearly have good taste (at least in what not to like) - although I have to admit to having a slight soft spot for Three Princes. A few of mine, off the top of my head:

Kula Shaker - Tattva (though anything they did was bloody awful)
Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby, that one about the Kids On the Street never missing a beat - see above, actually
Free - All Right Now - loved by many, plodding pub rock to me
The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go? - the voice of a generation rhymes 'trouble' with 'double'
The Doors - Riders On The Storm - self-regarding twaddle
Green Day - was it called Boulevard of Broken Dreams? What an image, it's like Shakespeare innit?
Limp Bizkit - anything

The only thing worse than Toploader - Dancing in the moonlight was the remix that was released a year later that had a "here we go" after every second line.

I can't believe that some of the class songs are being trashed. Akon though, oh dear.

The worst for me was the "no no no" song that the Churchill dog keeps reminding me about.

I have to agree, the covers are the worst. Why did anyone tell Will Young that his version of "light my fire" was any good?

Perhaps Barry can arrange a crap songs world cup?

Talent wasting:

Razorlight - America. When their first album came out I thought they could become one of the greatest bands on the planet but this is just sickening tosh.

UB40/C.Hynde - I Got You. Chrissie how could you! I always have to end my Pretenders Greatest Hits album one track early. Most UB40 songs come close to this list especially Red Red Whine.

I've always thought that! But generally don't mind the song otherwise.

lalalalahalalalala
I wanna wanna wanna get get get what I want

One of my favourite songs of all time, (now I know what to hum when you are lining up that crucial 6 foot putt) :D

The song that really gets on my breasts is Chas & Dave - Rabbit - Rabbit. :evil:
