Name one that you think is a terrible song and be honest.
Charlene- I've Never Been To Me
Barbie girl - Aqua.
I'll second that.
YouTube - barbie girl - aqua
Always hated this one...but when I found out it was about Jesus it became even more creepy to me!
YouTube - You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone
This one take some beating for being bad if that makes sense YouTube - The Birdie Song - The Tweets
Biz Markie - Just A Friend
YouTube - Biz Markie - Just A Friend
That song is SO classically awful. I just love it. Musical candy corn.
For me, it's really a tie between two singer/songwriters.
Rupert Holmes' Escape is dreadful on so many levels; Him isn't much better.
Christopher Cross is equally annoying to me. Sailing is like a long visit in the dentist's chair, but Ride Like the Wind is so ridiculously self-important for no good reason that it's horrid in its own separately craptastic way.
Honorable mentions must go to Feelings and Morning Train, which makes Sheena Easton seem to have an IQ no higher than 60. But they seem so fucking obvious.
I totally agree on "Morning Train"! I don't agree on "Escape" though (yeah I actually like that song... :redface
My worst song is "Girls" by the Beastie Boys, because of its sexism! Thankfully, the Beastie Boys themselves renounced the sexism of that song and no longer perform it. And I do like many of their other songs...
For just being annoying for no particular reason, except maybe just being too schmaltzy, I'd say that most songs by Bread are in that "worst" category. Unfortunately, when I was in college I was surrounded by a bunch of girls who REALLY LIKED Bread (and played it every day! And yes, I could hear it from their dorm rooms!), and hated MY music (I was into a mix of punk/new wave, and stuff you wouldn't normally associate with punkers/new wavers, like the Moody Blues. But go figure... I'm not easily classified into one little neat category!)
How dare you! The Biz was great.
The song that's making me want to scream (in the bad way) right now is this completely obscene and offensive piece of shit called UNDEAD by the "band" Hollywood Undead. Not only are the lyrics immature and offensive on so many levels, but the music is the horrible consequence of a band being influenced by Limp Bizkit and P.O.D.
Oh and here it is, if you want your day ruined:
Guys, come on...they all sound like soothing classical music compared to this........
Vanilla-No Way No way
Our tastes in music are very similar, ya know?
My sister (two years younger) **loved** Bread, and hearing it always reminds me of her being 11-12.
I found this playlist on YouTube. Not sure what's worse, the originals or the whiney covers.
I'm not sure how old you are, but there was a progress in my musical appreciation beginning in my teens that ran Glam/Psychedelic Moody Blues, Bowie, etc)=> Early Synth (ELP, Kraftwerk, ELO, etc) => Punk (Ramones, Patti Smith, etc). It was interrupted by Disco (76-79) and picked back up with early Psychedelic Furs and U2. From there, it could only go Hardcore (X, Circle Jerks, etc) mixed with Anything English (Siouxsie, Gang of Four). Very few people really liked my music, which suited me just fine.
That was indeed putrid. And the girls are all so...healthy.
It reminds me how this group of ersatz drag queens butchered one of my all-time faves. ARGH!
I saw a VH1 bit where Michael Ian Black says pretty much the same thing...then he follows that up with, "I happen to know that Debby Boone sang that song to God. I happen to know that God did not sing back....I happen to know God hates Debbie Boone."
Really? I loved that little ditty...best line evar: "Two at a time, I want GIRLS!"
Truly shaped the goals and aspirations of my little middle-school mind at the time.
My personal vote goes to the fucking Macarena. Whomever green-lighted that bit of shit should die in as slow and agonizingly painful a manner as imaginable.
Don't Worry, Be Happy. The video is very annoying too.
It's a tie for me:
Seasons In the Sun by Terry Jacks
Alone Again by Gilbert O'Sullivan
Both are about guys who commit suicide and, sadly, failed; and so lived to tell their dull, boring, and tedious stories.
Ironic - Alanis Morrisette
There are sooooo many I don't even know where to start!!!
YouTube - Jason Donovan - Too many broken hearts
Great video too
