At a trivia game on Monday I heard a clip of "New Age Girl" and the damn thing kept popping back into my head off and on all day yesterday.

I got kicked out of the "It's a small world" ride at Disney World once with like 10 of my friends.  It was our high school graduation trip... they told our HS to never come back.

we learned, well, some of us did. "A" for effort anyway, white people

I feel like telling this guy he's white would cause him to have a moment sort of akin to Richard Pryor in that movie where he was blind and Gene Wilder was deaf.

God Is My Co-Pirate: SIIIIIMPLY HAAAAAVING A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIME!


That is the worst song ever by a mainstream musician/band in the history of recorded music, bar none.

It invalidates Paul McCartney's entire solo career, and very nearly invalidates the entire Beatles catalog by association.

It is impossible to take Paul McCartney seriously either as a musician or a human being after listening to that song.

I NEVER want to hear any those shiatty songs ever again. I don't know what it is about those songs, but they grate the hell out of my nerves. It's not that they're bad songs, they just piss me off every time they come on the radio or whatever.

I've managed to go two Christmases in a row without hearing that song, a feat akin to Johnny Vandermeer pitching consecutive no-hitters in 1938. It will probably never happen again.

My office pumps Christmas music into the sh*tters from Thanksgiving to New Year's, and by some cruel trick of the Gods, my morning bowel-voiding biorhythms have been synced to the playing of that song.

I probably heard it 30 times this year. I'm still gun shy about heading to the bog even now that they're back to playing 80s era Phil Collins and Steve Winwood. I think I need to see some kind of sh*t shrink.

If you have to hear all the bad songs again, you could do worse than hearing them through Garfunkel and Oates.

I'm not a huge fan of pop/dance music, but I have to say, compared to many of her other songs, this song sucks.

About a week ago I saw the clip of the adoption agency workers dancing around with puppies and kittens, lip-synching to Take a Chance on Me. Been in my head since then.

You refer to toilet paper as "@ss-wipe," don't you?
 
2013-01-30 10:30:47 AM
I've been keeping a similar list - classic rock songs that should never, ever, ever be played on the radio. Because of my age, I'm not terribly bothered by songs like Stairway To Heaven or Hotel California or Freebird. I'm more sick of songs that are done to death in commercials, TV shows, movies, etc. Come on, classic rock stations. You have a huge catalog to choose from. Nobody is interested anymore when these are played on the air... if you channel surf on cable TV for 45 minutes, you're guaranteed to hear at least one of these:

1. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
2. Kiss - Rock N Roll All Night
3. George Thorogood - Bad To The Bone
4. Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild
5. Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA
6. John Mellencougar - Jack & Diane
7. The Who - Who Are You

A couple of these songs are decent, and just suffer from being overplayed, which isn't the songs fault.

Others are truly awful on the first listen. But really, the hardest part is narrowing this list down to just 10.

Beyonce's Girls Who Run the World is terrible as well

Chorus

Who run the world? Girls! x4
Who run this motha? Girls! x4
Who run the world? Girls! x4

Not too often I actually want to put steel wool in my ears.

Again, the list is sh*t. It's the personal opinion of one person.

Funny because I just read this yesterday - Link

Burnett was able to secure the rights to the songs by Kenny Rogers and the Gipsy Kings and also added tracks by Captain Beefheart, Moondog and the rights to a relatively obscure Bob Dylan song called "The Man in Me".[42] However, he had a tough time securing the rights to Townes Van Zandt's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers", which plays over the film's closing credits. Former Stones manager Allen Klein owned the rights to the song and wanted $150,000 for it. Burnett convinced Klein to watch an early cut of the film and remembers, "It got to the part where the Dude says, 'I hate the farkin' Eagles, man!' Klein stands up and says, 'That's it, you can have the song!' That was beautiful".[42][44] Burnett was going to be credited on the film as "Music Supervisor" but asked his credit to be "Music Archivist" because he "hated the notion of being a supervisor; I wouldn't want anyone to think of me as management"
