List is way too modern and leaves off many classic insidious songs.

noazark: Here we come on the run
with a burger on a bun
and a dab of coca on the side.

Your taste we will tickle
with a cold dill pickle,
and all of our potatoes
are french-fried-fried-FRIED..!

Our burgers can't be beat,
'cause we grind our own meat.
Grind-grind-grind-GRIND-grind!

And when you go away,
a tip upon our tray
we hope to find-find-find-FIND-find,
we hope to find-find-find-FIND-FI-I-I-IND..!


LOL, I've been driving my wife and 12 year old crazy with this song for the last month. I actually had the single (78 rpm and get the fark off my lawn) when I was like 8 years old and played it endlessly.

Went to an Ulta-luxury wedding on Hilton head where the bride Glided down the aisle to  a nice classical piece of music, but the recessional was Barry White singing "Let's get it on".

Since my lady love and I have been engaged going on 9 years now, if we everydo have the ceremony we're going to use Etta James' "At Last"

EyeballKid: Heard it Through the Grapevine

Is that the Marvin Gaye version, the Gladys Knight & the Pips version, or the CCR version? The former I agree, the 2nd and 3rd I still enjoy, especially the CCR version.


CCR version is pretty kick ass!

rockymountainrider: any version of "Pave Paradise" will have me diving for the radio controls. Pearl Jam's cover of "Last Waltz" too. Sheryl Crow's covers...The Who...
actually anything played on mainstream classic rock stations. not that i don't like the bands but i'm certain the rolling stones have a large enough discography that i don't have to listen to "jumpin jack flash, paint it black and start me up" on a regular rotation.
same for the who, zep, ac/dc and the rest...

mix it up!


It's called big yellow taxi and trying to figure out the title in the printer net days was maddening, since I heard it on office muzak every day.

The song part. Banging Top Gun era Kelly McGillis is A-OK in my book.

So, they include "Gangnam Style" on the list after Huffington Post linked every f*cking novelty cover of that song ever made. Hot Tip: Don't overplay trendy songs and you won't hate them so much.

How about we ban anything by The Spin Doctors, Creed and Stone Temple Pilots. That would be a good start for me.

My misses wanted that song, so I agreed as long as it was my choice on which version. I played it for her on the bagpipes. To this day she cringes everytime she hears that song. She chose some other classical POS but at least we avoided that crap.

That's why they do it. Their actions give them filler for their site.

1) Hype something until it's old
2) Complain about the over saturation.
3) Profit!

Eliminating step one eliminates step two, and then you have to actually come up with something of substance to fill your site. That requires time, work, and effort. Screw that. Much easier to hype and complain. Self-feeding, predictable, and people keep clicking.

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


That is one of my favorite Xmas songs. Seriously.

mlkmandan: No hate for "shine bright like a diamond........shine bright like a diamond........shine bright like a diamond....."?


*raises hand*

I heard that piece of garbage all over the place while doing my holiday shopping last month.

I didn't know who that annoying voice belonged to until just the other day...now I kinda sorta understand why the jerk who hit her (the same jerk who she stupidly got back together with) did so.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Old crappy songs that I never want to hear again:

Yummy Yummy Yummy
Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes (AAAACK!)
Having My Baby
Convoy
Afternoon Delight
Torn Between Two Lovers
You Light Up My Life (AAAAACK again. I'll never understand why that song was #1 for months back in 1977)
Don't Cry Out Loud
I've Never Been To Me

Anything by Jimmy Buffett
Anything by Air Supply
Nearly everything released since 1994
Just about every rap "song" ever recorded

Fark you, article! I actually like "Don't you want me baby" by the Human League. It's the "soundtrack" of my early 80's youth, in fact!

And Double-FARK YOU for not including "Macarena" too!

GreatGlavinsGhost: Those are horrific!  I'll have to add them to my ever-growing list ...


Hmmm...haven't seen that before. Great minds think alike . :)

Except for Moonlight Feels Right. That was one of the mellowest songs of 1976. And Spiral Starecase was cool way back when.

As for other songs from that year, you can add Shannon (about some dude's dog). I also forgot to add a few other gems from the early 1970s: Playground In My Mind, Billy Don't Be A Hero, and Wildwood Weed.

I have the 45 of SitS...the song on the flip side is Put The Bone In. Seriously.

Run Joey Run...AKA Quick Joey Small...I remember that one also.

and yes, I still have the Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus album that was given to me when I was 6 (it doesn't have QJS on it, though)

I know this is going to make some people all kinds of stabby, but I have to list.

Ever been to or watched a sporting event? I will bet dollars to donuts that you heard one or all of these songs, possibly multiple times during said event. Hearing these songs over and over again is like having my ears stabbed with a pencil.

1) Welcome to the Jungle
2) Crazy Train
3) Enter Sandman
4) Anything at all by AC/DC
5) That "We READY" crap, do not even know the name of the "song".
6) Seven Nation Army is starting to annoy the shiatsnacks out of me.

Just because it is old, does not make it better. I used to like listening to AC/DC when I was younger. Their music just does not age well.

/yes, I am over 30

And then, when you really want to make people scream, you bring out "Billy, don't be a hero!". Worst. Song. EVAR!!!

FirstNationalBastard: Also missing:

Any version of "Hallelujah", especially in a movie or TV show.
Anything by anyone who was ever a contestant on American Idol
Any Christmas song
Paul McCartney's "Silly Love Songs"


Anything from Paul McCartney from Mull of Kintyre onwards.
Land Down Under - Men at Work (the worst song ever recorded)
Don't Worry Be 'Appy - Bobby McFerrin (also the worst song ever recorded)
 
2013-01-30 08:31:46 PM
Soak up the Sun by Sheryl Crow is the worst hell on the ears imaginable.  I would walk through fire and broken glass to leave the room.

For all you Silly Love Song haters, you try singing and playing bass at the same time to this

Just had a chat with the future Ms. Spiffed.   She agrees about Pachabel's Cannon being badly overdone at weddings and said its not for us.   but...  we've been talking about having a string quartet anyway, and she plays a mean bass guitar....  so we're considering including Canon.. as long as it is funtwo's version of Canon Rock.. and she plays the bass part after a nice fake-out intro by the quartet.   She's all for the exploding heads that's liable to cause.

Any song they didn't write enough lyrics for, but still feel like they should sing something over and over makes my list.

"Simply Having a Wonderful"--DIE DIE DIE [stomp] DIE KILL KILL!!!!1!

"I-i-i wanna roll all night and"--DIE BURN BLEED DIE DIE FARK YOU ASSBLASTER!!

Write more lyrics, douches, it's your damn job. Christ, I want to crucify people who purposefully play those songs. Also: Ice Ice Baby and Achy Breaky Heart and My Humps.

"Who let the dogs ou--" YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH OR I'LL SHUT IT FOR YOU!

"We built this city..." DAMN IT! Why am I not changing the channel yet? CHANGE IT! Hold on, self, let me listen for just a couple of--Aww, crap, damnitsomuch, now that sh*t's running circles around my medulla oblongata.
