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.

Welfare Peanut Butter: Oh! I forgot the most important one:

If I go to one more wedding that uses "Pachabel's Canon", I WILL go apeshiat, and I will not be held responsible for my actions. PICK A BETTER SONG, COOKIE CUTTER BRIDES.


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.

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.

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...

That's Leonard Cohen? I swear I always thought the man was black... Awesome voice, the guy truly rocks.

he's actually a pretty acclaimed poet too, but his music is amazing.  one of the greatest singer/songwriters.

You're dissing a sing entirely about getting a 'Nooner'? Who cares how bad it sounds, they were getting away with this shiat almost a full decade before 'Relax! and 'Feeling Japanese' tried it.


I am not dissing a nooner, but if you want annoying songs, this is a big one. Your argument would be like standing up for "It's A Small World" because it promotes world peace.

You don't really care for music, do you?

I will defend this choice, if only because it literally is inescapable if you watch movies/TV with any sort of regularity. That POS is EVERYWHERE, being covered by everyone, and it gets grating after awhile. It's not an awful song, but it gets bad pretty quickly when you hear it so often. Pick something else, whoever has the job of picking music for shows/movies.

Exactly.

The list was "songs you never need to hear again"... not necessarily shiatty songs, although many of them are shiatty. But every time someone needs a shallowly deep moment in TV or Movies, Hallelujah gets dusted off and thrown into the soundtrack. It needs to be stopped.

clkeagle: 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

indarwinsshadow: Rihanna, Diamonds - Lyrics

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Yeah, that's real cutting edge thought provoking lyrics. The list should be written on toilet paper so I can wipe my ass with it.


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.
