Lorelle: 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.

/still has the 45 of Half Breed
//Cher was cool

Gah, I forgot all about Playground! lol

Aezetyr: 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

AC/DC doesn't age well? Funny, they seem to be aging well. (Well, not Bon, but the rest...) AC/DC does have a way of becoming monotonus if overplayed, but I would posit that's a different problem than "aging." They farking rock; always will IMHO.

I think Crazy Train is fine too. I think anything that's overplayed will eventually become unpalatable until younhave a nice rest from it. Sporting events will surely do that.

Magorn: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: 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.

/But yeah that song drove us crazy so we started smashing shiat

My first year at Burning Man, someone had built a full scale replica of that ride with loud-speakers that blared hundreds of different versions of that song (in other languages, speed up, slowed down, techno-ified etc) at all hours of the day and night, and every evening  at sunset a big military truck would pull up and dozens of men dressed like commandos, except  with steel mouse ears welded to thier helmets, would herd a mob of people dressed in costumes like those in the ride, to the  stage and force them at gunpoint to perform the song several times.    Except on the last night, just after the performance a woman dressed like the runner in Apple's famous "1984" ad came running up and hurled a satchel charge into the heart of the installation, blowing it into a million pieces and then burning the shards to ash.

It was.....the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen

My dad still talks about his hatred of that song, thanks to a summer custody visit about 2 weeks after my bro and I went to Disney World.  He says we only knew 2 lines, "It's a small world after all" repeat x20 at a higher pitch each time, and when we couldn't sing any higher... "it's a small, small world", aaaaand repeat. Just thinking about it makes me feel like a bad person, but he deserved it.

Robin Sparkles - Let's Go to the Mall
The best song of ALL TIME!!!

Lorelle: IC Stars: Seasons in the Sun
Run Joey Run
Watching Scotty Grow

/want more?

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 actually liked Quick Joey Small - I think IC Stars may have been referring to this.

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!

There really isn't any song by Zeppelin that bothers me, and I think the only Floyd song I am completely sick of is Another Brick in the Wall (and in all fairness I disliked that song from day one- we don't need no education was not a sentiment that I was a big fan of, even though they were referencing the practices of British public schools, most American kids took it literally to mean we don't need to learn anything or ever read books or listen to anyone with an IQ over 100, etc) . I was always in the Gilmour camp anyway, Waters was so whiny sometimes and his mommy issues were disturbing to say the least. I'm ok with The Who up to the last couple of albums, and The Stones Exiles on Main Street and earlier. Their later stuff is campy and awful.

In general I don't listen to "classic" rock because I've heard all those 30 and 40 year old songs hundreds of times and music has changed, the world has changed, and I have changed. There is so much amazing music that has been recorded in the last 20 years and people don't even want to hear it. That makes me sad. Most people get into a comfort zone as far as music goes and they listen to the same music that they listened to in high school or college for the rest of their lives. They think that if a band is not played on Clear Channel they can't be good, or they are afraid to tell their friends that they like a band that isn't well known. Screw that.

/loves Porcupine Tree
//hates Freebird
///check out radioparadise.com -a very eclectic musical sampling of the past and present and each song has it's own ongoing discussion thread. Really fun and the trolls put Fark's politics tab to shame.

I like that Human League song.

Hard Nard: Didn't read the whole thread, but anything by Boston makes me want to set my hair on fire.

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

In the early to mid 1970s, Far Out/Bummer and Alright/Oh No! jokes were popular (maybe it was just a SoCal thing, I don't know). One of my favorites:

Far Out: You got tickets to a concert
Bummer: It's Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods (or The Osmonds)

The Bird: I actually liked Quick Joey Small - I think IC Stars may have been referring to this.

Ah, I forgot about that one. AAAACK.

Do you remember Jeans On?

/damn annoying CH-CH
