    Oh, so many songs, so little time. Most of my "hates" have been mentioned, but here goes, in no particular order.

    Yummy Yummy Yummy... I got love in my tummy.... OMG. WTF??? *puke* It was a 60s song I think.

    Any Robert Palmer song. Why can't they retire these already. "I Didn't Mean to Turn You ON..." You didn't!

    What a Lucky Man He Was - Emerson Lake and Palmer. Weirdest, freakiest crap of a song EVER.

    Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. I have heard this 1000 times in the morning while getting ready for work. This song is forever equated with getting ready for work. *pleh* Enough said.

    She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy -and anything by Kenny Chesney. Not a big country fan anyway, but this is ridiculous. Shoot me now.

    My Hump. Stupid, pointless trash.

    lol

    On the other hand I love MacArthur park! lol. Also, Blinded by the Light, ABBA, and can sit through You Light Up My Life. Hehe. No accounting for taste eh?

    I never cared that much for Robert Palmer either. BUT..I did like the ORIGINAL Every Kinda People. But from what I heard Robert hated that song so much ( the original from the 70s ) that he destroyed the master copy of it around the same time he re-recorded that song in the 90s. Result being the original is a rare find and hardly ever ( if ever ) gets played but the newer Every Kinda People does seem to find its way on those light rock radio stations. Guess thats the way he wanted.

    ELP's Lucky Man...I used to play that a lot in my classic rock radio days.
    It was a good song to sneak out of the studio to go to the bathroom during. But not as good as American Pie LOL

    My apologies if anyone likes this song-

    But- I despise that 'Walking in Memphis' song.
    It is like some guy who makes a list of stuff he did in Memphis and turned it into a song.
    Then is it one or more women we are supposed to be enraptured with in the song? I forget-it seems to be manufatured 'so-called' nostalgia'
    Hm see 'Uh I was walking in Memphis and I almost stepped in dog doo-I was walking in Memphis and I thought about Winnie-the Pooh'
    (my new version of one of the lines)

    OH! Mr. Jones by Counting Crows and a few others by them. Sounds like a bad evening at the Coffee Shop during 'Open Mike Night'
    I.E.
    Lalalala oh yeah,yeah ohhhhhh uh yah lalalala ooohhh

    I love that song :

    "when you haven't got a prayer, boy you got a prayer in Memphis"

    That part makes me want to cry, he seems so honest, like he really did all those things.

    Oh well, to each their own

    About "Walking in Memphis".....the part where he says he went down to the Hollywood and the lady was playing the piano, something about, "Are youa christian, child" "I said I am tonight"
    THe Hollywood is a resturant in Robinsonville MS. THe lady he is talking about really exsisted, she was a large black lady who played piano and sang on the weekends. I celebrated my 28th b'day there. My daughter who is almost 25, was 5 at the time and Miss Muriel (I think) got her up tp sing Twinkle Little Star with her. I knida hate this song too, except for that part.

    OMG! I know that love is blind; but it must be thourghly deaf as well. What was John thinking???

    I searched for a link on YouTube; but you are fortunate. I did not find one.


    Anything by Yoko freakin Ono...OMG...her voice sounds like fingernails scraping a chalkboard...and when she screeches a high note..my bowels release...God save us if she tries her hand at singing again!

    My friend was reading me a list over the phone of the top pop songs of 1971. I asked her for a copy, as my brain made a decision not to remember any of the names of these songs. But, damn, they were bad. She and I agreed that they were the reason we started using drugs. When I get the list, I'll pick a few and inflict them on you all.

    Um, I have to say " I want you to want me" by Cheap Trick is pretty damn annoying. I always listen to classic rock stations and dive for the button when that song comes on. His voice is so whiny. And Jefestone.....Katmandu is realllllllly annoying good call. I like some Seger but he does have a talent for making annoying songs as well. lol

    And Iron Maiden. I know they're classic metal and all, but egads. And 'Run to the Hills' gets stuck in my head all the time.

    A few that come to my mind:

    Roxanne - Police
    Feelings - Morris Albert

    And the VERY worst IMHO:

    That is an astoundingly bad list (1981). I remember that year, yeah.

    The only thing that sort of pops through is The Police. No wonder they hit it so big--the market was so ready for something.

    If You Wanna Be Happy
    Jimmy Soul


    This song might have been mentioned. It always seems to be in the rotation on oldies stations.


    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Never make a pretty woman your wife
    So for my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you

    A pretty woman makes her husband look small
    And very often causes his downfall
    As soon as he married her and then she starts
    To do the things that will break his heart

    But if you make an ugly woman your wife
    A-you'll be happy for the rest of your life
    An ug-a-ly woman cooks meals on time
    And she'll always give you peace of mind

    Don't let your friends say you have no taste
    Go ahead and marry anyway
    Though her face is ugly, her eyes don't match
    Take it from me, she's a better catch

    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Never make a pretty woman your wife
    So for my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you

    Say man!
    Hey baby!
    I saw your wife the other day!
    Yeah?
    Yeah, an' she's ug-leeee!
    Yeah, she's ugly, but she sure can cook, baby!
    Yeah, alright!

    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Never make a pretty woman your wife
    So for my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you

    Close! Wrong Dan...that's Fogelberg. I kind of liked it, when we all thought it was about the grocery store in Champaign, near where Dan used to play (he was a U of I student). Then, I found out it wasn't, and that was it for me!

    This may be on here, but it bears repeating...

    Run Joey Run - David Geddes

    Makes me want to jab red-hot knitting needles through my ears.

    LOL..I remember ALL of those songs !!

    Interesting by 1983 ( only 2 years away ), about 95% of those who had hits in 1981...they were never on the charts again at least not on the Top 40 charts anyway.

    Why? Give thanks to MTV and FM radio. In 1981 many top 40 stations were still on AM like New York City's WABC. By 1983 one could count the number of AM top forty radio stations on one hand and still have a few fingers left.

    Oh my dear sweet lord....no words can describe the horribleness of this....stupefyingly bad.

    (The guy's not bad looking, though, and he had a pretty good voice. It all could have been different for him, lol)

    Thanks for the laugh!

    Glad I could provide some humor! Man, that song is bad. Seems like that era was chock full of melodramatic pop stuff. Honey, Billy Don't Be A Hero, The Night Chicago Died...

    Excuse me. I have to go fire up some Megadeth. Kind of a musical sorbet to cleanse the palate!

    "Which Way You Goin' Billy" by the Poppy Family was sort of in that vein. But I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that was a good song. Because of how beautifully it was sung. By a Sharon Tate lookalike, no less.

    Ok, just read up on that song. Learned it was Canada's biggest hit ever. Also learned the Poppy Family consisted of singer Susan Jacks and then-husband Terry Jacks....

    ....who went on to write and perforn a song I'd give an honorable mention for worst:

    "Seasons in the Sun." (Although all my junior-high classmates loved that one.)
