SEASONS IN THE SUN
BILLY DON'T BE A HERO
CAT'S IN THE CRADLE
SUNSHINE ON MY SHOULDER
" What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong
That Coldplay song.
Lately I HATE that "Someone That I Used To Know"
R1 I was going to post the EXACT same list!
What a sad little place this is these days. Anyone have a recipe for meatloaf?
"We'll Sing in the Sunshine"
Horrible lyrics, dreary melody, bad harmonica. I'd listen to ALL of R1's Playlist of Doom rather than listen to this awful song ONCE.
Jeremiah was a bullfrog

I had an almost irrational hatred for "Torn Between Two Lovers." Also, much of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack not just because I didn't like it, but because it was played RELENTLESSLY everywhere for a year.
I need to add *anything" by The Captain and Tenille.

Torn Between Two Lovers is unbelievably bad. It's got everything - the grating melody, the ridiculous lyrics ("Let me hold you close and say these words as gently as I can"), the vocalist who sounds like she's swallowed a fistful of tranquilizers.

R1, How about "Alone Again Naturally" by Gilbert O Sullivan. It's an ode to suicide. For some reason, he was huge in Japan.
To think that only yesterday, I was cheerful bright and GAY
R27 who are you?
R27, i want you.
R29 after R25 and R26 I won't count on R27 wanting you back...
What the fuck, why don't you list the three songs you actually like. No doubt all by Madonna. It'd be a hell of a lot shorter.
You Light Up My Life
r18, we're sure you meant "ensure," since "insure"
is providing compensation for health care, death and the loss of property.

Anything 80s by Kool & The Gang.
Call Me Maybe
Doc Emmett Brown, writing from 2030
Isn't the thread about songs you've never liked? That's my list, I didn't know I was required to love those songs and OP didn't say we had to limit the list to one or two songs only - there are plenty songs by some of those same artists that I DO like, but whatever.
"Angie" and "Wild Horses"/Rolling Stones
"Get Back" and "Come Together"/Beatles
I've Never Been To Me
Gary Wright - Dreamweaver
"More Than Words" - Extreme
"Every Rose Has Its Thorn" - Poison
There are a lot of rock ballads that I like, but both or those are YUCK.
"Having My Baby"
"We Are Family", I've always loathed this song, especially when played at weddings!
Any song by Madonna, her helium voice literally hurts my ears.
Any song by Motley Crue
Any song by KISS
Wow, there are way too many to list!
That Aint No Way To Treat A Lady
Never Been to Me
I Am Woman
Torn Between Two Lovers
You're Having My Baby
The only way to get through "Having My Baby" is to sing along with the alternate lyrics:
"I'm having your baby -You're a creep and a coward and I wish I'd never known you. I'm having your baby - And looking back now I wish I'd only blown you.
I'm having your baby - For a momentary thrill threw 'way my reputation. I'm having your baby - Been three months now since my last ovulation. Let me put it to you - I'm gonna sue you. You did me, boy, but now I'm gonna do you...
I'm having your baby. Gonna get me a lawyer and let the whole world know it. I'm having your baby - you reap what you sow and you're the one who sowed it..
Oh gee, I knew it! Why'd I let you do it? You lied to me when you said you withdrew it.
I'm having your baby. I'm a woman in trouble but it's no great disaster. I'm having your baby - For the rest of your life you'll be paying for the little bastard."

What?? You don't like Ladies Night or Hollywood Swingin'?
The one about that stupid girl who goes chasing after a horse during a really bad snowstorm
yes r57. That's it!
Yeah anything that Helen Reddy sang was pretty awful, or was it her?
Torn Between Two Lovers is at the top of the list.
You Light Up My Life, close second
Tie A Yellow Ribbon
Muscrat Love (what the hell is muscrat love?)
New York, New York
I'm On Fi-yah (a little too current I suppose)
God damned "Muskrat Love" by Captain and Tennille (or America, take your pick, both versions eat syphilletic turdhole). I really hated that song. "My Humps" by Black-Eyed Peas ate shit too.
Anything by Rod Stewart, I think his entire catalog is pure shit. And I hate his whole persona, too. Something about Stewart has always made my skin crawl, he comes off as so creepy and pervy.
"And I wake in the morning and I step outside and I take a deep breath and I get real high and I say hey, what's goin' on."
**blow my fucking brains out with a shotgun**
Don't Worry Be Happy was terrible enough before it became a number one hit and the official song of HW Bush's election campaign.
Anything by Credence Clearwater Revival - The
Official Music of White Trash Everywhere®
CCR's Have You Ever Seen The Rain isn't bad.
Torn Between Two Lovers is beautifully sung.
I am in full agreement with the posters who listed "I've Never Been To Me" by Charlene and "American Pie" by Don McLean. I really hated "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot too. I also think I will shoot myself if I ever hear that over-played pile of garbage known as "Sugar Sugar" by The Archies again. Barf!
The moral of I've Never Been To Me is timeless.
Any music recorded by white people. Hillbillys don't know nothing about music. I'm sorry I am black and can not relate to your music. It sounds bad to my ears.
The groove of Sugar, Sugar is infectous. Don McLean vented a spleen with American Pie, but it was our collective spleen, r68, and important to any understanding of the ethics of the early 1970s.
Hillbillies feel the same about rap, r69.
It sounds like shoeshine boy music, but with a lot of anger.
Year of the Cat and anything else by Al Stewart.
Anything by REO Speedwagon.
Delta Dawn is a killer mix with a backup vocal that counts as one of the best of the decade. Story songs, particularly Southern gothic story songs were one of the most eclectic fads in '70s music. Delta Dawn by Helen Reddy is one of the best.
Yellow Submarine perfectly encapsulates the trippy sunshine pop of it's time. It's roots in the tradition of English pub singalongs contrasts brilliantly with the camp sensibility of the day.
Day by Day by Miss Barry Manilow.
Yesterday by The Beatles.
Hey Jude. Na na na na na na na fucking goes on forever.
r75: Even with that historical appreciation, I still find it one of the one of the most obnoxious Beatles songs when they were in their sledgehammer arch and twee 'music hall' phase.
I dislike everything by Stevie Wonder. I want to wipe that silly smile off his face, too. There, I said it.
That and Sympathy for the Devil, R78.
Hate them both!
Don't Worry, be Happy
I will always love you - Whitney's version

I was thinking the same thing when I couldn't use Netflix on Christmas Day. Talk about a travesty!

I see the usual music ideology has reared its ugly head in this thread. Why is the first impulse of so many people to list songs that are quirky, odd, melodic, or interesting and single them out for hate?
If you hate something like We are Family or Delta Dawn, what's on your best list? I'll bet it's something obscure and boring as hell that you treasure for that very reason.
If you want to trash something, at least pick something truly awful like Sade's "Sweetest Taboo" or Christopher Cross's "Sailing" or any number of Lionel Ritchie songs.
I grew up in the eighties and thought the music was crap at the time. Some songs are now sentimental favorites but after looking up all the hits from that time on link below I still say 90% of it was dog shit.
I really don't get the love for Michael Jackson after The Jackson Five. He had real talent but his music was shlocky and souless.
I also don't get how beyond her great voice Kelly Clarkson has had so many hits. Her song all sound the same and are boring. Nothing awful just dull.
I love Tina Turner, but if I never hear "What's Love Got To Do With It" again that would be just fine.
R94 has NO taste. "Everything She Wants" by Wham! is one of the best pop songs from the '80s, as is "Careless Whisper".
Come on, people, don't be hatin' on "I've Never Been To Me", it's practically the DL theme song.
I've been undressed by King Kong
Anything from Katy Perry
R69 - I am a black man myself and find your comment to be ignorant. I, along with most of my friends and acquaintances, listen to a variety of music. Yes, I love Black Soul, R&B, and the Blues, but I also will jam out to The Stones, Black Sabbath, Devo, The Ramones or The Killers. I feel sorry for you if you base your love of music on skin color. You are missing a world of wonderful sounds. We are all human beings and music belongs to us all. That is all...
[quote]I can appreciate the lyrics of "American Pie" but the song itself makes my asshole clench
At your age, I think that anything that made your asshole clench would be appreciated.
Well said, R87.
What GAY person could ever hate 'We Are Family' or 'Upside Down'? Tired of hearing them yet again, perhaps, though that would never apply to me.
But to [italic]hate[/italic] them? That only speaks of a lack of taste.
r102 is an oreo

Do you mean "Daybreak"?
Another vote for "She's having my baby."
"Paper Fucking Roses" by Marie Fucking Osmond!
Windy, Windy, Windy. Everyone knows it's Windy.
Mr. Roblotto by The Sticks
"You Are So Beautiful To Me" - Joe Cocker
I'd rather listen to a cat in heat calling out all night as it scrapes its claws along a chalkboard.
R112 LOL - I think you meant Mr. Roboto by Styx. Either way, it was a ghastly song. Some of their early work was okay, but Roboto deserves to remain forgotten.
Ditto on the Anita Bryant recordings. Her shit deserves to be forgotten. And yes, she was a cunt!
Anyone who thinks R69 is black needs his head examined.
Anything by Michael Bolton
"Put Your Hand in the Hand of the Man Who Stilled the Water"
Some bullshit song about "How He Makes Me Quiver".
That Paul Revere and the Raiders song about some Indian tribe.
Anything by Three Dog Night.
I don't like Southern pride rock.
How old are you, r118? Those sounds are all from 1971. Both 'Put Your Hand In the Hand' and 'Stay Awhile' were part of the mini Canadian invasion that included stars like Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell. Three Dog Night and Paul Revere scored their biggest hits with 'Joy to the World' and 'Indian Reservation(Lament of the Cherokee Nation Indian)'. I'm sorry you didn't have a better time because I think 1971 was one of the best years of music we ever had.
R120 has the theme song from The Mary Tyler Moore Show on his iPod.
And thinks "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia" is Classic Rock.
"mini Canadian invasion"?
That phrase says it all.
