The Most Annoying Songs, Like, Everrr...
There are a lot of songs I like, but here are some that drive me nuts. I'm sure there are many I haven't thought of yet, if I do I'll add them later or do another post. Most of you weren't born when these songs came out. Consider yourselves lucky.
Click on names in yellow and enjoy. If you can...
Kumbaya- by..unfortunately by too many people to list. From what I know Kumbaya is another way of saying "Come by here". This song was probably induced by the same kind of acid trip that brought us Innagaddadavida (In a Garden of Eden). I believe the word Kumbaya is a Tibetan word which refers to the act of choosing to drive a spike through your eye rather than having to hear a song again. I choose the spike.
Going Up The Country- Canned Heat Proof you don't need to be able to sing to get into the music industry. His mom must have known somebody.
Anything by Jim Nabors. Go ahead click on his name, I dare ya.
The Holiday Season- by..I don't know and don't care. Perfect example of an annoying Christmas song, plain and simple.
Skinamarink- Sharon, Lois and Bram Okay, it is a kid's song. It eats into my brain because years ago I worked with a big oaf who sang it all day long. If he didn't weigh as much as my car I would have tackled him into a vat of boiling canola oil.
Having My Baby- Paul Anka This song leads us to believe the only way to show a man you love him is to go through 40 weeks of pain and discomfort for him.
Tip Toe Through The Tulips-Tiny Tim Are you fucking kidding me?
Anything by Josh Groban. Sorry. No I'm not.
Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon- Neil Diamond Is it just me or is there an element of creepiness to this song?
I Am Woman- Helen Reddy Cringe. The video I've linked to is very informative, gives info on domestic abuse. I highly recommend muting the song though.
Sometimes When We Touch- Dan Hill Overly sappy, even by my standards. That's pretty friggin' bad.
Anything by Il Divo
You Light Up My Life- Debbie Boone Cheesier than the pizza I had on New Year's.
Ice Ice Baby- Vanilla Ice Wannabe rapper. Like Eminem minus the attitude and talent.
Barbie Girl- Aqua Apparently there was some acid left over after Innagaddadavida was recorded.
Achy Breaky Heart-Billy Ray Cyrus Kill me now, I can't believe I have this stuff on my blog.
My Heart Will Go On-Celine Dion Sometimes I wish they'd sent her down with the Titanic and spared the captain.
The One-Elton John If this were sung by someone else it probably wouldn't have made this list. But these lyrics are so formulaic and beneath him. "You're all I ever wanted, oh baby you're the one." C'mon Elton, you can do better.
Firework-by Katy Perry "Oh my God" I hear you say, "a song I recognize!" Not a bad tune, it's on this list only because I've heard it more times than I've eaten breakfast. On the upside she did kiss a girl and like it which...well...you probably know how I feel about that.
Late entry...anything by Abba except 'Waterloo' and 'Knowing Me Knowing You'.
