annoying songs

ahhh, this thread was inspired by this news right here.

James Blunt's multimillion-selling ballad "You�re Beautiful" has been voted the most irritating song of all time.

Despite reaching number one in 11 countries and making the singer a star around the world, the track polled more votes than "Axel F" by Crazy Frog.

Other tracks in the top 10 included "Mmm Bop" by Hanson, "Mr. Blobby" by Mr. Blobby, and "The Birdie Song" by the Tweets.

Reported by London's The Sun newspaper, John Sewell of market researcher company www.onepoll.com said the result was a surprise.

He added: James Blunt isn�t the obvious choice, but any song that is at number one for so long does start to get annoying."

"You're Beautiful" was number one for five weeks in the U.K. in 2005.

The full top 10 for OnePoll's Most Irritating Song of All Time is as follows:

1. "You�re Beautiful" - James Blunt
2. "Axel F" - Crazy Frog
3. "MMMBop" - Hanson
4. "Mr. Blobby" - Mr. Blobby
5. "Birdie Song" - The Tweets
6. "Shout" - Lulu
7. "Agadoo" - Black Lace
8. "Grace Kelly" - Mika
9. "My Heart Will Go On" - Celine Dion
10. "Macarena" - Los Del Rio


What songs annoy/irritate you?

Personally, I loathe that song by the Los Lonely Boys - Heaven.

That list is horribly biased towards material released after 1990, demonstrating the short memories of the public and probably that there was a prepared list from which the pool of voters selected. Also that the Brits do even worse manufactured pop and novelty music than 10 times as many Americans. What's wrong with you people? ;)

The most annoying song of all time is the flip side of "They're Coming to Take Me Away" by Napoleon XIV, released in 1966. Titled "Yawa Em Ekat ot Gnimoc Er'yeht," it is the A side played backwards. Rock critic and historian Dave Marsh said he once saw it clear a bar in under a minute.

Personally, I'll be happy if I never hear Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater" again, or some of the bubblegum hits of the '60s and '70s.

Avril Levigne: Girlfriend. It seems like I hear it on the overhead everytime I walk into a grocery store... :?:

I can see why most of that list is up there, for sure, although there's probably as worthy contenders from previous decades, no doubt.

Although, in my weaker moments, I might have to defend MMMbop as a slightly classier brand of innocent pop goodness.

Another day, though.

When talented pop-rock princess Avril Levigne, youtubes most watched music superstar, (39 million hits and counting!) teams up in a musical combo for the ages with new, hot off of the streets hip-pop sensation Lil Mama to bring you the combined powerpop force of...

Avril Lavigne & Lil' Mama - Girlfriend



Something inside makes me want to die.


EDIT: Are you feelin' it moo? ARE YOU FEELIN IT? :roll:

Ah, the bubblegum years - nearly as bad as disco. I detest anything by The Jacksons, Cowsills, or Archies. ((shudder)) I grew up surrounded by C&W, which really sucked. Thank the goddesses for a late-night-only FM radio station, where I met Motown :D

The song that is like fingernails scratching a blackboard to me is Achy Breaky Heart. Damned Billy Ray Cyrus :evil:

I almost stopped "Girlfriend" during the self-shout-out that opened the horrible thing, but I gave it 30 seconds.

Can you imagine what The Vicar is going to have to listen to as little Jillian grows up? Can you imagine what djj is going to have to listen to as her two children grow up? Perhaps I'm fortunate that exposure to Ted Nugent live rendered me sterile.

I'm gonna have to cite you for comparing the Jackson Five to the Cowsills and the Archies. :D We're talking Motown here, ma'am. Baby Motown, yes, but Motown. Now the Osmonds, yeah, put them right there with the Cowsills and the Archies. But not the Jackson Five.

If we're talking truly annoying... as in it won't get out of your head, and it's making you wanna stick an ice pick in your ear...

It's a world of laughter
A world of tears
It's a world of hope
And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all!!!!

Here's one I think I mentioned a year and a half ago somewhere. "Quick Joey Small (Run Joey Run," by the Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus, on Buddha Records circa 1968.

Ah, Dennis, gotta disagree with you. C'mon, remember 'A, B, C'? As bad as the Beatle years of 'I love you, ya, ya, ya...'. :wink:

Baby Motown in my years were The Supremes, Temptations, Smokey & the Miracles. By the time Stevie Wonder came along, I'd gotten out of Petticoat Junction and was listening to Moody Blues, Zappa, Zeppelin, Genesis....

I meant Baby Motown as in young artists ... like Little Stevie Wonder, the 12-year-old musical genius (as they called him). I'll argue that prime Motown is better than anything the Moody Blues and most of what Zeppelin put on vinyl.

And I like early Beatles. :P

I will agree that "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" probably should be used to interrogate hardcore al-Qaeda operatives.

#1 Any song "sung" by John Mayer.
#2 Any song "sung" by Grace Jones.
#3 Any song released in the last ten years with the words "Superman" or "Kryptonite" in it. They all blew equally.

I was in Amsterdam a few years back, and Mmmm Bop was HUGE. It was on every radio, every TV station, every EVERYTHING for the entire time I was there.

Currently, I'll say that awful Gwen Stefani 'song' that thinks it sounds like a '50s doo-wop song. Barf.

omg i am in heaven in this thread. Ok im a bouncer at a club and they play, in my opinion, the shittiest music to ever be conceived. That new Gwen Stephani song, horrible, the "This is why im hot" song makes me want to puke, and all the Fergie songs make my ears want to bleed. Thankfully, i talked to my boss and he will start allowing us to wear earplugs :D its either that or they pay for my future miracle ear.

As a passionate lover of music,
I fully expect to land in hell.

If there's anything worse than "rap",
I shudder to think what it is.

Although polka music still hurts my molars.

it's already been mentioned, several times, and rightfully so, but it deserves as much scorn as it can possibly get: avril lavigne 'girlfriend' - it makes me want to stab myself in the head with a pencil. will someone please slap her for me?

and most of gwen stefani's songs are annoying, but the one that annoys me the most is the one where she yodels or whatever.

RIDER: I know taste is subjective. But Divine liked to eat shit every now and then...

I work with this guy in a clothes shop, who insists on playing the corniest songs known to humanity ad nauseum. I mean, cool, it's fair enough when you're blitzed out on ketamine to trip out to The Care Bears' theme, but EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY.

Whenever I put something different on, the moment I leave the shop, I'll come back and his ipod will be on, and he'll be rocking out to Africa by Toto, or Under da Sea from the Little Mermaid soundtrack.

The thing is, I've just become a total pushover in regards to the copious amounts of corn that come blaring out of those speakers. I've even stopped bothering to put on my own stuff. Whenever a customer comes into the shop, I just KNOW they'll stop and stare at me for a few seconds, asking themselves, "Hmm...I'd never have guessed he was the kind of guy to listen to Europe." But I'm not! Music is serious, maaan.

I blame Vice City for initiating legions of impressionable teenagers into the world of piss-poor '80s "classics".
