Classic songs you hate

You know they're classics and they're not shit but still, you can't stand them. I wanna know why you don't like them. "Cos they're shit, innit" is not a reason.

I'll start with God Only Knows by The Beach Boys. I don't like their harmonies anyway but the component parts of this particular song all grate on my nerves, especially the "bah pah bap ba baaah" bit and the God Only Knows refrain repeated ad nauseum at the end.

Yeah hate that song too. Can't stand the Monkees' Daydream Believer: naff lyrics, cheesy American theme, repetitious 60s bollocks. Plus it always makes me think of Peter Reid.

That's one of the main ones for me, for the very reasons that you state. I've always disliked the Beach Boys and that one's a particular horror for me.

'I Will Always Love You' - Whitney Houston. She absolutely tortured that song to death, turning a decent tune into an wailing exercise in vocal gymnastics. I won't post a link, because I don't want to inflict it on anyone again.

Never got the Beach boys hype. Always thought they were slightly shit.
Then again never got Elvis either.

And on that note, 'Come On Eileen', which sounded more like an instruction than a song title. Hated it then, hate it now. Fecking 'too rye ay' indeed. Shameful. That was the start of Geno Washington meet Michael Fecking Flatulently.

I have a dislike for My Way, too - in particular Sinatra' version. I know it's heresy, but I can't stand Sinatra's voice. I always found his singing, and his phrasing, creepy, and I'd extend my dislike of his version of My Way to everything he did. *

Walk of Life, Dire Straits. Cheesy, soulless, faux, rock 'n' roll-lite, dancing round the handbags, pap.

I suppose it's pop related, at least.

For a bloke who couldn't sing and my god he could not sing he had a great career.

Imagine - John Lennon.

I love the Beatles, but this song is fecking awful in every way. The lyrics are shit and if Boyzone had releases the song it would rightly be derided as a load of dogs cock.


Also, on the same album are two brilliant songs (How Do You Sleep? And Gimme Some Truth) which are Lennon at his nasty, vindictive best...
Dictated but not read.

Baker Street. Gerry Rafferty. April 78.
Particularly bad time of my life, that song seemed to be played everywhere for weeks on end. Everytime i put the radio on, Baker Street would be playing first. Endless TOTP for weeks, car radio Baker bloody Street. Hate it.

Even now its played pretty regular on the radio. Soon as i hear that first blast of sax, radio goes off

Walk a thousand miles by the pretenders.

Makes me want to hit my head against the wall and their stupid over the top Scottish accents just really grates. Also the fact it seems to have to played every time there is anything to do fecking Scottish people.
Went to a wedding with a Scottish bloke. They were also complaining DJ's always put it on. Then he did and they all got up on the dance floor shouting their heads off.
Sweaty chunts.
