Default Songs that make one cringe.

OK, here’s a new topic – moronic songs that one can’t stand to listen to.
These three get my vote as the most irritatingly stupid songs ever written:

If God was one of us – Joan Osbourne (daaarrrrr darrrr........darrrrr darrrrr)
Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band (“Sky rockets in flight” “WTF?)
Ironic - Alanis Morissette ("Isn't it Irr....."....Urgghh, NO!.....buy a dictionary dummy......)

[/RANT]

Yes, after I saw your post I wanted to add U2 as well. They get the prize for most pretentious band also.

Now, now, Bas.... can you really tell me that you haven't watched one of her video clips?

I never cared for any of her music either but those videos are just amazing.

I would swap you Norah for Roxette...

Also the early U2 stuff was not bad, like the stuff they released around the time they did This monkey's going to heaven, and Sunday bloody Sunday...

Being slightly uncharitable here, but:

We Are the World - USA For Africa (read the lyrics and cringe)
Do They Know It's Christmas? - Band Aid (an apt name)
Ferry across the Mersey....

and most other "charity" records.

Nothing more sickening that luvvies trying to be sincere. Yuck.

That was the Pixies, methinks.
Do agree though that U2 were OK up to about 1983.

They lost the plot after the Joshua tree.

Roxette
Ah yes..they were SOOO popular in South Africa when I lived there..it was hard not to hate them!

Norah is not really bad...but I grow tired very quickly of her monotonous voice.

ok, when i go to a party and the DJ plays sandstorm, cascada, pendulum (any drum n bass), neophyte, or two step trancey headbangers like skazi, i just want to kill myself due to overwhelming cheesiness. Also i hate bob dylan- his voice pisses me off even if the lyrics and instrumentals are meaningful. Paul oakenfold shoulda retired long ago. Then theres the whiney screaming rock kids are into today... thats my 8
