Let's make our own horrible tracklist.
1) Toploader - Dancing in the Moonlight
(i.e. pick a popular song and claim it's as horrible as Toploader). See the first reply for exactly that.
At least there's a nostalgia factor. Not knowingly heard the Taylor Swift song so can't comment on that.
that Toploader tune is great, if only for the scene in Four Lions
It was both really funny, and the point when I thought, 'they like Toploader - these people are MONSTERS'
Thought it was a cover. It's probably more or less identical to the original.
The new Ed Sheeran one
But I always skip that track.
Was kinda fun when we were all really drunk.
Performed by any pub band. People with no interest in music invariably seem to love that song for some reason.
Simply Red - Holding Back The Years
Those are two stone cold Reebok Classics.
Nothing against it and I've drunkenly sung it on many occasions but it always seems to be the one song cited by people who think that "real music" is a thing, and that said real music can only be performed by white men with guitars. Always features on those annoying "It took 4 people to write this/it took 1 person to write this" things on Facebook. Fuck off. It took dozens of people to write Seinfeld, and one person to write Miranda, so such a stat means absolutely fuck all.
From season 3, when George becomes amazing. For me, favourite character in a sitcom
Expecting him to hate it.
He thought it was wonderful that Robbie paid homage to his favourite band and should be "knighted."
Williams has released some dreck in his time but every now and then he comes back with a gem.
I don't see this as snobbishness, they just don't think about it or care about it and I am sure they would admit it. I don't have a taste in knitting patterns or board games. I still wear jumpers or play Monopoly at Christmas time, but I don't really give a shit about them. If someone just wants something they can hum along to then Dancing in the Moonlight does them just fine.
Shania Twain - Man I Feel Like a Woman
fireflies, that's it.
(funky house or trance mix for steroided-up gym/rugby meatheads who have to prove they have a SENSITIVE SIDE, MAAAN)
is an absolute tune..
This is perhaps the worst offender.
I don't think this says great things about me.
Theme from Friends
You've Got the Music in You - New Radicals
You only get what you give is a bloody great song
My sex is on fire
Metallica - Enter Sandman
Nirvana - Smells like Teen Spirit
Not bad songs mind you, just favorites of people with no taste when everyone else got sick of these songs years ago.
and the only bit of Creep I've ever heard is that bit in Father Ted when he's on the bus. Will give you Nirvana though.
that's exit music (for a film) innit
What's the one where everyone's lying down in the video? They played that at the indie night at university and everyone lay down but I'd not knowingly heard it before or seen the video (nor have since). Tbf it might be quicker to say the only Radiohead song I know is Optimistic, which is actually alright.
WITH DROPS OF JUPITER IN HER HAIR HEEEEEY HEEEEEY
have fallen on hard times
I try to give bands like that a fair hearing, but then they go and spoil it all by doing something stupid like this.
George Ezra - Budapest
Passenger - Let Her Go
Please, please, please stop doing this affected Kermit the Frog voice.
Because what the world needs is someone doing a fantastic impression of just how terrible Bryan Adams is.
I don't get much joy out of hating music any more, but this still raises my hackles.
and that absolutely awful song ' I Like the Way you Move'
most of all, yeah most of all.... I LIKE THE WAY YOU MOOOOVE!!
dadadadadun dadadadadun dadadadadun
if someone wrote the rest of the chorus, they've only got one line atm.
'Chorus = title of song x many' is one of the most annoying things. The chorus is supposed to be the best bit, so fucking write some words for it!
But they're done in that oily stalker/70s medallion man voice
"I like the way you, put your hands up in the air,
I like the way you, shake your hair,
I like the way you, like to touch,
I like the way you, stare so much,
but most of all....
most of all...."
It's a bit like a brilliant review of Lady In Red I once saw - "like being kissed with Marmite-covered lips"
now that's what i call smooth radio driving tunes
Muse - Starlight
Hard Fi - Cash Machine
Nickelback - Rockstar
Babylon Zoo - Spaceman
Starsailor - Alcoholic
Not necessarily defending it, but it's really not casual-music-fan fodder. Unless you've only ever heard the first 30 seconds off the advert.
What a tune.
Don't think it can withstand the levels of airplay it got in June 1995 or whenever it was, but to hear every now and then it's a great little number.
Simply Red- If You Don't Know Me By Now
LMFAO- Sexy and I Know It
Bryan Adams and Mel C- When You're Gone
Hate hate HATE that song. There's some Coldplay I find bearable but this is just incredibly lazy.
Every - and I do mean EVERY - pub band/singer in Asia seems to be legally obliged to include this in their set.
4 non blondes - whats going on
Starship - we built this city
You're taking one down (?)
Sing a sad song just to turn it aroooound!
all of Madonna's singles since 2000
Was another elitist snobfest thread
Dire Straits - Walk of Life
