Speakers Corner: The LF Forum > Top Five Most Hated Tracks of all time and why?

Tracks that get too much radio play, tracks that make you cringe at weddings, tracks that remind you of a break up.

But seriously what are five songs that make you want to kill?

Here is some that make me dry wretch when I hear them:

1) Madonna - Ray of Light: Awful song, played on a loop on Radio 1 for decades now and doesn't get any less annoying.
2) Faithless - Insomnia: I guess this reminds me of going to night clubs aged 15-17 and getting nowhere with women, plus it's just plain rubbish and an excuse for pilled up idiots to go wild.
3) Dexys Midnight Runners - Come on Irene: Watch as drunken people revel in doing the foot stomping bit at weddings and 80s nights across the country.
4) Whigfield - Saturday Night: Makes my skin crawl just hearing the opening bars.
5) Mad World - Gary Jules: Take a average song and make it even more whiney and worse.

What are you worst five?

Can't think of 5 off the top of my head, but one quick one that comes to mind (nostalgic numbers aside for now) is The Killers' 'Human'. Man, I hate that song, but everyone seemed to embrace it so much. I think it's fairly cheesy, it gets stuck in your head for days on end - I should really stop talking about it cos I can feel the song slowly worming its way into my mind!!

I did have a giggle at the Dexys reference - I'm sure there ode was to 'Eileen' and not 'Irene'. :)

I nearly wrote Come On My T*ts - instead of Irene/Eileen as a joke but thought that was one gag too far.

I think most Killer's songs are f*cking awful overplayed MOR shite to be honest. you're right though 'Human' is particularly bad.

First song that came to my mind, probably an odd or controversial choice, but Boney M 'The Tide is High'. That song is like fingernails on a blackboard to my ears.

hmmm didn't even know that song was by Boney M!

I hate Drugs Don't Work by the Verve and most songs by the B52s

Don't think I've met anyone who didn't like 'Drugs Don't Work'. I'm with you on the B52s though!!
