    Boy George ...do you really want to hurt me. Can't stand the vibe...but a little catchy which makes it worse when you find yourself humming along!

    That song always bugged me, but I have to admit, Culture Club were a really good band. Those guys were good musicians. But yeah, a little to Teen Beat in image

    This is it for me; hated this thing. Made me want to heave.



    And this is a close second.

    I've always hated overblown ballads, regardless of the genre or the era. "You Light Up My Life". "All by Myself", "When I Need You" - that sort of dreck. If I hear those songs on a cold, overcast day, they just make me feel a whole lot worse. Like I want to binge on cheap scotch and cigarettes.

    For a bleak three month stretch when I was in college, I came to, much too early, every morning thanks to Debbie Boone bellowing out "You Light Up My Life" on my crappy clock radio. You just don't know how bad that sounds when you wake up hungover and late for Thermodynamics class.

    The worse song ever made, IMO. The stupidity of the lyrics is only surpassed by the rhythmic hook, ensuring that it gets stuck in your head like superglue to fingers. It's like a drunk Dr Seuss decided to write a song. It seriously makes me want to destroy whatever is playing it. Enjoy......

    And what a joy filled bunch we have here today

    Sometimes people seem to forget that sometimes music should just be fun.

    For example, Rick Sringfield, man got me more action in high school than any 10 .k tel completions combined.

    So imagine my disappoitmdisa in college, I see him 10 feet away playing ath.o.b. only to find a hired gun off to the side playing all the lead parts.

    Then he did his infamous rail walk infront of my date, a solid REM fan if there ever was one, and she's panting so hard .I'm dialig 911

    That's when I remembered Satch is the guitarist. Springfield is the entertainer......

    Just because I love baseball doesn't mean that I have to like all the players. Joy has nothing to do with it.

    I meet women that love those songs and know all the words. Those songs were hits. Somebody is buying those songs and concert tickets.

    That “Whip and Nay Nay” song really burns my biscuits.

    I won’t even post the video because I can’t stand the thought of even thinking about trying to find it.

    I dont hate this because I barely know it. I think the hate comes from being subjected to it repeatedly. All my hate comes from pre internet days when I was stuck with other people and they didnt want me changing the station or from mtv. I got really good at recognizing a song I hated and changing the channel before anyone else could recognize it and say "HEY, I wanted to hear that". Now that I havent been in that situation for 20 years I can stomach a lot of the old stuff now. Or maybe I just mellowed. Spend my energy hating bad politicians now. :)

    The undocumented or buried cause of incidents of "going postal" some say, may be linked to a Manchurian candidate type of program through subliminally coded messages in these pop songs.

    Thats why they were repeated so often so the trained subjects would receive the trigger stimulus.

    So the story goes, the program was deemed a failure after several cases of seemingly unrelated and uncharacteristic psychotic episodes in the general population.

    More common cases of unprovoked violence was a reported urge to destroy whatever was the source of these oft repeated seemingly harmless songs.

    these are just conspiracy theories and random coincidences that come together, I suppose.
