They are usually played in public when you can't avoid them.
I never again want to hear:

Someone Like You by Adele (it's guaranteed that I'll have to, seeing as it's still played constantly, everywhere).

It's fine if your 10 years old, but it's the worst song of the year.
It's awful

Cher Lloyd - Swagger Jagger
That was the first song that sprang to mind when I read the title thread!

I hope I'd never have to listen to the following again:

Girls Aloud - Biology (I was subjected to this by a friend, who thought it was excellent.)

Girls Aloud - Can't Speak French (again, I was subjected to this by the same friend, who thought it was excellent too.)

Pussycat Dolls - Stickwitu.

Nicki Minaj - Starship.

Daddy Yankee - Gasolina (absolute pants and IIRC some radio DJs tipped this to get to #1).

Take That - Shine (this was unavoidable for quite a while).

Mika - Lollipop (remember that friend who thought the Girls Aloud tracks I mentioned were good? Well he also thought this was a brilliant song).

Ultrabeat - Pretty Green Eyes.

Daniel Bedingfield - If You're Not The One.

Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen (sadly this will be one I'll find it the hardest to never have to listen to again!)

Jeff Beck - Hi Ho Silver Lining

Las Ketchup - The Ketchup Song

Eiffel 65 - Blue (I think I'm the sole person out of my group of friends who hated this at the time and loathe it now).

50 Cent - Outta Control (I was having a great night out with friends and the DJ at the nightclub played it immediately after fantastic, upbeat, party music - it was the first time I've ever seen that many people leave a dancefloor at a club)

The Source ft. Candi Staton - You Got The Love (The Now Voyager Mix) - I absolutely love the original bootleg, Eren's bootleg and the various early 1990s mixes of this track but I really don't like the Now Voyager mix. My favourite version is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n4enuTkVZc

The Beautiful South made excellent songs and the album 'Quench,' which 'Perfect 10' came from, featured some great ones. I actually saw them live when they were promoting the 'Quench' album - a brilliant concert at Bath Pavilion. I still think 'The Lure of the Sea' should have been released as a single. 'How Long's A Tear Take To Dry' was the strongest single from the 'Quench' album IMO. However, I think 'Perfect 10' is one of their most overplayed tracks.

Of all the usual I hear most frequently, for some reason I still love 'Rotterdam.' It's tracks like 'My Book,' 'You Keep It All In,' 'I'll Sail This Ship Alone,' 'Liar's Bar' and 'Bell Bottomed Tear' that should be played more often.

The Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling

Yeah that's become something of a wedding party/disco for most occasions standard. I've been to a few parties this year and it's been played at all of them: one was a 50th birthday party and the birthday girl wasn't impressed! I only hope it's not one that's still being played in 10 years' time because it is a boring track. I often thought 'Sex Bomb' and 'Livin' La Vida Loca' would still be played at most parties 10 years down the line but thankfully they've largely been put to one side now.

^^That is bad. It's too repetitive to play more than once. Even if you played it twice people would (rightly in my opinion) say it had been played over and over again. When I was involved with DJiing at weddings and the like, I never played a track more than once in a night. If there were really popular tracks that I felt people might ask to be played a second time if I'd played them early in the evening, I always kept them behind until the party was in full swing.
People would assume your music collection wasn't up to much if you had to repeat something.

I've met quite a few DJs who will tell you that there's only about 15 or maybe 20 songs (sometimes fewer) that get people up dancing, which is a load of rubbish! If that were the case, you could use up most of that 'magic 20' with Bob Marley songs as one example.

Are the Dixie Chicks a pop group? That may be how they are classified now, but when they first started getting played on the radio in late 1997, they were played on country radio stations.

Sometime after the year 2003, they eventually left country music after they found out that everyone else in the industry had the right and the freedom to disagree with what they stood for.

God bless you always!!!

I also find I Gotta Feeling irritating and hate Shine. My possible worst song of all-time is Bobby Gentry's I'll Never Fall in Love Again as for years it has depressed me every time I hear it.

I've been thinking about this thread and have recalled songs from the last couple of years that I hated from the word go. Can I also add the following to my earlier suggestions, please?:

Sandi Thom - I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker - I was one of very few who thought this was a stupid song at the time. I don't think I've ever had as many discussions and debates with friends about a song as I did with this one. I got told 'well she's being quirky - she's juxtaposing punks with hippies blah blah blah.' Well, ok, but leaving all of that 'she's being ironic, she's saying she wishes she was in an era where she could truly rebel blah blah' aside, why was it released with a really bland, understated, barely audible guitar and tambourine arrangement? The lyrics were not "inventive" either - this was something I got told by friends that really grated at the time. There was a review in 2006 by a blogger, which I agree with, about this song: http://andrewsteele.co.uk/reviews/iwishiwasapunkrocker/


James Blunt - You're Beautiful - I think this was the 2005 equivalent of Chris de Burgh's 'Lady in Red' in terms of last song of the night.

Akon - Lonely - anything that sounds like Pinky & Perky should not be a big hit.

David Guetta ft. Akon - Sexy Chick

Pitbull ft.Ne-Yo et al. - Give Me Everything (I really hate songs like this). Plus, whenever I hear 'Pitbull' being mentioned, I can't help but remember the episode of Frasier when Daphne goes on a date with Bulldog, gets a bit drunk and as he's pulled out of the limo, she calls out something like "I had a lovely time Pitbull!"

Ironik ft. Chipmunk & Elton John - Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer) - a horrid track featuring a sample from a classic song.



I'm sure there will be more to follow!

WUT do ya git when ya falls in lurve? I once had the misfortune of hearing some woman sing this at a karaoke night and I swear that she pronounced the lyrics as I've just typed them! It's not one I particularly enjoy listening to either.

There are a few songs I could do without hearing ever again because they make me feel glum too. One of them is 'Everybody Hurts' by R.E.M.
