The Most Annoying Song of All Time

Couple of things I just wanted to say.

 

First, I stopped in to say that, while it took many decades, I finally came to realize that two primary differences between "decent music" and "utter cap" are repetition and volume.  Without either of those in excess, it seems most music becomes bearable.  The entire music industry, perversely, is the reason that we absolutely hate all the songs they want us to love.  Music is not marriage!  The Stockholm Syndrome does _not_ apply!

 

 

At least, I _was_ going to say exactly that.  I was going to say exactly that as I waded through every sample given on this thread, right up until I clicked that little tiny picture above.

 

 

That changed my mind.  I've never heard that song before, and I don't generally keep my computer's volume particularly loud.  In spite of that, that song is quite possibly once of the worst things I've ever exposed myself to.  I have no idea how it got on the charts at all.  😕

 

Cheers for posting.

Not addressed to anyone in particular, just my thoughts:

There are aspects of the music industry machine that are annoying.  Yes.  However, I find 'music snobbery' to be equally annoying.  Yeesh, let people like what they like and get off that judgmental pedestal.

I'd also like to mention songs that are really just a few lines of music played over and over again, repeatedly, over and over again, repeatedly, over and over again.  This includes [snip] any "hit" by George Harrison.

 

To the point that Weird Al parodied him with "(This Song's Just) Six Words Long."

Given that the source song was a cover first recorded in 1962, it's hard to attribute those lyrics  to George Harrison.

Well, I guess it's more accurate to say that Weird Al parodied the song, though it looks like George Harrison's cover version did remove a verse that was in the James Ray 1962 version, making Harrison's cover seem (at least to me) even more repetitive than the original.

Remember what I said about being deliberately annoying rather than anyone of us finding them annoying ?

 

And coincidentally also from Ireland. And the only reason that this group got anywhere near a record contract is that two of the girls are sisters of one of Boyzone's members. And it got to No1.
