Most hated song

Many threads on here about great albums, long lost gems etc.

However, I have just one song that I hate so much that the mearest hint of hearing it anywhere is guarenteed to make me switch channels, radio stations, walk out of where it is being played.

The demon is: -

Seasons in the sun by Terry Jacks. It is the creepiest piece of music I have ever heard.

What song do you loath?

Easy. Has always been Sugar Sugar by the Archies.

I have no idea why, but I loathed it when it came out &, if anything, the loathing has grown over the years!

Come on Eileen, Denys Midnight Runners. Hurt my finger on the radio on/off button once. Couldn’t get to stop playing quick enough!

100% in agreement @Ackers . Awful, awful song.

However, “Fairytale of New York” by Pogues/McColl, “Bloody Brown Bloody Eyed Bloody Girl” by Van Bloody Morrison, Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and “True” by Spandau Ballet run it very close. All examples of cretinous swill disguised as music.

Lovely Day, Bill Withers is another absolute diatribe of a song.

I can see this thread as being the musical equivalent of hitting a tree with a frying pan. Feels good to let of some steam.

2 choices:

When I’m Calling You by Slim Whitman. My father had a phase and drove me completely mad. Imagine wanting to listen to Buzzcocks and Stranglers but getting Slim Whitman

The Power of Love by Jennifer Rush. When I was a student the next door neighbour’s wife left him and for weeks on end he played this bloody song day and night. I was ready to commit murder

In the 1980’s one of the Hi Fi monthly’s, perhaps Popular Hi Fi?, quite often included Roger Whittaker 45s & EPs as free gifts because ‘of his clear vocals & good recording technique’.

Naim probably recommended them to demonstrate the fine qualities of their equipment!

This post was supposed to reply to the OP - Seasons In The Sun, Terry Jacks.

Except… as small children we used to paraphrase that song with a tune to make another naughty childish song. I am not sure if anybody else sang this down south, maybe it was just a Kent thing.

“We have joy, we have fun flicking bogeys at the sun, but the sun was too hot and turned them into snott.”

Didn’t really work very well, but it summed that up.
