On the themes currently running through Mumsnet at the moment, I have a total hatred of 2 songs, not just dislike/turn off the radion but actual cringe when I hear them played at parties and will walk off the dance floor....I dislike them so much!

My most HATED is Robin S - Show me Love - it gives me the chills!

Closely followed by 'You Got The Love'
Candi Staton/Florence/whomever else thinks it's a good idea to cover this drivel!

Tell me yours! (Secretly hopes someone also hates this rubbish)!

Love Shack by the B52s - always hated it. The tune, the vocals, everything.

Also, that song by The Fugees that had the line 'One Time, Two Times, Three Times, Four Times' - by the time it got to 'Four Times', I was ready to throw something.

Your Song. Dreadful tosh made far worse in bad cover versions (looking particularly at you, Ellie Goulding).

Relight My Fire. Gives me a rushing feel in my jaw just like spiders do. Bleurgh.

It Started with a Kiss by Hot Chocolate. Creepy af.

Don't know what it's called but there was a song released some time in the last decade that had a line like 'just give me my hug' in. Was all about breaking up but this creep just wouldn't stop insisting on more physical contact before he'd finally fuck off. Gave me the total heebie-jeebies.

Angels by Robbie Williams. Not sure why. Just cringe.

Definitely agree with the Fugees and their 'many times' shite. Majorly irritating. Just Fuck off already!

Man's not hot. Big Shaq I think? Maybe I've just finally reached an age where some stuff is all a bit Emporors new clothes to me...

Most by Adele to be honest.
Shitty love songs.

Twocatsonebaby Sun 18-Feb-18 18:16:39

OP I love Florence. But that song ugh!

That one by the streets.
"Has it come to this? Wind down your aerial you're listening to the streets"

You realise “man’s not hot” is a joke right? Big Shaq is a comedy creation.

Anything by Queen. Novelty act with novelty songs

"I believe in a thing called love" by the fucking darkness.

Fuck you, fucking darkness and your squawky old woman voice. It's not funny. It's just shit!

Also Louis Armstrong "all the time in the world" makes me feel all stabby.

Twocatsonebaby Sun 18-Feb-18 18:21:25

Doris I hated Queen growing up. Still think bo rap is the most overrated song in the entire world. But Freddie had magnificent vocals.

Twocatsonebaby Sun 18-Feb-18 18:22:29

My dp listens to some sort of pirate song about sea men (obviously a euphemism) and one about a man putting bananas away and getting tea all over his balls hmm
He has very questionable taste.

DorisDangleberry Sun 18-Feb-18 18:23:54

Bohemian Rhapsody is three poor songs inexpertly knife and forked together with over the top guitar noodling

Mine is the zephyr song by RHCP

AnyFucker Sun 18-Feb-18 18:30:22

hoopdeloop Sun 18-Feb-18 18:31:36

I hate John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ and Whitney Houston’s version of ‘I will always love you’

Stoptherideiwannagetoff Sun 18-Feb-18 18:31:43

Hernameisdeborah Sun 18-Feb-18 18:32:21

What's Up by Four Non Blondes
Perfect 10 (i think that's what it's called) by The Beautiful Fucking South

lightoflaluna Sun 18-Feb-18 18:46:09

Happy by Pharrell and Uptown Funk


Dljlr Sun 18-Feb-18 19:03:38

CrumpetsWithCheese that's the one! Eurgh!

Piffle11 Sun 18-Feb-18 19:07:47

Karma Chameleon gives me the rage.
Everybody's Free by Rozalla has a similar effect.

Tapandgo Sun 18-Feb-18 19:09:13

God Save The Queen

Iheartdogs Sun 18-Feb-18 19:10:35

"Power Of Love" - Jennifer Rush.
