Songs I dislike so much that some might use the word hate: A list

I was listening to the radio the other day while I was ironing a few things (thanks again, Dad, for the awesome ironing board cabinet!) and Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping" came on. And whadda ya know, I dislike it as much as I did the day it came out. I have been disliking this song for over a decade.

Other songs that I dislike to varying degrees and in no particular order:
  • Red Red Wine, UB40
  • Sexual Healing, Marvin Gaye
  • Bad Day, Daniel Powter
  • You're Beautiful, James Blunt
  • Unwritten, Natasha Bedingfield
  • Pretty much anything by Pink, Amy Winehouse, or Katy Perry
I'm sure there are a lot more, but these are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Any time they come on the radio, I'll change the channel. I dislike them with a perhaps unnecessary passion. Any song that grates on your nerves like nails on chalkboard?


  1. You TOTALLY called it with Red Red Wine. BARF!!!!!! Anything reggae, really. Hrm... Sex and Candy always sounded dumb to me.

  2. Perhaps I am biased because I love Neil Diamond and he wrote Red, Red Wine but it doesn't make me want to hurl. He has much better ones, true.
    I don't love rap, pretty much ever. The more profanity in a song the less I like it.


Be nice.
