this one...I cant stand it!

it sounds like they're aiming for the potential in perpetuity advert market, along the lines of Bad Day ( Secrets of writing a 'wallpaper' hit http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/7518881.stm )

...bland , bland and more bland. And not just bland, bloomin' annoying too.

Almost want to punch him at specific points during this song, "yes" aagghh :banghead:

A subject close to my heart. :o

As I've just mentioned in another thread, my radio station of choice, which I put on when I get up and I'm faffing about in the kitchen and also it's on all day in the wagon, is Galaxy 105, a dance/R&B music station. For the most part of it, I like a lot of what they play, but some of the songs really annoy me very, very much. :x There is also a lot of repetition of the ones I don't like too. :x

I cannot stand 'Madcon' and the song Beggin'. :x The proper videos all seem to have embedding disabled, so I had to resort to this one. It's still the same awful song, mind...



I can't bloody stand it at all. Just hearing one tiny bit of it is enough to make me want to commit atrocities. :x :o

There are a few others I can't stand as well, but I can't think of them right now. :x

Annoyingly though, I've caught myself singing along to songs I can't stand. :o Is it just me who does this? I was singing along to Beggin' whilst out in the lorry the other day and I don't even like the ruddy song. :x :o

I posted that very song Whirlie in the awful songs thread. Totally vapid, whiney, pop star wannabe junk.

Here's another...



...the music's ripped off and the lyrics are as stupid and pretentious as anything I've heard in years (apart from maybe the Kooks).

Foo foo. Let's all foo foo.

Yeah it is pretty grim.

Certainly not a tune that's gonna be on any compilations in 30 years time. :)

agghhhh. what a nightmare. Lynard Skynard are back in the album chart( presumably due to this song?), Freebird was played in full on the Chart Show on Sunday. Hadnt heard it in ages.

The same old Euro cheese handbag dance pop that sounds like a somebody has hit the demo button on a Casio keyboard!

A little vague sorry!

I quite like the Kid Rock song :oops:

I really dislike Scouting for Girls at the moment, all their songs sound the same. Also don't like "American Boy" - reminds me of some dreadful late 70s/early 80s shite.
