    These are songs that make you want to shove chop sticks in your ear.

    Werewolves of London???? How dare you! Warren Zevon is an amazing artist, and while I admit yes WofL can become annoying after hearing millions of times it is still a great song.

    As for Candy Man and Afternoon Delight they're both songs I find hilarious. Candy Man because of an episode of Scrubs in which JD imagines himself as the candy man.

    Perhaps you dont recall the extremely annoying songs of Britney Spears, Nsync, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees that still haunt my nightmares of 1998-2000.

    If you want an annoying Zevon song it's "A Certain Girl".

    Whats her name? I cant tell ya.... ahh.

    Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening displeasure, please give it up for William Hung and "She Bangs".

    Remember DEVO and that colossal hit 'Whip It'? I hated that song.

    It is so bad I don't even want to post it. I agree with your first three choices also.

    Isn't that mighty Jungle and not muddy Jungle? Inquiring minds must know. I liked that song.

    I don't mind Werewolves of London so much. It can become annoying after a while but it is far from my number one pick. I will say though in that video you posted the bass player is playing my bass - or at least it looks just like mine.
     
  16. ChristopherPaul

    ChristopherPaul Puritan Board Senior

    Now I just disagree with this one. Dr. Hook? Come on!

    I remember Sylvia's Mother Says. What a whiny, crying, whimpering song. You got my vote for that one.

    Warren Zevon was a musical genius.

    You take that back sirrah!

    Shoving chopsticks in my ears? Yes, there are songs that would make me do it.

    If I could do a Comiskey Park "disco demolition-type" explosion of every copy of this song that exists on this planet, just so it would never again be heard by human ears, I would:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDL02th72u4]YouTube - America - A Horse With No Name[/ame]

    And if I happened to do it in a manner that violated local fire ordinances, I would glady pay the fine and/or do the time... :lol:

    I couldn't even stand more than 10 seconds of this video while hunting it up for you guys.

    Here's a few more of what I deem stinkeroos:

    "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young (not to be confused with "Band of Gold" by Freda Payne, which is great, in my opinion).

    "In the Year 2525" by Zager and Evans.

    "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum.

    "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" by the Four Seasons... :barfy:

    To whomever above I said "thanks," that means I also hate the song you so "honored" by mentioning or posting it on this ever-so-useful thread... :D

    Yeah, I never found any Zevon songs particularly annoying. Having said that, I wasn't around when most of them were released. For all I know, they could have been played on the radio repeatedly, thus now making the listen go crazy at the first two notes of "Warewolves of London".

    Randy, you're right:

    I don't know how that "mad" smilie got on the top of this post... I don't mean for it to be there. Please disregard it.

    I dunno, George Harrison's 80's solo album was pretty wretched.

    One of the funniest Weird Al songs I recall was his parody of Harrison's "I got my mind set on you"...

    Randy, it might well be "mighty jungle", I like the song, but know others find it annoying!

    Anything by Gilbert O'Sullivan

    All those dreadfully sentimental songs about dying young that erupted in the wake of Love Story...yeeechh!

    I love The Wall by Pink Floyd. It is one of my all time favorite albums. I have felt many of those struggles that the album portrays. But that is another Story.

    Here is another for the list of very irritating blurbs on the music scene. Joy to the World
