Disney Girls. Second-rate schmaltz, and not much of a melody either.

Well said! Smb. said really dumb thing in its defense - to paraphrase, it's objectively good song if it's covered by popular musicians (A. Garfunkel & C. Elliot). Can you believe that?

"Be With Me" has never done anything for me.

Well anything would sound good sung by Art Garfunkel's golden throat. It's a cheesy song, but  Garfunkel is the far superior singer and does a better job of selling it that Bruce ever could. But no, I don't agree that it's an "objectively good" song. It's pure corn.

This came up on another thread, but "Crack At Your Love" on BB85.  It's generally considered one of the better tracks on the album but I just can't stand it.  It sounds like a Casio demo.  It lays there and dies.

"Sunshine" is just a two chord bleah that goes on FOREVER.

But my greatest apostasy is "Feel Flows."  It has grown on me over the years - I no longer hate it, I have actually grown to like it - but it sure took a long time to warm to. 

I guess tediousness is a common thread running through all those three songs.

Agree on all three -

'Casio Demo' is probably the best nano-review I ever read.

Most of Pacific Ocean Blue - apart from River Song I don't get the fuss at all.
Rio Grande
Almost all the cover songs - whenever they play a live cover I will them to move on, mourning whichever piece of BW magic I could imagine that could have been played in its place. Even when the arrangement is great, their covers lack essential BB character for me.

1. Don't Worry Baby
2. Darlin
3. Cotton Fields
4. Add Some Music
5. That's Why God Made the Radio

Not that I thin any of these songs suck, but I find them a bit boring.
