Modern Folk Quartet - This Could Be the Night (though Brian's v-n was fairly fine)
The Everly Brothers - Cathy's Clown (just no)


This is a tragedy.
Agreed, both are american classics.

Whitney Houston: 'I Will Always Love You'

What I dislike about this is the fact that the general public seem to be unaware that this is actually a Dolly Parton song, not only that but the original message of the song was killed in the context of that god-awful film.

The 1st that came to mind:

Culture Club - Karma Chameleon (I like the voice of the lead singer, it's stylish in its own way, however, that's not enough for liking the band)
Engelbert Humperdinck - Red Roses for My Lady (can't believe that his boring "Release Me" won over Beatles song)
Modern Folk Quartet - This Could Be the Night (though Brian's v-n was fairly fine)
Radio Stars - Dirty Pictures
Chris Bell - I am the Cosmos
Lada Edmund-Jr. - The Larue (I know that she's not a singer at the 1st place, but I very disliked that ditty immediately)
The Cardigans - Lovefool
Chris De Burgh - The Lady in Red
Starland Vocal Band - Afternoon Delight (incredibly boring)
Bonnie Tyler - A Rockin' Good Way
The Everly Brothers - Cathy's Clown (just no)
Los Lobos - La Bamba
Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree
Ace of Base - It's a Beautiful Life

I would also add any songs by Britney Spears, James Blunt (I very much hate his voice!), Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera & already mentioned Aqua which were/are frequently played on the radio. And many other 80s/2000s songs by various 1-star artists.

Re Macarena: I first heard it when we danced to it in the kindergarten, at around 5-6 years old. It was a real fun & we were very stylishly dressed. So the song brings at least nice memories. Even if now I don't consider it as any good than then. The girl's & guy's repetitive vocs are horrendous.

I love the Cardigans Sad

Lou Bega, Mambo No.5. was played way too many times in the late 90s-early 2000s. I fain forgot it. Then I hear it today on the radio - 'thanks', whoever you are.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Horrible Songs by Horrible (Or Not So Great) Artists??

Put on top 40 radio today , and this list fills up quickly. 

Here's a few recent earworms

MacLemore - Downtown - Wasn't rapping about a thrift shop enough?

Ariana Grande - She just put out an awful song where she oversings which sounds just like the horrible song where she oversings that came out last summer. 

5th Harmony - Worth It - For anyone who thought that The Spice Girls were annoying.

Good catch. It ruins a what could be decent song & performance. hint: Christina Aguilera. Mariah & Whitney are nothing in compare.

Add Kelly Clarkson to that list.  Last month I kept hearing a version of her singing Run Run Rudolph that was absolutely dreadful.

"Agadoo", Sagarossa (Saragossa?) Band (idiocy)
"Abracadabra", Steve Miller (tedious)
"Everything I Do", Bryan Adams (forget Bruce Johnston)
Anything by Modern Talking (it's funnily super popular band with people here)
"Paradise", Phoebe Cates (cheesy)
"Venus", Shocking Blue (chaps in Beatles.ru get real crazy about this song/ the main singer)
"YMCA", Village People (dumb)

Anything sung by Gwen Stefani . If you don't mind the synesthetic description, her voice sounds like wobbly caramel to me. Which isn't a good sound  Tongue

Sitting at my computer laughing at this. LOL  Really, I just lack the music jargon to be able to describe exactly what quality it is I don't like about her voice, so wobbly caramel it is.

LOL No worries. I used to dig her voice, but right around 2001 she lost the quirkiness about her voice that I love. Actually I had quite a bit of vibrato to my voice before my first stroke 7 years ago, had to relearn how to sing again and for some reason now at the age of 40 I sound better than I have since, oh, I dunno, maybe 20?

Absolutely. Particularly with the U.S. National Anthem. Just sing the dang thing!

I had a musician friend who, finding out that he and his wife were going to have a daughter, said that he was thinking of naming her "Melisma." Thankfully they reconsidered : -)

I don't usually pay attention to top 40 pop, it's mostly crap but usually only mildly annoying. I do get miffed when a sample of a classic song is used as the hook or the chorus in a new song that is clearly inferior. Add a sparkle to a turd and it's still a turd. Hearing those two abominations just makes me want to blast the original songs they sampled.
