Seems like there’s always a couple of Top 40 songs that just drive me insane, which sucks because they’re constantly playing and so they’re really hard to avoid!
Currently, I’m not a fan at all of that song “Am I Wrong”. I don’t really know WHY I can’t stand it … something about the syncopated rhythm maybe? But either way, I hate it and have to change the station every time it comes on.
Also can’t stand the new Paramore song “Ain’t it Fun”. Haha I think I’ve just been ‘living in the real world’ for long enough now that the song just irritates me and makes me wish everyone would get off my lawn. And then I always get the “don’t go cryin’ to your mama” part stuck in my head for hours afterwards, like some sort of cruel prank the song insists on playing on me. AND NOW I JUST GOT IT STUCK IN MY OWN HEAD, F***.
How about you?

iarebridezilla: i hate “all of me/all of you,” by john legend. god. GO AWAY. and i also super duper hate these 2: “marry her anyway,” by that reggae guy whose name escapes me (seriously, this song just came on at work as i’m typing wtf). and “happy,” by pharrell BECAUSE IT SUCKS.
plus anything by taylor swift makes me want to cut my entire head off.

MrsHalpert: AH YES that John Legend song is also an immediate station-changer for me! I originally didn’t like the song “Rude” (the marry her anyway one) either, but I feel like I need to limit the number of songs that require me to immediately flip to another station so I forced myself to at least be okay with it. The part that still makes me mad every time, though, is that it’s not “rude” to tell someone you do not give him your blessing to marry your daughter. It’s heartbreaking, unfortunate, perhaps undeserved (though I’m interested in hearing the Dad’s side of the story), but not RUDE! Sheesh, word choice, people! LOL
I also hate Pharell’s “Happy” so it looks like we’re on the same page haha. Does that mean I hate happiness? Probably. Sigh.

iarebridezilla: if 90% of top 40 songs are equate with happiness, I hate it too. We are at least not alone in our misery.
And yes! I had the same thought about the rude song: this guy is probably disrespectful so the dad said no. Why? oh, because:
-You just showed up bright and early on Saturday to ask? How about take the man to lunch. damn.
-Dad says no (presumably for an at least reasonable reason)
-You think HE is rude…
-…yet you decide to “marry her anyway.” Uh, you seem rude.
I’ve been told to let it go, as it is just a song, but you know without music it’s a poem/writing, and I love tearing writing to analytical shreds. I do I love it.

MrsHalpert: I hate “all of me” too. My FI also had to ruin it further by pointing out that he always hangs on the word “all” in the song and drags it on longer than the other words. Like every single time he says the word all in the entire song. For some reason, that has destroyed the song for me because I can’t unhear it.
Also “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Of course, every station in my area has to play it every 30 minutes too.

BurlapnLace: see I don’t really mind Taylor Swift! I guess because for better or worse, she’s a great musician, writes everything herself, and damn if most of it isn’t catchy as hell. But she was also an acquired taste — that is, a taste I FORCED myself to acquire because otherwise I’d have to throw my car radio on the side of the road!
MrsHalpert: haha it’s possible we’ve been on WB too long because I’m right there with ya on your logic. I can just imagine that thread popping up and all the *usual suspects* (hint hint) coming in being like “YOU SOUND LIKE THE RUDE ONE HERE, NOT HIM” 😛

iarebridezilla: This dad’s response to “Rude” is BRILLIANT and he’s actually pretty damn good!!!

RedHeadKel: LOL, I like country, but almost none that is on the radio now. That stuff is some hybrid pop crap. I could listen to George Strait sing the phone book, though! Or the Zac Brown Band…my exception to the no current country sentiment.
