Most annoying bit in a song

Post by 4:20 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 1:22 pm

I hate the song 'Love Shack' by the B52's, had no option but to listen to it in the supermarket yesterday but regardless of how much I hate that song, there's a bit in it that makes me want to plug my ears with Gorilla Glue. It's the bit where Cindy Wilson goes "Tin roof, rusted" after the bloke goes "you're what?!?".
That and any song with 'woah-oh-oh' in it, examples https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rEGBElz0brM

Any song which has siren type noises in it (or phone ringing) - esp when I am driving! Some annoying adverts on the radio guilty of this - does my 'schwad' in.

The whole song is the most annoying bit, it is up there with that "you're gorgeous" shite from a few year back.

People who like either song should have to carry visible ID to let others know to avoid them

A song which used to attract certified bangers to the Chicago Rock dancefloor like flies on the proverbial.

Not a song but the adverts for the Ring Video doorbell do my head in. That chime is so annoying - I knock instead when I visit my Mums!!

Pauls bit in “A Day In The Life”. I mean it’s a brilliant song don’t get me wrong. But if Lennon had of wrote a proper middle for his parts, it’d be better imho. His raw voice, and saw strumming were superb on it.

I have two that trigger me :
- The Par-par-par-par-pa-pa noise at the start of that bloody awful Shania Twain song "Man, I Feel like a Woman" .....beloved of hen nights and dancers-around-handbags it makes me want to tear my ears off.
- The feeble ting ting of xylophone at the start of "Seven Years Old" by Lukas Graham. I absolutely loathe that record and just that particular sound has me diving for the off switch of the radio.

I like the B52s though..the album Love Shack is on, Cosmic Thing, is a cracker !

Lead vocals when they sing a lyric and attach a 'yeah' at the end... or they chuck in a 'yeah' to fill a gap. It's like they're making the song all about them.

Female leads are the worst for it

Any song in one of those car adverts, where they slow it down and have some no mark female singing it and thus ruining it.

'Born to be wild' and 'Wonderwall' to give just two examples.

The bit where it goes 1,2,3 then a weird sound that I can't quite workout how you'd even decipher how to spell it.

There's one moment in one of the greatest songs of the 80's where there's a nod to 'Relax' by 'Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
Spoils one of the all time truly great songs.

I'm sure you'd agree... ;)

The start of The Groover where they chant "T.R.E.X" is absolutely naff as and ruins a more than decent song!

The intro to Ride on Time by Black Box. It's just some bint yelling random notes. About as musical as diarrhea.

Oh, and 'Park life' the whole song but particularly the chorus. It's shite but everyone seems to love it.

All of breakfast at Tiffany's. The lyrics are so bad. It's just a boring conversation between a couple.

Exactly. A post like that is just so more annoying than anything to do with the original thread.

The post about Paul McCartney’s contribution to A Day in the Life is equally annoying.
