Ugh! Not That Song Again!

It's been a little slow on my blog lately. I've decided to post some songs that I hate but the rest of the world seems to love.

Most of these are from the early 90's. All my junior high friends seemed to love these songs and I would be over retching in the corner. (well...maybe not,but you catch my drift) I'm sure some of you may read these and think,"What the...??? Stacey,how could you NOT like that song??" and I will say, "Because it is like fingernails on a chalkboard,my friend. These songs just grate on my nerves."

"Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Conner.
I despise this song. It used to play on the radio over and over when I was in junior high. My best friend and I always made fun of "Shavehead" and her song. It wasn't very nice,but the song made me want to stick things in my eyes. For real.

"Eternal Flame" by The Bangles.
Now before you say anything,yes I know...it's such a tender song to you. But to me it was "Meh."

"As I Lay Me Down To Sleep" by Sophie B. Hawkins

"What I Am" by Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians

"I'll Stand By You" by Pretenders

Any of the songs by Fine Young Cannibals.
I'm still haunted by the singer's voice.

"Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears For Fears

"All Around the World" by Lisa Stansfield

"Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" by Stevie B

"Tom's Diner" by DNA and Suzanne Vega

"Barbie Girl" by Aqua

"You're Still the One" by Shania Twain

"Adia" by Sarah McLachlan

"Believe" by Cher

"Kiss Me" by Sixpence None The Richer

On the plus side,going back to look for some of these songs reminded me of the songs I loved when I was younger. Score!

9 people love me:

I like a lot of those songs... but I never listened to the radio when I was young so they were never "killed" by overplaying for me ;) I only hear them occasionally. So where's your song of songs you love???

"Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Conner. I'm 100% with you on.

but "Eternal Flame" by The Bangles...

ha ha I just skimmed the songs before reading the post and I felt like aww that Stacey really likes some sweet songs even though yes I was gagging at some of them

Super Happy Girl said...

Stacey,how could you NOT like that song??
>:)

Eternal flame is so corny it's not even funny.
Barnie Girl: Ugh, talk about bubble gum junk.

Hey, I want to know about the songs you love :)

Millie said...

Amen on everything but "Kiss Me" because it's one of Bunny's faves, and I think that's totally sweet.

Everything else, dump.

Klin said...

These songs I totally agree with you on.

"Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Conner. We just made of it by singing along in our own demented way...LOL

Any of the songs by Fine Young Cannibals.
I need a memory jog here..


"Barbie Girl" by Aqua
Just shoot me already....I think cruel and evil thoughts when I hear this song.

"Adia" by Sarah McLachlan
Well it's pretty, but what's the message?


These I've never even heard and that's weird cause music is my life.

"Eternal Flame" by The Bangles.

"As I Lay Me Down To Sleep" by Sophie B. Hawkins

"What I Am" by Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians

"Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears For Fears

"All Around the World" by Lisa Stansfield

"Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" by Stevie B

"Tom's Diner" by DNA and Suzanne Vega

The others I can tolerate, but don't listen to that often; except for "You're still the one" cause Hubs is still the one.

I have a soft spot for The Pretenders, but I am in 100% agreement with you on the rest.

Jen said...

I like Kiss Me, but the others I could live without too.
I too want to hear the ones you do like!
