    Old time rock n roll by Seger. It’s an awful awful awful song.

    Sweet home Alabama, it’s daggers to my brain.

    Too many to list. You Light Up My Life is near the top of my irritating songs list. If Ever I See You Again, same composer, is both the worst movie and the worst song ever. Pure neurosis in song form. Its composer, Joseph Brooks came across as the ultimate narcissist in the movie If Ever I See You Again. I was shocked to learn that he committed suicide (instead of facing trial after an indictment for 91 counts of rape). I would have thought that his ego would have formed a black hole and he would have simply collapsed into his own ego. :)

    Stand By Your Man is one of the worst ever.

    While I admired Barry Manilow's harmonic sense, he knew how to write great changes, his solo career was about as phony as it gets. That reverb-drenched voice was pretty annoying.

    The Bay City Rollers were simply hideous.

    True. Not even sad but true; just true.

    I couldn't agree more. That was pretty bad. There was a country song about a Skip A Dee Doo Dah Day (Donna Fargo's The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA) which I find excruciating.

    Personally, I’d rather hear Cher sing the Jesse James song than hear any of these.

    So many of these songs I actually like but then again I don't hear them all the time. The first one up that you hear from Disney is a favorite. And yes I even like Sugar by the Archies. Cher you can keep, I can't stand her tunes. I think this is more of a what songs irritate what generations thing that an all around annoying thing. I think if I knew the name of the songs I really can't stand wI would find most have been made in the last 20 years. Right now all I have going through my head is a line form a very irritating song with some nasty out of tune electronic horn blaring and some guy grunting, We're going down, then more horn!

    I considered him filler music at the time, the music wasn't so bad I wanted to hurl but it also wasn't coin worthy. Truth is trying to think of songs I can't stand doesn't work well because I always avoid them and never took the time to learn their name.
