    I'm a complete masochist when it comes to music I hate. I crank it up and bask in my own fury. Now, this doesn't apply to music I simply don't like. There's no rush in that. Only music I utterly detest from the depths of my soul.

    Well, I almost feel bad saying this, but I cannot stand "Imagine". I'm not saying it's a bad song, it's just me. Maybe it's just too hackneyed, which isn't John Lennon's fault at all.

    Lol in high school a group of us went to lunch and the driver put on Riders of the Storm. A girl with us proclaimed it the most boring, blah, song ever.

    Imo Lennon and McCartney were only tolerable together, separate, i find them unpleasant. Like gin and tonic.

    McCartney is the gin and Lennon is the tonic.... because McCartney is slightly more palatable to my ears. Not everything mind you, but McCartney could write a good pop song without the undue influence of a slightly psychotic spouse. In his case, his spouse was not psychotic, but instead almost totally tone-deaf.:D

    Yes, I am kidding-- I was never married to either of them so I can't substantiate the well-known claims.

    This thread is exactly why I don't write songs! (Anymore.)

    I never took the time to remember the songs I don’t like I just turn them off. But I do get a kick at how well people can follow the suggested instructions form the OP.

    I don't hate this song I kind of like but until now I never heard the whole thing. I only ever heard the chorus and I thought it was a woman singing. I wouldn't want to hear it too often but once in a great while is ok.

    Out of all the hated songs posted I would be happy to have sung and sold just one of the more popular ones. I don't need to be a pro or big-time fan. I would be perfectly happy being a one-hit-wonder and making a bit of cash off of it. Or a jingle writer who got one that is used all the time. People could laugh and hate on it all they want as long as I got those royalty checks rolling in.

    There are a lot of songs I can't stand but I'll be doggone if I can think of a single name.

    Oh, I love them together. Separately, both have (in my opinion, of course), good songs and bad songs, but each one's bad songs are so for very different reasons (too way-out or too saccharine, and I don't think I need to explain who's responsible for each).

    My older sister commented, oh, about 50 years ago, that McCartney needed Lennon to keep him from descending into schmaltz, and Lennon needed McCartney to keep him from descending into obscenity. Sounds about right.

    Said by another George Harrison fan.
