    Songs you love to hate

    What are some of the 80's songs you just can't stand, and wonder
    who likes them anyway?

    this is one that just irks me. I heard part of the tune in a Volkswagon commercial, and that was ok, but the entire song,

    '88 Lines and 44 women'

    who wants to hear about everyone he's supposedly had?
    (like he remembers all their names
    I just hope he used protection.

    I absolutely HATE the song 'Don't Worry, Be Happy', there's just no damn excuse for that damn song. The person who decided to attach that song to the singing bass has a special spot in hell for all I'm concerned 'Caribbean Queen' fits right in with that suck fest. If this isn't just regulated to eighties songs, I'll leave now to spare you all the frenzy I'll work myself into over Limp Bizkit and Eminem

    Too easy. I absolutely DESPISE these 80's jamz. They are too played out. I have to play them though(unfortuantely ). I try to avoid these at ALL costs . I know it sounds mean, but I usually charge people to play these monstrocities . Just about anything else? I'll gladly play for free.


    Heres a smidgeon:

    The Romantics-what i like about you
    Dexy's midnight runners_come on eileen
    Joan Jett-I love rock and roll
    B-52's-Loveshack
    Toni Basil-Mickey
    Wang Chung-Everybody have fun tonight
    Wham-Wake me up befor you gogo
    AC/DC-You shook me all night long
    Beasties-Fight for your right

    Radio/clubs have killed alot of these songs due to overplay. No Offense, but ALOT of 80's stations only stick to limited playlists and they murder crappy songs and run them into the ground, and they NEVER play enough good music.

    Me? When I spin, I ALWAYS play stuff no one's playing. Mostly b/c/d sides of something. or the "minor" hits. Those usually go over big time.

    I never understood the appeal of songs like: come on eileen or mickey? but that's just me.

    and 'Walking on sunshine', I agree.

    every song listed in each post I can't stand.
    Agreed, DJJeff, the B sides and non hits are the best. I'd charge people, too for the lame ones. lol

    I think if I hear Tainted Love one more time, I could possibly go postal.

    Poor Marc Almond, he didn't know it'd get so abused and overplayed. He should have made it bigger with Torch or Tears Run Rings. :P

    Amen!!!!! LMFAO. I have to sit through that song and crappy dancing from people who form "circles" on the dancefloor and go apeshit when I play this. Drives me to drink almost. I just laugh.

    Thats what i was talking about when i said radio/clubs killed songs like this. It's actually a decent song, but those things have KILLED it beyond repair. They're labeled as "80's mega hits" by people who usually think thats all an 80's jock will spin(and they usually do giving them that illusion)?? Not true. I actually despise the song now. I stick to stuff people havent heard in a while, or have never heard. Most 80's /stations/clubs just play the same 40-50 songs a day and dont deviate from those, so their whole image is killed by fans who think" uh oh, here comes another sunglasses at night song"( I actually like this song, but radio's destroyed it by playing it 75 times a day which makes it crappy to most 80's fans). We have an 80's station here in Las vegas, NV and I laugh out loud at some of the garbage they play. I love it because it's 80's music mind you, and even though it's "garbage" to me, it's still better than anything on the radio now, I just dont want to hear Oh Mickey by toni basil 300 times a day.


    No offense to anyone, but when I say something like"this 80's station is crappy", I dont mean that literally. I mean that just about EVERY one of them falls into the same"redundancy" with their playlists. They ruin some songs and make you want to go down to the local PO and go mental from hearing "come on eileen" 50 times a day. But, some of the lesser known hits, or hits that might not have been too popular, they stay away from them. I called that station one time and asked them to play( are you sitting down??)"lets go to bed" by the cure...and the fool, who answered the phone said this" we cant play stuff like that", so, my first reaction was"why?" "well, we voice tracked that song and dozens more from other groups, and no one we polled had ever heard of it, so we dont play those songs".

    WTF???? this is what i mean when I say that most 80s stations/clubs murder certain songs. They make you literally despise them, and they never seem to play the good stuff.

    I cant stand Volkswagon song either. I worked at a record store in '82 and they played that stupid song on the instore play list.

    Others:
    99 Luftballoons
    Lady by Kenny Rogers
    Dont Worry Be Happy
    Penny Lover by Lionel Richie (anything by him )

    and one that everyone seems to like, that I cant stand is Jessie's Girl...Thanks to retro djs who spin it every 2 hours ! I used to like that song.

    Re: Songs you love to hate

    Oh NO!!
    I love those Lionel Richie songs!!


    jk
    yeah, I can relate, I didn't like them then, either.

    and 'Come on Eileen' and UB40's 'Red, red wine', I know..
    once was enough!


    just glad I'm not the only one...

    and 'what you need'... (gag me)
    any top 40 hit from them makes me wanna hurl.
    they did have some other great songs, sadly enough.

    ok, 'Carribean Queen' I know, but I do like 'Loverboy' from him, Darkhaven

    and yeah, Emimen (m&n) and Limp... you said it!
