There's that song...you know the one. The one that makes you cringe, sounds awful, but is seen as a classic gets played a lot. Maybe you find the singer annoying, or it goes on and on and on and on...

I like the rock version of Layla a lot but I abhor the blues version.

 

But Cocaine. Cocaine always stinks.

Freebird. It’s so slow and draggy.

She Sells Sanctuary by The Cult. Awful three chord bash. My band plays it and I just fall asleep.

Can't say that I hate this song. I think it has too much comedic value to truly hate it. But it is just so fucking stupid. lol.

 

I mean really, it's not much different than game show music. :D

 

 

It also sounds like it was recorded in 10 minutes.

Was that CBS? The ‘wrecking crew’ probably did record it in ten minutes.

ABC. But yeah, although 10 minutes is an exaggeration, pro session men can really whip this stuff out. I'm trying to find some info on the song.

 

I might also be developing an interest in game show music. God be with me. lol.

 

Btw, Three's Company was based on Man About the House, a Brit-com you're probably aware of.

If anybody listens to this, check out the junky, gurgling sound underneath everything as the song plays through. This must be a guitar run through a phaser effect with the rate set very high or maybe even two guitars with different rate settings. Hilarious.

That fucking Cranberries song. I don’t even know what it’s called. But it’s nails on a chalkboard to me. Really anything I’ve ever heard from them.

Lol. Wah-ing the shit out of it.

I think they told the singer to channel Bill Murray.

Metallica's Nothing Else Matters.

I love Metallica - been a fan since before their first record was out. But I abhor that particular song. Ugh.

And yeah, when I saw them in October: Bathroom break, fresh beer.  \m/-

The singer of that I believe was the late, great, Ray Charles (not that Ray Charles) who sang backup on Perry Como records

Yeah I think you're right. It's a wah pedal, not a phaser.

 

lol re Bill Murray

Haha. That is pretty bad. I think it's more of a song for small children, but still. (One only hopes McCartney thought of it that way.) The Muskrat Love keyboard bleepy-ness doesn't do it any favors either.

Can't stand Bruce's version but love the Manfred Man version. I don't like most of Bruce's versions of anything. lol.
