    Every song that is in the so called 'pop charts' these days. Absolute horrible tripe the corporate pigs are foisting upon the mindless impressionable 'pop culture' youth.

    Thanks Mats. The Noah Baumbach enforsement ... i mean, endorsement... means a lot. I really do like just about anything the man writes. Turns out, he writes with the woman who wrote LadyBird, which reminded me of some of his work.

    Well, back to the McCartney jingle....
    Ja, it is practically kraftwerk with the synthesizers. Brilliant, experimental groundbreaking stuff. Iconoclasty from an icon. This is where the children's instrument trend began. So THIS is Christmas!

    The awful mindless copy and pasted joke of a tune called songs nowadays. All sound the same. All sound horrific. All hurt my brain.

    Not the worst song per se but really annoying for me. We are the champions and We will rock you by Queen are not one song yet the radio here in usa usa usa continues to play them together.

    ^Overused, abused^ Especially by these trilling dramaqueen phony crooners.

    Aw i actually liked that track in middle school. Decent song, great voice. Did not hear it much through the 80s, 90s and 2000s.
    Then they played it at the o2 arena in Londres....with confetti falling, when forehando tabasco and david marrero won the dubs masters.
    And i was hooked. Then i saw the emotional role the song played in a scene in "the perks of being a wallflower."
    A kid I used to hit with used it for a college recruiting vid. I did not have any influence.
    So, now it's one of my favorite songs. Just for one dayy.

    I consider Lou Gramm the greatest rock voice but its a whiny cry-baby song that is still played for no good reason ..

    ^That song was popular among a lot of different music fans. Not just suburban car stereo rock, or arena rock types. As i recall, cooler, more alt/indie folks liked it, too. Dudes in bands, dweebs, hard rock fans, pink floyd folks, sound engineers, fans of the Clash, fans of progressive rock, springsteen purists, classic rock.....everyone seemed to dig that track. Even chicks who liked journey.

    Black Horse and the Cherry Tree- KT Tunstall has been banned at my job. But the only station that can come in clearly is the Easy Listening station. It's understood that the nearest person to the radio turns it off whenever it comes on.

    The moment that it became "understood".... uh woo hoo!
    She has a good voice. But what a crap song.
    Seems like a good tv theme song for a pretentious crime drama set in lost wages, nevada. Or possibly whitetrash, Nevada. Maybe Rocklahoma.
    It is not easy listening to this track, but I understand the kids locking themselves in Safe Spaces really enjoy it.

    lol modern pop is a joke, at least here in north America. Any Taylor swift song is an automatic change of stations.

    Doobies are great and Michael McDonald's voice is otherworldly.

    My contributions:
    American Pie - Don McLean (immediately turn it off if I ever hear it again)
    Sweet Home Alabama - Skynyrd

    Also, popular bar dance songs when I was in college, most notably Electric Slide and Dancing Queen. Macarena too although that was tolerable.

    Any bloody Paul McCartney song. Ebony and Ivory is probably the most sickening.

    Especially for you is only special for me because I listened to it in a very happy moment of my life. Other than that it’s horrible.

    I like Love is all Around from Wet Wet Wet. But I can see why it rubs you the wrong way. It’s a borderline song.

    I will always love you from Whitney Houston would have been a much better song if it wasn’t so popular.

    Paul McCartney is good, but that specific song of him is harmful for human health. It makes love a despicable feeling.

    Never gonna give you up... I lived in a apartment building in the 80’s. I had a psychotic neighbor who played that song very loud repeatedly, for hours.
    I could never be the same person again after that experience.

    Love hurts compares to a Sharapova - Azarenka shriek/squeal competition.

    Luckily, I have never listened to that before. McCartney clone is not convincing.
