My Top 10 Songs That I Don't Want To Hear Anymore

This list is in no particular order and was NOT stolen from another individual. Copyright Infringement will not be tolerated and all property goes to Steven Chung....AH SCREW IT! I don't what you want. :)  

- Blog #15: I'm a man who thoroughly enjoys music. There's really no tune that I wouldn't lend an ear to. If it catches even the slightest interest, then I'll listen to it. Lately, I've been listening to the radio and music being played all over the place. A thought came to me. Why are there so many songs that are being replayed over and over again!? How do people listen to this crap? Has anyone ever had that moment where you're listening to a song and you just say to yourself..."This song is f***ing old"? This list expresses that feeling of distaste and it shows off 10 songs that need to stop Some of us are really tired of listening to the same old music. It's just painful.

1. I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas) - It's overused. I hear it EVERYWHERE! That's the problem with "good" music. People will want to use it over and over again, because they claim they love it and others will love it too. After hearing this song over 100 times, I don't have the feeling that I'm going to be listening to this song anymore. Plus, I read somewhere that 12 people wrote the lyrics to this song. Really? It took 12 people to write a song that had the phrases, "I gotta feeling......that tonight's gonna be a good night" and "Let's do it", used about 20 times? 12 people!? I know plenty of individuals who write music and write music well...on their own! A lot of them aren't even famous! I can list a bunch of good songwriters at my high school! I'll give it to BEP that they made a catchy beat for this, but that's just the attention grabber. This song is over.

2. California Girls (Katy Perry) - Here's another problem with songs of this generation. Song ideas are often stolen from other, older songs. In other words, many songs of this generation should really have a "Sue-Stamp" on their labels. This song must have had ideas stolen from the Beach Boy's version. In fact, the only difference that I see between the two songs is that one is authentic and the other one just added a catchy beat that wasn't necessary (the same "beat" problem as #1). These musicians are damn lucky that their songs make the big bucks. I mean, really damn lucky. I hate this song with a burning passion. Can there NOT be songs about girls who act like schmucks? It's getting old and giving out bad messages.

3. Don't Stop Believin' (Journey) - Go ahead and hate. I don't care. What is so special about this song? Why is it that this song is most often played at parties, karaoke shows, or other festivities? Why is it that this song is so popular and, yet, most people can only remember the first couple of lines? There are far better songs out there where people can actually remember the whole song. Truthfully, the only reason I don't want to hear this song anymore is because I don't want to listen to others try and sing along with it. This song isn't THAT good. I'm sorry.

4. Poker Face (Lady Gaga) - The only thing I found at all good with this song was the audio editing done on the words "Poker" and "Face." Other than that, this song is a joke. Do you know another thing I hate about this new generation of music? It's that moment where the singer feels the need to add a melodic "oooh", "ahhh" or in this case a "mum mum mum ma" phrase. If you're going to do it, do it right! Do it with actual feeling! Do it up with Earth, Wind, and Fire style! The way that singers do it now is just a sign to have the listeners pity them. It's despicable. Lady Gaga? Popular superstar contender to President Obama? I don't see it and I don't want to hear this song anymore.

5. Any Song With Rihanna - Ok singer, bad songs. I hate any song by Rihanna. She takes the melodic ecstasy idea from #4 and uses it at her will. Rihanna, your lyrics are depressing. You're depressing. I don't feel bad for you about the whole "Chris Brown" scenario. You should have known about what you were getting into. Chris Brown may have beaten you up, but it was your fault for not noticing what kind of behavior this kind of guy had. Go fall in a hole. All songs, with you in it, are just sour. Especially, this one...

6. Tik Tok (Ke$ha) - Another song with a reference to sex...great. For starters, the first few lines of this song make me sick. How the hell can you brush your teeth with a bottle of jack? Are your thoughts THAT messed up!? That's just immature and stupid. Don't try and convince me that this song has deeper meaning! It doesn't. I wouldn't want to dance to this song. Every time I hear, "Wake up in the morning feeling like P-Diddy", I either want to shoot myself or shoot Ke$ha (not that even have the heart to do so). She makes it sound so...icky. Radio just loves to pop in music that revolves around intercourse now, doesn't it? That's pleasant (<--- take the hint of sarcasm).

7. Party in the U.S.A (Miley Cyrus) - Miley is a much better song writer than most everyone on this list. It's just too bad that my feeling of hope for her becoming a good role model had been swiped away by fate. It's a shame that Miley has become a spoiled superstar who only wants to party and pretend to be her alter-ego "Hannah Montana!" On the side, the song itself is ok. This is just one of those songs that you get tired of hearing of, after a while. It's one of those songs where you're like: "Yeah, we heard you. They're playing your song. Shut up." This is a song where the joy that's supposed to be felt is replaced with something that feels forced. In the words of some, Miley..."you forced it."

8. Dynamite (Taio Cruz) - I don't know much about this guy, but I hear this song a lot. I dub this piece of work as another song with a catchy beat, but lousy context. I looked through the lyrics of this song and the only thing I'm getting out of it is that this song is about a guy who wants to party with some girl. Wow...that's new. Good party song? Maybe. Hearing this song more often than wanted? Unacceptable.

9. Hollaback Girl (Gwen Stefani) - I'm getting tired of writing this list. So, I'm going to sum this one up just as Brian, from Family Guy, would. I quote, "I don't know what a 'Hollaback Girl' is. All I know is that I want her dead." THANK YOU, FAMILY GUY AND SETH GREEN! There's so much profane language in this song. Once again, unneeded material. At this point in life, society may as well just accept swear words and un-sensor them. Everyone is starting to catch up onto what they are and what they mean. So, this song revolves around unspoken drama? C'mon! Suck it up, people! I'm sure as hell that people talk about me behind my back. Do I care? Not in the slightest. Grow up.

10. Barbie Girl (Aqua) - (sighs) Pathetic.

- Done...thank God. Time to go and listen to some REAL music.


  1. We no speak americano should be here too.. SO OVERPLAYED.

  2. Really? I don't hear that song much at all. I never even heard of the song until I saw this comment. Even so, I probably wouldn't put that one on here. This song doesn't bother me that much.
