James Blunt Must Die - Apparently

I am a very broad minded person and I have very diverse taste in music. I’m as comfortable with Barber and Carloff as I am with Who Killed the Prom Queen. At work, we usually listen to Nova or Mix 106FM which play new 'pop' releases and some 70s, 80’s and 90’s stuff – a bit of alternative. Not my stations of choice but respectible enough to play in the workplace without offending clients. Plus the rotations aren’t too frequent so you don’t get Kelly Clarkson screaming in your ear like a wounded banshee.

But at the moment I began to wonder what to post today, the airwaves were wafting with the soft sobs of Lasting Love Dedications or the Sing us a Sloppy Song sessions. The lurve oozing from our little boom box is sparking a finger down the throat gesture at the moment.

I actually had a quick browse on the internet during my lunch hour and found some worst songs of all time, not perhaps the worst but the most annoying or the ones that stay in your head. Sorry if I trigger an unforgettable moment!

You had to go and mention 'The CandyMan' didn't you?!! I'll be in my head for the rest of the day now!

My pet peeve is Sting and Eric Clapton 'It's probably me' MsB3N is constantly playing that one.

'YES!!!! You're dead right Sting, It fuckin is you!!!! Now shut the fuck up!!!!'

Sorry B3N for the pain you're suffering. Couldn't agree more. The Police are touring here at the moment. Seems we get the world's ageing rejects. Joe Cocker, U2, Stones . . . sorry about Candy Man, I've been humming Beyonce's Say My Name all day . . .I DON'T WANT TO . . .just make her go away!

Death to the following:
Beyonce Knowles, that Rihanna bird, James Bluntybollocks, Mika ... in fact, every pop song in existence.

Aside from the fact that it now sounds like a demented record store in my head with Lady in Red, MacArthur Park, Seasons in the Sun, Feelings, Brand New Key, I write the Songs all competing for airtime, I then remembered this ghastly thing...

Three Times a Lady - Lionel Ritchie. Argh!

I am now going outside to shoot myself. And it's all your fault! Shame on you!

Baino said...

Deep seated apologies but If I must suffer . . .I'm taking you all with me! DAZ: Play Killing in the Name of VERY LOUD PLEASE. (and it's sort of your fault . . I was inspired by your Any Dream Will Do comment so I hope it rings in your head till Saturday!)
I didn't even mention Bon Jovi Blaze of Glory *evil snicker*

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Smile and the world smiles with you, suffer and they must do the same, eh, Baino?

Daz said...

Queens of the Stone Age - No One Knows will purge this shit righr out ...

Or the Foo Fighter's Lonely As You! I use that song to get back at my Dolly Parton loving neighbours :)

There's also 'All Kinds of Everything' by Dana, eurovision entry 1632.

You know James Blunt's name used to be Blount?

I guess that makes him a count :)
