Don't play that song

The San Francisco Chronicle was asking for songs "you'd love to never hear again."

Of course, were I to go into any sort of detail about my own musical bêtes noires, we'd be here all week.

In the meantime, what one recording is absolutely guaranteed to make you hit the button, the on/off switch, or the roof?

"It Takes Two" by Donnie and Marie Osmond. It's the 70s. My two kid sisters just received a record player for Christmas, and one (count'em, one) record. Guess which one.

"Love Hurts" by Nazareth. Like driving a railroad spike through your own head with a tack hammer.

All of the pop (except Stevie Wonder) and most of the radio rock from the early '70s. I was in several stores yesterday where the All The Hits From The Seventies station was on, and wondered how I survived the era. Now I remember that there was a station in Chicago back then which played classic country (yeah, country pop tended to suck those years too).

That "boot in the ass" song by Toby Keith. Guaranteed to set me off.

"You and Me Against the World" - It was popular when I was a child and my little kitten got smushed. I cried my eyes out then and I still cry everytime I hear that song...except now it turns my stomach. Hate it.
