Thread Name: Worst Folk Song Ever?
Subject: RE: Worst Folk Song Ever?
"I disliked this one the FIRST time I heard it (which should be the criteria here)"

Basically I think that the idea behind that is right - with the qualification that sometimes a song that you don't like the first time you hear it will turn out to be pretty good when you have listened to it a bit. And it can sometimes happen the other way round

But the idea that a song that was at one time a good song can become rubbish just because you have sung or heard it sung too often is a bit of a nonsense. For example, most of the songs mentioned in this thread.
