There are certainly songs that drive me crazy, but there are certain 'treatments' of some songs that just about make me batty...

...like when some one sings, "Happy Birthday to you, CHA-CHA-CHA...Happy Birthday to you, CHA-CHA-CHA!" or "Dashing through the snow, In a one-horse open sleigh, O'er the fields we go, Laughing all the way--HA-HA-HA!"

Stuff like that makes me want to scream!

Just one of my personal quirks, I guess!

I guess the justification for such songs is that they're really easy to learn, and teach to a bunch of school kids.

The one I really detested was "Reuben and Rachel". They used to divide the class into males and females and force us to sing alternate verses. What torture! (specially for the boys, who were mostly embarrassed out of their minds).

Mind you, I'd really like to hear William Shatner's version of "Reuben and Rachel" sometime. I have the feeling he could give it a whole new twist.

"Kumbaya", led by someone with an endless supply of gerunds (Someone's flying, Lord...weeping...fishing...changing a tire...selling insurance...workingwithdiophantineequationsinthemathdepartment...playing D,A,E,A until cramp sets in...)

You are right, Mario! However, I don't have any kids either. I have a Master's Degree in avoidance.

LOL LH! However - even without TV or Radio if you have contact with kids you will probably be given a number of annoying earworms...

The best remedy is to stop watching TV entirely, AND to stop listening to radio also. In this way you can avoid annoying songs, plus 95% of all advertising! You can also avoid hearing all kinds of bad news that you can't do anything about anyway, and it will greatly improve your daily state of mind, which will help the world a lot more than worrying about the bad news ever did. If we all did this, we could wreck havoc on the commercial system around us.

Another course of action I recommend is regarding junk mail with a return evelope, postage paid:

collect a bunch of 'em, fill out their forms with totally bogus information, then mix them all up so that the form for one is in another's envelope, and mail 'em back.

They pay for it, and it wastes their time...which is only fair, considering they have wasted yours ever since you reached adulthood.

One more suggestion: Get an unlisted phone number. If you still get called by a telemarketer somehow, there are a number of highly creative ways of wasting his/her time too, such as placing the receiver next to a stereo speaker on which is playing Dylan's song "Like A Rolling Stone". That usually drives 'em away fairly quickly, unless they are Dylan fans, and research has proven that very few telemarketers are.

There was a song driving me nuts a few days ago, but I have fortunately forgotten what it was...thank God!

You guys are lucky. At my work, I have to listen to Spanish radio all day, and if you have ever been to the Costa del Sol, you know how trite and insidious these Spanish pop songs can be. Currently I have about ten of them buzzing around in my head.

Any one that gets into my brain and won't go away and I find myself waking up at 5.00am and singing it, like that bloody annoying Mambo No. 5 which was bad enough when it was the original, disgusting when it was 'a little bit of Monica in my life' and now it's been hijacked by Bob the Builder!

AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I'd have to say that that song is annoying but not as bad as Fly away like a Bird, or something like that, by Nelly Furtado. It just gets on my nerves. It's not a bad song, I just hate it. -Twist

Just responded to the thread about the worst song you ever heard. Made me think of songs that aren't always bad songs, but they just get in you head and drive you NUTS. "Man I Feel Like A Woman" - Shania Twain is the one in the last few years that makes me want to scream. If I hear it in the mornings my day is shot. What song gets in your head?
