Charlie,
It'll have to be "Feliz Navidad"

Its not really a bad song, its just WAY overplayed here in Tucson. It started this year the day after Thanksgiving. (First time I heard it this year) So maybe its the worst holiday song written. EVER.

The all time champ would have to be "Mr. Roboto" by STYX. I don't need to explain that one.

Greta

Last Christmas by George Michael ( I think, i'm not real sure if it's him or not, but it sounds like him)

Catherine

God, this is so easy. Pretention? Try American Pie, by Don McLean. GO FUCK YOURSELF AND YOUR CHEVY, YOU DICKSMACK!

Molly

Growing up in Shitville near Hershey, PA, I got to say "It's a Small World After All."I don't know if it's still there, but man, those creepy animatronic kids in their ethnic costume still give me the wiggins. By the way, this song is the sure cure for removing any other song stuck in a cerebral sulci. Unfortunately, the cure is worse than the disease.

The New Kids on the Block. Every song from every album they ever did. Because the tune and rhythm might vary a little but it's all the same fucking thing.
Also any boy-band song where the main repeating word is "Oh", "Rock", "Girl", "Yeah", or "No"

And Molly, the best tune to cure any Ear Worm is the theme song from Jeopardy. Works every time and rarely ever gets stuck in your head. My mom has this theory that it was created specifically to drive any coherent thought from your mind so that you are unable to win any money at the end of the damn show. I think she may be right.

"We Built this City (on Rock & Roll)" by Starship. I need say no more.

Not a song, but a jingle: The Dr Pepper "I'm a pepper, you're a pepper, wouldn't you like to be a pepper. too?" A friend, encouraged by some blow an an increasing case of OCD sang that for a YEAR. Loudly. And I just brought it back to my head. Oh no.....

Julie

What a great question. I love/hate the category I call GradiosiRock- stuff like Rush, Jethro Tull etc. The lyrics are so overthetop and self-important but I love them, ya know?

Cecily

Damn, Catherine, I like American Pie! Not often, but every now and then I just love to hear it.

But I'm a total SAP.

I would have said everything by Pink Floyd, but I just heard an awesome Dar Williams cover of "comfortably numb" that totally changes the song for me, so perhaps I've just been overdosed...

I know I hate some songs. Wait...

How about that "Red, White and Blue" song by Toby Keith?

Fucking jingoistic hollow-chest thumping nationalist crap.

:)

Jean

The medias new idea of R&B (whatever happened to that meaning rythymn and blues?) all that booty crap (large or otherwise!) and ooh baby, pout, lipgloss stuff bollocks.....it gets my goat!!, going for a lie down now....

Leslie

Living on a prayer, by Bon Jovi.

"Whooah, we’re half-way there,

Whooah, livin’ on a pray-er!

Take my hand and we’ll make it - I swear

Whooah, livin’ on a prayer!"

So awesomely bad just thinking about it makes my ears bleed. And the guys a millionaire.

Lauren

So many songs, so little time. How about every rock group's recording of Christmas songs? Santa would definitely NOT come to town if he heard THAT version of the song.

And, while I love Norah Jones' sound, WTF is up with the words to "Don't Know Why"

But I'll be a bag of bones
Drivin' down the road alone
My heart is drenched in wine
You'll be on my mind forever

Drenched in wine? Really? GACK.

"Everything I do, I do it for you." - Bryan Adams.

It just plain offends me. The overplay, the stupidity, the potential for mental abuse "But baby, I did it for you, because I love you!"

Leah

How about Sting's "Every Breath You Take". A total stalker song.

I love Sting, but what was he thinking?????

Lisa V

Sting later said the song scared him too. Didn't he write "Set Them Free" or whatever the hell it's called as a response ?

ktpupp

I'd cast my vote to remove all Bob Seger songs from the face of the earth. Spent to much of my life in the metro-Detroit area where Seger is played almost every third song... God, I hate Bob Seger!!!

Leggy

Worst song EVER? "Safety Dance" by Men without Hats. Ugh- still makes me shudder.

Charlie

Ah, Men Without Hats.... you're right, that IS bad.

But where are they now? Men Without Jobs.

rob

aw, what's wrong with Wham's "Last Christmas"? I like that one.

liz

Pul-eeeeese people, you've totally neglected the ear worm to end all ear worms:

(whispers)The Gilligan's Island Theme
