Songs That Make Me Wish I Were Def

Sometimes a band comes out with a song that sucks so much, in some cases it makes me usually end up not liking any of their music, or in more extreme situations makes me want shove a pencil in my ears to stop the pain of listening to that song.

Pearl Jam - Last Kiss (remake): I know living in Seattle that I'm supposed to love Pearl Jam, but come on, Eddie Vedder singing Last Kiss makes me wish I were the dead girl in the car.

Del Amitri - Roll to Me: This song made it to the top 10 list back in 1995 and has haunted me ever since. If you don't know what I'm talking about, listen to a clip on Amazon and this song might make you want to go on a shooting spree as well.

Bryan Adams- Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman: the them song for Don Juan DeMarco, and when it came out there was nowhere I could go that wasn't playing it: malls, grocery stores, the radio on most all pop stations, my college campus, and in my nightmares.

Dave Matthews Band- Too Much: you know what is too much Dave, the number of times you say those words in this song.

The Beatles - Ob-la-di, ob-la-da: The thing with the Beatles is, they have come out with some of the best music of all time, yet also come out with some of the worst. "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!" Yeah brah, life does go one, just hopefully without ever hearing this song again.

John Lennon - Give Peace A Chance: Speaking of the Beatles; yes we should give peace a chance, but we shouldn't have an entire song that just repeats those lines over and over again. Maybe someone should have played this for Dave Matthews before he embarked on his writing career.

Eric Clapton & Babyface - Change the World: First of all, Eric Clapton is a musical god. Now having said that, even a god can make mistakes, and this time he did when he decided to appeal to a younger audience in teaming up with Babyface on this stinker of a song. "I would be the sunlight in your universe" No you wouldn't, because my universe wouldn't have this song in it.

Train - Hey, Soul Sister: The band has the name Train. Right there that puts them on a crap list, just for having a crappy name. But When Hey Soul Sister came out and was played constantly that solidified it for me. This band blows!

Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love you & Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go on: I'm going to group these two because, well they go together in the same pile of garbage. If you were alive when these movie songs came out, then you know what I'm talking about. They got so much airplay that even now I cringe at just thinking of them.

Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away: Yes Lenny, please fly away and take this song with you.

Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder - Ebony and Ivory: Another stinking up the charts post Beatles musician. But hey, at least it wasn't a theme song for an equally crappy movie.

There are others that I could add to this list like anything by New Kids on the Block, or any number of other bands that were so bad their entire collection of music sucks. But I wanted to limit this list to people who some consider good musicians most of the time. Except for the Del Amitri song, that song sucks so much it makes me hate all their music, even though it's the only one I've ever heard from that band.
