I can’t bear “Cry me a river “

Greyduster Tue 24-Nov-20 19:02:52

I have two - “Land of Hope and Glory” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

Oops the word in brackets should be “songs”. Please gnhq can you edit ?

I love "Cry me a river"

I think we've all got our pet hates, particularly ones that go round and round in your head, even though you know you can't stand them such as "Sugar, Sugar" inane even worse than that the "Birdy Song" Doubly inane shock

Bohemian Rhapsody I absolutely detest it. Guess which song is my ear worm! 🤬

FannyCornforth Tue 24-Nov-20 19:07:31

'Angels' - Robbie Williams
'Goodbye Norma Jean/ England's Rose' envy- Elton John
'Shout'- Lulu (Weeee-eeeeee-eee-eeee-eee-el!)

Oh, honestly, I could be here all day with this...

Anything by The Carpenters.

‘Seasons in the sun’ or ‘Copacabana’ - both make me reach for the sick bucket.

FannyCornforth Tue 24-Nov-20 19:09:40

Well done Lucca!
This is bound to run and run! smile

FannyCornforth Tue 24-Nov-20 19:12:14

'Imagine' and 'Woman' bleurgh.

FannyCornforth Tue 24-Nov-20 19:15:43

'If you don't know me by now' - the misogynist narcissist gas- lighting song.

I'm going to read my kindle now before I punch a hole in the bedroom wall grin

Grandma70s Tue 24-Nov-20 19:17:36

I’m with Greyduster - Land of Hope and Glory and You’ll Never Walk Alone for me as well.

I’m sure I’ll think of others.

Terri it was actually titled 'Shaddappaya Face' , and it was by Joe Dolce. Lord knows how I know this.
I promise I'm getting off GN now

LauraNorder Tue 24-Nov-20 19:30:39

Terri Shaddappaya face was the first one that came to my mind when I read the title.
Thanks for the spelling tip Fanny

Grannynannywanny Tue 24-Nov-20 19:33:40

Typos! I’ll try again...

I hate Mack the Knife

Lucretzia Tue 24-Nov-20 19:36:51

Fairytale of New York .... sets my teeth on edge and I have to switch it off

Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. Having brown eyes people would shriek they were playing my song as they tried to drag me to the dance floor

Dance The Night Away by The Mavericks . That always gt me stomping off the dance floor in a bad mood

I have many more but I'm getting angsty just thinking of these songs

TerriBull Tue 24-Nov-20 19:40:29

Fanny I bow to your superior knowledge on the subject grin

I love Barry White, but only in the last 10 or 15 years or so, he was considered very naff, when I was growing up a bit like Abba who no one would admit to liking, even though we did secretly. I think some of us find as we age, naff seems to hit all the right spots grin One of my friends admitted to me a while back "I don't know what's happened to me lately, I seem to like Barry White", "So do I" came my reply!"

'Imagine' and 'Woman' bleurgh.

With you on Imagine, Fanny, dirge. Not keen on Woman either, come to that!
