20 Most Annoying Songs

The song “Tubthumping” played on my iTunes and even after years of hearing it, I never really understood what it meant until I googled it today. In my search, not only did I find its meaning (politicking, tubthumper being a politician), I also found a reference in Wikipedia to the 20 most annoying songs complied by the Rolling Stones.  Apparently the song was part of the list as #12.  Of course I looked at the rest of the list and was surprised some of the songs I actually like. 😀

1. Black Eyed Peas, “My Humps”   — This is a rather fun song. 😀
2. Los Del Rio, “Macarena” — I kinda understand.
3. Baha Men, “Who Let The Dogs Out” — Kinda understand too.
4. Celine Dion, “My Heart Will Go On” — This really ain’t bad, if only it weren’t overplayed.
5. Nickelback, “Photograph” — Well, I don’t like it for being too noisy to the ears.
6. Lou Bega, “Mambo No. 5″ — I’m 50/50 on this.
7. James Blunt, “You’re Beautiful” — This is annoying?!
8. Spice Girls, “Wannabe” — Um…
9. Sisqo, “The Thong Song” — Quite a fun song, IMHO.
10. Cher, “Believe” — Is it really the song? Or how Cher looked in the video?
11. Aqua, “Barbie Girl” — LOL. They could have easily said ‘Aqua’; I’m sure this isn’t the only one. I’m not really hatin’ them though.
12. Chumbawumba, “Tub Thumper” — Nah.
13. Rednex, “Cotton-Eyed Joe” — Never heard.
14. Eiffel 65, “Blue” — I thought this is cute.
15. Crash Test Dummies, “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm”
16. Meatloaf, “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” — I almost love this song…
17. ‘NSYNC, “Bye, Bye, Bye” — HAHAHA. Boyband hatred?
18. Ricky Martin, “Livin’ La Vida Loca” — I guess more annoying than Maria or La Copa dela Vida.
19. Semisonic, “Closing Time” — I love this song. C’mon now.
20. Wham!, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” — This puts a smile on my face. Always. So I disagree.

I guess that says I’m not so much of a rock person, as perhaps most of these Rolling Stones fanatics are.
