Default Awful songs you just can't get enough of

I have to admit, the music threads on this forum have been some of my favorites. I am hoping you guys wouldn't mind if I started another.

Today the Dear Wife and I were riding in the car, and a song I just can't get enough of came on, one of those "guilty pleasures." So I cranked it up and started singing, surely way off key. My wife said "If you're going to listen to this, at least roll up the windows!" And then she actually slid down in her seat!!

The song? "I Think I Love You" by the Partridge Family. I know it's awful, but I just have to listen to it every time it comes on. I'd like to think I have good taste in music, don't know where this one comes from.

Does anyone else have a particular song that's probably embarrassing, but you just don't care??

In a similar vein, for me it's "Sugar, Sugar" by the Archies.

hahahahaahah, no way that is a banable offense. A perfect selection to add to the list.

Two from 1972, ‘How Do You Do?’ by Mouth & McNeal and ‘Beautiful Sunday’ by Daniel Boone. I would include ‘Get Down’ by Gilbert O’Sullivan, ‘Sky High’ by Jigsaw, and ‘Magic’ by Pilot but I actually think those are good songs .

I had another come to mind that I liked as a kid, but now wonder "what was I thinking". I looked it up, and strangely enough, it was a hit by Paper Lace in England, but then a hit in the U.S. by Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods. The song is Billy Don't Be A Hero. I actually owned the 45 record.

They played Take a Chance On Me by ABBA the other night on tv and I couldn't get that damn song out of my mind all night. Almost as bad as It's a Small World at Disney. Praying for a better night.

But, to this day, I have yet to listen to an Adele song start to finish (unless I’m in Stop & Shop and it’s pumped in…but that doesn’t count).

When I was a kid I traded my Archies album for Jimi Hendrix's "Are you experienced".

My parents said I was never the same after that.

My guilty pleasure song is by the 1910 Fruitgum company "1,2 3, Red Light". It's a horrible song but for some reason I still like it.

Surely one of the worst songs ever. Right there with Thunder Island by Jay Ferguson. Sha la la la la la, my lady. Around that same time Steve Miller had several songs with absolutely embarrassingly bad lyrics, although some of the tunes were good.

Did you say bad lyrics?? Top this:

"Gliddy glub gloopy, nibby nabby noopy la, la, la, lo, lo
Sabba sibby sabba, nooby abba nabba, le, le, lo, lo
Tooby ooby walla, nooby abba naba
Early mornin' singin' song

Can you hear me singin' a song, lovin' a song, singin' a song
Lovin' a song, laughin' a song, singin' a song
Sing a song, song a sing, song, song, song, sing
Sing, sing, sing song

Song, song, song sing, sing, sing, sing song
Sing, sing, song, sing a song
Yeah, you can sing, sing, sing song, sing a song
Sing, sing, song, sing a song
Sing"

This is definitely an awful song that many like.

These are just.. bad.

Leaving home, out on the road
I've been down before
Riding along on this big old jet plane
I've been thinking about my home
But my love light seems so far away
And I feel like it's all been done
Somebody's trying to make me stay
You know I got to be moving on
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Goodbye to all my friends at home
Goodbye to people I've trusted
I've got to go out and make my way
I might get rich, you know, I might get busted
But my heart keeps calling me backwards
As I get on the 707
Riding high, I got tears in my eyes
You know you got to go through hell before you get to heaven
Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Touching down in New England town
Feel the heat coming down
I've got to keep on keeping on
You know the big wheel keeps a-spinning around
And I'm going with some hesitation
You know that I can surely see
That I don't want to get caught up in any of that
Funky shit going down in the city
Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Big ol' jet airliner
Don't carry me too far away
Woah-oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's here that I've got to stay
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
Carry me to my home
Oh, big ol' jet airliner
'Cause it's there that I belong

I have a Goth input way before Goth was even a thing:

DOA - By Bloodrock (and yes, it pops into my head around Halloween every year.)

Laying here, looking out the ceiling, someone puts a sheet across my chest.
Something warm is flowing out my body, pain is flowing out with my blood......

I remember, we were flying low, and hit something in the air.....

You're welcome, I am here all week.

I am a fan of Zappa too, but all of his songs were good IMHO. First concert I ever went to was Zappa's Overnight Sensation Tour.

huzzah.

I like a lot of the songs listed so far so I really wouldn't call them awful songs, personally.

Mark's song, however, is another story but not a chance it'd get stuck in my head as, just like now, I gave it about 5 seconds before I clicked the X in the top right corner.

I was never really a fan of Zappa's until 2 friends dragged me to see him at a concert in Toronto many years ago.
I was completely blown away by how talented and tight Zappa and the band were.
One of the best concerts I ever seen, but that is where it ended, other than listening to Joe's Garage occasionally.

A few years ago they played that thing frequently on TV as a public service ad for getting kids to brush their teeth. The guy in the green outfit would step forward and deliver that message during their song.

So, not by choice, I was exposed to it over and over and it keeps coming back to me. I wish I had an X to click on my head to get rid of it.

You are a music hater if you don't like Joe's Garage.

I was the same with Alice Cooper. Never liked his mediocre at best music but man can that guy can put on a show. I still don't care for his music but would watch him in concert again anytime.

No, Joe's garage is a great song. There are few others that I don't mind, but for the most part, it is not my type of music.

Alice Cooper was also a great concert and to this day I love most of his early stuff. Ballad of Dwight Fry, schools out, only women bleed, is it my body, cold Ethal. The list goes on and on.

LOL, I am a stick in the mud music listener. I listen to Frank Zappa, AC/DC, and The Beastie Boys and nothing else. The Frank Zappa cd has been in my pickups cd player for several months. Someday I will switch it out. When I mow I pull up youtube on my phone and it is so used to me the only options it gives me are the 3 bands listed above.

This song is one of those horrible songs that for some reason I couldn't help but sing along with during the commercials.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UB_frUdiqYE

Thankfully those commercials aren't/weren't played up here as far as I know.
I believe if they were played on the T.V. or the radio I would change the station right quick.

I was lucky enough to grow up in a town with its own little radio station in the 70s. I was glued to the radio all hours of the day, both for music and sports talk radio. And particularly dial in contests, which I won about 150 times. (40 years later I still have the phone number memorized.) A few contributions.

Magic by Pilot

Wildfire by Michael Martin Murphey

I'm Not in Love by 10cc

You Make Me Feel Like Dancing by Leo Sayer

I'm kind of surprised that no one has mentioned any Monkee songs. I'm a believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Daydream Believer are a few that come to mind.

I believe if they were played on the T.V. or the radio I would change the station right quick.
Luckily the commercial for hair coloring was only on for maybe two weeks. Unfortunately it was every third commercial. I find the woman who sings it very attractive so I didn't change the channel.

Some of those mentioned are not awful at all, IMO. I'm a Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday? Really? Those were and are good tunes.

Some I find hideously bad, in no particular order:

1: Heaven on the 7th Floor
2: Chevy Van
3. Me and you and a dog named Boo
4: Watching Scotty Grow
5: Having my Baby
6: You light up my life
7: Angie Baby

Then of course there's Louie Louie, which at least is a good drinking song.

I agree with you about the Monkees songs. I personally like them a lot but some people consider it "Bubble Gum" music so they think it's awful.

I also think "The Candy Man" by Sammy Davis Jr. would fit nicely on your list of terrible songs.

Man, like nearly every song on here is one I really liked in Jr High.

Plus, and apologies if they've already been mentioned

Maybe others?

A Christmas nomination. A station here plays it every year as the worst Christmas song ever, although it has a lot of competition. An Old Fashioned Christmas...Daddy's Home by Linda Bennet

A few more I thought of as I read everyone's choices include "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher and anything by Bobby Goldsboro.

We didn't Start the Fire - Billy Joel. Probably one of his only songs I cannot stand, yet will always hear in my head.

These will clear the room but I like to hear them every once in a while, ‘Run Joey Run’ by David Geddes, ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighy Real)’ by Sylvester, ‘Romeo’s Tune’ by Steve Forbert, ‘Chase Me’ by Con Funk Shun, ‘Let’s All Chant’ by The Michael Zager Band, ‘I’m Not Lisa’ by Jessi Colter.

I used to despite Abba. They grew on me. The two guys who wrote their stuff are pop geniuses IMO. Check out the video of Voulez Vous, in a disco with the lights going crazy. Hypnotic.

Honestly I am not familiar with many of the newer songs on this thread, but would contribute the following:

Muskrat Love - Captain & Tennille

Wooly Bully - Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs

These Boots are Made for Walking - Nancy Sinatra

Sugar Sugar - The Archies

Nobody But Me - The Human Beinz

No redeeming qualities at all: Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield.

Lady in Red -- Chris de Burgh.

A song I like but it's also kind of "Bubblegum" music. From the summer of '74, "Life is a rock (but the radio rolled me)" by Reunion.

https://youtu.be/16kh-AP4OCU

Another nomination for a bad song, "They're coming to take me away ha-haaa" by Napoleon XIV.
