Your Input: A Song You Hate from a Band You Love

Is it possible to love every song your favorite artist or band puts out?

Sure, maybe.

But can you also hate a song by a band or artist you adore?

Also very possible. Maybe even probable.

Perhaps “hate” is too strong a word… but can you name a song you just don’t dig from a band or artist you otherwise LOVE????

We want – nay, need – to hear from you! Hit that comments section! Enjoy!

Paul McCartney: Temporary Secretary. I just listened to make sure I wasn’t exaggerating. I was not. It’s terrible and I’ll never forgive him.

Bill Boys

“She can be a belly dancer, I don’t need a true romancer. She can be a diplomat but I don’t need a girl like that. She can be a neurosurgeon if she’s doing nothing urgent. What I need’s a temporary, temporary secretary.”

Bill Boys

Just thought of another one. It’s a song called Sequel. It is the Sequel to Harry Chapin’s Taxi. It seems so contrived and the rhythm of the lyrics seem like he’s forcing words into the story because he was in a hurry. Then the music kind of Rocks out and that doesn’t fit, to me. Doesn’t make sense to redo a classic, usually.

David

I agree Bill, even if it was just a space filler to fill up the album what the f*** was he thinking. That doesn’t even make the bubble gum list

Shelley Stewart,
There is an article by Andy of three songs that Bobby added something that made them better. It’s at the very end as you scroll to the bottom.

Shelley Briley

Rolling Stones Beast of Burden I like it, then I dont like it, then I like it, then do not ask me to explain why

Alice Sullivan

Thank you guys. Just a note of gratitude. May peace be with you always my music friends. Your noodles are always groovy. Memorable as well. Thank you guys.

Bill Boys

On your article, you mention Bobby came up with the double time part to indicate that the “Q” is accelerating. During that part with just instrumental, I always sing the Batman theme. It doesn’t exactly match up but I enjoy doing it, for some bizarre reason.

Lisa

Eagles – Hotel California ugh *shudder*

Charles Wax

Van Halen – Jump. I cringe whenever I hear it. What crowd were they reaching for when they came up with that song? I really enjoy almost their entire output, but Jump sets me walking the other direction, fast!

Vincent Peteroy

RUSH
Album – Hold Your Fire
Song – Tai Shan
