Which cliche you never want to hear again in song lyrics?

Asked by rebbel (28640points) May 4th, 2011

Yeah, as stated above.
What words, you feel, you hear over and over again? and enough is enough already.
Which lines in songs make the hair on the back of your neck stand up?
Mine is “send shivers down my spine…”.

Baby, I love you, baby, because you’re my baby, baby.

I’m down on my knees & i’m begging you please!! Fuck off, just eat her out already ;¬}
Oh & any song with the word babe or baby included, unless of course they happen to be nursery rhymes.

anything about hearts breaking, anything about lovemaking, anything about someone turning someone on., songs suck. except the ones by Nirvana.

I never want to hear someone rhyme something with the word “heart” again.

Any of them, clichés make me cringe.
Plays on or off of cliché can be ok, when done right.

“I’d die for you.” or “I’m in love with you.”
I mean, seriously. How much more corny can a song get?

I never want to hear a song about “getting down on Friday” ever again.

Michael_Huntington's avatar

I agree. It’s all about Wednesday. Getting down on Wednesday!

Treating “together” and “forever” as a rhyme.

Lumping together a broken pick-up truck, a lonesome cowboy, beer and a bump, a broken heart, a broken pool cue, a gal with a heart of gold, my baby, your baby, sweet mama, squirrel stew, moonshine, the outhouse, and hound dogs.

Anything that includes the word promise.

Brian1946's avatar

Just about any lyrics that include words like “homies”, “bitches”, “hoes”, “knock”, and “slap”.

While I think it can be done well, I’d at least like people to think long and hard before telling me how their love is like an addiction, affliction, or crucifixion.

I always picture some person bawling and there is thunder and lighting flashing around their head.

Anything like the following:

“Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow.
Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow.”

Also, you can’t really ”[fall] in love with shorty when [you] [see] her on the dance floor.”

Usher is okay, but Will.I.Am ruins everything.

Edit: These aren’t really cliches, but the lack of effort put into them is.

broken heart…..

The self-pity and angst in a lot of modern mainstream rock. It probably got started with grunge and then bands like Papa Roach and Disturbed made it a lot worse in the late 90s and early 2000s. When you couple angsty lyrics with that nu-metal sound, just… yeesh. My skin crawls.

“I can’t live without you.”
