Polka your eyes out. By weird Al Yankovich.

Jeff Buckley – Halleluja

Or actually any rendition of the song.
Used to love it (didn’t know it was a Cohen song, only knew it from Buckley), but every artist and their brother has covered it, to death (in my experience anyway).

Pity, because Jeff Buckley’s version, I feel, is very beautiful.
I just can’t bear hear it no longer.

“Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

@janbb Ela!! (that’s Greek for Tsss, which is Dutch for “Really? / No way?! / What a coincidence!)

It’s really sad…

Good question. Tried for a while. I failed to think of or even Internet-find a song I hate from a band I’d say I love.

“Hey Jude” by the Beatles. I sounded to me like they were just taking up air space and were secretly laughing at us for thinking it was a legitimate piece.

Naa na na na na na naaa na na na naaaa, hey Jude. and repeat until the time is filled.

@LuckyGuy Thats one of my favorites, actually.

Hey Jude refers to Lennon’s at the time newborn son Julian, McCartney wrote it especially to mark the occasion.
The naa naaa na nanna nah nah is meant to portray baby talk.

@ucme Plus its great advice on staying positive and not letting a hard world harden you. Almost as if Lennon knew he wouldnt be around to remind his son ashe grew up.

Run For Your Life by the Beatles.

Here are some lyrical excerpts:

Well, I’d rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man

Well, you know that I’m a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind
And I can’t spend my whole life
Trying just to make you toe the line

I actually like the melody and the rhythm, but I can do without the murderously possessive sentiment.

@Brian1946 -Did John sing that song?

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Brian1946 -I just listened to it. I am not surprised as I have read those kind of things about him in the past.

@ucme @KNOWITALL I get it. But, IMO, there was no reason to keep the na na na going for so long – unless he planned on dragging it out until Julian could say da da…

The cynic in me felt it was intentionally as long as they could make it so other artists (their competition) would be cut from receiving radio play time for their works.

@Lucky I took it as whimsy geared to a child. Frankly it humanized John more for me, as he did have the dark, melancholy side. Even in this song for his young child, he wants the light and love for Julian. A hopeful anthem if you will.

Take a sad song, and make it better.
You were made to, go out and get her..let her into your heart-under your skin…

Basically, find your happiness whatever it takes, imo.

@LuckyGuy It meanders on like a chant it’s true, but radio stations back then wouldn’t give the time of day for any song longer than 3 mins so your theory on monopolising the airwaves is wide of the mark.

Queen’s Bo Rap at a little under 9 mins horrified their record company because nothing close to that length had ever been released & would consequently be rejected…little did they know.

For the most part, I liked their other songs. This one bothered me from day one.
