This is similar to the Comic Boy Guy-inspired "Worst Song Ever" thread. There must be some songs out there, for whatever reason, you have a hard time listening to. They might not be the "worst," but in my case, the songs are fine, it's the emotional connection to them that makes them hard to keep on the radio. I do know how to eliminate the emotional ties; I took a junior college psychology class. You just listen to them over
and over again, until the link has faded. But I'm not there yet, I guess.
My mini list:
"Fast Car," Tracy Chapman
I don't dislike the tune, but it's so dang depressing. I cannot drive if I can't turn this one off.
"Cherish," Kool & the Gang
It's an old one, probably from '84 or so. I just have too many memories associated with this one that I haven't yet come to grips with. Besides it's a relaxing one and I DON'T NEED TO RELAX! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME! I... I DON'T... Uh. Sorry. Kidding... ... seriously, it's just tough.
"Jumper," Third Eye Blind
"Adam's Song," Blink 182
The theme of these two is the reason why.
"You've Got a Friend," James Taylor
Here's a REAL old school one. I don't know why, but for some reason this song is connected to an English class assignment from high school. It always makes me sad (maybe I got an F on it or something). Another calm, slow song.
Anything by Tool, but especially "Schism"
Ugh. Sorry, they just bug me. Too dull, too repetitive. A Perfect Circle is their clone, IMO, too, so their work gets jumbled in with them.
