Songs that, for whatever reason, I have failed to warm to their charm.

Songs I've Loathed has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
Almost the cause of a personal road rage following this being played on the car radio.I just loathe it & them with a passion.Don't even get me started on 2005's 'My Humps'.
I could really pick anything by this group as they're just not my cup of tea at all but in getting the link for this I've probably ended up enduring several seconds more of a song I'll happily leave a room to avoid hearing.'Give it a chance' I can hear you cry. Er..NO.
I developed a contempt for this song after being asked to put I on so many wedding videos. In searching for the video I had to check I had the right song & only had to hear the first few notes before i put up my hand and pressed the pause button with a resolute "No more-just no more".
Whilst Paul King might be a 'bloody nice bloke' this song has me reaching for the razor blades. The contrived image, the haircut, the sound. All of it. Perfectly packaged period twaddle of the 1st order.
I'm a lifelong Bowie appreciator but much of his 80's output is not on my personal playlist & although 'Let's Dance' is not his worst 80's album, the tour of the time annoyed and this single often earned a hastily removed stylus. The beginning 'I know when to go out' does it for me. OFF OFF OFF.
Heaven knows I didn't dislike Boy George (gender bending has a long tradition in pop music) but Karma Chameleon I continue to hate purely because it's so b..l..a..n..d. Very beige,very bland & very bleedin' annoying.Sorry George.
Sorry but this one always pushed my buttons.I'm just not a great guitar hero worshipper.Too long, too west coast & an attempt at irony that undermines itself.Almost everything I hated about a certain direction of music at that time.
This one has always grated on me. Maybe it's the over played cockney-esque delivery through to the "di tee di tee di do" infuriating cockney scat at the end.To me it's real fingernails across the blackboard stuff and I will metaphorically hurl a brick at any radio I catch playing it.
