Songs You Never Want to Hear

Posted March 1, 2010 9:12 a.m. EST

What are the songs you would never like to hear again? Maybe they’re good songs that have been overplayed on the radio. Maybe they are bad songs that rose to fame on gimmicky lyrics.

I surveyed the WRAL newsroom this morning. Here are some of the tunes high on the irritation list:  “This Kiss,” “We Built This City on Rock ‘n Roll,” “Every Breath,” “American Pie,” “I Will Always Love You,” “Hanky Panky,” and ”Achy Breaky Heart.”

Brian Shrader says these songs are like bad high school poetry with clumsy, clunky imagery.

What songs do you love to hate? Let ‘em fly!
