What song did you used to love but now can’t stand?

Most Friday’s on Twitter and Facebook, we ask a question to stimulate conversation with our friends, followers, and fans. Often, we get a variety of answers ranging from interesting to funny and, sometimes, odd.

Nonetheless, we enjoy racking our brains for a good question and love the responses. This is the first time we’ve posted responses on the blog and look forward to doing more.

You’ll notice quite a few links on people/band names because we want to encourage you to find out more about them. By the way, if you’re on Twitter or Facebook, please follow us and the people you see here. Also, please re-tweet or share our post.

What song did you used to love but now can’t stand?

Tracy Ready @TraceTV – It has to be “Mustang Sally”…she’s been driven into the ground.

Karena K @karenak – The Chipmunk Song, I was a child so I have an excuse 🙂 Alvin…ALVIN!!! or maybe that’s not the worst. Mirrors by Sally Oldfield, I loved that, now it would make me ill! Saccharine!

Michelle @RageMichelle – Bohemian Rhapsody

Michael St James @michaelstjames – Great q! This came up the mother day- “Rock You Like. Hurricane” – learned the riff, loved it. At some point, It’s just annoying now.

Tony Boyd @EveretteABoyd – I got a big list but I’ll give ya just one…..”Flirtin’ With Disaster”.

James Rannefeld @JamesRannefeld – The Night Chicago Died

lauramariemusic @lauramariemusic – Must admit I really enjoyed Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines (as a dance song) when it first came out. Actually didn’t initially think of it as rapey either. But then the hype/insanity/lawsuit surrounding it … meh … it just sounds like failure now.

D. Shoji Nakamoto‏ @DShojiNakamoto – Oh, I don’t know…maybe “American Pie”?

The David Bowers @TheDavidBowers – Up, Up, And Away – The Fifth Dimension

(((Randall Beggs))) @RandallBeggs – Listen To The Music by The Doobie Brothers

Tim @tdorty64 – early 70’s pop music

Kilborn Alley @Kilborn Alley – Some of those songs you do with the unrehearsed guest singer, “Every Day I’ve Got the Blues” may be the worst. Songs we still love or at least like but go down tougher today, even tougher the BETTER they are done–“Ain’t Nobody’s Business,” “Good Morning Little School Girl.”

Popa Tunes @popa2unes – I Touch Myself

Miss C @misscharlie – Man, some of the ones on my list may actually cause visceral reactions. You sure you want to know? (To which we responded, “C’mon Charlie, don’t hold out on us). Oh, ok. 1. Sinead O’Connor Nothing compares2u 2. Extreme More than words 3. Metallica Nothing else matters.

Stan Stewart @muz4now – “Two Princes” – can’t wait to read Jana’s and Derek’s responses. How about you, TB?

Jana Pochop @janapochop – Oh man. Ones that wore out are Give Me One Reason by Tracy Chapman and Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You. From your friendly pop radio addict.

Elam McKnight @ElamMcKnight – Tennessee Whiskey

RavenVal @RavenVal – Many. I tie songs to experiences and people. So, I find it hard to listen to great songs ruined by bad memories I can’t detach from them.

Denise Hudson @RangerDenni I used to like the Beatles ‘Run For Your Life’ but now I sorta just want to make a rebuttal song for it so I can hear it again.

Bob Mann @bmannatx – One eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater…

Huckleberry Quick @Huckleberryquik – Not sure????

Clay Hichens @Clay Hichens – American Pie

Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine @BigBlendMag – Hotel California!

Whiteboy_Slim @Whiteboy_Slim – I got nothing. It would appear that every song I used to like I still do, and I had a natural aversion to crappy songs from an early age!

Leona’s Sister @LeonasSister – There are many. A lot of great tunes, but they have been beat to death.

Gary Benny @grbenny – Can’t think of even one! Probably several I like better now.

Prove it! @hilldoc There’s a lot of folkie stuff from the ’60’s that I don’t want to hear anymore.

Jimmy Drounette – every hymn..ever.

Lizzie Harrah – Snowbird by Anne Murray. Embarassing, but I was 6 years old.

Nancy Stevens – Freebird

Jay Brown – She’s A Lady – Tom Jones…when I was young I did a spot on Tom Jones impression.

Strong Jen – Country Roads by John Denver. Heard and sang for a million times in every version.
