Oh, so many. And as usual Rockman leads the pack.

One thing you learn pretty quick: most of these "composers" cannot write decent lyrics to save their lives.

Chuck Berry does not have that excuse for My Ding A Ling, though.

Off the top of my head - most Springsteen songs, most Mick solo songs, and the Stones' Streets of Love.

Love Sugaree, love Paperback Writer, but for that one probably had to be there. It was meant to be funny, but the heavy riddims really made the song. The (New) Breed from Sacramento had a similar song they copied from this concept, Want Ad Reader I believe it was called. That one was dumb but no one ever heard of The Breed anyway. Sugaree, I think is funny as hell, everyone knows a girl they could have sex with but didn't want to be seen in public with, so just don't tell them that you know me, babe.

American Pie, for sure, God I hate that drivel.

Was playing cards earlier with friends and had the radio on-- Springsteens "Blinded by the Light" came on and I could not believe how 'cringe" worthy that song was: "little early pearly came by in his curly wurly and asked me if I needed a ride" ---I mean, WTF
Any songs that make you cringe when you hear them ?

Most Springsteen makes me cringe. grinning smiley

There was this radio hit in the 80s but the artist name escapes me at the moment, but the lyrics go:

We don't have to take our ... clothes off
To have a good time ... na na


or something close to that. Whenever I heard that I wanted to punch someone in the face!!

I believe My Ding a Ling was Chuck's only #1 song in the US!

"Good Morning, Starshine" - Oliver, his other hit "Jean" sucks too.

"Piano Man" - Billy Joel, a weak ass attempt to be Harry Chapin

Any Vaudeville type songs by McCartney

Any song by Bruce, Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Earle, etc. that contains a political rant.

"Let's Spend Some Time Together" and the SNL show from 78

"Whole Lotta Yoko"

I don't get the hate for "Sugaree" though. Love that song.

I do give credit for the Eagles using "reggae" as their basis for Hotel California. Lyrics are pretty clever and funny too, the first million times you hear them.

As a class, I would like to add anything Steve Miller touched post-Boz Skaggs. The worst cliche ridden lyrics ever. Just impossible to listen to. Didn't stop them from being big hits though.

And yeah impossible as it might be to believe, My Ding A Ling was CB's only #1 I have heard. Just no accounting for taste.
