Let’s face it, the easiest category in the list! It could be like shooting fish in a barrel! But I will avoid the obvious choices; James Blunt, Westlife etc. etc. and go for one particular song that to this day awaits me in a particular room in hell, to be played on a loop endlessly until I’m snapping off my own toes to fruitlessly plug my ears!
That song, Ladies & Gentlemen, is…. “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus! Yes, that seemingly harmless harbinger of terminal earwormery of Dantean proportions! Unlike most songs that I hear, dislike and can then happily erase from my memory, this one would shoot straight into your brain like some alien invader in the first few opening bars and then that was it! Too late, that hideous whiney pap was in your brain, I’d find myself waking up in the morning, days later, with it STILL in my head, aarrrggghh! It came to the point that if it came on the radio I would physically dive across the room to turn it off while consciously singing another song to myself to keep it out! Not, I’m sure you’ll agree, altogether safe when driving.
Just adding this clip to this post is like handling nuclear waste, just one accidental slip and a click of the play button….. 😈
