Which Two Songs Do YOU Hate?

 

MacArthur Park (song)

I was driving the cute Mazda smile car to pick up my daughter from Driver’s Education when my LEAST favorite song came on the radio. Hands down, MacArthur Park, sung by Donna Summer is a song I hate and it has the potential to make me crazy. “Someone left a cake out in the rain?” my response to that is “who cares?”and “what kind of moron would do that?”  It may have deep symbolic meaning,   (doubt it) it may be a poetic mystery ( doubt it even more) but the fact is: it turns me off. My idea of water torture? This song on repeat. I don’t know why I have such a strong negative reaction to this song but ever since I first heard it, it rubbed me the wrong way. I have to turn it off  immediately or turn the volume down very low so I don’t hear it. The other song that always gave me a headache was Minnie Ripperton’s “Loving You” with its high quotient of abnormal screeching. A bunch of honeybees swarming around me is a more relaxing sound than this song that goes through my head like an over-active buzz saw through brains and gushing blood. If I could erase two songs from the universe these would be the two that I would choose. What would YOU choose?

p.s. Hey Plinky Prompts, move aside, you’ve got nothing on me.

  1. Oops and can’t read either: I hate the 1-800-Kars for Kids jingle (plays insesently (definitely spelt wrong) on the radio (often on multiple channels at the same time. Have to think of what other song I hate: there are plenty, it’s just remembering which one . . . (sorry 3 comments are all from me!)

  2. can’t type today: Try listening to an earlier version of McArthur Park, sung by Richard Harris, of all people! I always figured it was from some strange, twisted Broadway musical, or off Broadway, or way off Broadway.
