Overrated Songs

Recommended Posts

Some songs that capture the imagination of the masses to become adored sing-along favourites just leave me cold.

I was just posting in the 90s music thread when it struck me how popular Robbie Williams Angels was at the time and how much I hated it (and still do).  Another one on the list is Oasis Wonderwall. A bland dirge that somehow became their most popular track.

What songs do the Dosbods glitterati find utterly overrated?

Robbie Williams - Angels

Oasis - Wonderwall

Will add another whilst I'm thinking about it. Queen Beyonce's version of Halo (yep not her song, orginally penned by Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic)

 

This more acoustic cover by Lotte Kestner is way better and well worth a listen...

Chewing Grass

Bryan Adams, 16 weeks at No1 because everything else was shit as well with the theme tune used for a movie.

Not been interested in music since.

Yes, it's not hard to see what Terry Pratchett thought of it, and I agree with him.

His (Lennon's) brain must have been occupying the same space as that of a precious little pre-pubescent schoolgirl when he wrote it.

I think the lyrics might work better delivered as part of a hypnotherapy package because I cannot imagine any of the things he's talking about under normal circumstances.

"Imagine no possessions" intoned the man sitting in the recording studio of his prestigious home.

Any song by Phil Collins.

All of them, without any exception...

 

XYY

You fucking truffle mincer. I'm trying to have a Dosbods break but you've compelled me to reply. 

Phil Collins has some top quality work. :Old:

Anything by The Spice Girls. I have no idea how that bunch of rough cunts ever got so big. 

I do love this video though, Geri is on the verge of falling over her heels all the way through and it's bizarrely sexy. Skip to 3.20 to see her really almost go arse over tit. Like Bambi on ice.

Dosboders are on a roll. Agree with just about everythiing posted, especially @The XYY Man's nomination of Phil Colon. 

Not only is his music shit, but his voice lacks so much depth that he has to record himself inside a disused swimming bath just to get enough reverb to cover it all up.

On that note, I was going to nominate this anyway

 

 

 

And I cannot stand this.  If the colour beige had a soundtrack:

Musical equivalent of a wet blanket. The white knight beta male anthem...

I dislike this song even more upon consideration

Weirdly I don't mind that in the more laidback style

I think it's because they've turned everything up to 11 in a song that just doesn't warrant it

Laid back? You've only listened to the first 2 minutes haven't you? :Old:

I think Phil Collins is probably the greatest drummer this island has produced and I like his voice.  Though I'll admit his solo stuff doesn't really float my boat...

My nominations: any song called The Power of Love.

Gerraway and shite...!

Don Powell of "Slade" has been slightly brain damaged since his near-fatal car crash in the mid 1970s - and he still shits down the neck of that baldy talent-less bastard...

 

 

XYY

You're trying to force me into posting some videos.  If you really want to see some of Phil at his best then I've got plenty!
