    My imagination. But I drop by the real world for m

    Whatever you do, don’t play…

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Twisted Inversely, Oct 23, 2009.

    In case you haven’t heard a list of song’s used to torture inmates at facilities like Guantanamo bay has been partially leaked. Apart from some of the obvious names like the Barney the purple dinosaur and Britney Spears the list includes artists and bands like Rage against the Machine, ACDC, Metallica, Queen, Don McLean, NWA and the Bee Gee’s.

    Now torture is bad and as humorous as being blasted by pop music sounds it is undoubtedly a horrible and degrading experience. But it got me thinking, what songs would you personally crack under?

    I’ll get the ball rolling.

    Achy Breaky Heart
    Wuthering Heights
    That yodeling guy from Eurovision… Correct that, anyone from Eurovision.

    If this is better off in the games forum feel free to move it.

    William Hung? The guy who got kicked off of American Idol...I've never watched it, so I'm not sure if that's his name.

    uhh...

    I can't think of anything else off the top of my head that i absolutely can't stand.

    I understand the point of this thread, but I am worried that posting a few songs by name and artist would offend some of the other members who might like them. So I will refrain from saying the ones which drive me crazy...but I will say this....there are several songs by high pitched squealing voiced females from the 80's. :rolleyes:

    Anything that has three to five anorexic looking boys singing about how bad their lives are, especially if they're British. Other than that... Tom Waits, but only some of his songs. I like his music, but it can be painful.

    Cold Play, The Killers, The Decemberists and Metallica are all on my don't play list, as is mainstream radio.

    It works against me- because of my unusual taste in music every time I go to a music store with friends or with my brother and there's some generic radio track playing, they always bug me with, 'hey, bet they hacked your ipod again! :p'

    Pretty much anything and everything from the Disney Pop Factory.

    Oh, also every flavor of EMO to include Screamo.

    Oh, I forgot to mention the gaggle of bands that rip off music from the 60's and 70's. It was genius four decades ago, now it's just theft.

    Old-style Japanese music I just cannot take. Also, that guy who played the fiddle, I think, on Eurovision--and won. :eek:

    I know one song I can't stand. It's called Lullaby. I don't know the author but It has something to do with Dear julliet.
    (Lydia loves that horrible song)

    Yeah, that Toni Basil song was annoying.

    I inflict torture on my son sometimes. I get the Village People's YMCA stuck in his head, and he can't easily get rid of it.
