Top 25 Songs that should never be played again.


Just some random conversation from this past weekend 🙂

These aren’t in any particular order but much like a Do Not Play list, it hardly matters. These songs are room-clearers for us:

Dancing On The Ceiling – Lionel Richie. Yeah. No.

Rhythm Of The Night – DeBarge. We can’t remember too many miscues by this group but this is one of them.

Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio. Really? Destroyed a great Stevie Wonder tune and I will never forget the weird video with Coolio and Michelle Pfeiffer having a stare off.

Electric Avenue – Eddie Grant. I didn’t pick this one but I’m a team player so it’s on the list.

Hello – Lionel Richie. Yep. He made it twice. And the video is banned, too.

Cherish – Kool & The Gang. This one had some morbid lyrics and a real downer.

Luka – Suzanne Vega. See above.

Fast Car – Tracy Chapman. Again, total downer of a ditty.

Don’t Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin. So over the top that it boomeranged into being a bit of a heavy song. What if you were worried and unhappy?

Let’s Get It Started – Black Eyed Peas. Meh. You could put any of their songs on this list really.

Funky Cold Medina – Tone Loc. Brings back bad frat party memories.

Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice. Please return the song to Queen and let’s be done with it.

Single Ladies – Beyonce. However, it is Liza Minnelli’s version from Sex And The City 2 that needs to never be heard again. Why didn’t they just get Beyonce to sing it in the movie??

Girl You Know It’s True – Milli Vanilli. Yeah. It was corny.

Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems – Puffy. Don’t be silly — who doesn’t want more money?

I Love Rock ‘n Roll – Joan Jett. Again, I didn’t vote for this but, if I never heard it again, I’d be cool with that.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper. It does have a quality about it that is the opposite of timeless. I’m a big Cyndi fan, though.

Walking In Memphis – Marc Cohn. This song got overplayed and never bounced back.

Black Velvet – Alannah Miles. I really don’t want to hear this again. It’s not a bad song, just didn’t turn my engine over.

Over & Over Again – Nelly & Tim McGraw. Yeah, no thanks.

We Are The World – USA For Africa. I’m okay with this song except the Bob Dylan part so, I guess I did agree with this pick.

Born In The USA – Bruce Springsteen. Love Springsteen — loathe the way politicians trot this one out during election season.

All Night Long – Lionel Richie. Once, twice, three times on the do not play list!! Congrats!

I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston. We love her, kinda don’t want to hear this again. Just makes us sadder she’s gone…

Drunk In Love – Beyonce. Over played already.


Honorable Mention:


Brick House – The Commodores. People have gone to this well far too often.

Bootylicious – Destiny’s Child. Bootylicious is Snoop Dogg’s word.

Push It – Salt n Pepa. If your party is on the ropes, Push It won’t save it.
