IWantToTellYou Posted: Stairway To Heaven. Yes, so sue me. I HATE this song.

Oh, you're not alone. I hate that song too. TOTALLY overrated. But then, I've never "gotten" the whole Zep thing at all...
Oh, and I agree about "Under My Thumb"...the lyrics are so awful that I can't even forget them and just listen to the cool COOL sound of that song.

Yeah, definitely agree about Stairway To Heaven -- ugh! And Free Bird. Double ugh!
I definitely agree with you, Rell, about Under My Thumb -- the music is so cool, the neat intstruments...but the lyrics totally overshadow that for me. It's such a stark contrast, the great music and the ugly, horrid lyrics! The really obnoxious thing is that I really believe that Mick Jagger DOES treat women that way, even now. I find it sickening.
And Val, I know what you mean about "If I Had A Million Dollars," it's overplayed. They were using it here in NY State for a while as the theme song for the lottery, so you can imagine that it was easy to get sick of it. However, I do like Barenaked Ladies otherwise -- though I can understand if you are Canadian how you might be sick of them. They probably get more airplay up in Canada than they do here in NYC.
I guess I did mean "All Apologies" when I was complaining about that Nirvana song. I can't stand them so much that I didn't know it was the wrong title, though I certainly knew what song I was talking about, and clearly so did other people. Still hate it, no matter what it's called.
Oh, and while I'm at it...though I do recognize their place in musical history (overrated though it is), I can't STAND the Sex Pistols. One of the worst experiences of my life was being forced to listen to "Never Mind the Bollocks" several times in a row by a so-called "friend" back when it was new. I don't think I ever got over the trauma!
And it's not that I don't like Punk, either, because I do like some, by other groups, ones who could actually PLAY. And they didn't have to play WELL, either -- I mean, I like the Ramones. It's just that I am not and never have been of the opinon that simply making a loud, discordant noise and shouting nasty words over it constitutes "music."
