30 Songs In 30 Days – Day 2

Day 2 – Your Least Favourite Song

Don’t Worry, Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin

This is a very tough category!  There are many songs that I cannot stand listening to, and picking just one was a challenge.  I set myself a couple of basic rules – it couldn’t be something that was “intentionally annoying” (so that excludes novelty records like The Birdie Song, Timmy Mallett etc.) and it had to be what I would call a proper song (thus excluding a lot of the dance music that irritates me so much).  I soon realised that I am truly a grumpy old man, as most of the songs on my shortlist (OK, OK it was quite a long list actually) were cheerful, let’s all be jolly type tracks that some people find uplifting or at least bring a smile but make me want to jump under a bus.  My final choice is what I think is the most annoying of these, but really is here representing all songs of its kind.  And my dedication to this 30-day song challenge is demonstrated by the fact that I actually looked for it on YouTube and endured the first few seconds to make sure it was the right version.
