What's one huge music hit that you don't like?

Tina Turner's  "What's Love Got To Do with It?" is the one that inspired my question for me.

    Respect, Aretha Franklin  This is my all time most hated recorded song.

    I could not stand Blue Bayou by Linda Ronstadt when it was popular.  Now, I love it.

    I actually thought of you and Franklin's song, along with my choice, when I posted my question. I've noted your thoughts on that song.  :)

    I admit I've always liked Ronstadt's "Blue Bayou."  :)

    Interesting! :)
    I've liked that song. It's interesting to me, though, how we all have varying thoughts to things,

    Yeah I found it a little too mellow compared to some of their other songs like Space Trucking and Highway Star. Cheers!

    Varying thoughts to things is what makes the rocking World go round. Queen claims it is fat bottomed girls that make the rockin' world go round but I disagree with that. Fat Bottom Girls by Queen was a huge hit but I didn't fancy it when it first came out. Cheers! This post was edited by Nanoose at January 24, 2023 4:58 PM MST

    I admit that song is my favorite song by Queen, ha.  :)   
    Combines well what I like best from them -- ight-vocal harmonies and good rock.
    And always Cheers to you, too!

    I get it, yeah.  :)
    Interestingly to me, Celine Dion's version of that song appears in the movie only over the movie's end credits.
    I much, much prefer the song as it appears in the movie. And I like the vocalist in the movie score itself over Dion.
    No words to the movie score during the movie - - just "ahh-ing"- - beautiful to me. I hope you have a chance to give it a listen.    :)

    “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

    “Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car”

    “Sweet Child of Mine”

    “Pour Some Sugar on Me”

    Many, many others.

    I've read your version to the car song often. I've not ever really liked it, either.

    Don't Worry (you'd think I would like it, ha) got old really fast to me.

    "Don't' Worry, Be Annoying."  :)

    Without looking them up, I offhand don't know who did the other two songs .

    "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc!!!!  For the love of God, how did that song reach number ONE—in 28 countries nonetheless—and go double platinum?!?!?

    :) Your answer could be my brother's take on that song, verbatim. He hated it.  :)

    I actually like it but I certainly can understand how people don't like it.  :)

    I mean, in all fairness, I did find it catchy when I was younger (way younger) but, now, I can truly see it for the anathema it is.  It's a "Disco" song that was released in 1980, the year Disco died, and is the quintessential swan song for the genre.  It's clearly a rushed project with little concept and poor planning that was oviously a last ditch effort to make money before the dying genre breathed its last.  It's a shame too as I feel the lead singer of the group at the time, Cynthia Johnson, was quite a competent singer.
