There is one song that has actually forced me to leave a store when it came over the sound system. I hated it with the burning passion of a thousand suns when it came out the year I turned 13 (1973), and time has only increased my hatred of it. "Send your camel to bed" indeed. Go ahead. I dare you to listen to it.
On a different note, one year I was Christmas shopping and, of course, the store (K-Mart. Hey, my late Mom worked there for decades) had Christmas music playing over their sound system. I was stunned when Christmas from The Who's Tommy started playing. Someone evidently just looked at the title and didn't check the content. Talk about an inappropriate song for the season. I like the song and the album, but wow.
The song All Summer Long by Kid Rock. Seems like it SHOULD work and should be a decent song, but I keep waiting for Sweet Home Alabama or Werewolves of London to start, and they never do, sadly.
It's just off somehow and jarring. I don't understand why "artists" want to sample bits of other-already-made songs in their so-called songs. All I'm doing when hearing these is expecting the original song to start and thinking about that original song. Why would you want someone to think of another song when you're singing yours? I don't get it. If anyone has an example of one of these that actually works, where you kind of forget about the original one and the person singing the re-do (or up?? do) makes it their own and it, again, works, mention it.
It also doesn't help that he rhymes "things" with..."things".
