Here's your chance to be the controller. The possibilities are unlimited. This is just another fun thread. Make a playlist of songs you absolutly love and another for songs that you can't stand. Like politics, music can bring out the extremes and outspoken feelings in us. Have fun! I will try to list both playlists by decade to make it easier. It's your choice what you do!

Quoting zippyjet (Reply 2): Paper Roses (early 70's forgot the female singer but it sucked)
That would be Marie Osmond.

The Carpenters did a remake of Please Mr. Postman in what, 1975? Granted it wasn't one of their best, but I dare you to try and find anyone else on the planet who would say that Karen Carpenter couldn't sing!

Quoting NoUFO (Reply 7): So you were not spared from this crap? Serves you Rednecks right
Yeeha! Have I got a story for you!
Back in 1984 when this was a hit, I worked at a small radio station upstate in Maryland (Have De Grace). If there is a hell this would be one of it's radio stations . I worked one Sunday Afternoon on the AM side. There was an FM station too.
My fellow DJ/announcer Todd was manning the FM. This place still featured reel to reel tape decks circa 1956! Correction, Todd was in the so called production studio. I had to man both stations. All of a sudden at 707 decibels I hear 99 Luftballons. Bad enough but wait! There's more. Todd kept playing this song dozens of times. Oh lovely, this dude has lost it! In the middle of nowhere and I had two stations to run with news etc. I was minutes away from my scheduled local newscast. There was a local story of a serial rapist loose on this small town! Oh my! (serial rapist of farm animals that is)
Bovines and goats were the victims. Also this rapist (s) liked doing dirty deeds done with sheep. So imagine me having to read this breaking story and keep a straight face and have Nina bleating out that song. The locals if they heard this over my critter caper story would think this farm animal molesting perv worked at our station. So, I put on one of the corn honker tunes and went to check up on him. If I had to call for a meat wagon to cart him off to the puzzle house...
I ask him if he was OK. He then said"don't you get the ramifications of this deep song and it's impact on the human psyche?" With that it was news time and I told him to rest well and did the news cow shagger and all. Thank God no one called. I then went into the crapper and lost it laughing sounding like Mutely the asthmatic cartoon doggy.
Figures, I've never met a song from an Osmond that I tolerated. At least Marie has MILF'D out in her middle age post DWTS.
The Carpenters had musical talent. But, Please Mr. Postman was so horrid that it didn't even sound like Karen. White Bread artists are better to leave some of the R&B classics alone. Remember Pat Boon's covers back in the day?

She was the soundtrack to my pre-adolecence. Thanks, dad. It was what he decided we should listen to. That and surf music. Have you heard? Everybody knows the bird is the word. I'll give you a word! Oh, wait... family forum...
I like the song 99 Red Baloons. Both German and English. I really like changing up different songs and heard a really great version of 99 Red Baloons by Goldfinger. Check it out, if you are one of the ones who does not hate that song.
Oh it gets worse.
He made us dance to other songs such as;
Bad Boys Stick Together - Wham!
Let's Hear if For The Boys - Denise Williams
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Karma Chameleon - The Culture Club
Break My Stride - Matthew Wilder
We had to wear leotards too. It was a school of performing arts and everyone had to take classes in other disciplines. I went there for art. Yet I still had to take classes in music, dance, choir and drama.
Come to think of it, it wasn't a gym teacher, it was the dance class in place of P.E. at that school.
Even the art classes was a waste because I wanted to draw and design houses, buildings, airports and subway stations.
Instead I wasted a year drawing baskets of fruits & flowers and force to wear leotards and dance to songs by Wham! and the Culture Club.
Though that experience did encourage me to learn a string instrument (violin and string bass) and today I still play guitar & bass.
