Picture this: It is your first night out in ages with your friends, you are drunk with not a care in the world; then your world stops spinning, your jar drops and… one of these songs are played. The night is ruined!
Any song at all by Justin Bieber
Remember that time he had 3 of his songs at 1, 2 & 3 in the UK Charts and they were constantly played in every bar and club. I didn’t mind some of his songs until they were played on every radio station nationwide on a constant repeat.
Touch my Bum – The Cheeky Girls
This one has been around for a long time now, but it still infuriates me whenever I hear it. Also people feel like it gives them an excuse to actually touch your bum – in the words of MC Hammer ‘U Can’t Touch This’.
Wonderwall – Oasis
Ridiculously overplayed song, I once heard this being played at a silent disco, as you can imagine taking the headphones off was a big mistake. Now this song has too many bad memories.
When clubs play the Glee version of anything
Don’t get me wrong, I am a lover of musical theatre and putting a cheesy spin on things is great, but I love the original versions more. For example, when someone puts the Glee version of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ on instead of the original, you know there is something wrong with the world.
#SELFIE – The Chainsmokers
Half of the song is someone talking – we listen to songs to hear people sing! It is also very much autotuned. Then there is the fact that people actually start taking out their phones to take real selfies – these people should not be allowed in public.
The Cha Cha Slide – DJ Casper
This song would only be acceptable if everyone was professionally trained in the dance before entering the club. It is the absolute worst when people are doing the dance moves but don’t know their rights from their lefts and end up spilling their drink all over you. This should also really apply to Saturday Night & The Macarena but you would think people are sensible enough to understand that they can’t have a drink in their hand because of the big dance moves. Plus, those two are absolute classics and cannot be shunned.
Peter Andre – Mysterious Girl
No Peter, please stop singing, your abs also cannot be real – no one has abs like that!
Because I Got High – Afroman
Who gave this guy a record deal? The laziest and most repetitive lyrics I ever heard.
Any DJ who has turned a classic song into a club anthem
Coldplay does not deserve to be turned into a club song. Anything that Coldplay does is the best and should be left in it’s original form. I once heard a club remix of ‘Fix You’. Are you actually kidding?!
Do you agree with me? Are there other songs that are played in clubs that really frustrate you? Let us know!
