    These songs are mostly from a really awful era of bubblegum music when I was young. I can't hear one of them (thank you, Today Show this morning) without the other ones coming into my head, and I HATE THEM ALL!

    • Beach Baby by "The First Class"
    • The Night Chicago Died by "Paper Lace"
    • Billy, Don't Be a Hero by "Paper Lace"
    • Seasons in the Sun by "Terry Jacks"
    • Clair by "Gilbert O'Sullivan"
    What are yours?

    Ummm... I dunno!

    Hey, I have the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room and the Siamese Cat song monster mix going through my head with snippets of When the Children Cry and Love Missile F-111... and If Today Was Your Last Day. All good songs, but not together.

    I just downloaded "Spill The Wine". I love it. What drugs were they on?

    Just call me a long haired leaping gnome.

    Raindance, by The Guess Who. Aaaaarrrrrgh!
    I've Got a brand New Pair of Rollerskates (You've Got a Brand New Key), by Melanie.
    The Super Supper March, by Dr. Seuss

    I will stop there, before I start a musicosis epidemic and end up with a lynch mob at my front door...

    I'm gonna think of you when these songs are stuck in my brain and keeping me awake at 2 a.m.! lol! So, to return the favor:

    "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy (I Got Love in My Tummy)" by the Ohio Express.

    I have the same song as Jo G -

    Say what you need to say -

    for the EXACT same reason - stupidest song ever.

    and practically ANYTHING Barbara Striesand sings...I just don't get it.

    (after seeing Step2's list - I must change my avatar signature) lol

    Don't knock "Old Man River" - some mornings when I get up, my voice is so deep it's all I can sing!

    I've got to dash now, I'll surf through my iPod in the car and find some classics for you!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Hotel California, only because the bar I worked at for 10 years had a jukebox, and when the guy's would get rip roaring drunk they would play Hotel California, over and over and over and over... well you get the picture.
    And sing very badly

    This one should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway: "Hamsterdance."
