Ouch. I'll bet many of us have a song or two like that.
The entire "Siamese Dream" album, for me ...
have turned our relationship into the sort where I just wait for him to die, so I know I’ll never, ever have to speak to him about anything ever again.
Hello! This site is completely mis-titled.
Man I could spend pages and pages covering the crap that came out from 1995 to 1996, the songs were "ruined" by someone performing them. Sorry when ever I think of song and bad memories, I think of Better than Ezra, and other post-grunge tripe that hit the air waves in that time frame. One Better Than Ezra song particularly made me cringe.

Oh man, do I ever have a ruined song collection. First on the list would be "September", by Earth Wind & Fire. Not that I'm a fan of theirs to begin with, but hearing that song now -- knife in the gut. Former client of mine, a real saucy firecracker of a lady, fun as heck to deal with and simply be around, came down with breast cancer for the second time. Didn't make it. 39. Rather than have a funeral where everybody was all depressed, she wanted this 'celebration of life' thing, which was a noble idea, but it just failed miserably. She had a video, where she talked to everybody in the church and said a very cheery goodbye, and oh -- it was horrible. Such a bright life snuffed out pointlessly, and everybody sitting there, rightfully glum and/or pissed off at the insurmountable crappiness of her dying, and he she was, talking to us from beyond the grave, trying to cheer us up. Service ended, and there was a balloon release, done to the excited happy stylins' of Earth Wind & Fire. I've never felt more nauseous in my life. And hearing that song brings it right back in an instant. Emotional suckerpunch.
Sorry Louis. That's a bad one. At least none of these are Christmas carols. (Or, if they are, don't tell me. 'Cause it's bad enough they play them non-stop from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31)
Yeah, Capt. Renault, all the songs I can't listen to were played at funerals. Wonderwall reminds me of an ex but I can't stand Oasis in general anyway.
During the tv coverage of the
Enschede Fireworks disaster
Dutch tv kept playing Radioheads' Pyramid Song in the background. I guess, because it was both moody and recent enough. Bastards.
Man, these are all long. My last ruined song has to do with watching stoned 13 year olds try to headbang to it at an Ozzfest a few years back. Now I can't listen to it without seeing them try to 'rock out'.
