James Blunt – You’re Beautiful
This is a song about a guy, who is “fucking high” in the subway, sees a girl, and decides that he is in love with her. That in itself is fine, however, anyone who listens to this song and thinks that it somehow relates to your relationship, please stop.
‘My life is brilliant, My life is pure’. James, you are high in the subway, how is your
life pure?…‘and I’ve got a plan, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful, it’s true’ What sort of shit- house plan is that? You can’t just chant “your beautiful” at someone and expect them to like you. Don’t try this at The Foundry people.
Coldplay – any song
Chris Martin needs to stop doing music, I liked A Rush of Blood to the Head and Parachutes, but please, please, stop. This is a personal one. Oh, and all of their songs are sad AF, definitely not first dance worthy.
One Direction – Little Things Nope
Ed Sheeran’s song writing is usually a cut above most other pop musicians, but this just sucks. I get the sentiment, but it’s so fucking boring omg stop it.
Whitney Houstin – I Will Always Love You
Whitney Houstin is an incredible singer, that is without a doubt, however, not a single other person in the world could ever do this song justice. The song itself, while being dreary and dated, is not necessarily a bad love song, but please for the love of god do not attempt it at The Craic. Purely due to the number of horrific covers of this song, I think it is a terrible love song and should never have been brought into this world.
Hinder – Lips of an Angel
You can write a song about anything, including wanting to cheat on your girlfriend, and this isn’t a bad thing from a song writing perspective. But, once again, the message in this song is missed on so many occasions. It’s about a man who hasn’t got passed his ex, and essentially wants to cheat on his current girlfriend. Good concept, not a love song.
‘Well, my girl’s in the next room, Sometimes I wish she was you… But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful, With the lips of an angel’
