An article put out this week stated that some prison guards in Oklahoma recently got fired for playing "Baby Shark" on a loop for inmates. They considered it a form of torture...which got JStew & Cori thinking... What song would you consider torturous if it were to be played on a continuous loop?
JStew: For me, it's gotta be 'Sweet Child O Mine' by Guns and Roses. Don't get me wrong, I love G&R, but that particular song has not only been ridiculously overplayed on the radio, but I've played it hundreds of times on cover gigs. So it has a very special, if not dark, place in my heart. Even at work, if that one comes on, I either turn it down, or I magically need to go the bathroom til it's over. Hahaha.
Cori: As a mom (and I think any parents out there have likely been in the same situation) my kids often make it their mission in life to annoy the living daylights out of me with songs. I actually believe the creators of certain children's songs are actually sadists, as there's just no way they didn't take delight in coming up with the most terrible sounds on the planet. The Barney Theme Song, The SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song, The Song That Never Ends...I rest my case. In recent years, as YouTube has grown in both availability and popularity, it seems the effort to create tortuous music has doubled, if not tripled. Look up (or don't) the "It's raining Tacos" song or "The Derp" song. Can I name just one? No. Because of my children, I could give you a lengthy list. Although, one personal least-fav that always sends chills down my spine when I have to play it...What Does The Fox Say?
A lot of your choices were all over the map, but that just proves it's a very individual subject. But... in all their glory, here were your nasty earworms.
Sheldon Ka'Voch Eugene Strout Jr. This is the song that never ends, it goes on and on my friends. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it because this is the song that never ends. I used to torture my girls with when they were younger.
