1) Edward Bear....his lyrics (put my full length mirror down??..he's a man for c's sake)are a close second to his voice for annoying..
2) Dan Fogelberg (R.I.P.)...leader of the band? one of those records you throw off a 90 storey building
3)Celine Dion...you have to live in Quebec to really appreciate how over exposed this little home town darlin' really is...
4)Allen Sherman...funny stuff but i'd rather listen to any one of our 30 or so cats wailing in heat..
5)Bette Midler..amazing woman, superb talent, but have you really listened to how mediocre and grating her voice is?
6)James Blunt...after my wife forced me to listen to his first album in the car about 700 times, I've reached a new level of disdane for this boring monotone one album wonder...I ended up selling the car and(accidently)left the album in the car's cd player...we're up to about 300 listens to his new album thoug, should have kept the old Honda..his new album is just miserable...
7) Rufus...despite my daughter trying to "learn me" about the genius of Rufus, i'm still wondering how he gets away with singing the same note for every lyric of every song he does. Move over Kermit the frog...whining voice or what??
8)Now don't take this personally...Willie Nelson...undoubtedly a brilliant, hugely poular talent, but i'm still waiting for him to sing a song on key...
9)Any singer that whispers or talks during a song. The only thing that annoys me more are children doing a chorus for holiday songs or T.V.commercials.
10)Joe Walsh...again a talented rock gutarist, but unfortunately no-one's had the nerve to tell him he can't sing. If I hear Rocky Mountain Way one more time....i'm sure we all agree on this one..
Rounding out the selections, here's another 10 that make you wanna scream...
Leonard Nimoy, "Proud Mary"
Sebastian Cabot, "It Ain't Me Babe"
Mae West, "Day Tripper"
Phyllis Diller, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"
Pat Boone, "Smoke on the Water"
Joe Pesci, "Got to Get You Into My Life"
Andy Griffith, "House of the Rising Sun"
Telly Savalas, "Loving Feeling"
William Shatner, "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"
Bing Crosby, "Hey Jude"
If you really feel the need to hear these atrocities...
