I Hate This Song, but I Can’t…Change…Stations

There are many songs I can’t stand. I am especially swift at changing channels when a One Direction song comes on (though that doesn’t actually seem to occur that often anyway). But there is one song I despise and yet am compelled to listen to every time I hear it.

That, my friends, is “Lightning Crashes” by Live. A song, like many, that annoys me immensely. Yet, unlike the others, I know every. Single. WORD! And cannot help myself from singing along.

I’m not sure if it’s just that this song was everywhere in the 90s (though my mom didn’t really remember it), or if it’s managed to ingrain itself in my head for another reason. It really is frustrating every time it comes on the radio. The good part is I don’t listen to the radio that much. Pandora’s 90s alt station plays it quite often, though. One of these days I’m going to have to force myself to give it a thumbs down.

Do you have a song you can’t stand, but end up listening to often anyway? What is your least favorite song right now?


  1. I feel exactly the same way about this song. I want to hate it, but I always listen to it start to finish. Or maybe I do like it but I don’t like that I like it. It definitely was EVERYWHERE in the 90’s and it kind of makes me feel like a cool little kid again. But yeah, I get the compelling/annoying dynamic.
