Sounds of Irritation

Thanks to my wonderful place of employment, there are pieces of music that will send me into a frothing rage should I hear them. Here's a small list of things I never want to hear again as long as I walk this Earth.

Anything by Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, Linda Rondstadt, Phil Collins (with the sole exception of In The Air Tonight), Billy Joel, Gloria Estefan, Rod Stewart, Air Supply, Michael Bolton or Celine Dion

Hopelessly Devoted to You by Olivia Newton-John
Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross or the cover by Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey
We're an American Band by Grand Funk Railroad
Cruisin by Huey Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow

At this point let me say that anybody who defiles a Smokey Robinson song by turning it into lite rock or easy listening deserves the most painful torturous death a human mind can possibly devise.

I now return you to the list.
