What is the worst romantic music?
« on: 16/06/2010 21:08:16 »
Never put your i-pod on shuffle when you are having a romantic moment with your lover. The theme from the A-Team wasn't too bad but I'd forgotten I'd downloaded Monty Pythons Flying Circus.

OK in your opinion, what piece of music would most dampen your romantic moment.

If "There's no one quite like grandma" doesn't kill your thoughts of romance then there's possibly something wrong with you.

Anything by Sydney Devine.

One really good one (can't remember the title now) ended with;

"and they handed me the letter edged in black"

If you use Spotify, the broadcaster & columnist Chalrie Brooker created a playlist called "Aural Contraceptive" - does exactly what it says on the tin.

No Karen, The Queen song is quite good because it starts off slow and then at the end it all goes bonkers. Yes it is on my i-pod!

This piece by Chopin - beautiful as it is - is guaranteed to quash the romantic moment.

Anything by the smurfs; the Worzels; the baron nights; any variety of muppets. All those ghastly "novelty" records like Joe Dolce's "Shadup your face", Black Lace's "Supreman". or any of the others parodied by this.


For a bonus point, what's the other top 40 hit that rhymed Eskimo with Arapaho?

The "Grand Old Duke of York" might tend to put the kibosh on things;

And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only half-way up,
They were neither up nor down"
