The CC Weekly Weigh In: Worst Party Songs

Welcome Week is coming to an end for most of you. You have spent the past 5 days unpacking boxes (while drinking), buying books (while hungover) and stopping by every bar/house party/gutter that just so happens to have a keg in it.

And you have the pictures to prove it.

While the themes of the parties may have been different (Tiki Tuesday? Beach party? Ghetto Fabulous?), the music was not. I don’t know what it is, but it seems like there is one playlist that somehow makes its

way into every bar or house on campus. And then plays on repeat. All night.

You love it while you’re double fisting Coronoa’s, but, for the love of God, if you hear that damn song one. more. time…

Our writers know how that goes. We asked them which songs they never ever (as long as they live) want to hear at a party again. Watch your back, Flo-rida – I think your time is over.

Alex – Lakehead University: I never ever EVER want to hear Hotel California by the Eagles at the bar again. I know it seems like a strange one, but come to Thunder Bay and you’ll suffer through it at least once a night.

Kari – Florida State: “Boots with the furrrr.” Not only does this song make my ears bleed, it feels the need to accost my eyeballs as well. For some reason every girl with a FUPA feels that this is “her song” and runs to the middle of the dance floor. No thank you.

 

Carly – Grinnell: “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker. It is not good now, and it was never good. It should be eradicated.

Ali – Syracuse University: Good question. I hope never again to hear “Low” by Flo-rida. Who parties dressed in boots with furrr?

Conan – Columbia College: Montell Jordan – This is how we do it.

Sarabeth – University of Texas: I will die happy if I never hear Soulja boy again.

Kate Bean – NYU: What song do i NOT want to hear again at a party? The Titanic theme song. Yeah. It happened. I know what you’re thinking: “Kate, the mini fridge by your bed does not count as a bar. And binge drinking by yourself is not a party.” I beg to differ.

Jessica – FSU: Anything by Nickelback

Olua – I have no interest in Fergie’s (or anyone else’s) humps. I didn’t before the song came out and every time I hear it, a little part of me dies.

K – NYU: No question – “Love Generation.” I’m sure Spring Break 2006 was awesome but, really, don’t make me relive it.

Kelly – UMass: No Air by Jordan Sparks & Chris Brown…soooo overrated and over played!

Melanie – Northeastern University: “Livin’ On a Prayer.” Mostly because I think I AM Bon Jovi when I hear it and I screech it… at the top of my lungs…

Lauren – University of Michigan: Hollaback Girl. That sh*t is bananas. Oh, and “Get Low” cuz it’s gross and people are always pointing out windows and walls. Why?!

Erica – Kent State: JOURNEY, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” I really don’t think any explanation is necessary.

Victoria: That revolting, wretch-inducing, cringe-worthy Kelly Clarkson song “Since You’ve Been Gone”. For some mysterious reason, bars keep this cheesy tune in serious rotation. Since bars lack pre-pubescent angsty patrons, I’m puzzled.

Amber – Old Dominion: I’m a dance freak so I rarely get tired of songs, but I was rather happy when everyone stopped trying to “crank dat soulja boy.”

Noa – Colorado University, Boulder: Anything by Avril. Barf.

 

Sara – NYU: “Baby Got Back.” I actually really like that song (ah, nostalgia) but it always seems to make the DJ really grumpy.
