I hate Bryan Adams

I'm Wayne Kerr, and if there's one thing I hate... it's Bryan Adams songs being played on PA systems at railway stations. There should be a law against ubiquitous performance of Bryan Adams in public places (perhaps under the Geneva Convention, if we're still signatories to that oh-so-September-10 piece of paper, that is). I was subjected to Everything I Do I Do It For You whilst waiting for the train home this evening. That braying, jeans-too-tight vocal, and that moose-mating-call guitar riff were still looping in my head when I got off the train. Not a pleasant experience.

I hear you. Bryan Adams should be shot on sight :)

if it prevented you from defacing private property or loitering then it has served its purpose. why should they stop it? it's there to make train stations yoof-unfriendly, and, given your reaction, could probably be interpreted as a backward compliment! of course, this kind of 'solution' may be exactly what's causing such wanton acts of destruction as the ultimate 'moving violation' - the train set on fire between hampton and sandringham last night.

Come to think of it, Bryan Adams's probably better for warding off ersatz homeboys than playing classics like _The Ride Of The Valkyries_, which tends to encourage them to do things like invade Poland. Or set train carriages on fire.

If I was representative of 'yoof' in musical tastes, I'd probably be more keen on going to Livid.

And they don't just play Bryan Adams; in between they have various Spice Girl-esque R&B-pop filler and such, which is probably not yoof repellent.

They even occasionally have some decent stuff. Well, by decent I mean Stevie Wonder, Brand New Heavies, and Jamiroquai (their more recent stuff - nobody seems to remember that they were around before "Travelling Without Moving"). They aren't all everybody's cup of tea; certainly better than Bryan Adams though.

Jamiroquai. Heh.

And they keep playing that "Ineverreallylikedyouanyway" song; it's some kind of 90s grunge-styled alternapop, probably from the credits of Dawson's Creek or Friends or some similar shite, performed by either Alanis Morissette or some imitator thereof.

I'd rather shag a donkey.

Wow, that was so insightful it just deserved to be posted twice.

Hey hey! (That "I Never Really Loved You Anyway" was by the Corrs, an Irish family band. My brother recently went through a Corrs phase, which was rather interesting; especially when they started to cover R.E.M. and he refused to believe it...)
