I'd retire all Rap, although I don't consider it music.  I realize "to each his own" but I feel sorry for those who consider that music and who haven't been exposed to the real thing.

It was heavily criticized for making light of mental illness, and many stations quit playing it for that reason.

Although I love Boston and feel like a traitor, I have to nominate Sweet Caroline sung by Neil Diamond and anyone else. I never could stand that song and during baseball season it is ubiquitous in Boston. Hate. That. Song.

Oh, my, yes. And every other Bobby Goldsboro song. Remember (gag) "See the Funny Little Clown" and "Watching Scotty Grow"?

an1532 -- the Bobby Goldsboro song was "Honey." I agree, that song should heve been killed before it was written.

I liked Journey's "Wheel in the Sky." Other than that, I completely agree with all of InsertCleverNameHere's selections, and I'd add anything by Christopher Cross or Olivia Newton John.

You Light Up My Life by Debbie Boone makes me want to hurl myself off a bridge.  Ditto Billy Don't Be a Hero, Tie a Yellow Ribbon, and The Night Chicago Died.  Also, anything by Air Supply or Journey will have me retching within nanoseconds.

Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again Naturally" is a real downer. I change the station every time it is played.
