    Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog.
    Rock the Casbah.
    Songs from the 50s that tell a story, e.g. "Last Kiss" (yeah Pearl Jam covered it, and I love Pearl Jam, but that song sucks even when Pearl Jam does it!)

    MaNaMaNa was irritating as can be, and it got played everywhere for a while.

    Everything by Andrew Lloyd Webber. (I mean his entire output, I don't know or care if he ever wrote a song called "Everything").

    I had to suffer through a performance that was a review of his most known songs for the sake of offering "culture" to the students I was teaching last summer. Thankfully, nobody realized that the lemonade and iced teas the faculty were drinking in the back row while chaperoning them were actually whiskey sours and long island iced teas. I finally asked the two faculty who were teaching music and theater in the program if all of his songs were the same melody with different lyrics. They nodded in agreement and were as tortured by the experience as the science and math faculty. If this year's program involves anything by him, I'm volunteering to be the person who drives the smaller van to transport sick kids home early rather than chaperoning on the buses that have to stay the whole time.

    Whatever is on popular radio today.

    (damn kids, get off my lawn).

    Seriously though, I like (fringe) electronic music, I like silly, psychedelic nonsense, I have quite an open mind for music, but I cannot abide the trash they are playing on the radio the last couple of years with the one-note synthesizer and the LMFAO, and auto-tune, and the complete absense of melody, harmony, rhythm and groove. I mean, what is left when you remove all of those things? I might as well put my head in the toaster!

    I guess every family has its black sheep. His father William Lloyd Webber was a teenage musical prodigy, organist, composer, and eventually teacher at two of the main London music colleges (and his music is probably about due for a revival, after being completely forgotten). One of WLW's often-repeated criticisms of his students' compositions was "why did you write 6 pages when you could have said as much in 6 bars".

    Like many kids, I guess ALW ignored parental advice.
