Top 10 Questions to Ask Yourself When Hating a SongI certainly have experience with hating songs, so I decided to make this list. There is also a list of questions to ask yourself when hating a music artist, which inspired me to make this list about hating just a certain song.
I've hated most of the songs I hate since the first time I've heard them. I absolutely can't stand songs like "Baby", "Good 4 U", and "Dance Monkey" despite only hearing those songs a few times in my life.
I only started to hate What About Us after it was overplayed. I got sick of hearing that song after one day it came on 4 different radio stations in less than 20 minutes, and began to show seething rage towards it after hearing it 3 times in one day on multiple occasions in the couple months afterward.
In the case of What About Us, it's just that song that I hated. I like Pink's older songs. Same with Love So Soft. I like Kelly Clarkson's older songs.
It's definitely the artist. I. HATE Camilla Cabello, Paloma Faith, Dua Lipa, etc. and I despise their songs. It's probably my taste though, - rock has been dead for years now.
Just not my taste, probably for both the songs I hated.
In the case of What About Us, probably the message in that song, although that alone is not enough for me to like a song. However, people like Love So Soft because 1. It's by Kelly Clarkson, 2. I can't think of another reason.
In the case of Love So Soft, I felt like Kelly Clarkson put almost no effort into that song.
That's very important
I just felt Love So Soft was overrated. In fact, both the songs I hated were probably just overrated in my opinion.
In the case of What About Us, when that song came on I used to always remember how we were driving to Tampa two days before Hurricane Irma hit where I live, and I thought the house was going to get destroyed. Although that association has kind of faded in my mind, I still don't like the song.
In the case of What About Us, probably both the singing and the melody (there's not much of a beat either), but definitely not the message which is good. In the case of Love So Soft though, the singing is good, but the melody and beat are bland, and I'm not sure about the message considering it's a generic pop tune.
In the case of Love So Soft, I felt like Kelly Clarkson was going downhill in musical quality. I even prefer her 2003-2012 songs to Heartbeat Song.
