Top Ten Best Songs Where the Artist Who Created Them Hated the Song
The Top Ten
This is the definition of a successful song the artist hated. Should be #1. - Donut
While I prefer songs like: Fat Girl, Tell Me Bitch, Lemming Trail and Jerusalem. This song is, well, okay at least. You is better though in my humble opinion
Plant's grown tired of it, and says it's themes are outdated.
Really? This is one of my faverote songs I can't imagine why. - ToptenPizza
And after all, you're my wonderwall.
And I wonder[wall] why they hate it. - Merilille
Yeah Kurt hated this song. - Userguy44
Yes, we were strangers in the night, mainly because we didn't know each other (Bill Dana) - Billyv
Can't blame them I don't like this song either - Quart
I understand why the band regret making the song. A lot of elitist DT fans always complain if they didn't hear this song in their live sets. While the band were writing special setlists with lots of long and great songs better than this. Not that this is a bad song. - IronSabbathPriest
Desmond Child wrote it but he was dissatisfied with its chart success.
So he re-wrote it for Bon Jovi as "You Give Love a Bad Name"! - Metal_Treasure
I can understand why he regretted making this. The lyrics are too sexual and the vocals are too moany and discordant for his standards, and the instrumental version is good, but not brilliant. - PositronWildhawk
Slash hates it. - Userguy44
I don't like this one either - RecklessGreed
Dio said that he didn't like the song because it is the most poppy and upbeat song on the Holy Diver album. And it is, but it's still great. - IronSabbathPriest
Supposedly, Syd Barrett was unhappy with the final product because he thought it sounded too commercial. I understand why he would think that, but it's still somewhat uncommercial when you compare it to the stuff that was most popular in 1967. - Gg2000
