OK guys, the holiday season approaches and I was idly thinking of what might be an amusing thread. What is your idea of musical hell.Political correctness notwithstanding: Mine would be a job as a sound engineer on a joint Whitney Houston/Mariah Carey album of slow"soulfoul" ballads-the working title would be "wailfest".
(NB, if any of you are rude about the Beatles I shall tell my Mum.)

So many notes so little time in the case of those pair <shudders>,

My own personal musical hell is every shop I have the misfortune to go into playing "The best ever Christmas album" (or whatever it's called this year), couples with that breed of busker that only appears during the late night christmas period, who insist on murdering the Beatles and the  Simon & Garfunkle song book.

Bah Humbug !

Though this christmas will have the musical highlight of gaining some more Pretty Things re-releases on CD

Hurrah !

Musical hell? Well, let's say this: Whenever you turn on a radio or a TV you'll get nothing but rap, RNB and dance music and the occaisional boy band or that type of music that is sung in my native language. When you go out to a bar or club you'll hear that same stuff all over again.

OMG I'm in hell!  :evil:

When I used to work behind a bar and Rin DMC Vs Jeson Nevins was out at the same time as the theme tune to Titanic.  They would have requests and play both about 5 times a night each.  :cry:

Or nowadays, anything with me singing.

I'd be inclined to second that, Rob. There's plenty of cr@p music around, but cr@p Christmas music takes the biscuit. Apparently it works and cons people into thinking they'd better hurry up with their Christmas shopping (even if it's still August), but I'm contrary and would refuse to buy in that shop on principle so it's actually losing them sales.

Anytime I rent a car in England and don't have any CD's and have to take the M1 north.
So many pickups, so little time
