These songs are on my banned list. While I used to love them, they are so overplayed that I no longer have to hear them again. Add this to the everyone loves list that I don't have to hear anymore:

Edina Howard ~ Freak Like Me

If anybody says Low Rider by War, they are lying. It's the Macarena of the 1970s.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

It may be your last

Next year we may all be living in the past

Not so, Low Rider is known today by young people because it's in Grand Theft Auto and was the theme of The George Lopez Show and is played in movies & TV shows. GTA has been really popular for years now. Low Rider also been sampled quite a bit and is still played at low rider car shows, and is played on the Adult R&B station today. Anyway, I still hear Macarena every so often, so it too is popular with many people. What you like or other people on this site likes has nothing to do with what a lot of people like and what is popular with the mainstream. Many people on this site don't seem to like anything that is popular. Some here trash The Beatles, and they've sold more than anyone else. lol

.

I would say that Kate Bush doesn't really belong in this thread. I've never heard a Kate Bush song other than the one on a Peter Gabriel album, and I've listened to Top 40 radio, and followed the Billboard charts.

I was just comparing them creatively. I find the singing and the music of Low Rider boring beyond words. George Lopez is one of my favorite shows. Still hate the theme. I know most people do like it so I'll retract my statement.

I take it you're not into low rider culture, which is what the song is about. If you're into Mariah/Celine/Whitney style singers, I guess the vocals in War's songs wouldn't appeal to you. But many genres don't really have that like folk music. Celine's style of singing wouldn't really work in a Peter, Paul & Mary type group.
