Mine is Sympathy For The Devil Song by The Rolling Stones

I could not take the background singers and it would enrage me!

hoo hooo hoo hooo hoo hooo for 6 solid minutes!.

I studied the song and the story behind it and became at piece with it eventually.

I just heard it on a YouTube channel and realized I like it now.

    The Cranberries’ Zombie.

    I just didn’t get it, probably hadn’t learned about The Troubles yet. It was also pretty inescapable for a time when I was a kid. I just found the chorus to be irksome.

    It was actually an Elizabeth Zaharoff video that opened my eyes to it again. She’s done that for a few songs that I either didn’t like, or completely missed out on.

      It’s a really bloody weird experience as an Irish child of the 80s to be on a dancefloor in Kuala Lumpur and suddenly loads of Asians are moshing to a song about how your parents’ generation are going to get everyone killed for pointless hatred. “Why are you crying? Don’t you like Halloween?”

      I love Charismatic Voice! Her channel has introduced me to a lot of really awesome music that I’d never heard of before, and has gotten me to really study some other songs I’ve already known and discover new things to love about them. I’ve been watching her for a few years now, and it’s been really fun watching her evolve into a true metalhead.

        I’ve literally teared up from songs I didn’t care about before after her analysis.

      I worked at a restaurant when this first came out that had a jukebox with a “Play most popular” button. The thing was plays that came from that button counted toward which song was “most popular” so I basically ended up listening to that song on a near constant loop every day of every shift. It was maddening.
