    Coldplay - Viva la Vida Vs U2 - Elevation

    Will likely always vote U2 this competition if I can.

    Creedance Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary Vs Rihanna & Drake - Work

    Can guess who nominated CCR! Cracking tune though.

    Ed Sheeran - Afterglow Vs Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

    Not my favourite S&G song, but still far from overrated.


    Christy Moore - Ride On Vs Britney Spears - Baby One More Time

    Sorry, I don't feel strongly enough about either of these for a vote.

    Coldplay - Viva la Vida - it's Coldplay, of course it's overrated

    Rihanna & Drake - Work - if it had been the Tina Turner version of Proud Mary it would have gotten my vote, but the original is still the best

    Ed Sheeran - Afterglow - explain Ed Sheeran to me. I just don't get it. He's like the new David Gray.

    Christy Moore - Ride On - a bigger pile of turgid crap you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. How this, or any of Christy Moore's other songs tbh, are so beloved will remain one of life's great mysteries. I don't even like the Britney song that much, but it's a classic by comparison.

    There is no explanation for Ed Sheeran. None.



  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Never heard of that Ed Sheeran song lol 😂

    I think he's definitely over rated but that song probably isn't....

    Rihanna/Drake song isn't overrated either it's just a pile of shite 😂

    Anyways prob too late but

    Coldplay

    CCR

    Simon & Garfunkel

    Britney - never heard that Christy Moore song either so can't consider it overrated



  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    @Necro has never heard Ride On?

    Are you sure you're actually Irish? How do you not know Ride On? You're taking the piss right?



  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    I'm not the greatest Christy Moore fan, doesn't seem like a bad thing tbf 😋



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Hi. This new site blows.

    Anyway, here are my votes;

    U2 - Elevation (The absolute cringe of these spanners)

    Rihanna & Drake - Work (There’s a point in this song where Rihanna isn’t even saying words, she’s just going dur dur dur. F*ck that noise)

    Ed Sheeran - Afterglow (I nominated 3 Ed Sheehan efforts, this wasn’t one of them. Still, he deserves to be slated)

    Christy Moore - Ride On (Christy Moore is a sweaty curmudgeonly auld bollox)



  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    You don't need to be a fan, its a stone cold Irish classic - amazed it wasn't drilled into you as a child. 😂



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,361 ✭✭✭✭Kolido


    Coldplay - Viva la Vida 3 Vs 6 U2 - Elevation

    Creedance Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary 1 Vs 8 Rihanna & Drake - Work

    Ed Sheeran - Afterglow 9 Vs 0 Simon and Garfunkle - Bridge Over Troubled Water

    Christy Moore - Ride On 2 Vs 6 Britney Spears - Baby One More Time

    FWIW, that SaG pick was mine, I hate that song, anyways, moving on

    Quite a few songs have come up here, that I have never heard. I didn't think that meant that they weren't overrated though, tbh, just because I wasn't familar with them.

    I had to resist making all my nominations Ed Sheeran songs. I will never understand his popularity. 🤔😉

    (And just as I was voting yesterday, Afterglow was playing on the radio. 😂)

    The Beatles - Get Back

    Meatloaf - Two out of three ain't bad

    The Beatles - Love Me Do

    Simply Red - Stars

    I am a fan of The Beatles, but since their entire back catalogue seems to have been nominated I'm having to vote for them a lot as I'm either a bigger fan of what they're against (U2) or just stuggling to see the other song as overrated (Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello) whereas its hard not to judge the biggest music act of all-time a bit more harshly even when you do like them.

    Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes - Senorita - this was way overplayed on the radio for such an average song

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Back Street Boys - Everybody ; tough call, could've gone either way, wouldn't call either overrated

    Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody ; it's great, a fantastic piece of music, but maybe because I studied for the auld Leaving Cert back in the day and needed to listen to it constantly, I just get a bit of Bohemian Rhapsody fatigue at times... like now

    Arcade Fire - No cars go ; actually think both songs are equally overrated, but as a band I've always found Arcade Fire incredibly overrated, so will give them the edge

    Don McClean - American Pie ; I like it, but it is overrated, and I don't feel Clint Eastwood is overrated (the song not the actor, the actor is definitely overrated)
