5 Names I Like Less, Thanks to Music

I do my best to stay impartial about names. Sometimes, though, a bad song gets in the way.

When a perfectly good name gets trapped inside a bad song, I can’t help but start disliking the name along with the song.

Which songs have done the most to tarnish various names for me? The top five are:

  1. Come On Eileen (1982) by Dexy’s Midnight Runners
  2. Fact: This is the most annoying song in the history of mankind. Seriously. There was a world-wide vote. (Did you miss it?) Second place went to John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.

  3. My Sharona (1979) by The Knack
  4. The melody is so-so, but the lyrics are just sleazy…especially when you consider that the Sharona who inspired the tune was just 16 when it was written.

  5. Help Me Rhonda (1965) by The Beach Boys
  6. I like The Beach Boys, but this particular song gets on my nerves.

  7. Roxanne (1978) by The Police
  8. Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaawks-anne. Need I say more?

  9. Adia (1997) by Sarah McLachlan
  10. Back in the late ’90s, the U.S. passed something known as the McLachlan Law. The gist of it was this: Every radio station must play Adia by Sarah McLachlan at least 300 times an hour. (Sound impossible? It’s not. Trust me, I was there.)

These are my worst offenders, but there are a few dozen other songs I could have included. (Hey Mickey, you’re so fine…)

What about you — has a song ever negatively influenced your opinion of a name? What song was it, and why do you dislike it?
