Default Singers and musicians who hate their own songs? :/

Grace Slick hates We Built This City On Rock And Roll admitting it's pop trash and she only did it for money. She also doesn't like Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now. She said something like,"I was singing about everlasting love when I know how quickly love can end. It felt hypocritical."

A Flock Of Seagulls singer admitted he is sick of I Ran So Far Away. He said something like,"I Ran So Far Away is actually my least favorite song on our album, it's so overplayed and overrated and fans want us to keep playing it. The Fans can keep it, I don't want it."

Mariah Carey says she doesn't like I Don't Wanna Cry and Someday.

Jewel says she thinks she sounds like Kermit The Frog on Who Will Save Your Soul, LMAO!

A lot of artists get sick of their own songs. Think about it, when you go on tour and play some songs a zillion times you're bound to get sick of them.

I was also thinking about that aspect of it. I can definitely see how that would dampen the enthusiasm for certain songs in the repertoire of an artist or band.

Also, being older and tiring of or feeling embarrassed about a song you wrote when you were younger. I'll bet every artist or band comprised of members over a certain age, has a few of those in their back catalogue that they never play and/or wish they'd never written.

I remember Guns N'Roses Fans saying something like,"Guns N'Roses wrote Welcome To The Jungle when they were young adults in their 20's and are STILL playing Welcome To The Jungle in their late 50's and Axl is 61! Ouch! That must be the seventh circle of HELL having to play Welcome To The Jungle for 35 years! :/

Late 60s one hit wonders The Lemon Pipers hated their bit hit "Green Tambourine", but their record company said "record this song or we'll drop you from the label." So they recorded the song.

Grace Slick hates "We Built This City" for being pop trash. A Flock of Seagulls' singer is sick of "I Ran." Mariah Carey dislikes "I Don't Wanna Cry" and "Someday." Jewel jokes about her voice on "Who Will Save Your Soul."
