10 on tuesday: 10 songs you hate

Hate is such a strong word. And there is really only one song I could use that word for.

1. John Lennon's "Imagine"

I hate "How Do I Live Without You," (Trisha Yearwood/LeAnne Rimes)

or "You're Nobody Until Somebody Loves You" (Dean Martin).

Both completely unhealthy.

Oooh! Controversial selection! I agree though, well mostly. I mean it is beautiful but it's so stupid that anyone would play a song that says, "Imagine there's no heaven" and consider it hopeful. The fact people use it at funerals is bizarre to me.

Misty I think I would personally consider both of those songs guilty pleasures. I don't hate em though.

This is a tough 10 On Tuesday. I'm going to have to think about it for a while.

I had a really hard time coming up with my list. That was the only song that I would say I "hate". I have real theological issues with it.

John sent me a list of *20* songs he hates. Twenty.

Misty, I see your point about them being unhealthy.

LOL...I'm not familiar with that one, but I agree...hate is a strong word....I prefer to think of it as a strong dislike...*grin* Thanks for commenting on mine!

Imagine on loop can be a little annoying, sure. And yes, ixnay on the funeralay.

I'm not a Beatles fan. I'm certainly not a John Lennon fan. But I don't hate "Imagine."

I think his point with the whole "imagine there's no heaven" is that so many people place all their hope in the life after next that they forget about this life and this earth and their fellow man. Then too, he could be emphasizing the fact that too many people see everyone as belonging to one of two divisions: bound for heaven or bound for hell. And that's a rather skewed perspective of the Bible and the way of Jesus. Life is about more than life after death, I guess.

That make sense?

I have more problems with Michael W Smith's "Above All" than I do with "Imagine."
