Bad songs on otherwise great albums

Recommended Posts

The ghost of you lingers, the second song on ga ga ga ga ga by Spoon is the only song i don't like, it's a tad slow and doesn't really go anywhere.

“Thank You” on LZII.

This immediately came to mind. The only song I skip on what’s otherwise a masterpiece

respectfully disagree on "Thank You"...it's hard to say it doesn't fit on that album because that album is so scattered and eclectic.  But would in that vein, would like to add, "The Crunge" from "Houses of the Holy"

"I Just Want to See His Face" Exile on Main Street

Disagree.  That whole record is a beautiful train wreck where each car matters.

Zeppelin's genre venturing had some giant swing-and-misses:

Funk: The Crunge; Country: Hot Dog; 

But more often they hit the mark, e.g., basically all their folk stuff.

I think D'yer M'aker is a fine song, but it's not really true reggae. That's probably what saves it. Also, the opening drum fill was inspired by the one on this song, which I love:

I almost added to the original post Fitter Happier by Radiohead but is that a legit song and not some self indulgent break between the first and second half of Ok Computer?

That's where most people are on the subject, but I skip that one every single time.  I've warmed up to "Turd on the Run", but I almost included it in my original post.

"Money" - Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon. 

As a bass guitarist, i love that bass line and vehemently disagree with this, but to each their own i guess.

As the dad of a drummer, I respect your disagreement and will listen to the album for the . . . millionth time with the beauty of the baseline in mind. Thank you. Love that album.

"Anything Goes" on Appetite for Destruction.  I can't prove it, but it's like Los Lonely Boys went back in time and cut that shitty track for what is one of the 10 greatest hard rock albums of all time.

I am going to have to respectfully disagree.
