I really hate all of them: Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton (except his Cream - time), Van Morrison, Joe Cocker and at last the Eagles and Steely Dan !

I quickly came to loathe the contents of the CofE hymn book that dominated school assemblies in the 60s and 70s. A few bars of any of the regulars will have my hackles rising. National anthems fulfil a similar function and suffer from the same degree of empty pomp and mawkishness.

Hate is a strong word for pop musicians and their output but any music that celebrates oafishness and ignorance should be handled with suspicion!

Lord Of The Dance still kicks arse though. Was the only one my school used to really get their teeth into. Usually it was only the few remaining teachers who had been in the war that you could hear singing.

Ha! I will have to block my ears for that one too I am afraid. Especially as Lord of the Dance boasts the triple distinction (if that is indeed the word) of invoking not only the supporters of Chelsea FC and the dubious merits of Michael Flatley but also the BBC's Music and Movement radio show. On the upside at least the idea of making primary school children dance around in their vests and pants for the amusement of adults is unlikely to be making a comeback any time soon.
