Great artists bad songs

Morning all, I think it’s fair to say that most decent artists and bands are capable of the odd stinker. Here’s a few I’ve thought of

Springsteen - dancing in the dark
Stevie Wonder- I just called to say I love you (ironically his biggest hit)
Billy Joel - Tell her about it (cheesy pop)
Elton John- kiss the bride
Muse - Uprising (sounds like a dr who remix)
Keane - crystal ball
Coldplay- that abomination with Beyoncé
Police- de do do do, de da da da (really Sting?)
Dire Straits - twisting by the pool
U2 - the sweetest thing

Feel free to agree/disagree and add your own, please don’t go slating bands, that’s not what this is about

Everything, absolutely everything I’ve heard by Bruce Springsteen is overacted.
Sure, he’s a great musician and lyrically is superb, but it’s all so meh...

Maybe that's why I like his more acoustic albums (Nebraska, The Ghost of Tom Joad). The songs on them are essentially modern folk songs, so he's playing a role as he's singing them.

Kate Bush
Bjork
Etc etc

Don’t get me wrong his ability to tell stories through lyrics are absolutely amazing. It’s just I find his music does nothing at all for me.

This can be shortened to anything he did after 2003.

Yeah it’s shiiiit. Sounds like every other mainstream r&b record from the noighties on.

What you want is to go back and listen to good stuff, like Pete roc’s production. Illmatic by Nas is a good start.

Nas just doesn't get my head bobbing if you get what I mean? Never been an Eminem fan too. But that Godzilla tune is crazy how he switches it up.

The Ringer is awesome. His beef with MGK is funny. MGK wrote a pretty decent diss track but Eminem’s Killshot was slightly better
