Suzanne's Soundtrack Sunday

Last week, in honor of 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party, I featured a playlist of songs guaranteed to keep the party grooving.

This week, a list of awesome songs, with a twist. They're great songs that you DON'T want to play at a party because they'll kill the mood lickety split.

In no particular order, some party killers:
Wishing You Were Here-Chicago
Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word- Elton John
Alone Again, Naturally-Gilbert O'Sullivan
All By Myself-Eric Carmen
Bridge Over Troubled Waters-Simon and Garfunkel
Superstar-Carpenters
Elinor Rigby-Beatles
Without You-Harry Nillson
Brick-Ben Folds Five
If-Bread
That's The Way I Always Heard It Should Be-Carly Simon



And songs that will kill a party because they are awful:
I Will Always Love You-Whitney Houston
Seasons in the Sun-Terry Jacks
Nothings Gonna Change My Love For You-Glenn Medieros
I Miss You-Klymaxx
When A Man Loves a Woman-Michael Bolton
Always-Atlantic Starr
Havin' My Baby-Paul Anka

Obviously, I'm just scratching the surface here. What are some great songs that you think are party killers? Or are crappy songs and shouldn't be put into a party mix?

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" - UGH! And the stupid deejay played that at my WEDDING of all places! I should have realized right then and there that we were doomed.

See, now that one is SO bad that I tried to block it from my memory! Ms. Fellow Former DJ, I expect more contributions from you!
