    If I have to pick one song that I could not escape as a child during the 90s, it would be No Scrubs by TLC.

    And when I think of the early 2000s, Nelly's back-to-back hits Hot In Herre and Dilemma were un inescapable.

    Yeah alcohol works too

    In my case ... I really dislike AC music, it's not really the type of music that I listen to, but there's something about the style of MHWGO that it is really appealing to me and makes it be an exception of the genre in my book, like "I don't like this type of music but I can stand this" , you know, that's the effect that I get from MHWGO.

    and like I say, the only reason I don't stan for it is because I'm freaking sick of it but I know it's a good song and it definitely has universal appeal.

    IWALY is the cheesiest pop song of all time, I honestly can't imagine a situation where people would play it unironically.

    It's a classic nonetheless, but Whitney's other two classics (IWDWS and OMIT) are more socially acceptable.

    This is just awful IMO. I started to listen and wanted to turn it off after 10 seconds already, but I wanted to hear Beyonce making this something great, but after 1:25 I couldn't bear to listen any longer. Give me any dusty diva any time.

    The chocolate community only stans for Can't Let Go and Mine Again... We don't miss GOAT!

    You have this lyrically dramatic emo-goth charged like song with an AC production where somehow the singer is not oversinging the song. Celine performs the song rightfully and the high notes are never exaggerated while the melodies are haunting and even melancholic. When you think about it the song is technically extremely well executed and produced .... We just prolly hate it because we're just sick (tired) of it but objectively speaking it's a terrific song.
    Titanic came on the other night, OMG I forgot how much it sucked. The song was easily the best part about the movie.

    But the song clearly appealed to every demographic group, people who didn't even like that type of music would listen ... and I think I would LOVE that song if I weren't so sick of it.

    It was also one of the very few English-language beer tent classics back when festivals weren't banned yet.

    One thing about Celine is that I've met many people (males and females from different ages) and even some rockers that would consider "My Heart Will Go On" to be a good song. It's overplayed as hell yes, but she managed to snatch a song that sticked to every demography (even to the ones who don't like that type of music) basically universal appeal.
