There's only one song I skip everytime it comes on the ipod. That's Pre You. I just don't like that song at all. I'm sure I'll catch some flack for that.

There's really no Buffett song I can't stand to listen to, but I have some least favorites. I recently uploaded every Buffett song on my iPhone and put them in order of my favs, these were the bottom 10.

1. Elvis Imitators
2. God's Own Drunk
3. Whoop De Doo
4. My Head Hurts, Feet Stink...
5. Playing The Loser Again
6. Turn Up The Heat, Chill The Rose'
7. Strange Bird
8. Baby's Gone Shoppin'
9. My Barracuda
10. Conky Talkin

I know everyone hates Math Suks, but I kinda like it.

I also only considered songs on or after White Sportcoat. I refuse to acknowledge Jimmy's first two albums.

Desdemona's Building a Rocketship

Math Sux
Remittance Man
USS Zydecoldsmobile
Sunny Afternoon
Conky Tonkin
Fool Button
Chill the Rose
Frank and Lola
What's wrong with Conky Tonkin'? I really enjoyed when he played it during the 2009 Summerzcool Tour.

Sunny Afternoon is a great song too, and Buffett's cover of it was decent....don't see how anyone could dislike that either

Agree on Fool Button and Math Suks being two of the worst for sure, but the rest you list aren't that bad in my opinion.

I'm not really crazy about Hey Good Looking either...

:o I almost swallowed my tongue when I saw someone put Survive on their hate list. :o
:(

I like Don't Bug Me . . . I think I even have it on a playlist . . . :-?
I don't think the movie soundtrack songs are on the radar for most fans.

I agree with all of these - except "Head Hurts" - it's just catchy to me. :)

Gods Own Drunk, My head hurts, Conky Tonkin, and Babys Gone Shopping are great songs IMO

WDWGD, Math Suks, Too Drunk to Karaoke and Cussin' Island are a clear top four worst for me. Have to disagree about Useless and Important Information though- it's one of the few songs on St. Somewhere that I actually like! A Lot To Drink About isn't that bad either- wouldn't say it's one of the ten worst.

Another one I can't stand for some reason: It's My Job.

Agreed- I sure hope he doesn't actually play Cussin' Island live when concerts resume! When he played Too Drunk to Karaoke live in 2013, that was terrible.
