4 Artists Who Wrote Songs They Secretly Hate

It's one thing for a singer/songwriter to come up with a song that they love and then have to play it day in and day out on the road, but what happens when they write a song that they hate from the beginning.

Believe it or not, there are some famous singers who have written songs that they will forever be tied to and cringe every time they play or hear their song on the radio.

Here's a look at four iconic songs that the performers feel that way about. You may be surprised by at least three of them.

Do You Remember These Songs From The Eagles’ Solo Albums? [VIDEOS]

Over the weekend I ended up watching The Eagle's concert DVD, 'Farewell 1 Tour.' to be honest, I watched it then immediately started it over and watched it again. There's no denying the catalog of music they gave us from 1972 to 1980. They played all the hits, including a couple, at that time, new tracks from their 'Hell Freezes Over' and 'Long Road Out of Eden' albums. The four part harmonies never sounded sweeter.

The Songs Of Jim Steinman [VIDEOS]

Like my previous story about 'The Songs of Diane Warren,' Jim Steinman is another one of those major songwriters who you may not be familiar with, but have heard his music on the radio. Jim's big commercial break came when he began working with Meatloaf on the 'Bat Out Of Hell' project in 1977. Years later Meatloaf and Steinman would try and catch lighting in a bottle one more time with 'Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell,' but other than one major hit off the album, 'I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That),' it didn't come close to the 40 million copies of the 1977 album.

Rick’s ‘Lost Classics:’ Rick Pinette & Oak

‘Prancercise’ Lady Makes John Mayer Music Video a Million Times Better

Everything about John Mayer makes us so conflicted. His music is kind of lame, but he's actually a great guitarist. His music is kind of lame, but look at him without a shirt on. His music is kind of lame, but he has a great sense of humor.
