Nah nahs in songs

Good or bad, that is the question?

 

I was listening to the song 'Fuckin Worthless' which is actually a pretty cool ballad by a bad called Negative, but is ruined by bloody 2 pointless minutes of nah nah at the end.

 

IMO it is just lazy song writing.

Good question. It can be good in some songs, although I can't think of any examples and look forward to others on here coming up with some. Sometimes it is really annoying though, e.g. Biloxi's 'Somewhere In The Night", an otherwise really good song.

It's not a good or bad thing without reason for me. For instance, the best "nah nah" song of all time is undoubtedly 'Straight to my heart' by Mitch Perry and that song is amazing. But I could see how it may have ruined other songs.

 

Or is this the best of all time (are 'Sha la la's the same as 'nah nah's?):

Either way, at the end of the day if the song is good it's good. If it's bad it's bad. I think there'd be few occasions where the 'nah nah's would be the deciding factor.

Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'. Need I say more. BTW has anyone ever tried to count the nah nah's in that song.

 

As I was typing out the question that did come into my head

I always hated the 'Nah nah nah's' in Bon Jovi's "Born to be My Baby".

I guess sometimes it fits in, but sometimes I would prefer a cool riff repeated over and over instead.

 

That's funny because I love the 'nah nah nah's' in that song! :D

But then again, I don't mind 'em in any particular song and 'Hey Jude' for example wouldn't be half as good as it is without that great outro imo...

I always thought "On To You" by Hurricane was a pretty catchy tune...

That was the first song that came to my mind when i saw the thread title. However, in my case, those "nah nah nah's" in that track always annoyed the f*ckin' piss outta me. :D
