Annoying Music is like passing an accident. You don't want to look, but you sort of have to! -- Lorna Grisby/People Magazine
I've covered wars, disasters, and human tragedy beyond description. 'Annoying Music' falls into all three of those categories! -- Scott Simon/National Public Radio
Three minutes of annoying music seems like thirty. When it comes to horrible music, Jim Nayder is a purist! -- Janet Cawley/Biography Magazine

You can have your Paul McCartney singing "Wonderful Christmastime" and Andy Williams singing "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" in your grocery supermarkets, but that's minor league annoyance. This is the REAL stuff: the big leagues of annoying music which leaves one wondering, "What in the HELL were they thinking when the performers (I can't really call them "artists") recorded these songs?"
I'm a trained classical musician. There was no musical project I ever undertook which was harder than learning to sing "Do You Hear What I Hear" *exactly* as Johnny "Bowtie" Barstow sings it. Barstow does naturally what it takes us years to do -- all the harder for me because I have perfect pitch!
God bless Richard Nixon -- it took nine months, but I finally got it right. Christmas is saved!
I love music.
In my lifetime I have literally listened to more than 66,000 hours of records, CDs, 8-Tracks, mp3's and live venues. Some music of course--better than others--and a very few albums that I treasure and wish to have buried along side me. "The Annoying Music Show Holiday CD!" is such a CD. All of us have a moment of clarity in our lives, a millie-second of bright light & universal understanding of human & animals alike. My moment came during track #17, with the beautifully voiced child attempting to sing "Where Would We Be Without String?"
Such a simple yet profound title & song!
It gave me pause. Pause to ponder and pause to find my most recent medications.
Who is this Jim Nayder that finds such unique music and archives it for all ages & germinations to experience? Is he man, woman, beast, anti-Christ, Glenda-The Good Witch or perhaps a Donald Rumsfeld, taking full responsibility and yet suffering no consequences?
Or is Jim Nayder a simple human like all of us, yet able to distinguish that which is pure music solace, much like a Bat's inner radar could duck it under a boomerang?
Since purchasing this annoying CD, I have been happier, kinder
to strangers & loved ones and able to cry violently at the drop
of a safety pin. No other musical vehicle has affected me or even effected me, to this level of emotion.
Had I not listened to this CD, my life would have been much less a life, more perhaps a walk in the Black Forest at night during a lunar eclipse.
Now, as tears fill my eyes, I urge you in the strongest of terms,to get this CD, and LISTEN to its mysterious musical
lessons ASAP! Your so-called life will immediately be transformed into a light so bright, even God Almighty will need
I do understand that this music is SUPPOSED to be annoying, and it definitely is, but that still does not make the CD good. Do not attempt to listen to the entire disc in one sitting, or maybe just save your money and take the small doses of annoying music given out for free on the radio once a week.
