Thread Name: What is the worst song you ever heard?
Subject: RE: What is the worst song you ever heard?
well, I don't KNOW most of those you all mention...but of all the songs that many folkies MIGHT know that just grate on me....

"Circle of the Sun" by Sally Rogers...usually it takes several hearings for me to be sure a song doesn't suit me...but this one was neat for one verse, ok for 2, and by 3 & 4 I KNEW.....it is not the tune, which is only mildly mindless, but the lyrics, after a couple of verses, that just go nowhere with silly images and mundane metaphor...

(yes, I know...some love it..."de gustibus non disputandem")

there are songs which I can take if they are not done too often..("Waltzing with Bears", "A Place in the Choir"(all God's critters), "Lovely Agnes"...etc..
