Thread Name: What is the worst song you ever heard?
Subject: RE: What is the worst song you ever heard?
Lessee, what about "Timothy", the first Top-40 song about cannibalism? Or, for one that penetrates the skull and won't go away, "I'm Hooked on a Feeling" (Oo'-gah chaka, oo'-gah chaka). Anything by Abba ("Voulez-vous couchet avec moi, ce' sois?"; watch the wonderful movie "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" about three drag queens touring the Australian outback for some good reasons why...)

For nauseating, anti-feminist tripe, there's Gary Puckett's "Young Girl (Get Out of My Life), Paul Anka's "You're Having My Baby (What a Wonderful Way to Say I Love You)", "This Girl is a Woman Now" (another Gary Puckett?), "I've Been to Heaven (But I've Never Been to Me)" and the Bruce Springsteen ditty I always thought of as the "date-rape" song, "Fire" ("She's sayin' no, but I know she's a liar...")

There was a band that used to play the clubs around here called "Dred Zeppelin" who did reggae covers of Led Zep songs, fronted by an Elvis impersonator. Sorry (sort of) that I never got to see their act...
