Thread Name: What is the worst song you ever heard?
Subject: RE: What is the worst song you ever heard?
I don't mind lyrics being a bit silly; they're not supposed to be poetry, after all (at least not in popular songs). What really gets up my nose is inexcusably bad grammar, such as "The clouds roll by/For you and I": they might roll by for you. mate, but they certainly don't roll by for I!

Actually, I should take the wind out of my own sails by admitting that I sing "before that you'll marry I" in Blackwaterside, but that's a trad. song and doesn't count!
