Thread Name: More Worst pop songs ever!
Subject: RE: More Worst pop songs ever!
"Running Bear oo aah oo aah oo aah oo aah
Loved little White Dove oo aah oo aah..."

Come on,leeneia! Be leenient!That was my favorite song when I was eight."Now they'll always be together in that Happy Hunting Ground".Come on!This is great stuff! Any song with a guy going "oo aah" through the whole thing PLUS a screaming jazz saxophone on the chorus has plunged through the bottom of the "bad" category right into greatness! Ranks right in there with "Please Mister Custer...I don't wanna go".

How about "They're Coming to Take Me Away (Ha Ha)"? Or "Let it all Hang Out"...

"It's rainin' inside a big brown moon
How's that mess ya Baby up leg
Eatin' a reuben sandwich with sauer kraut
Sure ain't no doubt
Keep a open mind
Let it all hang out." Where the hell's Doctor Demento when we need him? Sometimes it's a real fine line between Art and Horseshit.
