Thread Name: Worst Pop Song Part Two
Subject: RE: Worst Pop Song Part Two
Have you people no shame?! I have yet to see some of the worst excuses for using radio air time. The Beatles' songs mentioned above--expecially Ringo's songs---were far superior to Tony Orlando & Dawn's "Knock Three Times" (a 3 person singing group which did not comprise a "band" of instrumentalists-see thread re bands of 3). Then for that matter, where are all the "songs" of "The Carpenters" (aka "The Pukenters" in my corner of the world!)which were quite scary! The worst was "Close to You." Whuussupp wif dat? Then God bless The Captain & his lovely wife, Tenille, but when they recorded "Muskrat Love," what were they thinking?!! Then there were the Cowsills' & as for me, I hated that da*n flower girl because she did not make me "happy, happy, happy, happy!" Well, a-wing-a-wep, & shoobeedoobeedoobahday, I say! The 60's songs were bad enough, but when they turned into the songs of the 70's it must have been a really bad "LDS flashback", man!(LOL) Deep thoughts & deep meanings in those lyrics: "I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,. . .I will, I will I will, I will, I will, I will, . . .nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody. Well, I s'pose after those classics such as The Ballad of Jed Clampett, Green Acres, Theme for Gilligan's Island & Shaft, there was just nothing left to write! Nothing to do but turn to Bluegrass!
