GUEST, guest: I thought your jibes were great. I like funny stuff. I knew when I took the 'cat name 'brucie' that I would haer about it. I've laughed at every one of 'em. Thank you.

There is one more song that came out in the CB radio days. I wanted to dig a hole and pull it in after me every time it was played on the radio. The two lines I remember are

" . . . them bears was thick as trees" and the other was from what I think was meant to be a chorus: "We got ourselves a C O N v o y." If anyone would help me to forget those two lines, I will owe you lots. Friggin' words have stayed with me since 1976 or 1977. Too damn long, I can tell you that.

Brucie, thanks for taking my jibes in the intended spirit :-) But wait a minute! What's with the "Boots" thing?
Pete Betts, you brought back some horrible, horrible memories. I immediately heard that "Buddy Holly Tribute" tune in my head. It wasn't Jim Dale, it was Mike Berry (1963) - written by G. Goddard.
What a wonderful thing this world wide web is - within only two searches I turned up the immortal (if sparse) lyrics.

Wow-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yea-yea-yeaaah-yeah
Snow was snowing, wind was blowing
When the world said, goodbye Buddy
Still I know that up in heaven
Is where we'll hear him sing again

Wow-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yea-yeaaah
We'll always remember Buddy Holly

[Spoken]
Buddy Holly was killed in a plane crash, in 1959
But his songs will always be remembered, always

Wow-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yea-yeaaah
We'll always remember Buddy...

Snow was snowing, wind was blowing
When the world said, goodbye Buddy
Still I know that up in heaven
Is where we'll hear him sing again

Wow-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yea-yeaaah
Wow-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah, yeah-yea-yeaaah

Jeri,

In bluegrass, maybe. By the Village People: NO! NO! NO! Death, where is thy sting? The song never went away. Kids today in school dances are getting DJs to play the song. Then they do that thing with the arms. Took me years to figure out they are making the letters Y M C A in the air. I did not take enough medication in the '60s to understand the disco era.

". . . or spell it in Gaelic something like 'Bhraieoufhssphtaeiou'. (Except I think that' would be pronouced 'Arnold'." LMAOROTF

What we have here is an abundance of Bruces. Brucie, I think you meant Bruce Olson, who passed away last year. Of course, there are probably other Bruces. Someone could be Brusse or Brusce or Broose, or spell it in Gaelic something like 'Bhraieoufhssphtaeiou'. (Except I think that' would be pronouced 'Arnold'.

And I LIKE 'YMCA'. A former local group did a bluegrass version of it.

The Theme from the Titanic!

A favourite in China's karaoke parlours and anywhere with public singing. Sung without regards to key or ability to hit a right note.

Grandma sung by Clive Dunn.

When it came out back in the late 70's early 80's two crew members of a submarine I was serving on went into Helensburgh bought and paid for 10 copies and then jumped up and down on them much to the surprise of the staff of J Menzies!

No matter how many horrible songs are out there, I still can't move "After the Lovin'" from the number one spot on my list. Nothing makes me shudder like the opening line from that song.

I've seen Ode to Billy Joe mentioned numerous times on the worst song thread and I wonder what it is that makes people hate it. I think from a songwriting perspective, it's a pretty well-written song. No hook, too many verses and an interestingly told story. I like that.

How about Crimson and Clover? God!! What tripe!!!

And yeah, Jim Morrison wrote clumsy, barely collegiate level lyrics and SO many people think he was a profound genius. That's showbiz.

'Midnight at the Oasis' by Maria Muldaur (mule deer!)

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed...

With fifty girls to attend him, they all send him
Jump at his beck and call

I'll be your belly dancer, [romancer]
And you can be my sheik

And the bestiality line;

And you won't need no camel, oh no
When I take you for a ride

Heaven's holding a half moon {the song deserves a full moon, IYKWIM}

Oh why did I open this thread. Maria's shrieking voice reverberates throughout my head, bouncing around like the violent winds off the sand dunes.....

Mention of the god-awful Pina Colada Song reminds me of a song that makes me grind my teeth whenever I hear it: "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys.

Don't get me wrong: I love Brian Wilson and his brothers and cousin and friend, and the song marked their long-delayed comeback, BUT:

I'll never be able to accept the idea of "Kokomo" as a tropical paradise. Kokomo is a small city with a large military base on US 31 in Indiana, where I was once snowbound on a Greyhound bus -- in November! I know I'm not being the least bit objective about this, but I just can't listen to any song that extols the virtues of balmy Kokomo!

There is not enough bandwith here to list all of the offensive twaddle, syrupy pablum, and annoying bumf that is out there. "2525" is bad, "Seasons in the Sun" and "Shannon" (it's gonna hurt- she's drifting off to sea- WTF is that?) will cause spontaneous abortion in cattle. "Patches" is inexcusable, as are most of the 1960's & 70's AM radio staples. "Cherokee Nation" makes me want to kill myself.
There should be no place to hide for all of the composers, musicians, record company execs, record store clerks and their ilk who foist this crap off onto us. They will NOT take their fingers off of the "Feeling Button". Seek them out in ther fetid lairs and eliminate them.

For all you lovers of "The Unicorn" and rap, there's a CD you just gotta hear. It's called "We have a Dream" by an Ohio group named "Brigid's Cross". A great group of really talented and nice folks. Their sense of hunmor is best reflected at the end of the CD. There's a track not listed on the jacket or disk itself there, which I suspect was created after way too many pints or some other influence. Here it is guys & gals - it's probably the first and hopefully only rap version of Ol' Shel's Unicorn by the "Too White For You Rap Band". It's really a gas - about like a pizza fart, but hilarious as well.

Wow - what a great thread! And what a great list! I think I agree with every bad song listed - they were all my favorite stupidest songs of all time, it seems, at one time or another! Two thoughts to add though;

Someone listed a Neal Diamond classic, and I'd have to go further to add just about any Neal Diamond song would make my trash list, at least if Neal is singing it.

But my nominee for the world's all time worst pop tune is the Pina Colada Song - you know the one where the guy's tired of his girlfriend - puts an ad in the paper for a romantic opportunity - and it is responded to by his girlfriend? This classic bad song had absurd lyrics, a childish point, incredibly unimaginitve melody, a bad arrangement, and was sung by an extremely limited singer. Seems to me this stinker's a hand on winner!

"I've been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete..." "I've been undressed by kings & I've seen some things that a woman aint 'sposed to see, I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me..."

PL-EASE!!! Get a life!

Hello I'm back after a few months of Netlessness. If we could summarize what really gets under the most folks skin, it's: "just about everything that got heavy rotation on AM radio in the 70's, with strings". I see it as a hellish collision of lyricists stretching (past) the limits of their talents to accommodate the new freedoms and pretensions(Having My Baby, McArthur F*****g Park, certainly anything by N Diamond, and the aforementioned "Timothy, where on earth did you go? God why don't I know? (burp)"--all songs with highly unmemorable melodies, with these arrangers --for all I know, maybe it was just one guy--who got ahold of the songs and added these perky little hooks with flutes and strings and bang, you right away (a) hated the thing and (b) could NOT get it out of your cranium. They had bad melodies, worse lyrics but did they have HOOKS!

Fortunately, the whole top 40 thing sort of died , but unfortunately the bad 70's bubblegum music torch has been picked up by the so-called "new country" stations. A place where "that's my girl, my whole world but that ain't my truck" is one of the better entries. Almost anything sung by a man in this format seems to be a golly whiz paean to faithful devotion to his gosh darn best gal pal in the whole world under God and the Stars and Stripes. Makes me want to--oh, never mind.

Back about 10 postings Little Neo said something like 'how come I only like the song I wrote till I've finished it and then my satisfaction drops and I get disgusted with it?" Not sure I have an answer since I have much more fun singing other people's songs than creating my own, but I remember an artist *(painter) saying "no work of art is ever done, at best it is pulled out of the artist's clutching hands" and maybe she was trying to say Ialways think the NEXT one isgoing to be the masterpiece. Maybe what you are doing is really good-- it enables you to go on to the NEXT piece. Not that it's a comfort, but no artist can ever judge the quality of their own work. Sometimes one gets pleasantly surprised by other people's opinions. Don't give up!

Florence Foster Jenkins doing Queen of the Night belongs on a thread of recordings so bad they're funny, which is why it got (gets?) played on the Midnite Special a lot.

If you've missed her, she was a society lady with operqtic pretensions - had the dough to vanity record, and throw concerts for her friends to attend. the sad/funny part was, she had the notes in her range, just couldn't be bothered to actually learn the material. she could have afforded the best voice coach money could buy, but didn't.

Why should I waste my time listening to Pat Boone? Have you ever heard recordings of Florrie Foster Jenkins disembowelling the Queen of the Night aria from the Magic Flute. What was particularily cruel about the CD I heard was that they also played some other couple doing horrible, horrible things to Faust as well. That couple had only recorded themselves singing for their own pleasure, not to try and sell records for profit. 'Course they had given theor permission for the CD.... I've lost my Party Death tape that I used to have around. It had really bad songs from the seventies, ( the first one was 'I Like Dreaming', I've forgotten the rest) I used it once at a party that was invaded by beings from some other planet.

How about "Hello, I Love You, Won't You Tell Me Your Name?" by the Doors? Yuck!

More contemporary country songs, anyone? About 15 yrs. ago a song which had in its chorus :"Just a-swangin'..." "A Headache Tomorrow, Or A Heartache Tonight". And kudos to all who mention "Loving You"! God pity us, what a hideous song!!!! And "Tie Me Kangeroo Down, Sport"? No offense to our friends Down Under, but does anyone remember Pat Boone's version of that song? Or--God help us--his cover of "Tutti-Fruitti"? Not a great song in the first place, but to hear it sung in "bleach" is awful! Come to think of it, maybe we can add the Pat Boone discography in its entirety to the list!!

I don't know if PP&M recorded it, but the "other" Unicorn Song is by Margie Adam, and it's great.

When I was very small/ My best friend was a Unicorn;/ The others smiled at me and called me - crazy;/ But I was not upset/ By knowing I did not conform/ I always knew their thinking must be - hazy/

(Chorus) The unicorn and I would while away the hours/ dancing prancing and romancing in the wild flowers and we'd sing/ seeing is believing - in the things you see/ Loving is believing in the ones you love.

She was pianist and singer/songwriter around in the 70's; I have no idea what she's up to now.

Apparently, none of you have a pre-school aged child - because nobody said "THE BARNEY SONG" !

The song that still drives me insane is PAPER WOSES by Marie Osmond. I can't get her cute wittle withp out of my head....I hadn't thought of it for years.

Just about every country song after 1951.

Different kinds of Art produce different kinds of response. Never did figure out what was the worst art or the best. I know what I like, certain singer's voices give me the eebe jeebes but that is God's doing making my ears the way they are.

The worst song I ever heard was a little ditty composed by someone down here in Oz called "Mummy, do they have guitars in heaven?" It was intended to be the worse country song ever written, and in that it may have succeeded. I guess against competition like that, it really is a brilliant song!!!

I'd personally rather sit on a hot poker than listen to Sheryl Crowe's "Winding Road."
