More Worst pop songs ever!

From: Little Hawk

This is part 2. The other one's just too long now.

How about that old blues song...I'M A MAN! M-A-N! MAN!!!!

How about that other piece of &^!!%$&$..."I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help that I love you!" (that's the chorus). These guys in a rock band next door to me once rehearsed it for 5 or 6 hours and nearly drove me mad. Who did that one, anyway? I know it used to be on the radio a lot.

Well, let's get this off on the right foot....That's the one that stomps down and smashes the livin' crap out of the "Space Oddity/Major Tom,Psychotic Astronaut" thingy and then dances lightly over to smash "Honey" that Bobby Goldsboro masterpieceofcrap.

Have a nice day Hawk.

"I wish they all could be california girls..." - Beach Boys.
That song's rather close to being misleading advertising, dontcha think?

"I'm A Man" - Okay, guys, you've got me puzzled on this one. I don't know if it's the Chicago or the Spencer Davis version that I hate. Ah...what the heck, I would probably hate both of them.

Don't you DARE insult the song "Xanadu"! Yeah, the movie stank like a landfill, but that song was written and performed by my beloved ELO, ONJ just sang lead. I wish Jeff would have sung lead on it. His voice would have sounded so much better, and people would remember it as an ELO tune, not as "something Olivian Newton-John sang".

More from your favorite 19th century musical psychotic; most heavy metal, Hip-hop and now to specifics. Seasons in the Sun-Terry Jacks. People- Barbara Streisand. The new rap version of Gordon Lightfoot's Sundown (What the hell kind of drugs was Gordo on when he let them do that?!) Feelings. (You know that all time touchy-feely song that always gets dragged out at weddings.) Achy Breaky Heart- Billy Ray Cyrus. I've got a Nickle- One of those cutsie songs popular in the 1970's. Hunk a hunk a Burning Love- Elvis (Should have stayed away from those deep fried penut butter sandwiches, Bubba.) Loving You- Minnie Ripperton (Voice like fingernails on a slate black board.) I'm sure as this thread progresses I'll think of more. Have a great day all, Kindest reguards, Neil

"Running Bear" and "The Gambler" could fight it out for the title of Pop Song Most Nearly Sung on One Note.

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

Keep a open mind

Mbo, unless you're joking, which I seriously doubt, lighten the fuck up. If someone says they don't enjoy Tony Orlando, it's not a personal insult directed at you. Any time someone insults the pop tripe you apparently cherish, you throw a tantrum and call names. I've never seen anyone, me included, insult you for having 'bad' taste. Playful teasing, perhaps, but it's definately been in a friendly manner. You can tell when >I'm< joking, for instance, by my annoying use of emoticons. But even when someone's joking, you don't seem to care; you immediately compose something like: "Listen, bonehead, Debbie Gibson rocks! She came to town once and said we had well paved roads! None of your damned folk hippie losers ever did that! It made our millennium here in town!"

And so I'm not a slavish follower of the military, and don't take part in nationalistic displays. This makes me a 'knucklehead?'

Why not think twice before reacting like a spaz next time? And I mean that in a nice way. You really do seem to be a good guy, but your little outbursts are REALLY getting on my nerves.

Now, people...let's just settle down here...

Mbo - I thoroughly appreciate your disdain for Saddam Hussein. And I can understand your natural concern for veterans, friends and loved ones. No argument there.

I do think there were some aspects to the Gulf War that the West should not be too proud of...some of those having repercussions on American veterans as well as Middle Easterners. The Iraqui government is a vicious dictatorship, but the Iraqui people are about as good as people anywhere else, and many of them were victims of the war.

Now I am going to go and relax by listening to Space Oddity in surround sound.
