I seem to remember that after some of her more suggestive recordings (remember "Feel my Thigh"?) Ms. Muldaur became a Christian and decided that her earlier music was evil. So tried to get the label to stop releasing it. They informed her that she did not have the rights to it, rather that they did, and that they were obligated to continue paying her royalties for the evil stuff she had formerly spewed.

So she announced she would donate all the proceeds to charity.

I don't know if she's since recanted. But I did see a compilation of children's music by her in the public library.

I guess we should let sleeping camels lie.... :

Now we're talking! *Pump me full of enough psychotropics, place a glass of bourbon in one hand, a Camel in the other, prop me up in front of the karioke machine, and I'll serenade you all. *For hours if you'd like.

And what do you have against taking camels to bed?!

Personally, I draw the line at invertebrates.

Muskrat Love by Captain and Tennile. How about this one: Feelings, Whoooooa, Feelings...

My brain is teeming with these lovely gems from the 70's. Thanks to the OP for stirring up my OCD

That VH-1 list doesn't go very far back. *'Cuz if it did, it would need every song by The Archies.

Their songs followed the format "Vomit_Vomit" * (e.g., Sugar Sugar; Yummy Yummy). *I'm feeling ill already...

Re: 50 worst songs ever

So whatever happened to Morris Albert? Maybe he became a financial planner and tapped into some real dough hee hee.

I remember C & T performing Muskrat Love for some Royal Function, and the song insulted the Queen!

That's the Queen of England, not the other Queen

Re: 50 worst songs ever

Maybe Morris Albert got together with Leo Sayer (pic below).

How about the ultimate sleazy singles bar tune (think chest hair, gold chains and cheap cologne): Do ya think I'm sexy -- by Rod Stewart?

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so

What is a shame is that Rod Stewart could be a fine jazz singer.

Now Barry Manilow is another story. I write the Songs is on my top 10 list of bad songs. (After MacArthur Park, the song that I refuse to name, and Feelings).

Re: 50 worst songs ever

Does anyone remember the Margarena Dance from 10 years ago? I have scary memories of being in Cabo Wabo in Baja drunk on tequila doing the Margarena Dance.

Thank goodness this is an anonymous board...

Can't believe "Jerimiah Was A Bullfrog" isn't on the list (although he was a good friend of mine....)
