Ah yes, the only song on the planet that actually has a speech impediment incorporated into it. I think BTO was smoking too many fatties when they wrote that song.

Here's a rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" from William Shatner (click at your own risk). It's freaking hilarious. I love Captain Kirk

Re: 50 worst songs ever

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy (I've Got Love In My Tummy) - Ohio Express, not the Archies

But both "Sugar, Sugar" and Yummy, Yummy" get my vote, as do:

"Honey" - Bobby Goldsboro
"Mandy" - Barry Manilow
"Quinn the Eskimo" - Manfred Mann (written, incidentally, by Bob Dylan)
"Locomotion" - Grand Funk Railroad version
"Elvira" and everything else by the Oak Ridge Boys

You know, ever since a CD of his came out last year or this year, I've been thinking of buying it. His "singing" cracks me up!

Now you've done it! Bad country & western song titles:

"You Done Me Wrong, But at Least You Done Me!"
"If My Nose Was Running Money, Honey, I'd Blow It All on You"
"I Gave Her My Heart and a Diamond and She Clubbed Me With a Spade"
"Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreens and I Cried All the Way to Sears"
"If I'd a Knowed That You'd a Wanted to of Went With Me, I'd a Seed That You'd a Got to Get to Go"
"I Would Have Wrote You a Letter, But I Couldn't Spell Yuck"
"She Was Only a Stablekeeper's Daughter, But Every Horseman Knew Her"

OK, I made that last one up...

Re: 50 worst songs ever

My vote is definitly for the aforementioned "Muskrat Love".

And to trash an icononic group......I could never stand The Who's "Squeezebox". If they thought they were being clever they weren't.

My torpedomen used to listen to Def Leppard's "Pyromania" whenever they were getting ready for a weapons load. They claimed it improved their morale although it raised a few eyebrows.

But no problem, no regrets, send all those albums to me! My kid and I will have a little "This Year in Rock History" lesson next time she needs me to drive her somewhere... that's the price of parental transportation.

"Class" and "subtlety". Yep, those are the first two words that come to mind whenever I think of Pete Townshend.

Re: 50 worst songs ever

I was going to chime in for the missing "Macarena" but someone beat me to it but after listening to the first 12 seconds of William Shatner singing "Lucy in the Sky" (that's all I could stand) it doesn't even come close.

Although luckily it doesn't fit in the category of really bad songs that are also catchy and can't get out of your head. Those are the worst.

As for Midnight at the Oasis, I like that song! I'm not partial to bringing my camel to bed though, they're rather stinky...

Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight

(Chorus)

Ingonyama ilele [The lion sleeps]

Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling
The lion sleeps tonight
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling

Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight

(Chorus)

My little darling
Don't fear, my little darling
My little darling
Don't fear, my little darling

Ingonyama ilele [The lion sleeps]

This is gotta be Numero Uno!

Re: 50 worst songs ever

I never did understand that song and even now seeing the lyrics it's meaning still escapes me.

As for Midnight at the Oasis... I wish I had never mentioned it. Lovely tune except for having it in my head day and night now for over a week.

For those trying to cleanse their skulls, I'd recommend "Right Now" by Sammy Hagar & Van Halen.

My kid is heartily tired of seeing me head-bang to my own internal soundtrack...
