Only if I think my 12-year-old is watching. It's even better if she's accompanied by the neighbor's kids. It's a relatively recent phenomenon-- I wouldn't have been caught dead doing this in uniform, but now I have an ER image to maintain.

And how many of you have played Jimi Hendrix's "Star Spangled Banner" for your kids? Or shown them the Flying Townshend? C'mon, we have a responsibility to pass this culture on to future generations!!

A few months after ER I was waiting at a stop light and helping John Bonham get through "Stairway to Heaven". Right in the middle of a particularly difficult riff (on my steering wheel) I looked around and made eye contact with the driver of the adjacent car-- my mother-in-law.

It's not a question of when I'm going to grow up... more like "if". The upside is that it's not hard to live up to my standards.

Re: 50 worst songs ever

"Stairway to Heaven" is my all time favorite. DH and I used to go to so many concerts back in the day, pre-kids. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, CSNY, Jethro Tull......oh the memories! I am starting to feel young again!

Re: 50 worst songs ever

Dreamer, you just reminded me that it's OK to admit we are products of the 60's "ish" times.

If I could collect a nickel for every time I listened to Locomotive Breath, I could retire.

Ahhh, Tull, Zappa, Deep Purple, Hendrix, Joplin, Little Feat, .......

Re: 50 worst songs ever

Outtahere,
me and a (still) pal "J-Mac" used to sneak out at night in Westchester (Los Ang) to play at the underground jazz clubs in VB.

If you can get a mp3 copy of "Stanley Clarke and Mr. Billy Cobham" Live at the Greek, listen to the bass riff at about 3 minutes in. Best ever. Not even close.

I can do that, well, I think I can, maybe, it's close, and if nobody is lookin..... or listening. I was a contender. Yes, I was.

Re: 50 worst songs ever

"Maneater" Hall & Oates. The quintessential annoying 80's duo.

"Afternoon Delight" - Starland Vocal Band. Beyond cheesy. Think I saw an old video of them performing....which made it worse, visualizing those two getting it on.

"99 Luftballoons" - Artist? Some euro chick/band.

Would that be "Stanley Clarke and Friends"??

Re: 50 worst songs ever

How many guitarists does it take to play a solo?

Five; one to play it, and four to stand around saying "I could do that..."

:P

Re: 50 worst songs ever

I was telling my DH about this thread, and some of your suggestions for the worst song ever. We laughed! I think he came up with the winner, though. Remember the song, "Having My Baby" (what a lovely way of sayin' how much you love me...) I don't remember who sang it, but yuck!!

Re: 50 worst songs ever

I forgot about that sappy pregnancy song :P I bet she (I think he wrote this for his wife) wasn't singing "I'm a woman in love and I love what it's doin' to me" when she was dilated to 9. I know I was cussing out my husband and slapping him hard in the face with a wet face cloth.

Here are the lyrics for those who truly love torture.:


(You're) Having My Baby"

(As recorded by Paul Anka)
PAUL ANKA

Having my baby
What a lovely way of saying how much you love me
Having my baby
What a lovely way of saying what you're thinkin' of me
I can see it, your face is glowing
I can see it in your eyes
I'm happy in knowin'
That you're having my baby

You're the woman I love
And I love what it's doin' to you
Having my baby
You're a woman in love
And I love what's goin' thru you
The need inside you
I see it showin'
Oh, the seed inside you baby
Do you feel it growin'
Are you happy knowin'
That you're having my baby

Girl: ("I'm a woman in love and I love what it's doin' to me")
Having my baby
Girl: ("I'm a woman in love and I love what's goin' thru me")
Didn't have to keep it
Couldn't put you thru it
You could have swept it from your life
But you wouldn't do it
No you wouldn't do it
And you're having my baby
Girl: ("I'm a woman in love and I love what it's doin' to me")
Having my baby
Girl: ("I'm a woman in love and I love what's goin' thru me")
Having my baby
