bbbamI got the fruit one - Little Green Apples, though I would have picked the OC Smith top 40 version instead. But a Title is a Title

Here is the "something that bounces" song:


Though I really liked this song of theirs even better, and it could be ER-oriented in the right mindset:

No No NO No NO!

That song should be picked up with tongs by a person wearing a full HAZ-MAT suit, and dropped into a sealed container, put into one of those big stainless-steel nuclear waste casks, and transported under guard to a toxic waste incineration facility. And the smoke and ash pumped way underground on a planet in some other galaxy.

And then a big red X painted across that portion of the universe as a warning to all life forms for all eternity.

I looked up on wiki the dreaded BG, the singer of the most toxic song ever, and this is what they said:

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the song frequently appears on "worst songs of all-time" lists, and in April 2006, Todd Leopold of CNN named it the "Worst Song of All Time.

Of course, they were soft-pedalling it with those nice comments, not wanting to panic the masses or to make the Russians and Chinese think that we might be violating the Geneva Convention on weapons.

bbbamI, I was thinking more along the lines of a song by Sting...

Actually, I think he looks a lot better than he did back in '71 when I first saw him. Age wears better than heroin (or whatever he was doing back then).
