OK time for a new thread.

What's the worst song ever?

dg got us off to a good start here, although I like Magnet and Steel for some reason. I like ABBA too although I can't make that backward "B" on my keyboard.

Off the top of my head:

"Havin' my Baby" by Paul Anka
"Gimme dat Ding" by the Pipkins
"Swingtown" by Steve Miller

There's a whole sub-genre of songs where the girl dies:
"Honey" by Bobby Goldsboro
"Patches" by ???
"Last Kiss" (recently re-done horribly by Pearl Jam)

More to come.....

Actually I was thinking of this one

<font color="blue">DICKEY LEE
Pop-country singer. One of a number of pop singers from around the late 1950s-early1960s specializing in teenage death songs. Best known songs include "Patches" (1962), "I Saw Linda Yesterday" (1963), and "Laurie (Strange Things Happen)" (1965).

I think it would have to be "We Can Dance If We Want To" by Men Without Hats. But wait, there's more. It's a tie. Any song by the bands Omen, Celtic Frost, Death, and all the other death metal bands I hate. I also dislike all songs by King Diamond though I liked Mercyful Fate. I also think EVERY SONG EVER WRITTEN BY MICHEAL BOLTON IS TERRIBLE!!!!!!

"Feelings"

Yikes.

"Feeeeeeeelings....whoa whoa whoa feeeeeelings....

So many couples used that as their wedding song which totally cracks me up because there's a line in there that goes, "I wish I never met you girl."

Fran, a more popular wedding song is "Yesterday".
Although it is not a bad song, the lyrics are not what a couple should be dancing to at their wedding.

"Yesterday, all my troubles were so far away. Now they're here to stay." /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Or maybe they should???? /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You", whether performed by Whitney Houston or anyone else. I HATE that song. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Alternately any song that plants itself in my head right before I go to bed and won't let me sleep. Last night it was The Ohio Players and "Love Rollercoaster." That Rollercoaster kept running through my head for hours - "SAY WHAT?" /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Wally - "Last Kiss" was originally done by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers. I liked some of Melanies songs like "Lay Down" and "Candle in the Wind" but when she did "Brand New Key" I almost puked. I am and always shall be a Beatles fan but McCartney did a few stinkers like "Let'em In", "Silly Love Songs", "Ebony and Ivory", and that one with Michael Jackson. Listed below are more bad songs. Have fun getting these out of your head.

Clint Holmes - Playground in My Mind
Redbone - Come and Get Your Love
Redbone - Witch Queen of New Orleans
Dave Loggins - Please Come to Boston
Albert Hammond - I'm a Train
Burton Cummings - Stand Tall
Yoko Ono - Anything she ever recorded

Wally, how can ya dis Steve Miller band like that that? LOL. Electric Ave. by Eddie Grant is cool too.

That's a big problem with Kazaa and the other "sharing" sites. Once a song is mismarked it propigates throughout the internet and pretty soon everyone is "sure" that the wrong artist did the song.

Sorry to keep being a smartass but She Drives Me Crazy is by Fine Young Cannibals. I own that CD. That song Drove Me Crazy soon after I got it.

Sorry country fans, but any of those country songs just suck. Especially the songs sung by some whiney, pathetic male artist - usually whining over some girl (either how much he loves her, can't live without her, etc., or whining about how, now that she's left him, he can't go on, bla bla bla). Those songs make me want to puke.

I know a lot of people love them, but anything by The Doors pretty much sucks too.

Jimmy Mendoza

Well, Billy Ray Cyrus is in a "sucks" league of his own. He was marketed as some sort of sex symbol, and, as such, his songs all centered around a female ('Should have been me', 'Achy Breaky Heart', etc.). He wasn't as whiney as some of the others (how can you be a whiney bitch and still be a so-called "stud", you know what I'm saying?), but he DEFINITELY rates a 10 on the suck-o-meter!

Take Tim McGraw, for example. If he wasn't married to Faith Hill, I might think all his belly aching and whining about girls (Faith Hill?) in his songs was just a cover up for his deep seeded desire for some male butt love. What is funny is, the more pathetic and whiney the song is, the more that people who like country music like the song! I went to a wedding once where the songs the couple chose for the ceremony were all those damn whiney country songs. I'm not sure, but I may have grounds for a law suit for cruel and unusual punishment! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

P.S. If it sounds like I know too many country songs for someone who can't stand country, it is because I was captive in a relationship with a "country-girl" for a few years. I've since been liberated (kind of like an Iraqi)!

I like classic country but the new stuff (last 10-15 years) is horrid, except for Alan Jackson and some of Toby Keith's stuff..

They take a pretty boy, stick a big hat on him and call it country. It's all designed to appeal to females who make up the majority of the radio listeners.

Okay, here we go LOL. I will admit to very few of Zappa's songs being alright, but the majority....out the window they go. Not sure who mentioned his daughters name, but who on earth would name their kids like that? Moon Unit&lt;daughter&gt; Dweezil&lt;son&gt;? Although I have to say Dweezil Zappa is a helluva guitarist.

Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman.... Putting Rush in the worst song/music category is complete sacrilige. It's like calling Mosconi a ballbanger LOL.

Ole Frankie had to have been on one helluva acid trip when he named them kids.

I also agree with whomever made the statements about the rap artists sampling other songs to get there music. Among the most notables in this category:

1&gt;Tone Loc-"Wild Thang--is Van Halen's "Jamie's Crying"

2&gt;Vanilla Ice-"Ice Ice Baby"--is "Under Pressure" by Bowie
3&gt;That Puff Diddy or Daddy or whatever he is going by now
is such a major violater of this he has too many too
mention.

Although I am not a big fan of Zappa, I have to say that there is a lot of good music there, once you get past all the crap, like crude lyrics, political satire and sophomore humor. Some of the guitar work, mostly by Frank himself, is very good. Musicianship thoughout his band is at a very high level. He just throws so much other stuff into the music, it makes listening for the good stuff a lot of work. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

NOTE: Under no circumstances, should the Frank Zappa album titled "Jazz From Hell" (I think) be used as anything besides a shim between two immovable objects.
Do not buy it. Do not play it.

Yuck! Puff Daddy or P. Diddy, or Puff the Magic Dragon, whatever the hell name it is he goes by today, sampled Kashmir on one of his songs for that Godzilla movie that came out in '99 or '00. Actually, when I wrote that post, I had one of Jay Z's songs in mind where he samed Five to One by The Doors.

The worst song ever is "Black Chick, White Guy" by Kid Rock. Don't get me wrong, I like Kid Rock but this song is horrible.

The absolute worst recording I've ever heard is William Shatner's rendition of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds". /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Mrs. DG here... I agree with a lot of the losing songs here..I had to sell them!
Please help me out...I'm a Cyndi fan from the start but I never paid attention to the words enough I guess. How is She-Bop a masturbation song? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Movie/tv stars should not make records. David Soul, John Travolta, Kathie Lee Gifford and Leonard Nimoy to name a few. Shatner's album is good for a laugh if you're really drunk or stoned. Then it becomes a #1 best seller.

Timothy about canibalism? And what about a donkey? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif Please explain! <hr /></blockquote>Hello Mrs. DG,

Here's the lyrics to this great classic song:
<font color="blue">Timothy
The Buoys
(Rupert Holmes)

Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe and me and Tim
When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Were Joe and me

Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Hungry as hell no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you."

Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy
Timothy... </font color>


Most people think Timothy was another miner, hence the cannibalism reference. Some say Timothy was a donkey that helped the miners, and others say Timothy was the miners' parakeet. The inference, of course, is that "Joe" and "me" ate Timothy.

Great rockin' song - absolutely doesn't belong in this list of "worst songs". /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Hope that helps!

"Born To Be Wild" by Stephenwolf. The first time we ever talked I was heading down the highway.

Kato~~~Everything's tight from my loot to my friends
I ain't got time to tighten up loose ends
HUH I've been that route...too many times
If I ain't stabbed in the back I ain't fightin' no crime

Speaking of Rupert Holmes, anybody remember his hit The Pina Colada Song(Escape)? What a waste of vinyl!

OK, I been out on the road on two wheels the last few days. I come back to my absolute favorite subject, if I can add my two cents. First and formost ANY STEVE MILLER song sucks like a Hoover vacuum. The list will get longer as my brain hits the suck file....here it comes.

1}Country music should be banned due to its affect to a persons brain cells, simple put it kills them.

2}Music other than Hard Rock made from 1973 to present should be concidered tactics in torture...excluding Barry White, Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson.

3}"Jazz from Hell" was/is/will always be a classic...a must buy!!

4} Heavy Metal in a whole should be catagorized as another tactic of Torture...with few exceptions, very few

5} And finally...any music that KATO feels is "cool" is not cool at all due to his brainwaves being crushed listening to the Killer Dwarfs and Dream Theatre!!!

Here's the lyrics. I think it's pretty obvious:

We-hell-I see them every night in tight blue jeans--
In the pages of a blue boy magazine
Hey I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up--good vibration--
Oop--she bop--

Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar
Huh, yea, I wanna go south n get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop--or I'll go blind
Oop--she bop--she bop


She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop


(whistle along here)...


Hey, hey--they say I better get a chaperone
Because I can't stop messin' with the danger zone
No, I won't worry, and I won't fret--
Ain't no law against it yet--
Oop--she bop--she bop--


She bop--he bop--we bop...

Best masturbation song of all time: "Rosie", by Jackson Browne.

So you don't own the album Bikini Wax by the band Killer Pussy which features "Dildo Desire?" It is a must listen.




Worst song: Brown Eyed Girl.

I can't believe I'm reading this.!!!!!!!! Ladies and gentlemen, while Voodoo is one of my favorite people in the entire universe and knows absolutely every song ever written he does not know what he's missing out on by not jamming the Killer Dwarfs on a regular basis.

Kato~~~~Monster Killer Dwarfs fan

Who gave you that Dream Theatre CD?&lt;it sucked in my opinion&gt;. The Killer Dwarfs only sound good at low heights...under 5'9", HAHAHAHAAH. Actually, KATO has been asking some pretty good music questions as of late which my prove me wrong about his taste in tunes. Long live Yngwie Malmsteen!!!

Kato
04-29-2003, 06:45 AM
Dream Theatre is not for everyone, especially not the great Voodoo. It is for minds like mine that expand past 1970's hard rock /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I have been a Malmsteen fan since the 80's.

The Killer Dwarfs were cool. I just cant remember that one song that was their best known. The video received a lot of airplay on MTV. Tell me what it is Kato as my brain doesnt work so good as I am getting old and decrepit LOL.

Kato
04-29-2003, 08:11 AM
Ralph, I've been listening to the Dwarfs since the 80's sometimes. They had a ballad called "Lifetime" that could have had a video and a rockin' tune called "Dirty Weapons" that coulda had a minor hit. I never heard 'em on the radio, never saw 'em on T.V.

If anyone has D.A.D. "No Fuel Left For The Pilgrims" I'll pay for it. My cd is worn out, skipping badly.

Rico Suave by Gerado http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/contrib/sarge/Guillotine_anim.gif

That should effectively end the discussion.

Thank you for your time.

Kato~~~this song sucks so bad I'm laughing my A$$ off while I listen to it.

But Kato, that's the song that came to my mind when I was sitting at the airport waiting for Voodoo, Lorri, and yourself to come and pick me up. Remember? You stepped out of the truck with those ultra cool sunglasses, talking to a hot chick on the cell phone (oh wait, that was me on the phone /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif), and all I could think of was....

Rrrrrrico, Suaaaaaave
