What can YOU say in six sentences?
Inspired by the metaphoric discussion Sandra kicked off with her post, I am inviting 6Sers to submit their lists of the worst songs of all time. You can't have any more than ten. I myself came up with two, and had to rush to kneel in front of the toilet. Remember--nothing but real puke-fest melodies will be accepted!
The Two Worst Songs Of All Time, From Whatever Angle--Moral, Political, Biological, Aestetic--You Want To Consider
1. You're Having My Baby by Paul Anka
1 (tie). Feelings by Morris Alpert
Okay, kids, your turn! Get busy!
Yes - thanks. Some information you want to bar from your mind ...
And then there's "Hey Paula (I Want To Marry You)" by the egregious Paul and Paula. Let's hope they didn't add to the gene pool.
With so many of these it's the slidey, dragging dreariness of the delivery as much as anything else.
Oh - my number 6 - Pat Boone - 'April love' (another one!)
I know I'm terribly late to this discussion, but when I saw "Worst Songs" this Paul and Paula song started playing in my head. I had to see if someone came to the same conclusion. If they added to the gene pool, I can only imagine something akin to a cross between "The Island of Dr. Moreau" and "Boys From Brazil": horrors beyond the language of natural morality.
I'm sleeping with the lights on tonight.
Ten worst songs !! Bah !! you haven’t heard me trying to sing the House of the Rising Sun. Think that screeching sound when nails scratch across a blackboard, couple that with a road drill that’s seen better days, add a pinch of train crash and a few screams in the night and you’re just about getting there.
Of course I’m not blaming the song for that.
My vote would be for: ‘How much is that doggy in the window ?’.
Yow! That's the first song I ever remember hearing in my life! The one by Patti Page, not Nine Inch Nails...
... AND the "laughing policeman"
but another one that sets my teeth well on edge (no.7) is "My Way"
Also "Leader of the Pack."
Come ON people! How can you look at this video and say it's not the worst drek EVER?
I am getting a rash just thinking about it.
I would agree about the Paul and Paula songs except that I slow danced with a really cute boy to them and he nibbled on my ear. I think context makes a big difference.
"Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton gives me the runs and the pediphilic (is that a word?) Young Girl by Gary Puckett & the Union Gap -totally incorrect.
"Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia
I'd rather sit on a belt sander.
