Thread Name: worst songs from musicals
Subject: worst songs from musicals
Well, now that we've gone over our faves, what about the WORST songs from musicals? Yup, there've been plenty...

for example there is the silly and mealy-mouthed category -

from "110 in the Shade" (and how a duo who did the "Fantastiks" & "Celebration" could come up with this clunker still amazes me) -
"fix a basket of food for the hungry men
find a place in the shade for the hungry men
from "Carousel" -
"when you walk through a storm, keep your head up high
and don't be afraid of the dark
at the end of the storm is a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark"

or the simply horrid -

from "Carousel" -
"it was a real nice clambake
we're mighty glad we came
th' vittles we et were good, you bet
the company was the same"

oy, what dreck!

OK - let's see some more awful lyrics! What are your personal most-hated songs? ;-)
