Yeah, but I don't think the Iraquis liked it very much...

As for Tony Orlando, I think it was just his reputation that died a tragic death.

FFEEEEEEELLLLLINGGGGS is definitely the worst, stupidest, most excessively tasteless, godawful song of all time. Little Hawk has spoken.

Too bad about "Havin' My Baby", Paul. But you were close.

Well knucklehead, with the Iraqi idiot Saddam over there, who knew what he was going to do? And who would not come back alive? Maybe none of this touched you in your little anti-war hippie haybale folkie worlds. You all were probably too busy singing your goofy little songs and protesting the US's involvement in the Middle East to even notice or care. Ask anyone who has or had friends or family in the Gulf War, and they'll tell you that the Yellow Ribbon Campaign and the song were an integral part of keeping up the morale on the homefront when loved ones were in harm's way.

Mbo, unless you're joking, which I seriously doubt, lighten the fuck up. If someone says they don't enjoy Tony Orlando, it's not a personal insult directed at you. Any time someone insults the pop tripe you apparently cherish, you throw a tantrum and call names. I've never seen anyone, me included, insult you for having 'bad' taste. Playful teasing, perhaps, but it's definately been in a friendly manner. You can tell when >I'm< joking, for instance, by my annoying use of emoticons. But even when someone's joking, you don't seem to care; you immediately compose something like: "Listen, bonehead, Debbie Gibson rocks! She came to town once and said we had well paved roads! None of your damned folk hippie losers ever did that! It made our millennium here in town!"

And so I'm not a slavish follower of the military, and don't take part in nationalistic displays. This makes me a 'knucklehead?'

Why not think twice before reacting like a spaz next time? And I mean that in a nice way. You really do seem to be a good guy, but your little outbursts are REALLY getting on my nerves.

Now, people...let's just settle down here...

Mbo - I thoroughly appreciate your disdain for Saddam Hussein. And I can understand your natural concern for veterans, friends and loved ones. No argument there.

I do think there were some aspects to the Gulf War that the West should not be too proud of...some of those having repercussions on American veterans as well as Middle Easterners. The Iraqui government is a vicious dictatorship, but the Iraqui people are about as good as people anywhere else, and many of them were victims of the war.

Now I am going to go and relax by listening to Space Oddity in surround sound.

Lepus - you are always a pleasure to read. How's things in the briar patch?

Oddly enough, Tony Orlando was on the "Today" show this morning. He now looks like the "Frito Bandito" who has not only stolen the chips, but eaten several truckloads as well. Even more entertaining is that he was on with Debbie Gibson who had her road paving equipment with her.

I'm back!!! Seems to me that tie a yellow ribbon is a pretty minor thing to rant on but hey wars are started over less. I personally don't like tie a yellow ribbon all that much but I'll defend Mbo's right to (Might not understatnd it but i'll defend it; I was in Saudi Arabia also). I'm not nominating it yet but can anyone tell me what the hell inagodadavida means? Running Bear was done by Johnny Preston by the way. More of the pick of the litter box: PLease Mr. Custer Me and Mrs. Jones- Billy Paul Stupid Cupid- I like Connie Stevens but that one pushes my buttons. Iron Man- "I Am Iron MAn.." This thread would be even more fun if we were talking about the ultimate in bad movies. Hmmm..... Kindest reguards, Neil

Hey, good thought Neil! Maybe we should start a Worst Movies Of All Time Thread, indeed. I'd like to, but I'm worried about my reputation here...it's almost as bad as Spaw's by now...if y' can believe that!

How about "Young Girl"...that one had to be one of the most tasteless and unlikely hits of all time. Who did it? Anyone know?

Legend has it that In a Gadda Da Vida was originally titled In The Garden of Eden, but when the band member who wrote it presented it to the band he was so wrecked that they thought he was saying In A Gadda Da Vida.

Now I hope you're not nominating this a worst pop song. I admit it has its faults, but it was a groundbreaking song that certainly influenced many of the heavier bands that followed.

"A Young Girl/a young girl of sixteen/child of springtime still green/lying here by the road.........DEAD". Done by Noel Harrison, sexy Rexy's son. I, for some reason, know all the words. True, though: a real stinker of a song. The Free Bird of its time, I suppose, minus either heartbreaking or worldrocking. Unless you're talking about "Younger Girl", a Lovin'Spoonful song covered by the Critters,and not bad.

I think he means "Young Girl" by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap.

Young girl, get out of my heart
My love for you is way out of line

Truely a contender.

dammit, guinnesschik, you're trashing all my favorite songs! I hope you'll have the decency to consider my feelings, and refrain from any more of this.

Just so you know, I dearly love "Baby, Baby, Don't Get Hooked On Me" -- when Mac sings "You're a hot-blooded woman-child, and it's warm where you're touching me", I just go all gooey. And before you trash "Cherish", remember -- it has the right amount of letters, and just the right sound!

well, that's enough for now, I really just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

(and Billy, please...Don't Be A Hero)
