Sorry about that, I'm used to my Sailing Forum where you have to click the button to compose your message.

The worst I ever heard? Don't know the name, but some lyrics: "I love little baby ducks, walking barefoot in the mud, trucks...and IIIIIIII loooooooove yuuuuuuuu!"

(the only words I can swear to are the little baby ducks...the rest is not far from the jist of the tune)

Memphis Mud - That's a Tom T. Hall song and, yes, it does suck canal water, particularly considering that the guy wrote some excellent songs ("Old Dogs, Children & Watermelon Wine" "The Year That Clayton Delaney Died").

My nomination: A tie between "Achey, Breaky Heart" and "Bubba Shot the Jukebox".

"Grandad ..." A dreadful song certainly. And it seems so unlikely that one of the writers was Herbie Flowers who played the bass-line (double tracking on electric bass and double bass) for Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side". You can be associated with both the coolest and the geekiest.

Wayne Newton sang "Daddy...."

Hi Bobert, I have to agree with you about "Honey". But of course to millions that song meant a huge amount. They cried, they laughed......they made Bobby Goldsboro rich. Guess we're just a tad too cynical to get it's poigniant beauty!

Considering that when I used to sing in bars I DID actually do Feelings, Tie a Yellow Ribbon, and Gawd Didn't Make Little Green Apples......it's a miracle I DIDN'T sing Honey!

On the other hand......the absolute worst (by an artist who should have known better)

Bobby Goldsboro had sappy down pat. Watching Scotty Grow was equally saccharine. But then, he did record Little Things, which Bob Dylan did a little bit of on piano in a documentary many years ago.

Getting back to the trad sphere: I think Romanoff wrote the execrable "Hats off to old folks" but it still is in a dead heat with "Rambling Rover" (the one which contains the word 'colitis'. Can anyone break the tie?

And I'll buy that TTH's "I love you too" is a horrible closing line but I don't think the song rises to horrible, because there are good evocative lines in it, and sheer poetry in that part about 'Sunday school in May, and onions."

The song about the cake in Bobert's post was, of course, "MacArthur Park," sung by Richard Harris in its first hit version:

Someone Left the Cake out in the Rain... ...I don't think that I can TAKE it 'cause it took so long to BAKE it and I'll never have that recipe again. Oh, Nooooooooooo!

After Dave Barry's readers picked this as one of the worst ever, some irate fan wrote in and explained that the cake was a METAPHOR. To which DB replied that that was true but it's what we writers call a "really, really stupid metaphor!"

Jerry, I think in the documentary Don't Look Back it was actually whatshisname, the Animals keyboard guy who sang Little Things, maybe Dylan on piano? I remember that guy doing a "human sloth" slow-motion imitation with it.

Worst song ever written is a number of "young girl get out of my mind, my love for you is waay out of line" songs by a variety of people. Sting did one. Another goes "if I could fly, I'd lift you up, and take you into the night" etc, which transcends the genre by also being a "I can fly" song.

One of Bob Seeger's songs about strippers gets honorable mention for the lines They love to watch her strut they do respect her ( ,?) but they love to watch her strut

Have to agree with Honey. Back in the 60's the Smothers Bros. did a wonderful parody of the song on their TV show, sentimentally walking thru a schmatzy "set" with TV camera while singing the song. Along the same lines, Ruby, Don't Take Yer Love to Town, old whatsisname's raspy voice and all, is a close second. And in a sessions type group I always cringe when someone suggests Blowin' in the Wind.

I have a funny story about this. My father was an attorney in a very small town. One of the guys in town hired him to copyright a couple of songs the man had written. He took his songs to Nashville and paid to have some professionals record them for him. He then pressed singles (okay it was the late 50's or early 60's) and tried to sell them. However, they were the worst songs you have ever heard. The A side was "That Pill Pushin' Nurse." I (thankfully) forget the B side, but I suppose my mother still has it in the basement. These songs were bad. The lines didn't scan and nothing rhymed.

Subject: Lyr Add: SEASONS IN THE SUN (Brel, McKuen)
From: JJ
Date: 11 Sep 02 - 12:11 AM

You are speaking of Rod McKuen's "Seasons in the Sun," his adaptation of a Jacques Brel song. (I think it was better in French.) As sung by the Canadian Terry Jacks, it sold 11.5 million copies.

And where did Terry Jacks get the song? From the Kingston Trio!

Adieu, Emile, my trusted friend,
We've known each other since we were nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills and trees,
Learned of love and A B Cs,
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Adieu, Emile, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky. Now
That the spring is in the air
Pretty girls are ev'rywhere.
Think of me and I'll be there.

CHORUS: We had joy. We had sun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills we would climb
Were just seasons out of time.

Adieu, Papa, please pray for me.
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
Wonder how we got along.
Adieu, Papa, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky.
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children ev'rywhere.
When you see them, I'll be there.

Chorus

Adieu, Francoise, my trusted wife,
Without you, I'd have had a lonely life.
You cheated lots of times but then,
I forgave you in the end
Though your lover was my friend.
Adieu, Francoise, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky.
Now that spring is in the air
With your lovers ev'rywhere;
Just be careful, I'll be there.

All our lives we had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills we would climb
Were just season out of time.

Adieu, Emile. Adieu, Papa. Adieu, Francoise.

All our lives, we had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time.
All our lives, we had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach.

Two from fairly recent popular culture, a truely toe curling one that was around about 2 years ago something about "picking up the phone" which had an intensly irritating background of a ring-tone as part of what I hesitatingly call the "music " element of the soundtrack, also there was another one around at about the same time that appeared to include a scream of rage from a "female" (although it sounded far more animal in origin) who is complaining in the song about being badly treated by her (now) ex-lover.

Hey Baby I'm Your Telephone Man

Brand New Key

I'm going to disagree on contemporary music. I felt the same way until I heard David Gray, Sheryl Crow, and Train. If you take some time to shovel away the shit, you'll find a pony in there somewhere.

A whole spate of "doo-wop" songs in the Fifties, in which the singer breaks out of the song to narrate a real tear-jerker, explaining what the song is all about. A particularly egregious one that spent a lot of time on the charts was Teen Angel. I friend of mine was moved to write a parody entitled Teen Leper. Part of the narration says, "My mom and dad didn't want me to go with her because she had leprosy. So I said, 'well, gee whiz, mom and dad! All teenagers have complexion problems. . . .'"
