Worst Song of All Time? ~ Part 4

(Sorry, but that's one scary picture!)

Okay, my turn.

I'm not saying this is the absolute worst song of all time, but it embodies everything that I hate about music that punches you in the stomach, and just keeps punching.

I feel no need for singers to shout at me.  That just makes me crabby.  If you've got something to say, just say it....rationally.  I will get it.  Really.  Yelling at me is just going to make me hate you.

It's not that I hate Billy Joel.  I like "Uptown Girl", in which he sings.  I understand that Billy is in love with his lyrics, and there's really nothing wrong with that, but, Billy, just give your listeners a break.  Stop beating us upside the head.  There's a little thing called "nuance".  Try it.

I've been told, in no uncertainty, that certain people like this song.  I have no inkling why.  I've been scolded for choosing it as the worst song of all time, but you be the judge.

And excuse me while I reach for my bottle of Advil.

And the harmonica is annoying, too.  I'd rather be besieged by Bob Dylan blowing on his harp.
