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.

Worst Song of All Time? ~ Part 3

I will admit, here and now, that, though I'd heard of this song, I had never actually heard it.

However, since my friend Lori told me that this was the worst song of all time, I felt compelled to actually watch the video.

My first thought was that it was a joke, but it's apparently not! 

As everyone knows, joke songs can't qualify for the worst song of all time list, but since this song is apparently sincere, well, there you go....

I really have nothing more to say about that.

What's The Worst Song of All Time? ~ Part 2

In my quest to discover the worst song of all time, I now present my friend Barb's choice.

There are two trains of thought regarding this song.  Number one, it is the VERY FAVORITE song of all pre-teen boys in the 1980's; and two, it really is the worst song of all time.  Comme ci, comme ├ža, as someone who actually understands French might say.

If you are a big fan of keyboard synthesization, you no doubt love this song.  If you are not a fan of cheesy oft-repeated lyrics, then.....

In searching for the music video of this song, I discovered that EMI Music has prohibited any users from posting it, because, well, you know, it's so VALUABLE.  However, EMI does have its own video available.  Unfortunately, one is forced to slog through a long commercial before actually watching.  Maybe it won't happen here, in this post.  I hope not.

Here is Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night":

What is The Worst Song of All Time?

You know how Fridays at work are.  Yes, you work, but things are a little more laid back.  You can take a few moments to ponder the important things in life.

Thus, I posed the question to my co-worker, "What is the worst song of all time?"

We all, of course, have our own opinions.  One woman's hatred is another woman's heart and joy (go figure!)

As my friend mulled over her choice, I took a moment to Google some lists of the worst songs ever.  Most of the lists contained several of the same songs.  That's not playing fair.

We have to come up with our OWN selection.  

Thus, here is Michele's (and it's really an inspired choice!)

Two of my compadres were out of the office today, so I await their responses.  I will let you know.

By the way, what is yours?
