Worst Songs Ever...

I had to drive up to Kingsport today (about an hour and 45 minutes each way) to pick up some pictures that were in a photo show that closed today. I drove the Corvette since I got to go by myself. I love to drive and I do some of my best thinking while driving. Anyway, I was thinking about the worst songs ever and how I wanted to do this post. After thinking of all the music I love, hate, dislike, or don't care about I decided that my list for Worst Songs Ever would either be very long or very short. I decided to go with very short. I just can't list all the songs by all the mediocre to bad bands that have existed. So I've kept my list down to 2, yes only TWO.

The first is Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus. I don't think that one needs any explanation.

And the second might be a surprise, but this song has always left me feeling sick to my stomach. I HATE it. It is...

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad by Meatloaf.

(I'll post the lyrics on the Lyrics blog.)

I'm not sure why I have such a violently visceral reaction to that song. I was only 9 or 10 when it came out, but even then it made me feel real bad. My parents separated for a while around that time, so maybe that has something to do with it. I know there are others songs that I dislike almost as much as that one, but I have to say that it's the Worst (besides Achy Breaky).

What do you think?

I commetned on those 2 over at Lyrics but I must say I think the worst song ever is a tie between Hammertime and The Humpty Dance.

The Humpty Dance? I don't know that one. But yeah, Hammertime is bad.

You know The Humpty Dance- it was big. The video had a guy being a foolish jerk with a big fake nose on.

Worst song of all time is "Timothy". It was a Rupert Holmes song...you know the Pina Colada guy...I don't remember if it was under his name or a band he was with or writing for. Anyhow, it's about these miners who got trapped in a mine (a true story by the way) and one of them survived by eating Timothy, one of the other trapped miners.

I'm sorry, but canibalism and pop music just don't mix! At least not in public...

I actually have fond memories of that meatloaf song.

gladly I don't know that one mr g. I agree canibalism doesn't mix with pop music.
