    Nothing could possibly be worse than Terry Jacks and that maudlin mess, "Seasons in the Sun." After the first verse I was screaming, "So, die already and put us out of YOUR misery!!!!"

    Has anyone read Dave Barry's "Book of Bad Songs"? Most of the songs you've listed are mentioned, and it's laugh-out-loud funny from time to time.

    Dan Hill - "Sometimes When We Touch" - My dad and I used to make really rude gagging noises whenever this came on the radio.
    Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods - "Billy Don't be a Hero" - my best buddy from high school STILL sings this to see if she can make me go "ewww".

    (~sings~) It's the songs that make you go ewww...


    There are lots more, but it's early and time to get to work. Happy Friday, everybody!

    I love Dave Barry, Rave, but didn't know about the book - I'll ask at the library. Gotta go too - Happy Friday!!

    One more...I think that Paul McCartney's Grecian Formula hair dye was causing brain damage when he did "Ebony and Ivory".

    Bye!

    One of the things I just LOVE about getting involved in threads like this is ending up with some of these songs going through your head all day.... :D :D

    My partial list, since it's early yet and I haven't had all my coffee:

    Midnight at the Oasis
    Because You Loved Me
    Believe and Song for the Lonely by Cher -- can't believe THIS kind of junk revived her singing career -- the really bad stuff from the 70s at least has kind of a fun mortification value.

    The champion would have to be We Built This City by Starship -- there was a scene in a Grace Under Fire episode where Brett Butler is driving home from work and "White Rabbit" is playing on the radio and she starts banging on the steering wheel saying "I can't believe this is the same group that recorded We Built This City!!!" That about sums it up.....

    "We Built This City" was named the worst song ever on VH1 last night. Next was "Achy Breaky Heart"

    There was a song out a couple of years ago, that went ''A little bit of Monica yada, yada..... A little bit of Julie.....'' Whoever wrote that had to be obsessed with a ''little bit''.

    So it was the Grecian Formula! I knew there had to be a reasonable explanation for Sir Paul...
    "Ebony and Ivory" is infinitely better than some of his other collaborative efforts. The worst that comes to mind is "The Girl is Mine" with Michael Jackson. This song contains the infamous line, "Don't waste your time....because the doggone girl is mine."
    Oy, vey!
