    Thumbs down

    "Lay, Lady, Lay" - Bob Dylan
    "Smokin' in the Boys Room" (YES, INDEED!) - Brownsville Station
    "Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue" Crystal Gayle
    "Sylvia's Mother" - Dr. Hook
    "Rock the Boat" - Hues Corporation

    "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" - Tiny Tim (Don't you want to know the truth behind that name?)

    "Angel of the Morning" - by that excellent songstress, Juice Newton
    "Shake Your Booty" - K.C. & The Sunshine Band
    "In the Year 2525" - Zager & Evans
    "Careless Whisper" - WHAM!
    "I Am I Said" (Huh?) - Neil Diamond
    "I Honestly Love You" - Olivia Newton-John
    "Reunited" - Peaches & Herb

    "Sugar, Sugar" - The Archies (Actually, this is the song I meant before when I wrote "Candy Girl"--which is, actually, another gag-me song. In "Sugar, Sugar" there is a line "You are my CANDY GIRL, & you've got me watching you... blah blah blah gag me)

    And speaking of candy, "Candy Man" by Sammy Davis, Jr. is a major gag-me song.

    There are so many gems to choose from, really!

    Gosh, every single one of these songs is just awful. I laughed aloud as I read each title, hearing the song play in my head, which led me to an automatic gag reflex reaction.

    I will add "Butterfly Kisses" to the bad song list.
    Totally agree with "Sometimes When We Touch".

    I hate that song, too, but for some reason, it doesn't bother me as much sung by Bette Midler.

    Maybe somebody already posted this, but how about:
    Walk with me sunshine/Dance with me world
    It's a zippity doo dah day!
    I'm the happiest girl, in the whole USA!

    by the inimitable Donna Fargo

    What I wouldn't give to hear somebody sing that song on American Idol just to hear Simon's response.

    Crossing over into Country opens up the door to lots of bad songs!

    Stand By Your Man
    You Ain't Woman Enough To take My Man
    The Pill




    Country music is about losing, your woman, your man, your Mama, your job, your truck, or your dog:D :D :D

    Whoever thought maritime disasters should be set to music should be keel-hauled. For instance "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", "Sink the Bismarck" :sheesh: ugh.

    Johnny Horton is guilty for "Sink the Bismark" and also the lovely ditty "The Battle of New Orleans". He also sang "North to Alaska" which I like. A little history................

    Johnny Horton

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Johnny Horton had several top ten songs in the late 50's and early 60's and was on the verge of becoming one of the top stars of the 60's when he met with tragedy.


    He was born John Gale Horton in Los Angeles in 1925. He was raised in Tyler, Texas. Horton worked in the fishing industry in Alaska and California, and attended Seattle University. He worked for a while as a carpenter, and played basketball at Baylor University. He worked at a local radio station in East Texas and at the Hometown Jamboree in California. He did some recording with little success for the Abbott, Mercury, and Dot labels and picked up the nickname the Singing Fisherman. Horton became a regular on the Louisiana Hayride.

    Johnny married Billie Jean Jones, the widow of country music legend Hank Williams. He sang country songs and signed a recording contract with Columbia, where he would achieve his greatest success. Some of his first hits included Honky Tonk Man, I'm A One-Woman Man in 1956, Coming Home in 1957 and All Grown Up in 1958. He topped the country charts in 1959 with When It's Springtime In Alaska.

    Johnny Horton then began to record a series of saga songs that crossed over to the pop charts. He covered Jimmy Driftwood's The Battle Of New Orleans in 1959. The song topped the country charts and it reached number one on the pop charts, where it remained for a solid six weeks. The song was a tribute to the final battle of the War of 1812. He also recorded Sink The Bismarck in 1960, a song that was suggested by the film of the same title; it went top ten country and pop. Johnny Horton was a star. He sang the title song for the John Wayne movie North To Alaska and it too made the top ten in both charts during the same year.

    On November 5, 1960, while North To Alaska was still climbing the charts, Horton was killed in an automobile accident in Milano, Texas following an appearance at the Skyliner in Austin. Following Horton's death some of his earlier hit songs made the charts once again. Albums of his recordings were compiled and issued in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's, and they are still selling.

    His biography was published in 1983 under the title Your Singing Fisherman.
