Rest of the week
Therefore, this project is fucking fantastic!
but agree on Nizlopi - 'The JCB Song' Colonel Kurtz himself couldn't have constructed such an abomination of the spirit.
is unutterably atrocious.
Basically whenever I think about the shittiest songs ever recorded, my mind turns to the time when I worked in a music shop which was owned by this pathetic housewife called Kaye, her husband was some wealthy business dude and he'd bought her a CD shop so that she'd have something to do on her weekdays while the kids were at school.
As well as being a hypochondriac and a whining pain in the arse, she was spectacularly clueless about anything to do with music or running a business. She'd hang around the shop because that's what she was supposed to be doing, but her main activities were drinking tea, having a headache, and playing music in the shop that didn't exacerbate her pain. Everything she listened to was homicide-inducingly terrible, and it was a few years ago now but I still remember some of her favourites, which are my ipso facto my All-Time Most Hated Songs Ever. They include:
Dr Hook - anything & everything
Elton John - Daniel
Elton John - Crocodile Rock
Elton John - A Song For Guy
Chris Rea - Lady in Red
Vangelis - Chariots Of Fire Theme
Billy Joel - James
Billy Joel - She's Always a Woman To Me
Billy Joel - The Longest Time
Roberta Flack - Killing Me Softly
America - everything off their Greatest Hits album
Janis Ian - At 17
Willie Nelson - Stardust
... will post a few more of Kaye's Picks later if I think of them
Ferryman was great
Damon would curate an incredible one
truly atrocious song. A staple track for the end of bad club nights throughout the land
What I can't understand is thinking 'Ignition (Remix)' is not only bad but one of the worst 200 songs you've heard. That's crazy!
Then, when I saw Will Smith's name I almost passed out thinking you'd put "Black Suits Comin' (Nod Ya Head)" in there. Don't get any ideas.
even if it didn't make the top 200. Vile song.
To be fair though, I don't think Marling would say it's a good song.
but i would include the other two interminable dirges (whitney houstens I will always love you and celine dions titanic dirge
which at least is not claiming to be a proper song
But ALL My Life? Come on!
Big Sur and Don't You (Forget About Me) are great though
for bumping this thread.
I am the table!
