Vomit Worthy Hurl Inducing One Hit Wonders!

Sun Feb 11, 2007 2:37 pm

When it's time for another vapid thread who else can you turn to but Zippyjet? We've featured underrated One Hit Wonders and your all time favorites. Well, time for the dark side! Those 1 hit blunders oops I meant wonders from hell!
In no particular order, let me take you on an excursion to the Twighlight Zone of crappy music. Without further ado here they are by decade.

1950's

  • The Wayward Wind----Gogi Grant
  • Volare (Original Version)----Domenico Mondugno (even a song Tony Soprano could hate!)
  • Singing the Blues----Guy Mitchell
  • Tammy----Debby Reynolds
  • Alley Oop---Hollywood Argyles
  • He's Got The Whole World in His Hands----Laurie London


1960's
  • Sukiyaki----Kyu Sakamoto
  • Dominique---The Singing Nun
  • The Men in My Little Girl's Life----Mike Douglass
  • They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Ha----Napolean XIV (One of my ultra bottom feeders!)
  • MacArthur Park---Richard Harris (Ironically, I really like the 4 Tops Version)
  • Smile a Little Smile for Me----The Flying Machine (sucks, that this abortion had to have a group named after aviation!)
  • Barefootin---Robert Parker
  • The Birds and the Bees---Jewell Aiken?



    1970's (This may take several posts!)

    • In the Summertime---Mungo Jerry
    • Sweet Mary----Wadsworth Mansion
    • Gimme Dat Ding----The Pipkins (Another bottom feeder)
    • Ma Belle Amie----The Tea Set (probably the first Gay song)(and another super puker)
    • Rose Garden----Lynn Anderson
    • Are You Ready?----Pacific Gas & Electric
    • Help Me Make It Through The Night----Sami Smith
    • The Desiderata-----Les Crane
    • Chick-A-Boom----Daddy Dewdrop (Another abortion)
    • Put Your Hand in the Hand----Ocean (another bottom feeder)
    • One Toke Over the Line----Brewer & Shipley (drug music)
    • Precious and Few----Climax (makes me think of anything but)
    • Gone---Joey Heatherton (keep on going and don't come back)
    • Popcorn-----Hot Butter
    • How Do You Do----Mouth and MacNeal (Ikea Rock meets Gay)
    • Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues----Danny O'Keefe (I did too after listening to this swill)
    • Convention '72----Delegates (Novelty shit where one splices records together to talk is so corny)
    • Beautiful Sunday---Daniel Boone (why fuck up Sunday?)
    • Dead Skunk-----Loudon Wainwright III (This Weasel is from $$$$$ why put roadkill to song?)
    • Brother Louie----Stories (Longhairs who can't sing if their lives depended on it!)
    • Dancing in the Moonlight---King Harvest (More drug music)
    • The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia----Vickie Lawerence (set women back 50 years)
    • Playground in My Mind----Clint Holmes ( I heard he was booed in Atlantic City when being the opening act for a major league comedian back in the late 70's. I wonder why?)
    • Smokin' in the Boys Room----Brownsville Station (A couple of dudes who can't sing smoke and schtupp in the boys room.)
    • Beach Baby----First Clas (try 69th. class)
    • I Can Help----Billy Swan (But in this artist's case mental retardation can't be helped)
    • The Night Chicago Died----Paper Lace (more fay music that is beyond ripe)
    • Hooked on a Feeling----Blue Swede (turned a classic into a laughable farce and that beginning sounds like a poor kitty puking hairballs)
    • The Lord's Prayer-----Sister Janet Mead (Keep Religion out of rock please)
    • Shaving Cream---Benny Bell (straight from hell and not funny)
    • Feelings----Morris Albert (has fouled the genre of lounge singers worldwide)
    • Get Dancin'-----Disco Tex & The Sex-O-Lettes (bad disco was a Soviet plot to destroy the free world!)
    • Junk Food Junkie----Larry Groce (Gross)
    • Mah Na Mah Na-----Piero Umiliani (the seamier sounds of Benny Hill)
    • You Light Up My Life----Debby Boone (words can't describe what I feel about this shitter)
    • King Tut---Steve Martin (keep your day job/mediocre comedy)


    I'll take a break for now...but the 80's and beyond are coming right at you with a bullet!

    Try Come on, Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners. The Jack FM station here at YYC just has to play it at least twice when I'm listening to them.

    Buster Poindexter also had "Hot Hot Hot". That makes me want to chuck my radio out of my bedroom window.

    The number one One-Hit Wonder: the Macarena. That song STILL gives me nightmares. My elementary school forced me to dance to that song in Grade 1 (it was 1996 at the time, when that song became real popular).

    Those are my top three choices for "vomit-inducing" one-hit wonders.

    You think you got it bad? That song was a hit in Latin America a full year before it was known up there in your neck of the woods!

    Though I never really minded it... brings happy memories, actually.

    Wow, I think that song was popular maybe 3-6 months here in N. America/Canada.

    I think another One-Hit Wonder that bit the dust was Lou Bega's Mambo Number 5. I used to love it, now I just think it's kind of lame.

    That song was so bad and got so many complaints from Mental Health organizations that it was generally pulled by the radio stations shortly after it came out.
    There have been a lot of bad OHW's since the 1950's. There used to be back in the 1960''s and into the early 1980's a California based DJ, 'Dr. Demento' , who specialized in novelty and bad songs and had a syndicated program for radio stations across the USA of his umm...selections.

    I hadn't gotten to the 90's and 21st. Century yet but, I hated this piece of shit from the start! When it came out in the fall of '99, I endured him performing this crap on many of the late night talk shows. The final straw was when Jenny Jones rolled him out on her crappo talk fest when she was trying to be black and hip with laughable results. For awhile, each major network rolled out network promos based on this song hyping their shows. Fortunatly, Mambo 5 grew real old real fast. Rumor has it, the artist or the writers were actually referring to same sex male/boy lovers but used chick names instead to appeal to Middle America. BTW, Lou Bega was one of the forces with Metalica and the lawyers that started the anti-download junngenaut. Which in turn has backfired on the mediocre payola music industry.

    That Blount wimp with the "Your Beautiful Song." A croaking singer.

    And, that Gay Mix radio song You Had A Bad Day.

    Kelly Clarkson will be a limited hit wonder at best if not a 1 hit wonder.

    I don't know if this is off-topic or not, but I have been looking through each of these one-hit blunders (credit goes to Zippyjet).

    Why do people put such atrocities on the radio? What is the point? I mean, if you're going to put this crap on the radio, put it on a radio station that does just one-hit wonders!

    Another one-hit wonder: Ricky Martin-Livin' La Vida Loca. I swear, I think that is the only song I have heard by him that hit #1 on the charts back in 1999 (if I am wrong, correct me).

    Cheers.

    Why Thank You for the props!

    You've always had shit that made it to the top of the charts on the radio; especially here in the USA. Even back in the infancy of Rock and Roll (1950s) there was payolla; where shady record producers/companies greased the palms of radio stations to get their shit played in high rotation. But, at least before the 70s, generally you had to have some talent to make it in the music business. Some of the early 1 hit wonders were the leftover fuddy duddy crap that revolved around Lawrence Welk and the old Your Hit Parade. For example Put A Nickel in the Nickelodian song. Novelty music is an oxymoron because at first it is novel then, when it becomes a monster hit it's overplayed to death. The Coming To Take Me Away abortion hit twice, originally in 65 or 66 then came back in the early 70s. Battle of the Green Berets another one hit wonder I loathed and The Singing Nun's Dominique were odd ducks. Dominique was a bridge song from the sha-boom doowap of the 50's and early 60s that happened to hit as a result of JFK's assination. The country was down and blue during the end of 63 into early 64 before the Beetles hit America with a vengence.

    Green Beret was sort of pro military right wing propaganda that came out just as the USA realized the Viet Nam War like W's Iraq fiasco today was a waste of time and lives that profited a few fat cats. The timing again was right. America was still flying high with the space program, the economy was doing well and we were a year or two away from the hippies, drugs and free love eras.

    1968 was interesting in that, there was a lot of misery and change but, one hit country hits proliferated that awful year.
    Harper Valley PTA, Little Arrows, Honey and Green Apples exploded on the charts. Moving along to 1970 and 1971 I swore that those two years especially 1970 had the most number one hit wonders. Once we got into the mid 70s and beyond, sex, sex, drugs and rock and roll propelled a lot of talent challenged people to their 15 minutes of fame, riches and bad music. Today, lawyers, drugs, sex and unscrupulous bean counters dictate music and as our society is dumbed down, if the artist has sexy legs and ass she can literally croak and bark her way to the top of the music charts. Thank God for Internet radio, Sirius and XM! I feel when push comes to shove, the music from 1955 to 1972 (good stuff) will stand the test of time! Future generations will cherrish Jerry Butler, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, James Brown, Lenard Skinnard while saying King Harvest who? Lou Bega who? Buster Poindexter who? Macarena who?

    No, I may not be that old, but I am fond of 70s music.

    That song made me want to light my radio on fire and huck it into a pool of jet fuel.

    Rick Dees can burn in Hell for creating such a stupid song.

    When this song came out, I was really pissed that older people refused to believe the Starland Vocal Band was singing about a daytime fuckfest. I tried to explain it to them and they'd say shit like, "No, they're not. They wouldn't let that kind of song on the radio." Then it hit #1 on the charts and stayed there for weeks. Festering. Rotting people's brains. Then, to make matters worse, they sang the goddamned thing at the Grammys! Most useless piece of musical shit ever.

    Some more crappers I can think of:

    It Never Rains in So. California -around 1973
    Your Chewing Gum?---Lonnie Donnigan-1962
    The County Jail? early 70's group sounded like the ballroom blitz group
    Disco Duck (I agree, Rick Dees was, is and will always be an asshole) He comes from that mold of obnoxious DJ's Dr. Demento, Ryan Seecrest.
    Winchester Cathedral---New Vaudeville Band? 1965
    Deep Purple---Nino Tempo and April Stevens---1963

    I'll think up more 4 U all!

    And don't forget Fadodey do do!

    Some more:

    1973---Get That Gasoline

    1974/1975---Life is Just A Rock and Roll Oldie or Jukebox? Where a nasal effeminate lead singer chortles off dozens of classic good songs.

    Billy Swan--- I Can Help---And what sucks big time is that they use this shitter song for commercials! There's one
    today on the radio using it.

    Though not a 1 hit but 2 hitter, Melanie's Brand New Key. Her other song ironically was good.

    I can't believe I forgot The Bay Shitty Rollers! They were pegged as the next it band that would again revolutionize music like the Beatles did in the early 60's.

    Also, Hello Mudda Hello Faddah---Al Sherman-1963

    Nadia's Theme

    The Sting

    The Desideratta-Les Crane: He bumbled and sounded like Jackie Mason mentioining stupid moonbeam crap. I knew this decade called the 70's was going to be a doozy!

    Son of A Father-Gaudio (early middle 70's)

    Brandy-The Looking Glass

    King Harvest-Dancing in the Moonlight.

    and any of those stupid novelty songs where some hacks edit and splice lines from other songs and try to pass it off as comedy.  vomit

    Another one-hit wonder was the Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out?". That was one of the most annoying, low-point songs of the 21st century (released in 2000).

    Who could forget
    "The Safety Dance" by Men without Hats from
    "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc
    "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles
    "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" by Boys Don't Cry

    My #1 "Must Destroy" song has to be "Mickey" by Toni Basil. That lump of poop reeks worse than a construction site outhouse after the foreman brought 5-alarm chili for the workers. I hate that song (it's stuck in my head and refuses to leave).

    A crapper one but not in the leage of my elite bottom feeders such as Mambo #5, You lite up my life.

    And, Toni Basil was a hottie cheerleader, I'd love to fuck but yes, I'd put a muzzle on her so she couldn't do that stupid song.

    You know, I just noticed that maybe 60-70% of the one-hit blunders (once again, thanks Zippyjet for that) have been either late 70s or 80s.

    I wonder, since I wasn't alive in the 1980s, were there more one-hit wonders in that decade then there are now? Or is this just irrelevant?

    Cheers,

    "You Light Up My Life"

    Damn you for mentioning that. That's #1 puke and chuck for me. The radio stations played that thing every 30 minutes. Every f*cking radio station played it every 30 minutes. For nearly 4 months straight! You couldn't escape Debby Boone and her song about God. I am the only one who knew that? I think so. Everyone else thought she was singing about a sailor boy.

    I got in trouble in high school for rewriting the lyrics and calling it as "You Light Up My Wife."

    There seemed to be spikes in 1 hit blunders/wonders. 1969, 1970 and 1971 seemed to be period of explosive here today gone tommorrow artists/songs.

    Generally, the 70s and 80s seemed to have a lot of them. This was the period where music really seperated into the genres we have today. During the late 50s through say 1971 you had AM top 40 radio and that was it. During the formative years of rock and roll, you had R & B, Country, The Itialian American New York/New Jersey Crooners (1959-1963), British Invasion, Garage Rock and pshydelic rock all on 1 station. A lot of crossover and people got exposed to music they'd normally never listen to. Along comes 1972 and beyond FM becomes popular and music seperates again.
    Then, as the 70s wore on we got more visual and less focussed on raw talent. The 80s brought on MTV and then it was sex sex sex and shake your skimpy little booty. Bring in drugs, bean counters, lawyers and big money and it's homogonized. Now with American Idol, You Tube there will be more of them 1 hit wonders. And also, there's that best new artist Grammy curse. Remember the mediocre effeminate Christopher Cross and Sailing? No, I didn;t think so.
    Until music returns to it's routes and you get away from the sex and visuals and go back to real talent heart and soul be prepared for more flash in the litter pan 1 hit crap.
