Good Playlist, Bad Playlist

Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:16 am

Here's your chance to be the controller. The possibilities are unlimited. This is just another fun thread. Make a playlist of songs you absolutly love and another for songs that you can't stand. Like politics, music can bring out the extremes and outspoken feelings in us. Have fun! I will try to list both playlists by decade to make it easier. It's your choice what you do!

Playlist from Heaven
  • 1950's: Original version of Houndog I believe that was Ruth Brown
  • Elvis I've Been Stung
  • Tennesee Earnie Ford 16 Tons
  • Clovers: Come and Stay Awhile
  • The Revells Deadman's Stroll
  • Diamonds: The Stroll
  • Little Richard The Girl Can't Help It
  • 5 Keys Ling Ting Taw
  • Impalas: Sorry Ran All The Way Home
  • Van McCoy as MIxmasters: Your're the One To Blame


Most of you were not even thought of so I'll move forward

1960's
  • Johnny Cash Ring Of Fire
  • Cliff Richard Move On ?
  • Shirelles: Met Him On a Sunday both versions. Forgot to ad original 1958 version to 50's list.They redid it in 1966.
  • The Distants Hold On
  • Billy Abbot and the Jewels Groovy Baby
  • Ruby and the Romantics: Our Day Will Come and the flip side
  • Chantays: Pipeline
  • Any Ventures tune
  • Del Shannon: Little Town Flirt
  • 4 Seasons Walk Like A Man
  • Any Herman Hermits or Dave Clark Tune
  • Strawberry Alarm Clock: Incense and Peppermint
  • Bob Dylan: Lay Lady Lay
  • Marvin Gaye: STubborn Kind of Fellow (all his stuff was great)
  • Beatles: Twist and Shout, most of their music
  • Diana Ross and Supremes: Remove This Doubt
  • Vanilla Fudge: You Keep Me Hanging On
  • Chambers Brothers: Time Has Come Today, I Can't Stand It
  • DC5: No Time to Loose
  • Rolling Stones: Think


More to come stay tuned.

Bad play list:

You Light Up My Life by Debbie Boone.

  

Sorry for the break, now that I have a little time here are some of my contributions towards my concept of a playlist from Hell:

  • Gogi Grant: Wayward Wind 1956
  • The Little Chapel
  • Honeycomb 1957
  • Buchannan and Goodman: Flying Saucer 1956 (started a novelty song trend from hell)
  • Volare: Both versions, should have kept it in Italy
  • "Tammy" I belive Debby Reynolds croaked that one out in 1958
  • Johnny Horton: North To Alaska (1959/1960)
  • Anything by Connie Francis
  • Go Away Little Girl (1963 Steve Lawrence and Edie Gourmet) 8 years later Donny and his Osmonds did a cover that was even
    more putrid.
  • Maurice Chevalier: Thank Heaven for Little Girls (1958?) Seemed that every variety show back in the 50's awlays had the French creepy crooner or ugly honker Jimmy Durante.   
  • Nino Tempo/April Stevens: Deep Purple 1963
  • Singing Nun: Dominique 1963 (This would have never made it but she got the timing right (within a month of JFK's assination.
  • Anything Wayne Newton
  • B Boris Picket and his Crypt Kickers: Monster Mash 1962/1973
  • Napolean IV: There Coming To Take Me Away to the Funny Farm (1965) Was re-released in the early 70's
  • Bob Dylan: Rainy Day Woman (I believe this was the title, I know it as Everybody just is Stoned) 1965 had that same awful beat as the funny farm song They're Coming To Take Me Away.
  • Barry Sadler: Ballad of the Green Beret
  • Barbara Mason (one of the few R&B songs on this list) Are You Ready
  • Beatles: Ob La Di Ob La Da and Rocky Racoon
  • BJ Thomas: Rock and Roll Lullaby (1971)
  • Melanie Brand New Key 1971
  • Paper Roses (early 70's forgot the female singer but it sucked)
  • Sly and Family Stone Family Affair 1971-otherwise I really enjoyed Sly and his group.
  • Smokin in the Boys Room: Brownsville Station
  • All Helen Ready especially Ruby Redress
  • Guilbert O'Sullivan: Both Alone Again Naturally and Claire
  • King Harvest: Dancin in the Moonlight 1972 even hated the name of this group
  • Ocean: Put Your Hand In the Hand 1971
  • Jackson 5 Little Bitty Pretty One. Original rocked back in the 50's by Bobby Day
  • Lee Michaels: Do You Know What I Mean 1971 take the same stupid lyrics and keep repeating
  • Mungo Jerry: In The Summer Time 1970


More to come

Frank I'm Gonna put you in cement shoes Sinatra: That's Life and Strangers In The Night (However, My Way, and especially "This Town" were fantastic.
Elton John: Benny and the Jets
Johnny Rivers: Rockin Pnemonia and Boogy Woogy Flu (enough to induce the Swine or Bird Flu)
Anything bette Midler: A cow that could stop a 747. especially Boogy Woogy Bugle Boy of Company D
Bozz Scaggs: Any of his drivel: Lido Shuffle and that other puker hit from 1976

Barbara "Like Buttah" Steisand: Her horrid version of Sweet Inspirations
The Curly Shuffle
Nina: 99 Luft Baloons (WTF)

Bobby Mc Pherron: Don't Worry Be Happy ( I remember a news story in Baltimore back in the day where someone shot up a school or library and this teacher who looked like the 80's version of "Precious" led the kiddies to sing off key Don't Worry Be Happy!
The Macarena (need I justify)
Lou Bega: Mambo Number 5
That strange song: Hands Up (a Club Med and New York/New Jersey Staple) Never heard South of the Mason Dixon Line (Thank God)
The Electric Slide
Manama Nap 1969 (made too famous on Benny Hill and Muppets) whovever created this song should be emasculated.
Any Lady Ga Ga and Madonna crap: They may look hot but they are two whacked out Guidettes that should be on Jersey Shore.

How's that for hurl inducing music?

The Carpenters did a remake of Please Mr. Postman in what, 1975? Granted it wasn't one of their best, but I dare you to try and find anyone else on the planet who would say that Karen Carpenter couldn't sing!

One of my all time favourites!

Now give me a while and I'll try and come up with my own lists too!

Yeeha! Have I got a story for you!
Back in 1984 when this was a hit, I worked at a small radio station upstate in Maryland (Have De Grace). If there is a hell this would be one of it's radio stations   . I worked one Sunday Afternoon on the AM side. There was an FM station too.
My fellow DJ/announcer Todd was manning the FM. This place still featured reel to reel tape decks circa 1956! Correction, Todd was in the so called production studio. I had to man both stations. All of a sudden at 707 decibels I hear 99 Luftballons. Bad enough but wait! There's more. Todd kept playing this song dozens of times. Oh lovely, this dude has lost it! In the middle of nowhere and I had two stations to run with news etc. I was minutes away from my scheduled local newscast. There was a local story of a serial rapist loose on this small town! Oh my! (serial rapist of farm animals that is)
Bovines and goats were the victims. Also this rapist (s) liked doing dirty deeds done with sheep. So imagine me having to read this breaking story and keep a straight face and have Nina bleating out that song. The locals if they heard this over my critter caper story would think this farm animal molesting perv worked at our station. So, I put on one of the corn honker tunes and went to check up on him. If I had to call for a meat wagon to cart him off to the puzzle house...
I ask him if he was OK. He then said"don't you get the ramifications of this deep song and it's impact on the human psyche?" With that it was news time and I told him to rest well and did the news cow shagger and all. Thank God no one called. I then went into the crapper and lost it laughing sounding like Mutely the asthmatic cartoon doggy.

Figures, I've never met a song from an Osmond that I tolerated. At least Marie has MILF'D out in her middle age post DWTS.

The Carpenters had musical talent. But, Please Mr. Postman was so horrid that it didn't even sound like Karen. White Bread artists are better to leave some of the R&B classics alone. Remember Pat Boon's covers back in the day?

Elton's album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was a classic. Benny was overplayed and at least in my opinion was the weakest link of an otherwise excellent album. To each his or her own.

I was 10 years old in 5th grade when that song came out. Our gym teacher made us dance to that song.

They were the soundtrack to my adolecence. I chose to listen to them and their songs are nothing by happiness for me.

Anything by Connie Francis

She was the soundtrack to my pre-adolecence. Thanks, dad. It was what he decided we should listen to. That and surf music. Have you heard? Everybody knows the bird is the word. I'll give you a word! Oh, wait... family forum...

I like the song 99 Red Baloons. Both German and English. I really like changing up different songs and heard a really great version of 99 Red Baloons by Goldfinger. Check it out, if you are one of the ones who does not hate that song.

He made us dance to other songs such as;

Bad Boys Stick Together - Wham!
Let's Hear if For The Boys - Denise Williams
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Karma Chameleon - The Culture Club
Break My Stride - Matthew Wilder

We had to wear leotards too. It was a school of performing arts and everyone had to take classes in other disciplines. I went there for art. Yet I still had to take classes in music, dance, choir and drama.
Come to think of it, it wasn't a gym teacher, it was the dance class in place of P.E. at that school.
Even the art classes was a waste because I wanted to draw and design houses, buildings, airports and subway stations.
Instead I wasted a year drawing baskets of fruits & flowers and force to wear leotards and dance to songs by Wham! and the Culture Club.
Though that experience did encourage me to learn a string instrument (violin and string bass) and today I still play guitar & bass.

Lost In Love can be a challenging song to play on acoustic guitar.
