The Worst Song Ever Recorded

Wed Apr 23, 2003 5:46 am

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about "Listen At Work" (a.k.a. 'Muzak') music. A few minutes ago, this very same station [KOST 103.5], just finished playing the most hideous, toe-curling abomination of a song ever to be recorded.

I don't know what the name of it is nor who the so-called "artist" is. But here are a few of the lines from that song, which, incidentally, make me want to DO a few lines.

"I hope you still feel small when you stand next to the ocean/I hope you never settle for the path of least resistance/I hope that you'll give faith a fighting chance/I hope you'll dance"

Do not even TRY to tell me that the making of this song not only involved a substantial amount of narcotics, but a KFC bucket and a box of Häägen Dääz as well.

I should feel small when standing next to the ocean? Ok, that's a lesson in being humbled and how insignificant we are when compared to the rest of the world. I'll give her that. But DANCING?


I have never, EVER in all the years I have been going to the beach, never, not once seen a person dancing on the sand.

And this woman is suggesting that we do?


This is the type of song that can only appeal to the following types of people:

1) Flaming, flambuoyant gays

2) 18 year old boys who drive "Rice Rockets" (as seen at http://www.anti-rice.com>

3) The tramps that call themselves boyfriends to aforementioned group #2 and actually, as a result of their own spiritually and morally bankrupt existence would actually "spread" upon hearing this song.

4) Conformity whores. These are the ones that will participate in any trend, no matter how silly, stupid, or pointless it is, whether it's wearing a baseball cap backwards, or positioning the windshield wipers on their car halfway up, simply, because "that's what people are doing right now". These people are incapable of making decisions for themselves, including how many times a minute they should breathe, because they are co-dependant on having everything spoon fed to them.

Isn't that Leanne Womack (or something similiar???). It actually sounds like Dolly Parton if you ask me.

Anyway, the worst song is actually Mac Arthur Park by Richard Harris. You'll need to be near a toilet if you listen to it (for a variety of reasons)

That song is "I Hope You Dance" by LeeAnn Womack.
It is FAR from the worst song ever recorded. Its a song that can reach people in all walks of life, its a song that has inspired millions. I love the way you never fail to focus onyourself, MattD. Lets forget the thousands of people who drew strength and encouragement, or maybe just a smile, form something as simple as a song.

Well, that's YOUR opinion. And, as I'm entitled to my opinion, I'm here to say that yours is wrong.


Its a song that can reach people in all walks of life, its a song that has inspired millions.

The only things this song can inspire someone to do are get pregnant when you are neither financially nor emotionally prepared for it, to jump off a bridge, get hit by a train, and drive a needle into your arm.

I love the way you never fail to focus onyourself, MattD.

I am so level headed, and in touch with myself that I scare myself sometimes. I never allow my judgement to be clouded by pride, passion, lust, or by whatever the cover of GQ says. I am my own person, and am unshakable in my beliefs.

Lets forget the thousands of people who drew strength and encouragement

The sooner, the better.

or maybe just a smile, form something as simple as a song.

I love music as much as the next person. The only difference is that my music IS better than todays corporate, assembly line mass produced trash such as this song clearly is.

This is a simple song, clearly one that can only appeal to the simple minded.

Matt, working in radio I've heard far more than my share of really awful songs. Here's my Top 5:


5. Power of Love - Laura Branigan/Celine Dion
4. That's What Love Is All About - Michael Bolton
3. She's Like The Wind - Patrick Swayze
2. Could've Been - Tiffany

and the Prizewinner?

1. Heartbeat - Don Johnson


These songs not only nauseate, but have been known to induce chunky, projectile vomit in laboratory animals.

(Actually, I was going through a tough breakup when 'I Hope You Dance' was big, so it's got history with me. )

Should I have just admitted that? ? Yeah sure

No B-707, I was not happy because he died but I was happy because I knew there will be no more new songs from Queen. I really hate their music, today I was sitting in a Bistro and I heard two Queen songs, I had left immediately if there were a third Queen song.

"I Hope You Dance" isn't the worst song/music in the world....

-Fatboy Slim's "Rockafella Skank" or whatever is annoying as hell. Only about 10 words in the song, repeated over & over again.
-Madonna's "Die Another Day" would've made Ian Fleming turn over in his grave. How do Sigmund Freud and "Analyze this, analyze this, analyze this, analyze this...this...this...this" have anything to do with James Bond and that song?
-Britney Spears was OK when she started, but she & Christina Aguilera have taken the slut route & almost all of their stuff these days is trash.
-"Landslide" by the Dixie Chicks grew old fast....overplayed.
-Baha Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out?" always gave me a good cringe.
-No Doubt's music (some of it is OK).

The worst song ever recorded was "Seventeen" by "Winger." A nice little ditty advocating statutory rape coupled with one of the most irritating videos of all time. I have loathed this song since I was seventeen.

It would make me happy if Kip Winger died.

MattD: Let's just say that song was the only thing that helped me. I was dealing with much much more than my fathers death at the time.

ANYWAY........

What about 'You light up my life'? I know some people got married to that song, proposed to that song blahblahblah but it causes my ears to bleed! Also, anything by Creed sends me into convultions.

The worst songs ever recorded by human beeings are:

"Lisa - Mona Lisa"

and

"Die Zeit ist einsam"

two austrian contributions to the eurovision song contest (they scored 0 points if I remember it correctly) by Wilfried and Timna Brauer.

But there is a chance for that two songs to be toppled this year.
Austrias contribution to the song contest 2003 beats them all.

Alf Poier (a really funny guy) created a song that is "out of this world".
You have to see the eurovision song contest just for that song.
See and hear the austrian contribution for yourself, it will be an experience. You will never forget this historic moment, seeing the worst song performance ever to be broadcasted life on this planet.

Shania Twain sucks like an electrolux. Look at the tracklisting on her new album, for a start there's about 21 of the bastards and most of them have exclaimation marks. Some even have them half way through (see: 'Waiter! Bring Me Water!'). They're all idiotic catchphrases or limp single-entendres, and they all irritate the living fuck out of me.

I'm Gonna Get Ya Good!
(Wanna Get To Know You) That Good!
I'm Not In The Mood (To Say No)!
Ka-Ching!
What A Way To Wanna Be!

It's a goddam disgrace.

PS I would have to second the Steps and Westlife motion. And Gareth has made mincemeat out of a perfectly good song (Spirit In The Sky). Following in Will's footsteps after he killed Jose Feliciano's gorgeous version of Light My Fire. I guess our American guests don't know (a) who Will / Gareth / Westlife / Steps are, nor (b) how lucky they are. Still, you guys have American Idol so you probably have a whole raft of non-entities to tolerate for nine months til their careers fizzle. As Pete Burns (Dead Or Alive) said the other week about TV talent show winners: "They get to pretend to be a pop star for six months til their third single goes into the chart at number 10 and the next thing they know, they're homeless and destitute."

Continuing my suck list:
-"Love Shack" is horrible.
-Shania Twain's just annoying, plain & simple. I get annoyed by "I'm Gonna Get Ya Good", and seeing it many mornings at 6:20am on VH1 doesn't help it either. Adding to what Cedarjet said, I also have noticed some of the catchphrases in the middle of songs, such as "OK, So you're Brad Pitt?"
-Anything from any of the boy bands.
-Justin Timberlake has started to freak me out over the last year. That dude's wierd...the next Michael Jackson, maybe?
-Kelly Clarkson. A) Nobody who won a TV popularity contest (American Idol) should be a celebrity releasing albums. B) She isn't very good.

If McArther Park was so bad, why did it reach #2 on the US charts?

Because Americans are idiots, that's why. I touched on this in the original post, and I quote:" Conformity whores. These are the ones that will participate in any trend, no matter how silly, stupid, or pointless it is, whether it's wearing a baseball cap backwards, or positioning the windshield wipers on their car halfway up, simply, because "that's what people are doing right now". These people are incapable of making decisions for themselves, including how many times a minute they should breathe, because they are co-dependant on having everything spoon fed to them."

And it's no different with music. There are an awful lot of people that, no matter WHAT MTV puts out, they'll like it. [I realize that I'm singling out MTV. We also have the equally vapid VH1, Billboard Magazine, and (here in SoCal), KIIS FM. But MTV is probably the best known.]

If MTV were to put out a video, complete with big sweaty burly men, wearing cutoff shorts and soiled tank-tops [Which MX_5Boy would LOVE], complete with a gaggle of semi-nude (or, indeed, TOTALLY nude) swimsuit models gyrating around them, to a background of one single pluck of a guitar string being played over and over, MILLIONS of people will love it. You will see all the teenage boys driving down the street in their parents Camrys (or their Riced Out Hondas if their parents are rich), complete with the bass turned up all the way, and you'll be hearing at 378 dB: TWANG-TWANG-TWANG-TWANG.

So you see, it doesn't matter what the QUALITY of the music is. What matters is the POPULARITY of the music.

This is where I stand proudly alone: What I feel is the best music, will only be found in the $7.99 clearance bins at Tower Records, or for $4.99 on Ebay because it's been out of print for 6 years.

I think fusion rock is like trying to go to the bathroom after you've expelled all your waste. Its not fun, if it was considered jazz or classical it would be different but it should not be classified as rock.

i'm surprised no one's mentioned this yet . . . the all-time prize nausea inducer has to be "Seasons in the Sun" (Terry Jacks). Those of you who were born too late to suffer through that one, thank your lucky stars!

But, you can have a lot of fun with these songs if you're in a band with the right attitude --- a couple years ago, the one i jammed with for a while decided to punk them up a bit. So, the amps went up to 11, the lead singer turned into a lead screamer, and we spent a few happy sessions destroying Hit me baby one more time, Careless Whispers, and other such monstrosities. Happy times...

Cheers,

Anyone heard the Father Ted classic, My Lovely Horse? I know that was meant to be funny, but it's awful!!

Here is a list of some other musical abominations, which I feel are mainly to blame for all of the problems in society today, including crime, rape, robbery, arson, embezzlement, adultery, abortion clinic bombings, 9/11, and old people doing 25 in the fast lane with their blinkers on. All prints (including the original master tapes) should be burned.


1. "Mmmm-bbbob" by Hanson.

2. "Me And A Dog Named Lobo"

3. "Kung Fu Fighting"

4. All songs by Alannis Morrisette. All future ones as well.

5. Anything from Neil Sedaka, Bread, Paul Anka, Menudo, and The Chipmunks.

6. Sheryl Crow should be required by Federal Law to get a tracheotomy so she can never wail into a microphone again.

7. Anything from Celine Dion (except for "I Drove All Night"-which I have to admit is actually a pretty good song, of course, it's not actually HER song.)

8. "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon ("Clouds In My coffee"? Exactly WHAT was in that coffee for there to be clouds?)

9. Pretty much any song to make the Top 40 since about 1991.

I've just been listening to CD called "The Best One Hit Wonders" and there's one really awful song on it: "Money" by the Flying Lizards ... utterly revolting, how this was ever a "hit" is way beyond me!

Also on the same CD, deserving honourable mention, are "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors and "I Touch Myself" by The DiVinyls - because, well, they're a bunch of wankers  Big grin

And Matt D, I'm on the side of those who think "I Hope You Dance" was an OK song. Sticky syrupy maybe, but as with many other songs, it puts into words feelings that people can have a certain times of their lives - in this case, it's a break-up/closure song.
