    EVERYBODY WANG CHUNG TONIGHT!


    Is Wang Chung a noun or a verb?

    Ladies and Gentleman,

    I must say this...

    The Song That Never Ends

    is one of the most unpleasant video/audio combinations of song ever; however, our criteria is the most annoying.

    The smooth sounding glorification of ignorance and meaninglessness, along with the pointless meandering of music and lyric is

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1cAY2xdUtY"]YouTube - What A Wonderful World[/ame]


    YouTube - What A Wonderful World

    In addition, look at the unfair association with a perfectly venerable cartoon character!

    I submit, given a fair adjudication, beyond reasonable doubt, listening to this for five (5) minutes will offend every reasonable sensibility. It may even make you resent James Taylor, were that even possible.

    In the final analysis, it will "get on your nerves," i.e. be most annoying.

    Respecfully, I request reconsideration by the chair.

    Here's one that my son and I have almost destroyed car radios over as all of our combined 20 fingers collide in the necessary attempt to change the station as soon as possible if it happens to come on the air:

    Yeccch!!!

    BTW, I appreciate the "MacArthur Park" mention, especially those particular lyrics from it. (Actually, anything written by Jimmy Webb is worthy of this thread...) Dennis, you've done the board a huge favor because I might have posted it... :) "Bette Davis Eyes:" Yesss! And "I'm Too Sexy..." And "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight," and "Winchester Cathedral," and all those others...

    Thank you, everyone, for this most impressive Compendium of Aural Bilge (CAB)...

    :ditto:

    I hate songs about songs. I'd rather hear songs.

    OTOH I disagree about "Bette Davis Eyes". I think it's awesome!

    YES!!! :applause:

    This is one of the most putrid, stupid things that ever made it onto vinyl.

    My hat is off to you for posting it! Congratulations!!!!

    (It could go head-to-head with "A Horse With No Name." :judge: :lol: :lol: But only if it happened to be sung by Tiny Tim... BTW, that late, great "crooner" has had no mention here - I wonder why...? :confused: Just proves the point: there've been just too many bad songs.)

    Anything "techno." Seems there was a lot of that in the 80s.

    Sorry, but I must declare this entire exercise a farce.

    How is it that in a thread about the most annoying/worst songs ever, there is a complete and utter dearth of Neil Diamond entries? For this survey to have any credibility at all, there must be at least a few of his 'works'.

    Please, people.

    Hmmm: I like Neil Diamond :um:

    Thanks SO MUCH, Tom! :rofl: Wow: you found what must have been one of Tim's first performances on Laugh-In!!!! As you know, he later became a fixture on "The Tonight Show" and even married Miss Vicky on it. :lol:

    Maybe I'll look for that video -- nah... :barfy:

    I kind of like Neil Diamond, too, but he has added to the full body of wretched pop songs:

    [video=youtube;On1TjeRWqXo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On1TjeRWqXo[/video]

    And doing this song on stage in his sixties: more than a little creepy:

    [video=youtube;57q3kq4FP2o]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57q3kq4FP2o[/video].

    He comes off like Humbert Humbert with an orchestra behind him -- yikes! Someone close to Diamond should tell him that the song was poignant when he was a young man, but now, it's enough to give even his long-time fans the willies... :lol: :p

    Neil Diamond does postmillennialism???

    * "And I think it's gonna be all right
    Yeah, the worst is over now
    The mornin' sun is shinin'
    Like a red rubber ball"

    Are you ready for more?

    * "And no one heard at all, not even the chair." --"I Am ...I Said," --Neil Diamond

    * "Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy" -- "Bawitdaba," Kid Rock

    * "New York to East California, there's a new wave comin', I warn ya." --"Kids in America," Kim Wilde

    * "Having my baby, what a lovely way of saying how much you love me..." --"Havin' My Baby," Paul Anka

    * "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
    I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy." (Bob Marley)

    * "He said all men are sailors then until the sea shall free them" (Neil Diamond)

    * “So come on, ha, come on, ha, come on is such a joy, come on is such a joy, come on and make it easy, come on and make it easy, take it easy, take it easy, everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey.” (The Beatles)

    * "Songs you sang to me, sounds you brang to me." (Neil Diamond, "Play Me")

    * "Some people call me the space cowboy.
    Yeah! Some call me the gangster of love.
    Some people call me Maurice,
    'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love." (Steve Miller)
    "Since my phone still ain't ringing, I assume it still ain't you."

    * "Since my phone still ain't ringing, I assume it still ain't you." (Randy Travis)

    * Drop kick me, J**** through the goal posts of life
    End over end, neither left nor to right
    Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights
    Drop kick me, J**** through the goal posts of life (Bobby Bare)

    * "Yummy, yummy, yummy,
    I've got love in my tummy
    And I feel like loving you." (Ohio Express)

    * I wanted to cite some rap lyrics, but one poster got there first and besides this IS the Puritan Board:

    Rap Lyrics:

    You %(&(*&)#$
    My *%#&%@* girlfriend axed me to *@%&*@*
    Then I #*^%*^ my dog and my cat
    They said [email protected]%&^$!

    What is the title of this song? Which album can it be found?
     
  28. MrMerlin777

    MrMerlin777 Puritan Board Post-Graduate

    Written by John Lennon, it's called "Everybody's got somthing to hide 'cept for me and my monkey." I think it's on the White Album.

    It's from the White Album. I think it's called "Me & My Monkey" or something inspiring like that.

    Yeah, I went to YouTube and listened to it. I had the White Album and barely remember the song. After listening to it I know why!

    Didn't care much for Yoko Ono, don't you know?
