    Dennis, in line with your sage posting of stupid lyrics, I wanted to add this timeless Kenny Rogers lyric, just for its sheer boneheadedness... I wouldn't post the video that I found of it because in it, he's his "post-botched plastic surgery self," not the gracefully aging, rather handsome guy that he was before he went under the knife.

    Anyway, the offending lyric is in "Through the Years" and if you recall, it goes like this:

    "I can't remember when you weren't there, when I didn't care, for anyone but you..."

    WHAT?! Takes me on a trip back through my logics course just to decipher the triple negative here... He can't remember when he didn't care for "anyone" ("everyone?") except the woman he's singing to... What if he said, "I can't remember when I cared for anyone but you?" That would be okay...

    BTW, I am "shocked, shocked" (a la Claude Rains in "Casablanca," and the gambling at Rick's Cafe Americaine) that this timeless classic hasn't made this thread yet:

    If it has, and if I've just overlooked it, mea culpa... Seems to me that "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen belongs on any/every list of annoying songs! :D

    Yoko is most annoying...

    I had the Double Fantasy album years ago and all in all it was ok, if one skipped every other track. The songs were arranged with a song sung by John then a song sung by Yoko, John then Yoko etc....

    After the breakup of the Beatles I didn't pay much attention to their individual careers. At least I didn't buy anything of their individual works. My life was heading in a different direction.

    Of course!!!! The Pina Colada Song richly belongs here! "If you have half a brain..." Rupert Holmes should be so blessed... :lol:

    Here's another one of which I would like to detonate every existing copy on the face of the earth:

    [video=youtube;YAxxXPDyY4I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAxxXPDyY4I[/video]

    It reminds me of having to go to school with my second-oldest brother, who loved this song... One day, it came on the radio for about the 150th time that week and I'd had enough of it, so I said, "We are not listening to that slop again." Whereupon, as we were stopped at a traffic light, my brother leaped out of car, said something "pithy" to me and walked the last couple of miles to school. Whatever. :p :duh:

    "Precious and Few:" Kaboom!

    DING DING DING We have a winner!
    Hate that song with a passion. That and Jimmy Buffet's margaritaville. As far as I'm concerned Rupert can take his half of a brain and give it to Jimmy and they can both find their long lost shaker of salt and .... nah!

    Moderating...
    Hey, I'm glad it works! Let's don't strain the pore thing, gents and ladies! These songs are ghastly, it's true, but this IS the Puritan Board.
    Moderation done, carry on!

    I'm on a school computer, so I don't have sound and cannot look up YouTube video. Anyone remember from about six or so years ago, those Quizno's commercials with the singing/screaming annimated guys? If I remember correctly, weren't they made of potatos? If you can find it, please post it.

    Dubious Great Lakes Geography by Gordon Lightfoot
    from "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
    "Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
    In the rooms of her ice-water mansion.
    Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams,
    The islands and bays are for sportsmen.
    And farther below Lake Ontario
    Takes in what Lake Erie can send her."


    "Fly Away" by Lenny Kravitz
    Written by Lenny Kravitz
    Dr. Seuss has nothing on this guy.

    "I wish that I could fly
    Into the sky
    So very high
    Just like a dragonfly

    I'd fly above the trees
    Over the seas
    In all degrees
    To anywhere I please

    Oh I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Oh I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Let's go and see the stars
    The milky way or even Mars
    Where it could just be ours

    Let's fade into the sun
    Let your spirit fly
    Where we are one
    Just for a little fun
    Oh oh oh yeah !

    [repeat 437 times]
    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah"


    Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know?
    "And fiery demons all dance when you walk through that door
    Don't say you're easy on me
    You're about as easy as a nuclear war"


    Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's "classic" love song
    "When you're buried in disguise
    By the dark glass on your eyes
    Though your flesh has crystallized;
    Still...you turn me on.
    Every day a little sadder,
    A little madder,
    Someone get me a ladder."


    From Richard Harris' MacArthur Park LP
    "As we followed in the dance,
    Between the parted pages and were pressed,
    In love's hot, fevered iron,
    Like a striped pair of pants."


    Don't you just like the romance in the last word of the Turles' Elenore?
    "Your looks intoxicate me,
    Even though your folks hate me,
    There's no one like you Elenore really,
    Elenore gee I think you're swell,
    And you really do me well,
    You're my pride and joy etcetera."

    In another thread, our beloved Bawb laments that he cannot visit this thread for fear of having an awful song stuck in his head. :lol: Well, in that vein of thought I submit this entry. This song was stuck in my head for weeks after my wife and daughter forced me to endure this movie in their presence.

    Listen at your own risk. :p

    Only thing worse than "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and its mistaken geographical reference is having to listen to a 6-year-old boy (who'd memorized every line of it, although he was a baby when the song came out) sing it over and over and over again... :sing:

    That little fella was my son; he was fascinated by geography in those days but hey - what am I saying? Those were the good old days!!! :) :( :bouncy: ("Dragons live forever, but not so little boys..." Oops: I've just alluded to yet another horrible song: "Puff the Magic Dragon." :lol: )
