Bad Song Bits

To make this a quiz, you might figure out who was guilty of these vocal missteps. You might also list a few of your (least) favorites in the comments. 1. Adultery romanticized  "Me and Mrs. Jones" 2. Neglectful husband hits on secretary "Take a Letter, Maria" 3. Man expects furniture to be sentient  "I Am, I Said" (No one heard, not even the chair!) 4. Man blames wrong body part  "Careless Whispers" (We bet is wasn't his feet that were guilty of cheating.) 5. Worst verb usage ever "Play Me"  ("Songs she brang to me"...Really?) Artists: 1. Billy Paul  www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWOTdt9Bovk 2. R.B. Greaves   www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9Y0x1jLkLg 3. Neil Diamond   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhEaHcQgyLs 4. George Michael  www.youtube.com/watch?v=izGwDsrQ1eQ 5. Neil again...He's got tons of hits, and then some that make you go "What???"  www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/neildiamond/playme.html

Worst Songs Ever--Weenie Songs

If I listen to anything in the car, it's an oldies station, and I have to admit that many of the songs of my era are--well, they're bad. Bad music, bad lyrics, bad sound, bad idea. I thought it might be interesting to ask readers of this blog to mention songs that are so bad they wish they never had to hear them again. Saturday Category: Weenie Songs (I stole this from another author who stole it from Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs .) These are songs that are so overly sugary emotional that they make you want to vomit. One of my least favorites: "You Light Up My Life," which, in addition to being schmaltzy, has the line "It can't be wrong when it feels so right." Really? Bet that's what every cheater in the world tells himself. I'll give different categories each day for the next week or so, so let us hear from you!
