Actually I think Rupert Holmes' version of "Escape" is the worst song ever performed. Followed closely by "Don't want to miss a thing".

"I been waiting" and " I wanna know what love is" by Foreigner tie for worst ever written.

God, you guys are old.

No song in the history of pop music is as godawful as My Humps.

However, it did lead to Alanis Morisette's hilariously deadpan cover, which is so good I forgive her for every mean thing I ever thought about her...

Come on Steve, Escape, the Pina Colada song is a classic of shmaltzy glory, pop excellence. Him is even better. You anarchists are all the same.

Actually, I wanna Know What Love Is always gets these great reviews from critics. You have to admit, that choir at the end is nice.

My Humps, my dirty lady lumps.

No, Afternoon Delight, by the Starland Vocal Band is the worst piece of trash ever. If I ever hear that chorus again I will take lives.

So copywrite infringement is ok as long as it's crap?

Yes. Yes it is.
In fact, it's widely encouraged.


What, no mention of Silver Convention's marvelous "Get Up and Boogie"?

Sorry gentlemen, I have to say that "We Built This City" by Starship, has to be the worst song ever. What was Grace Slick thinking?!??
Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristrocratic forms. No gov't in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, gov't tends more and mroe to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class

Full attribution (blame) has been given in every case.

What's that Peter Frampton song they keep playing in the supermarkets? That just makes me want to rupture my ear drums with chop sticks.

Hey, young bucks should leave us elderly to die in peace when the music fades.

And yes, Stephanie Miller played a few excerpts of Alanis' cover on Stephanie's morning show -- the song's patently hysterical and beautiful at the same time.

(I tried to get Cris to cover it and came close to getting a frying pan upside the head for even suggesting it out loud.)

Steve,
I think what David Pareis was hinting at was that posting complete copyrighted lyrics in these spaces is wrong and illegal. At the very least, posting complete copyright song lyrics on THIS site is not very bright as it opens up Ellison to various accusations that have been gone over on these pages before.
