Bad Song Lyrics


Downtown Bang!

Recommended Posts

Almost anything from any song the Carpenters or THe Captain and Tenille ever did. To wit: Muskrat Love.  For all the good performers back in the daze, wtf were peeple thinking?

I should point out that "Muskrat Love" was first written and recorded by "America" before it was hijacked by the Captain and his wife.

The psychodelic haze that caused some of these songs must have been just amazing...

" hotel California" always hated that song

I once picked up a hitchhiker and he told me that was his favorite song so I made him get out and left him on the side of the road

I offer up:

"I feel a hunger. Its a hunger"

Eddie Money - Take Me Home Tonight

Man, that must really bother you. I've heard that song a thousand times and never gave it a second thought.

Love the "Money Man".

Or it could just be for fun.

The "Money Man" was much better before he got sober.

"Young, black and famous/With money hangin' out the anus" ("Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" by Puff Daddy and Mase)

And we have the winner. I can't stop laughing.

Seriously?  Someone ostensibly put that down on paper?

I'd like to dope slap Terry Jacks.

   Goodbye, Michelle, my little one,

   You gave me love and helped me find the sun,

   And every time that I was down

   You would always come around

   And get my feet back on the ground;

   Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die

   When all the birds are singing in the sky,

   Now that the spring is in the air,

   With the flowers everywhere,

   I wish that we could both be there!

We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun

But the wine and the song like the seasons have all gone

We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun

But the wine and the song like the seasons have all gone

I’ll second the “anything by Taylor Swift” comment……..I get the whole “she’s young and writes her own stuff” angle.  But she isn’t getting younger and she should stop writing about the 2 years she spent in high school……my God she’s written a song about dating everyone except Provines and McFeeley…….maybe that is her next album.

Seems like every song is “….you were this, I was that, you are now this and I am now that….” Over and over again.  I have quickly changed the channel on her for the past 6 months just to stop the madness.  It makes me feel better…..

Rant over……

re America: You mean "There were plants and birds and rocks and things" doesn't speak to your soul?

Indeed. Don't forget about those frightening "alligator lizards in the aiirrrrrrrrrr, in the airrrrrrrrrrrrr".

Pretty much any lyrics by Jim Morrison. There isn't enough acid on Earth for that nonsense, although I have always kind of liked the term "fragile eggshell mind".

X2. WTF was that. When I was a kid I remember that gem, Billie don't be a hero, and The Night Chicago Died all in about the same year. Dark days indeed.

What, Peace Frog doesn't make sense to you?   :D

I remember when we covered that tune in college and I saw the lyrics.....I was sitting there going "wtf is this about"......

You have to really load up because he is only one of the many who recorded Jacques Brel's song. My first encounter with the song (different lyrics, same theme of wifely infidelity) was by the Kingston Trio in 1963...a lot less wimpy and up tempo version.

Oh Lord.  I'm ashamed to say that I remember Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods (Is that correct?)

And who in Creation was responsible for "Little Willy" in about that same time frame?  That one irritated me even as a pre-teen.

"Little Willy Willy won't (...thump thump) go home!"  

Good grief.

Springsteen
