What's the WORST song ever?

Don't know if you guys have had this thread on here recently....but I just heard "Jenny from the Block" by Jennifer Lopez on the radio. That has got to be the most assinine, annoying song ever. And now it's stuck in my head! I can't take it!

"Tropical Hot Dog Night" by Captain Beefheart is simultaneously the worst and greatest song of all time.

If you've never heard it, I highly recommend a listen.

I like Banana Phone! Kinda catchy, and I like the singing skunks--they're damn cute! Although I imagine it could become pretty aggravating. What's "Teen Angel"? Don't know that one!

TEEN ANGEL
First Verse
That fate-ful night the car was stalled
up-on the rail- road track
I pulled you out and we were safe
but you went run - ning back___

CHORUS
Teen An - gel, can you hear me
Teen An - gel can you see__ me
Are you some - where up a -bove
and am I still your own__true love

Second Verse
What was it you were look-ing for
that took your life that night
They said they found my high school ring
clutched in your fin -gers tight____

REPEAT CHORUS
Just sweet six - teen and now you're gone,
they've tak - en you a - way
I'll nev - er kiss your lips a - gain,
they bur - ied you to - day____

REPEAT CHORUSWords and Music by Jean Surrey & Red Surrey

Maybe Jinx will tell you how those singing badgers can wear you down.

Yeah, they are badgers I guess. The scary part is that I just listened to it it about 14 times.

That song makes much more sense when you find out it was originally a lullaby sung to her daughter, Maya Rudolph.

I wasn't around for "Teen Angel" so I'll nominate another Death-Rock classic, "Run Joey Run", in which the singer is going to be shot dead by the dad of the girl he knocked up.



Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married...just you wait and see.

She called me up, late last night, she said Joe, don't come over
My dad and I just had a fight, and he stormed out the door
I've never seen him act his this way, my God, hes going crazy
He says he's gonna make you pay, for what we've done, he's got a gun, so

Run Joey Run Joey Run
Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married...just you wait and see.

I got in my car and I drove like mad, till I reached Julie's place
She ran to me, with tear-filled eyes, and bruises on her face
All at once, I saw him there, sneaking up behind me, WATCH OUT!
Then Julie yelled, he's got a gun, and she stepped in front of me
Suddenly, a shot rang out, and I saw Julie falling
I ran to her, I held her close, when I looked down, my hands were red,
and heres the last words Julie said...

Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married.....aaahhh..ahhhh
ahhhh....ahhhhh

Run Joey run Joey run Joey run Joey run Joey run

"Muskrat Love" by the Captain and Tenielle.

This abomination haunted sorority houses throughout the late '70s.

If I ever hear it again I cannot be held responsible for my actions.

ANYTHING John Denver ever sang. "Rocky Mountain hype... Blah, blah, blah." "Thank God I'm a country boy." Thank God, he's gone!

Oh, yeah, Bruce. I was around for "teen angel," too.

Thanks a lot, Bruce. I've been singing BANANAPHONE all morning. And I get up early!


Plus, I can't help feeling that the line, "...it ain't no pony" is merely used as a gratuitous rhyming device for the line "...it's no balogney". It doesn't really add to the information about the BANANAPHONE.
