Oh, man.  I've uncovered two really rancid ones.   I might win this thread.

I remember hearing an astonishingly suck-ass cover of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side."   A French pop version.     

Now I've remembered it.   It's Vanessa Paradis' version.    Anyone here heard that?

There's also a horrible loungy version of the same song on iTunes, by Arcoiris.     Hatred

LOL, you just have to read that and you KNOW it's hilarious.

I thought that one was alright, really.

I tell you what you guys are forgetting. Punk covers. Some are fun but there's a hell of a lot of "omg I can sing it really fast and out of tune and throw swearwords in there and play some power chords thats so cool" in there.

I heard this one punk cover of Ben E. King's incredible "Stand By Me". What a load of tripe. They even changed it to say "Just as long as you f**king stand by me".

Then there's the Cliff Richard cover of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and "Wonderful World" mixed into one song. I think it made me lactose intolerant. Give me Israel Kamawiwawo'ole's acoustic reggae styled cover instead, please.

I may be wrong, but I don't think anyone has mentioned "These Boots Are Made For Walking" the Jessica Simpson version.

That is, unless you have all become pod people and think that it's a "Good" song and doesn't deserve to be on that list...

Ooooh, yes, I gave you a karma point for that one.  I wish she'd just fall off the face of the earth and take her stupid faces with her.

How about the worst cover of a classic film score?

Proving once and for all the Bass Clarinet is the...

Lamest. Instrument. Ever.


                LAME!















Well - except for maybe the Alto Clarinet.

Sigh.......I played that thing in high school.  And the even lamer contrabass too, even though it was literally as tall as I am (I'm pretty short.)  And yes, those are easily the lamest instruments ever.

Can I nominate the Dixie Chicks' cover of Fleetwood Mac's Landslide?  Not because of their politics, that's their business, but because it was obvious they'd never actually heard the song before someone convinced them to butcher it.

Actually some of my best friends play bass clarinet. I'm a bassoonist, so when I play with a concert band or a wind ensemble I'm almost always sitting next to the bass clarinets.

Bassoon: now THAT'S a mega-cool instrument!  BounceGiggle

I've also played contrabass clarinet before. Very cool ~ 'cause when you play the lowest notes you can feel the bones in your head vibrate!  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
