What can I say? The song grates on me. But I can appreciate that it has a sort of kitschy appeal, and that it has been well parodied and used to comic effect over the years. There have been a few songs listed here that I wouldn't have considered among the worst, but I will agree that Leader of the Pack probably does not belong. Still, there should be some representation of this manipulative musical subgenre. As a friendly amendment, I would replace #56 with another crash song, one nearly as melodramatic, but without a scrap of fun in it - The Last Kiss, by J. Frank Wilson. I almost nominated Teen Angel, particularly since it seems to be the beginning of that musical fad, but The Last Kiss is far worse. Not only is his high-school sweetheart dead, but he is apparently now just putting in time until he can join her, while pinning responsibility for the tragedy on "The Lord." Nowhere near as depressing as Seasons in the Sun (but then what pop song is?), but definitely an overwrought downer of a tune. And it can't be considered a relic of its time, because Pearl Jam covered it only a few years ago.
Karma for Leader of the Laundromat. I was thinking of that when I made the earlier post.  BounceGiggle
I went looking for MARK DINNING's "Teen Angel" as soon as I saw your response about the tragic crash songs...  "...they buried you today..."  Ugh!!  (Love it.) I also like "The Last Kiss"  Lookingup "...the painful scream that I heard last..."  Yer right, it's not "the Lord" but his lousy driving that cost him his "baby." Thumbup

I'm shocked to see some of my favorite songs on the list, but everyone has a different taste in what songs they like so I have no problem with it.

Here is mine Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp
http://www.youtube.com/v/QT9tpKXFd8A&hl=en&fs=1

Every time I hear this song I just want to ram one of my pocket knives in my ears to take my hearing away.

EDIT: Forgot the YT way of doing things, silly me.

Wanted to include a dance tune from the late 80s/early 90s, but it's hard to choose. They were more about having a beat and a hook than about being a good song. But some were worse than others, and I think I've found a standout. Ironically, this video makes me kind of nostalgic for the days when my buddies and I would hit the nightclubs to drink, ogle women and gripe about the crappy dance music. Those were the days. Cheers

Here it is... Pump Up the Jam, by Technotronic.

Sad lyrics and a light, bouncy tune. Gotta love it. Cheers

The first couple of verses are almost hypnotic. Sort of a blandly pleasant sound. He kind of bounces along endlessly, with virtually no variation in tone or cadence. I zoned out for a while until he changed it up a little.

I never understood why anyone thought that was funny, except perhaps in an ironic sense.  Question


Thinking back to treacly, depressing songs, I have to mention The Last Game of the Season. This song tells a story that is just beyond belief.  It's got football, family values, personal tragedy, and even a reference to the afterlife. It's sad, then sadder, then sadder still, then it's uplifting (but sad), and all the while it's totally pushing your buttons. Give it a new arrangement, it could be on the country charts today.

For me, it is a bad song, but fascinating in its way.

Get off the treacle, people--your teeth will thank you for it!!   TeddyR

As much as I enjoy the song, it is admittedly terrible:

Nancy Sinatra--"These Boots Are Made for Walkin'"

         
Small | Large



I went looking for a song called "Swamp Girl" that is probably the only '60s pop song about suicide. It's another song I greatly enjoy; it sounds very much like a b-movie setup. The only You Tube version I could find was by Charles Manson, and so I decided to just mention the song rather than link to it; there are much better versions, and I really don't much want to link to anything Manson.
