I heard it agine today.
That song....
In case you young types don't know about it...its about a guy, singin' about a horse, who gets loose from his barn ..."Busted down his stall.."actualy, and runs off into a major blizzard.
and...the singer's wife runs off into the storm after him! "She was calling, Wiiild-fire, she was callin..."

The end of the song, he tells you, his wife and the horse are comming back for him....and they they will all be rideing off into the night....
And every time i hear it , i think  CALL AN EXORCIST, YA MORON!

Its ain't romantic to me!
Stupid horse, stupid wife, stupid suicidal singer!
Sooo....any one else have a hate on for a song...cause the lyrics tell a tale of realy morons people, with access to a songwriter?

Did i mention that i hate this song? Good.

I have the same problem with Marty Robbin's "El Paso." If the guy is stupid enough to get himself shot for a woman he barely knows, fine. But he's dead. QUIT SINGING, YOU ZOMBIE COWBOY FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE!!!!!

Any song in which the same ten or twelve words are repeated over and over and over and over again.  There are literally thousands of offenders, but to my way of thinking it doesn't get any worse than the one that goes:

"Don't break my heart
my achey breaky heart
If you break my heart
my achey breaky heart..."

I don't believe in capital punishment, but they should chain the guy who wrote that song to an old Sherman tank and throw it into the deep end of the ocean.

I do not know the the name of it..but over and over it says "All that she wants is another baby..all that she wants is another baby." over and over again.. That is one annoying song.

Sole Survivor by Asia.  Great song, but if you actually bother to listen to the lyrics, they're so stupid.

When I ran from the hounds of hell
Twist my foot, I nearly fell
I was lucky I was alive
One look back I could have died

I was the sole survivor
Sole survivor
Sole survivor
Solitary fighter

When I saw it I was amazed
One time glory right in my gaze
I saw the sorrow, I saw the joy
Right in the darkness none could destroy


And from the wreckage I will arise
Cast the ashes back in their eyes
See the fire, I will defend
Just keep on burning right to the end


I mean, does that mean a frickin' thing?

Hey, "Sole Survivor" makesmore sense than most of Jon Anderson's lyrics

As a recovering prog-rock fan I have to say, like anyone was listening to Asia for the lyrics.

I'm a fan of Marty Robbins (and lots of old country music) so I like "El Paso". Besides what wrong with singing a song from a dead person's point of view? Now if you want an awful song about a gunfighter try the Lorne Greene (that's right Ben Cartwright and Commander Adama) song about "Ringo". Spoken rather than sung, this was a big country and pop hit in the mid 60s apparently. I

t's about a man who nurses a wounded gunfighter back to health. They part way, the narrator becomes a sheriff, Ringo returns to a life of crime. They eventually meet, the narrator leaves his posse waiting, and confronts Ringo. Ringo shoots the gun from the narrator's hand, sparing his life and returning the good deed done him. He is then shot down by "a dozen guns", no one sheds a tear for Ringo. The legend spreads that the narrator outdrew Ringo, the narrator feels guilt and puts away his guns (but people think it was only the years passing that make him do it. And no one can explain the tarnished star above Ringo name on his grave.

Might make a good plot for a film, since it borrows some touches from "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". It's still an awful song.

"Achy Breaky Heart" was written by Don Van Tress, who used to live near where I'm from (he may still for all I know), Northwest Alabama. The local paper's annoying idiot entertainment editor/pathetic movie reviewer used to make a big deal out of this. Van Tress still turns up at conferences with songwriters and music industry professionals that they have locally (celebrating the music heritage of the area and the once mighty "Muscle Shoals Sound", old music fans will know what I'm talking about) I think Cyrus recorded some other songs of his, and Van Tress has played bass on many songs of his according to Google, but the guy is really a one hit wonder as a songwriter.

There's this song called "(Who put) the bomb", I think it's early sixties where it goes something like this:

Darling, bomp bah bah bomp, bah bomp bah bomp bomp
And my honey, rama lama ding dong forever
And when I say, dip da dip da dip da dip
You know I mean it from the bottom of my boogity boogity boogity shoo

There's even a spoken word part that sounds like this.

In that day and era, I guess it was almost a must to used these kind of lyrics. But looking back, it's kind of cheesy isn't it ?

Actually, that song, "Who Put the Bomp," by Barry Mann, is more or less satirizing the be-bop shu-bop style singing of the 50s. It's really quite funny, poking fun both at the music style and the teenyboppers naive enough to take it all seriously. I love that song.

Dave Barry has written a volume:  The Worst Rock and Roll Songs of All Time.  
Really, nothing I say here can add to that --
I lived through the era of 1970's top-40 radio, for God's sake -- not a day went by that you weren't treated to some of the foulest lyrics ever put to paper by man:
Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey".   "Sock it To Me" by some soul singers.  Motown was over over over by the '70's, the soul hits of that era were almost all horrid.
"Rubber Duckie" was a radio hit then.  For adults.  Really.  It was considered a "novelty song", whereas real novelty songs that were actually fun or funny didn't get played.  The Osmonds:  "Go Away Little Girl".  Actually, there were a number of cheery songs about paedophilia and suicide.
I'll be damned if I'll try to reproduce any lyrics here or elsewhere.  I haven't spent 30 years of heavy drinking for nothing . . .

Well, you could start with every song Staind and Linkin Park ever wrote.  I was having a discussion about this with a customer in the record store just today.  These damn teen-angst bands (all the members of which are usually in their 30's, for Chrissakes) keep writing the same damn album about how they're depressed because their parents don't understand them and their girlfriends broke up with them because they were whiny annoying emo dweebs who couldn't carry a note.

I heard the first 10 seconds of one of the songs off Otep's new record.  Now, I can't stand that band to begin with because their vocalist is awful, but this song started out with her not singing, not growling, but honest-to-Cthulhu WHINING the words, "I haaaaaaaate myyyyy liiiiiiiiiiife!"

If you feel it necessary to write an album about your parents and girls not understanding you and so your only solace is to cut your wrists sideways and write in your Livejournal, fine.  But please, once you've recorded it and gotten it out of your system, burn the mastertapes, pawn your guitar and recording equipment, and never ever ever think about music ever again.

If all these emo kids' lives are so damn unbearable, why don't they just grow some balls and do the deed so they can stop annoying me.

I've got nothing against those teenage angst bands, but personally I outgrew them a long time ago, and shudder when I look back at that part of my life and taste in music.

But my complaint here is about friggin' pop/R&B music!

No! I will no longer call it music! I've crapped out better songs after downing packets of laxatives than that b***hney Spears and Justin Timberleg! Argh!
(Actually for those interested it went something like *squelch* "Oh dear god!" *long splashing noise followed by heavy breathing*)

Maybe its my lack of respect for 'artists' who don't write their own music or at least make a decent cover of an existing song, but its really beyond a joke now.

When this crap first hit the radio, I thought "Okay, it’s like that reality TV crap, give it a month and people will realise how retarded it is and it will disappear." But nooooo! It got worse, and so did reality TV! Slowly they turned people into thigh-fat zombies who lie on couches until four AM watching Big Brother, hoping to catch a glimpse of the sagging breasts of that *ahem* hot '20' year old and then gasping with shock when they hear about a man caught down the road looking through some girl’s window and say “Those people are sick.”

Heyyy, now that I think about this, it sounds like a good pitch for a new B-movie, one where really bad music and reality TV turns people into zombies who crave low-budget porno!

Ugh! Teen angst bands. The local station I used to enjoy has developed a fondness for Simple Plan. Not only are the lyrics whiny, they're sung in the whiniest, snottiest voice I've ever heard.  Like 'Perfect', a song about a spoiled little suck b***hing at his dad. The whole thing is a load of complaining about how Dad will never be pleased and Dad doesn't understand, and meanwhile the little s**t is doing everything he's accusing his dad of doing - judging people and not seeing the other point of view. Only Dad is older and wiser, and probably right. Geez, I hate that song, and another of their's that has been getting a lot of play around here lately, 'Welcome to My Life'. Basically, that one is just a guy whining about how miserable his life is in general.

I also hate Avril Lavigne's 'Skater Boy'.  It's just such a b***hy, spiteful song at its core. And the whole story is so far-fetched and poorly thought out it's laughable.

This one I have hated since the first time I ever heard it.  If you bake a cake you should at least still have a recipe for it.   What did they do throw away their cookbook.
MacArthur Park

Written by: Jimmy Webb
Sung by: Richard Harris or Donna Summer, equally silly.

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!


There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why


MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!
Oh, no
No, no
Oh no!!



I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
