Life as I know it… plus commentary

worst song ever

with 6 comments

As you can see by the side bar. Kyle has once again assumed his role as Arbiter of Time and Space and declared that Rock Lobster is the worst song ever made.  And one can deduce that he thinks Whip It is a close second.

While I esteem the opinion of my colleague greatly, he’s wrong in this instant.  The worst song ever is “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmmm” by the Crash Test Dummies.

  1. Whip It, a close second? That’s the gnarliest thing I’ve ever heard.

    Whip It owns.

  2. To me, anytime you can take a one syllable word and make it two….well…. genius.

    Cuh-rack that whip! (infectious bass line)

  3. I once heard a Charlie Hall Rendition of Beethoven’s “Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee (9th symphony, words by Henry van Dyke)” that began with the words “you are spinning, and you are singing zealous love over all your children,” that’s just silly. To further your discussion, I will add “Achy Breaky Heart,” “Everybody Have Fun Tonight (which I am sure THE EXCHANGE covered and did a better job than Wang Chung), and Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend.” Fun post Arnold.

  4. I will add Gerardo “Rico Suave” and New Kids on The Block’s “Hangin Tough”

    It’s a list of the 50 Worst Songs Ever!

    Dustin was right on with the #2 and #3 songs. It had Starship “We Built This City” as #1.

  5. Sorry, Arnold, I need to disagree with you on your #1 – MMMMMM (let CTD spell it how they want to) is definitely not one of those songs that make me cringe whenever I hear it, or even listen because it’s so bad. That title proudly belongs to that song by a man who should have left his name to something 50s moms used to make for dinner – Meatloaf. “I Would Do Anything for Love” is good in a Dr. Pepper commercial that I saw a couple of times, but that’s about it.

    A close second would be any song ever written and/or sung by Michael Bolton.

  6. I have to agree with Dustin. Probably the worst song is that “everybody have fun toniiiight” song. However, if The Exchange covered it and George played the drums with the ends of his bathrobe instead of sticks and if Arnold rocked out that A.C. Slater semi-mullet on the chorus, then my opinion of that song would change considerably. What does “everybody wang chung tonight” even mean anyway?!
