Thursday music

I spent some time yesterday trying to think of the worst song that's ever reached into the top 40. It's more difficult than one would assume to pick just one. I mean there's so many just terrible songs that were easily consumed by the young masses. Just looking back at my high school years where Snow, Color Me Badd, and Gerrado ruled the charts.

I just aged myself something fierce didn't I?

Most people my age and younger seem to forget music was actually produced before 1997 and crap like The Fine Young Cannibals once permeated the airwaves. When thinking about bad music, even going back as far as 1937, I found it almost impossible to narrow down which exactly was the worst. Given the criteria, of which there is little, I find there were too many to choose from. There's never a shortage of horrible tunes and untalented musicians (I'm looking at you Michael Bolton).

Still I'll take a stab and bring you one of the worst songs that annoyed me to no end. Today folks I bring you the 2 Live Crew:



"I want to do a record with Monica Lewinsky." - Luther Campbell

Remember Michael Bolton's first album, before he got all easy listening (ain't nothing easy about listening to Michael Bolton) when he was into that hair glam metal, but just really really lame hair glam metal. God, that was some awful stuff.

P.S.S. I was going to embed it but I guess blogger doesn't like it.

Big Bass is recommended on this one however.
