Well folks, here's the next set of groups for our Worst Song Ever preliminary.  Remember, you are picking two out of the five to automatically advance and the top vote getter of the non-winners will be our 65th team for our play-in matchup.  Just have to give a quick shoutout to the NCAA doing the sane, logical, and smart thing of only expanding to 68 teams instead of 96.  Those of you who follow me regularly know where I stood on that issue, and if not, you can search back through my recent blog entries as I identified just how stupid 96 teams would be as a grab for the money.  But, enough NCAA basketball, on to really bad songs which may cause the following (courtesy of community member iamyo who was running this the first time) and don't forget Prelim 1 is still open for one more week http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/

U Can't Touch This-
M.C. Hammer (that's word)
I'm Henry VIII, I Am- Herman's Hermits (the Liz Taylor song in reverse)
The Girl Is Mine- Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson (funny, you'd think Jacko would do The Boy Is Mine, but Brandy and Monica did instead)

Electric Slide- Marcia Griffiths (boogie oogie oogie)

Laffy Taffy- D4L
In The Year 2525- Zager & Evans
MacArthur Park- Professor Dumbledore, er, Richard Harris (Someone left my post out, in the rain.  And   I   don't think I'll retype it.  Cause it took so long to hype it.  And I'll never find that metaphor again.  Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Group 11-

Tom's Diner-
Suzanne Vega (shoutout to D2Moo for catching this song we missed first go-round.  I know I'd be pissed if the guy at the counter only filled my cup half way up.  Do do do do, do do do do)
Whoomp, There It Is- Tag Team (back again)
Seasons In The Sun- Terry Jacks (I had neither joy nor fun listening to this)

Group 12-

She Blinded Me With Science-
Thomas Dolby
Safety Dance- Men Without Hats
Summer Girls- LFO (I'll have to go back through the thread to thank the community member who nominated this classic we missed the first time.  the seeker caught this one)

Crocodile Rock- Elton John (like a lot of Elton's music [and yes, I like women] but this song is flat out annoying)

Group 13-

I Am Woman-
Helen Reddy (hear me snore)
Say- John Mayer (what I want to say is this song is a huge pile of dung)
I Get Knocked Down- Chumbawumba (but, I get up again.  No, you're never gonna keep ME down)
(Hit Me) Baby One More Time- Britney Spears (my bleeding ears are killing me)  Knew something looked wrong the first time.  That's what I get for copying from the thread.  Don't worry, votes will still count.
Superbowl Shuffle- 1985 Chicago Bears

Group 14-

Don't Worry Be Happy-
Bobby McFerrin (this song actually doesn't bother me, although I can see why it grates on a lot of people)
Run Joey Run- David Geddes
I Touch Myself- The Divinyls
Undercover Angel- Alan O'Day

Group 15-

Paradise By The Dashboard Light-
Meatloaf
You're Beautiful- James Blunt
Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond (bah bah bah bah)

Group 16-

Cheeseburger In Paradise-
Jimmy Buffet
Ticks- Brad Paisley (not the worst country song of all time, but one of the worst lines ever)
Country Boys And Girls- Tim McGraw
Tiptoe Through The Tulips- Tiny Tim
Morning Train- Sheena Easton (does anybody really want to come home after the drag of working a 9-5 job to find Sheena Easton waiting for them?)

Group 9 - Electric SLide - close one.  Apparently the only thing I hate more than the Culture Club is homogenized, insipant wedding reception dance music.

Group 10 - No Trash In My Trailor - because I hate pop country

Group 11 - Whoomp! There it it - Because I hate lame hip-hop almost as much as pop country.

Group 12 - CrocRock - This song was made for my kids who find it "quirky" rather than crappy.
 
Group 13 - Hit Me Baby One More Time - Boy would I ever...!  NO MORE SKAGGY BRITNEY!

Group 14 - Don't Worry Be Happy - just because it's sooooooooo overplayed.

Group 15 - Paradise By the Dash Board Light - THEE ultimate tarilor park anthem.  nuf ced.

Group 16 - Ticks - back to that pop country thing again.

Good luck with the list!


Looks like somebody didn't read the rules that said we needed to pick TWO songs from each list.....

Worst Song Ever Prelim 2 Groups 9-16

Frist, for the younger set.  Sheena Easton was indeed en fuego.  She was (and still may be for her age now) extremely hot.  Also well remembered for a song Prince wrote for her in the mid 80's called Sugar Walls.  Song is highly suggestive and was known to eliminate the need for ED medication.  Enough said.

Okay, okay.  For all of you getting on me about Sheena Easton, point taken.  I was more referring to her singing and having to deal with that constantly as we all know women love to talk.  If I could bypass that quality, Britney would be pretty darn attractive, too, and yet this won't be the only song of hers in this competition.

Have to find funny the interesting dichotomy here.  One song blandly empowers females, the other stupidly sets back women years.  Bad is bad either way.
Gotta love Moo for looking at things in ways some of the rest of us wouldn't think of.


You're Beautiful- James Blunt.  Just became the new anthem for stalkers everywhere.Stupid CBS with the broken underline button.  Anyways, replacing "Every Breath You Take," by the Police?  You would not believe how many idiots played this song at their weddings back in the day.

Worst Song Ever Prelim 2 Groups 9-16

Okay, here we go with some seriously horrible tunes.

Frist, for the younger set.  Sheena Easton was indeed en fuego.  She was (and still may be for her age now) extremely hot.  Also well remembered for a song Prince wrote for her in the mid 80's called Sugar Walls.  Song is highly suggestive and was known to eliminate the need for ED medication.  Enough said.

Group 9-

U Can't Touch This-
M.C. Hammer (that's word).  Sampled Rick James Super Freak.  Almost hate to use this one but...it has not stood up to the test of time.

I'm Henry VIII, I Am- Herman's Hermits (the Liz Taylor song in reverse).  Innane tune yet just catchy enough to drive you to the brink.



Group 10-


No Trash In My Trailer- Colt Ford (hot girls, putrid song).  Agreed......

MacArthur Park- Professor Dumbledore, er, Richard Harris (Someone left my post out, in the rain.  And   I   don't think I'll retype it.  Cause it took so long to hype it.  And I'll never find that metaphor again.  Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Hey, it was the 60's and this tune should prove once and for all why LSD should never be used by anyone writing a song.

Group 11-

Tom's Diner-
Suzanne Vega (shoutout to D2Moo for catching this song we missed first go-round.  I know I'd be pissed if the guy at the counter only filled my cup half way up.  Do do do do, do do do do)  Great, just thinking about this tune means I'll be do do doing today sometime.

Seasons In The Sun- Terry Jacks (I had neither joy nor fun listening to this).  Somewhere, I hope Terry Jacks has a job cleaning up vomit.

Group 12-


Summer Girls- LFO (I'll have to go back through the thread to thank the community member who nominated this classic we missed the first time.  the seeker caught this one)  Yes, it is indeed bad.  Not good bad, just stinky bad.

My Sharona- The Knack.  When rock stations used to do disco destruction promotions, this tune used to get thrown in just to show the DJ were fair and impartial.  Should have been the first song destroyed.  The ACLU lobbied to ban this tune.

Group 13-

I Am Woman-
Helen Reddy (hear me snore)

(Hit Me) Baby One More Time- Britney Spears (my bleeding ears are killing me)  Knew something looked wrong the first time.  That's what I get for copying from the thread.  Don't worry, votes will still count.

Have to find funny the interesting dichotomy here.  One song blandly empowers females, the other stupidly sets back women years.  Bad is bad either way.


Group 14-


Undercover Angel- Alan O'Day.  No midnight fanatasies here other than never hearing the tune again.

You Light Up My Life- Debbie Boone (this song's a bore.  Like some kind of chore.  Can't get it out of my head.  Doo doo doo doo)  the fact this song was a major hit and made into a movie with the immortal Didi Conn proves that taste and good judgement were very much in short supply in the 70's.

Group 15-


You're Beautiful- James Blunt.  Just became the new anthem for stalkers everywhere.

The Night Chicago Died- Paper Lace.  My ears died when I heard this.  The City of Chicago still has a contract with the mob to take these guys out.

Group 16-

Ticks- Brad Paisley (not the worst country song of all time, but one of the worst lines ever).  Ticks?  How about a tune called Fleas?  Gnats?  Mosquitoes?

Tiptoe Through The Tulips- Tiny Tim.  Don't know what was worse, TT's looks or his songs?

Worst Song Ever Prelim 2 Groups 9-16

Group 9: I can't pick anyone here.  I also motion to remove the Marcia Griffiths song on account of the fact she was affiliated with Bob Marley.

Group 10: Boogie Oogie Oogie is an okay song....get on up, on the floo-ooor, we're gonna boogie oogie oogie til we just can't boogie no mooooooooore.... boogie no moooooore.

let's skip down to group 13.  The Chubwub song is f'ing horrible.  I dated a girl when that song was out who loved it passionately.  Since based on that it is clear she is a retard, I feel really bad about all the times I plugged her.

Group 15: These words, my nomination.  A completely mockery of musical integrity.  Whoever green lighted that ish should be shot.  If it's not the worst song ever it's at least in the discussion.  I want to bang my head against the wall everytime I hear it.

Group 16: Buc, I told you I sat the guys at work down and told them I would go postal if the Country boys/girls song came on again, and it hasn't since, bc they knew I wasn't playing around.

Cheeseburger in Paradise is a moronic song, a slap in the face to anyone with the slightest hint of musicianship.

"Does anybody really want to come home to Sheena Easton?"

Uhhhh, f*** yeah.  How old are you?  Sheena Easton is sexy as hell.
