Somebody is currently screwing up "Golden Brown"... if I were a Strangler I'd be reaching for my lawyers, or sending Jean-Jacques round to deliver a black-belt writ...

You mean in the rain?
I saw Blender magazine has declared Barbie Girl by Aqua the 33rd worst song ever. I do wonder what those 32 songs that are worse could be.

You want my smiley - 2cents?

Angels by Robbie Williams. Not because it's a bad song, but it is soooo overplayed.

All good nominations, my personal most hated song is 'life' out about..erm 1995? ish i cant remember the womans name who sang it but it had terrible lyrics , such as " i would hate to see a ghost, thats the sight that i'd fear most, i'd rather have a piece of toast". You have to laugh i spose, but at her, not with her. bless.

smiley - erm

Desiree? Yes, the media used to really take the yellow stuff out of her for her lazy rhyming - straight out of a rhyming dictionary.

"Angels by Robbie Williams. Not because it's a bad song, but it is soooo overplayed"

You want *my* smiley - 2cents? I think it's a bad song.

Fairground - Simply Red

Life - Argh! Can't remember who it's by. The one with the lyrics 'I don't want to see a ghost, rather have a piece of toast'. Dreadful, dreadful song.

And anything by Franz Ferdinand. Or the Feeling, annoying twee gits.

I'm just old enough to remember the appalling porcine puppets Pinky and Perky on TV.

These marionette pigs cheerfully slaughtered the current pop hits of the middle 1960's in excruciating high-pitched voices.

Even the four-year old me thought this was distinctly cheesey.. (this was cutting-edge TV in 1968, folks! AND they recorded LP's...)

I had a distinct deja-vu on encountering "Alvin and the Chipmunks" on TV in the nineties.. those bloody bloody rodents were an animated pop group with a human manager and also slaughtered whatever they tried to sing. Appallingly saccharine...

Then there is the truly blush worthy 'Birdie Song' which wasn't a song at all.

In its correct context - Bavarian oomphah music - the Birdie Song is just about mangeable as a product of fat sweaty unsubtle beer-swilling Germans.

Unfortunately, the boxheads exported it to Spanish holiday resorts as something to listen to while they expanded lebensraum around the swimming pool and annexed the sunloungers, and that gave it an "international" push...

If I may be so bold - I'm not sure that refering to Germans as 'boxheads' is in the spirit of Hootoo.
