Barbara Ann was written by Fred Fassert for his sister, Barbara Ann Fassert. Their brother Chuck was a member of the Regents, a doo-wop group from the Bronx. The Regents recorded a demo of the song in 1958. It was released as a single in 1961, after the group had broken up, and reached #13 on the Hot 100. The Beach Boys' version included Dean Torrance of Jan & Dean and reached #2 in February 1966. It was 3:23 on the album Beach Boys Party but was cut to 2:05 for release as a single. Jan & Dean recorded the song in 1962 for their album Jan & Dean's Golden Hits:

Rhinestone Cowboy was used in a movie, perhaps with Robert Redford.

Burning Love is especially disturbing if you picture the fat Elvis when he sings "hunka hunka burning love".

Cheeseburger in Paradise is a silly song, but many of Buffet's are intentionally silly, so I don't mind it.

Feelings makes me want to put a gun to my head.

And now some more 80s songs that make me wanna wretch

Jennifer Warnes & Bill Medley "The Time Of My Life"

Might as well be a showtune. So cornball.

Milli Vanilli "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You"

Girl I'm gonna.. girl I'm gonna.. girl i'm gonna...

New Kids On The Block "Hangin' Tough"

A bunch of pussies going on about how rough they are? Please.

New Kids On The Block "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)"

This is more their speed. And it sucks royal taint.

Simply Red "If You Don't Know Me By Now"

If the BPM got any lower, it would be negative. I can feel my beard grow between each snare hit.

One of the mostest worstest songs of the 1980s is I Eat Cannibals by Total Cuelo, a British quintet. The lyrics are awful. The music is awful.
The singing is awful. The video is awful. The dancing is awful. And somehow the song managed to reach #66 on the Hot 100 in May 1983.

That's one of those "songs I know is bad, but I like it anyway". I remember being 12 years old thinking "She eats cannibals?? Why does she eat people who eat people??" Later I realized it's about being hungry for sex.

Mark Ian Hoyle (born 12 April 1987), better known by his online pseudonym LadBaby, is an English YouTuber, musician, and blogger. His content focuses on his experiences as a father and is usually filmed in collaboration with his wife, Roxanne. The couple have had the Christmas No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart every year from 2018 to 2022 with the novelty songs "We Built This City (on Sausage Rolls)", "I Love Sausage Rolls", "Don't Stop Me Eatin'", "Sausage Rolls for Everyone (featuring Elton John & Ed Sheeran)" and "Food Aid". This made them the first musical act in British history to secure five Christmas No. 1 hits, surpassing the record set by the Beatles, who had four Christmas No. 1 songs in 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1967.

Seems like the best place to drop this, as I can't stand any of the Doors' songs (as we all know).

Listening to an old Stern show from 9/5/2002. After Howard sings the chorus to "Light My Fire", this conversation happened:

Howard: How lame is that? 'Come on baby light my fire. Come on baby light my fire. Try to set the night on fire.'
Robin: There's a guy who couldn't think of anything else.
Howard: You bloated drug addict drunk.
Artie: If you think about it, that IS lame.
Howard: It is. I mean if I did that you guys would laugh me right out of here.
Robin: Everybody called him a 'poet'.


For once, I don't feel like the only one in the world who sees the band this way.

This just proves the old adage that Howard doesn't know anything about music, and Robin just agrees with Howard. That song has about 100 lines of lyrics, so implying that's the whole song is just dumb. Besides, it's the chorus; choruses often have repetition. Compare that to Mellencamp saying "small town", or a thousand other songs. Jeez.

All this proves is that (like you), Howard doesn't like The Doors. And I'm sure he's got some non-musically-related reason for not liking them. Howard used to like Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. But because of his political views, he suddenly decided the guy was a hack musician. Same with Lorde. When she came on the scene, he was amazed by her talent and her intelligence at such a young age. But then she cancelled an Israeli tour because of fighting there, and so Howard (and Robin) spent 2 entire shows trashing her music.

He's a big phony; he only likes people who like him. Reminds me of someone else (who will remain unnamed).
