We all know many groovy tunes with cringe-worthy lyrics. Let's recall the best of the best of the best: Knee-slappingly bad lyrics in legendary works of musical art.
Tulley has pointed out to me that the first song, hell the first 60 seconds even, of Rumours, the best selling album of the best decade of music, contains the following:
"I know I got nothin' on you. I know there's nothin to do. When times go bad, I can't get enough... won't you lay me down in the tall grass and let me do my stuff? Do it! Bam-bam-bam-bam-bam, bam-bam-bam-bam-bam, bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam, doot-doodly doo"
"I Wanna Sex You Up" was the number-one best selling single in the UK in 1991. It has topped the charts in multiple countries and sold millions of copies. It's also one of the shittiest songs, despite stealing an awesome Brothers Johnson hook. I almost didn't throw it on here but man, for some reason, the guys couldn't come up with enough reasons to sex me up, because one of the lyrics is:
"Please be my wife, sugar, because all I want to do is: I wanna Sex You Up."
Buzzfly: I dont even know what you are talking about.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Mike Lenin: OMG, dude, you are totally a villain and are caught!

Buzzfly: You must be really bored
May 11, 2020 20:23:50 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Mike Lenin: boring people get bored
May 11, 2020 20:24:02 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: and definitely not sober

Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too
May 11, 2020 20:24:41 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you

Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
