CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF BAD SONG REDUX!!!!!

HE made the challenge a few days ago, and now I've reverted into a level of sociopathy adequate to this task.

Ground rules: The following songs have already been wielded (in much the same way as hazardous waste) as examples of the worst to offer in pop music, so please don't bother bringing them up in this post -we're looking for all new bad stuff:
Achy Breaky Heart
Ice Ice Baby
Show No Mercy
Barbie Girl
Having My Baby
Copacabana
Mandy
Daybreak
Karma Chameleon
Pico and Sepulveda
Anything by William Shatner
Macarena
Who Let the Dogs Out
Bad Blood
Muskrat Love
I Go to Rio
I Will Always Love You
My Way
Sometimes When We Touch
Lyin' Eyes
FUNKY TOWN
Ebony and Ivory
anything by Lionel Richie
Do Ya Think I’m Sexy

Otherwise, anythng goes. Bring on your worst >%^D>
And now, to get this little corner of perdition rolling . . .

Cool Places

This is pathetically easy...."Jeremia was a Bullfrog"; Three Dog Night.

"Seasons in the Sun"; Terry Jacks (Even though I must confess to a slightly wet eye when I first heard it)

"Sugar"; The Archies (The Monkeys were genuine compared to this "group".)

Anything Yoko Ono ever did.

I was driving home a couple of nights ago and could only pick up the local canned oldies station. I was treated to "Junior's Farm." There's a real gem for you.

While not refering to a bad song as much as a bad genre of music, here's a little gem from Fed boy(http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/article/federline%20album%20flops_1013177):

"KEVIN FEDERLINE has been served more bad news as he braces himself for a divorce and custody battle with BRITNEY SPEARS - his debut album hasn't even dented the top 100 on the new Billboard 200 chart. The release, PLAYING WITH FIRE, has entered the chart at a lowly 151, selling less than 7,000 copies. Joking about what he'd do if the album didn't perform well on the chart during an MTV interview last week (02NOV06), Federline said, "I would probably poop on myself." "

Did nobody think of Disco Duck?

Whatever. I'm ahead of all of you and I didn't even know there was a challenge!

Rain, you answered your own question - nobody thinks of 'Disco Duck' or Rick Dees if at all possible. In fact, I'm sure a significant segment of the self-hypnosis/self-help markey is geared to that very effort.

Charo, on the other hand, is very witty and built like a 'Chicago' class heavy cruiser . . .

I can't come up with anything that hasn't already been mentioned.

I must, however, MUST defend "Jeremia was a bullfrog". Love the song! I loved singing that when I was a kid, but it's mostly because that song is tied to wonderful, albeit hazy, memories of one crazy drunk night with friends.

Crap, I'm so freakin' old.

My Way...as in Frank's way? Huh? Noooo! I love that song. That's Life, and My Way are blasted so much in my home, my husband swears I'm an older caucasian lady who knits and has a secret Sinatra memorabilia collection stashed somewhere worth millions.

I think y'all are referring to Joy to the World by 3 Dog Night. If they took Jeremiah out of it, it would be a perfectly respectable song.

Agadoo -I think it was by Black Lace -surely someone will remember that , it was just so HORRIBLE.

Anything by Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston or Michael Bolton.
Oh that who let the dogs out crap.Never Gonna give you Up by Rick Astley. A lot of Madonna's stuff makes me feel queasy.Same with anything by Tracey Chapman.Bananarama's version of Venus, Cher's version of It's In His Kiss(is that what it's called)-that always make me want to chuck.Anything even vaguely rap has the same effect.

Don't Worry Be Happy - when this became song of the year, I knew I'd never pay attention to the Grammy's again.
