I am sure everybody will agree that lyrics, any lyrics, will never get worse than this:<br><br>"When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do<br>Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue"<br><br>From A Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins.<br><br><br>

" If you can´t eat it or fuck it....<br>   Then Kill it!!"<br><br>That´s by a band called Carnivore. It was written by Peter Steele, who´s nowadays known for being the frontman of type o negative. I bet he was wearing a newspaper ´round his head when he wrote that...

[quote author=white person link=board=general;num=1042649696;start=0#6 date=01/15/03 at 15:41:56]Well, the lyrics (chorii especially) of MacArthur Park and Horse With No Name have clung to the canyons of my mind like cranial dingleberries for lo these many years. I'm not gonna spew 'em out here...you've heard 'em, you know they suck.<br><br> :P[/quote]<br><br>MacArthur Park- You must really hate that song.  ;)<br><br>

Well,<br>     Amon Duul's "Wolf City" LP had some horrible lyrics...like the song "Green Bubble Rain-coated Man"!They sang about "frogmen" a lot...I don't think they knew what they were saying.They are German and seemed to know little English.It was weird though,their earlier Lps had fathomable lyrics and song titles.What happened?!<br>    The Flower Kings' (I think it's)"Psychedelic Pie" really sucks too!  Something like "We'll fly the Psychedelic Pie,Right into the sky...",you know what I mean?Every line ends in rhyme. :P
