bonnie, I wouldn't think they're so much trash as totally daggy. 

'Escape' contains the most unrealistic storyline of all time. 

'And she said, "Oh, it's you", and we laughed for a moment.'

Can you imagine the s---fight this couple would've had in real life when they found out their partner was cheating on them? 

A host here actually used 'Key Largo' once. It won the Bronze. That clip gives a whole new meaning to "Here's looking at you, kid". His paramour looks about 14 and this portly guy has a beard. 

'Afternoon Delight' - a song about shagging each other during the day by people who looked like Mormons (and were real life friends with that other dag John Denver).

Beat it, Bertie.  



These guys are apparently not even a joke!




Looks like you've opened the door, Al.  Anything could come up, including David Soul.


I used to absolutely hate the Escape (Pina Colada Song), but I came around on it last summer after hearing it so many times randomly.

More garbage...sorry Al..."trash"?  Without wasting space...anything by ABBA.  The entire Barry Manilow collection.  [Sorry Bruce...I'll go with the version you and Carl sang with David Cassidy.]  Who else?  Tony Orlando and Dawn.  The Captain and Tennille 'collection'.  Any and all releases foisted upon the unsuspecting listening audience by Air Supply.  [and Olivia Newton John]  ALL post Supremes' Diane [OK...Diana if you insist] Ross releases.  All post R&B era Bee Gee's disco poop.  [ie:  most everything after Jive Talkin']  The Madonna and George Michaels' 'bodies of work'.

That should fill up a fleet of trucks.  Send e'm all back for most of Paul McCartney's silly love songs and that 'love' guy's various solo releases...including the Celebration 'series'.  [leave SIP as I want the entire collection of BB's releases to remain intact.]

Ya know!?!?!?!  There'd 'a' been hell to pay...and murder to follow.  One of the stupidest songs ever although...if you disregard the lyrics...there are worse tunes.

thanks, John E, for the obvious one, "Trash" by the NY Dolls (from Statin Island, where my new heroes the Impractical Jokers are also from).  Don't count my votes yet, I want to play them all another time first, but right now I got: Sharon Marie, Tom Tom Club (you don't feel this song's happiness, Lee?), Sofi, and the Waitresses, in that order.

methinks i  must've been missing the point,
'cos i truly believe trash can be good
and am happy to embrace the rubbish stuff that triumphs over badness.
yet, we're surely going to be subjected to utter detritableness this week...

so, i'll indulge m'self a bit more with something i recorded at the greys,
here in sunny brighton a few xmases ago.
the champion of all things doom'n'gloom in the world of country music,
hank wangford here with spanner and brad breath
 
(that's guitar hero and our brighton chum andy roberts 
of liverpool scene / bonzos / roger mcgough / plainsong / pink floyd/ roy harper... renown):


and, local post-punk champs the piranhas
featuring greys pub regular boring bob grover
(for as long as i have, predating their chartbound period
- he was in on monday night, as ever...)
with that very annoying jit-jive top 5 hit from in 1980
which became the footy anthem at brighton & hove albion matches,
i) on top of the pops on telly 1980

ii) a raucous rendition at the opening match at the new amex footy stadium in 2011

iii) and under cover in the rain outside the greys

sometimes you just can't shrug off your musical heritage!
call that a heritage?
(he's written some corkers over the years, has bob,
but this one just haunts him!)
cheers

Not trashy enough?

Lets really scrape the bottom of this barrel with two lovely ladies who usually look like the could do with a good wash.





And Garbage borders on trash, just as it does on mediocre and dated.

Paul A - absolutely, trash can be good - although everyone's trash may be different.  We all have some good mixed in this messy kind of week.  Loving the things put up and Bonnie's look back to some songs and they're daggy! Whoa.

Is there a trashiness within the Industrial?  I was there!!!!

I like Eminem and he says 'dag'.  But, being over 50, I don't know what the word means, though.

anyway, if 'Surfer Bird' by the Trashmen is 'trash', and "Louie Louie"? then trash can't be all bad.

Okay, I predicted correctly: I actually like all the songs except 'I Know What Boys Like' (no, I don't like her/them).

1) "Runaround Lover" by Sharon Marie  benefits by repeat playing, as many Brian compositions do
2) "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club   (inexplicably good from an awful era of music...kind of like Tears for Fears)
3) "Best Friend" by Sofi Tucker  (Better than 'You're My Best Friend' by Queen--even though, boy is that commercial annoying with that 'meet me at the club' part.  The young woman herself is charming)
4) "I Know What Boys Like" by the Waitresses   Sorry to dis a group from Lebron's and Steph's hometown, but rather like fingernails on a chalk board to me.  'Brat' girls do not appeal to me.

Kudos for thinking outside the square, Al.

But I’ve listened to these for three days now. That’s enough.

Gold - Run-Around Lover (Sharon Marie - 1963)
Would get my Tin in most weeks. Not this one. Please don’t ask me to recall the melody tomorrow morning.

Silver - I Know What Boys Like (The Waitresses - 1981)
I remember thinking, even as a teenager, they could’ve gotten someone better looking to sing this. I hated it. I wouldn’t have liked her anyway, sucking away on the fag. Wiki says she died of lung cancer at 40. Nya, nya, nya, nya, nya!

Hardly a level playing field to compare a live MTV recording with really average audio against a digitally remastered studio recording with an arty clip. Nevertheless…..

Bronze - Best Friend (live) (Sofi Tukker featuring Nervo and The Knocks - 2017)
The cutie with those eyes wins it. Lousy showcasing of it in this comp, though. I’d probably have rated the record higher this week. As it is, it’s almost Helge Schneider territory (the only act to ever get all Tins in a week). Cute name. Guaranteed recognition ala Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones, Gilbert O’Sullivan, The Dead Kennedys. Sofi Tukker? Weren’t they the Beatles’ favourite American group?



Participant - Genius of Love (single) (Tom Tom Club - 1981)
Sheesh! This was a hit? Clearly your Gold, Al!

I doubt anyone else will nominate this rubbish. It went Top 10 here in 1964. Four words. Apparently written by James Brown using a pseudonym …


Is this trash? Big hit here…

Now we are getting trashier.
Bonnie has her - the queen of trash, herself: C. Love (and Kurt was into the trashy sounds as well):

The REAL Sophie Tucker is getting some play (which is good) and yes, Paul's mention:

The technique of Sophie Tucker (a Hartford girl)

The Waitresses had Square Pegs (we meet Sarah Jessica Parker)

Some Tom Tom Club
Quirky and live (two years ago here in CT)

http://www.tomtomclub.com/
Sofi and Tukker (their first song - hit?)

Brian trashes up Gershwin with Sharon Marie:

Sharon Marie was a Marin County girl:

I almost used this:

Could have used Kookie, Kookie also.
Darren already knows my first vote - mind reading.
Keep on casting and building the trash heap.

You probably know this, Al, but Sophie Tucker never recorded 'Till There Was You'.

Yep - knew that.  Not bawdy enough.  But Paul's intro was good at Royal Variety, of course only to be topped by John's classic.  [cool]

Come on folks, I have a BIG dumpster ordered for the end of this week and keep the tunes coming AND votes.
