We have been force-fed shovel-fulls of creamed 'turd'.  We had to vote on the bottom line for next year's manure.

None of this pure, unadulterated dreck should be awarded a chance to converse with anything but the lowest, least and crappiest of songs all of which are located in the literal basement of the OBVIOUS tin outhouse.

Flush twice.  It's a  L O N G  freekin' way to Mike Love's next l.p. release.

Better flush THRISE.

What a week.

Rachel Hunter makes this Fountains of Wayne clip worth it.  Possibly the only clip this week that will get a full viewing. [smile]

***Attention, everyone ****

It's looking like Hurricane Matthew is coming to the East Coast, USA.  Since I live on the Eastern part of NC, we are going to be affected with something this weekend.  If you all don't hear from me, we probably don't have power.  I'd prefer not to have any dealings with Matthew at all, but would rather it be a tropical storm, rather than a hurricane.  

While I'm here, I'll go ahead and cast my votes.

GOLD (the gagger):  Feelings by Morris Albert.  I really do hate this song and really not welcome to be playing over and over in my head.

SILVER (the stomach turner): Summer of Love by the Beach Boys.  This one probably took a whole 2 minutes to write.

BRONZE (station turner):  Honey by Bobby Goldsboro.  Sad, but not too terribly bad.  I'd just change the channel though.

TIN/PEWTER (Meh): Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus.  It's a catchy little tune, but I wonder if the song was written because of the line dance, or ... I think the dance is worse.

My final answer.

Be careful and safe and smart as can be in the storm.  It may be coming up here but looks like you are getting something that could be big:

Just play it cool and if power permits - add some music to your day.

Yes, indeed!

Cindy (and other East Coasters) do whatever you gotta do to be safe and sheltered as Matthew approaches. 
The Battles are fun, but nothing urgent by comparison.
Terrible to see Haiti get clobbered again as they're still trying to rebuild from the earthquake 6 years ago. 
Cuba had a tough go of it also. 

I'll join you in hoping it downgrades soon. Keep happy songs in your heart if the power goes.  [cool]

As for the current news on Hurricane Matthew... Last night, it was down to a category 3 hurricane, but today is back up to a 4 to possibly a 5 as it goes into Florida.  May God help all those in Matthew's path.  As for NC, it is looking like the storm will curve around as it reaches South Carolina tomorrow and go out to sea.  However, these things can change course like it did with Katrina in 2005 when it made a quick turn and headed towards New Orleans.  

Lee, as the saying goes, 'Mama said there'd be days like this' and goes for BOTB's also.  I hope you're feeling better by now!

I've got Darren, Kds, Pete, Larry, Lee, Lisa, Al, T, John B.'s and my votes on the books so far.  Thanks to you for getting votes in early!

Cindy, really hope you're doing okay.  (And all the animals out there.)

The girl who has everything.  Daddy even has enough money to turn her brown eyes blue.  Do we think she's sexy?  I don't think so.  Try overpainted, overproduced, overinflated petty criminal.  [smile]




Rod, if you willingly gave *sold* that to her, you're off your rocker.

That is way worse than any of this week's records. 

I'm affronted by it and am truly sorry I ever saw it. Genuinely outraged.

Here's a very bad one from the great Neil Young: "There's A World", Harvest, 1972



Another from Neil that's of questionable merit:

As the YouTube video says, "You don't write a 10-minute song about having mashed potatoes and not having T-bone and not make a few enemies". Especially if the only lyrics are "Got mashed potatoes" and "Ain't got no T-bone". Those statements come up a lot as the 9 minutes and 10 seconds progress.

"T-Bone", Re-Ac-Tor, 1981



But seriously, what the heck is with these dopey ratings?

In a sort of "Mega-dittos Rush!" motif, this AM we can like, but not dislike a post....

Here's a couple more (personal) channel changers:
Statler Brothers - Countin' Flowers on the Wall


With apologies to Lee...
Johnny Nash - I Can See Clearly Now

t -- That's too bad, I was beginning to appreciate the need for an anonymous thumbs down.

Anyway, your "Countin' Flowers on the Wall" is the first song anyone has posted this week that I like and have listened to all the way through. In fact, I might just play it again! In fact, I just did!

My favorite part, of course, is when they do that "watchin' Capt. Kangaroo" harmonizing. {Note for the uninitiated: Capt. Kangaroo was the much beloved host of an American kid's TV show} "Don't tell me, I've nothin' to do."

It's been hard this week to think of songs I actively dislike -- maybe it's a longstanding defense mechanism -- and I don't want to post "Smart Girls", but here are two famous singers I grew to dislike intensely without ever knowingly listening to any of their songs.

As introduction, many years ago, my cubicle was across the way from a woman who played the radio. The station she listened to often had a woman or women singing in a semi-operatic way and it would make me want to jump out one of our 22nd floor windows that couldn't be opened. Maybe it was Mariah Carey. Maybe it was Whitney Houston. Since I don't know any of their songs and am not going to investigate their catalogs now, here are two almost randomly selected (obviously, since they're not the Statler Brothers, I didn't listen to them all the way through): 

Mariah Carey, "Vision of Love", 1990 (12 million views, only 1,100 thumbs down)



Whitney Houston, "I Will Always Love You", 1992 (313 million views, only 41,000 thumbs down)




PS -- For those of us who didn't completely grasp t's "Mega-dittos Rush!" reference:

This single from early 1968 didn't chart....so I couldn't turn off the radio. But I would have. I know these guys are gods in some punk rock circles, but to me they were a band that needed to take 6 months off and practice!!
Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat


P.J. Proby, a transplanted Texan who achieved more success in the UK than at home, and who famously split his trousers on stage, had this #23 (US) January 1967 hit: Niki Hoeky



More:
Lorne Greene (yes, THAT Lorne Greene) - Ringo (no, not THAT Ringo) (peaked at #1 in November 1964)


Byron MacGregor - The Americans (peaked at #4 in January 1974)

John B -- All U2 songs? I've never understood why they were so popular. Maybe if I listen to all of them it will become clear?

Unrelated:

The two songs I never listen to when playing the Pet Projects compilation: Gary Usher demonstrating his gift for singing on "Sacramento" and "That's the Way I Feel". Nobody has inflicted the second one on YouTube users. This is the first one:

Larry - I plead guilty and sentence myself to 99 years in the hoose-gow (spelling?) for that misdemeanor. To play it safe, I'll avoid the more recent artist "Usher" in future Battles, also.

A few more atrocities....








then there's this recent viral oddity of dogs who are obviously "in-bread":
