Quite possibly the worst song from the 1970s

and I use the term 1970s loosely



I can't be certain, but from following the lyrics I could make out, I think this is a song about a guy in love with his identical twin sister and he's ignoring her pleas to leave her alone.

I was browsing in a record store one day when I heard someone say they'd found the disco version of "Stairway To Heaven." I was so infuriated that I went over and, when no one was looking, broke that record over my knee!

45. My middle daughter appropriated my "Death Before Disco" t-shirt from the late 70's.

 

It has a skull with a knife through the top of it. That's pretty much how I felt about it, and her as well. She knows "classic rock" better than I do and I grew UP with it. I heard a hip hop version of "Stairway To Heaven" in a bar a while back and promptly finished my beverage and left. Some things are just wrong on every level possible.

My best friend from high school had a wide-carriage dot-matrix printer hooked up to his Apple II. We wrote a very simple program that printed "DISCO SUCKS" over and over and over and over and then took the paper (green bar) to school and slipped them into lockers through the vent slots. Nobody figured out who had done it, despite the fact that we were known geeks.

Progressive rock from the early 70's is still some of the best music ever made (Genesis, King Crimson, Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, and such), and late 70's rock like Heart, Styx, Bad Company, Dire Straits, Talking Heads, and such was really good stuff, but disco sort of threw a shadow over the entire era. Most people, when asked about 70's music, think "Bee Gees" and John Travolta in his white idiot suit. He's done some good work, but the "Stayin' Alive" thing isn't among it.

Disco Duck - Rick Dees et. al.



This next one may be perceived as a cheat, but I stand by it. "I've Never Been to Me" was actually recorded in 1977 and released, but didn't become famous until its re-release in '82

Mrs. OBD likes Barry Manilow and Olivia Newton John. I despise them both (musically, anyway), which is just one of the things about marriage that is fun.





And Mrs. OBD likes this song that I despise:



She despises this song that I liked at one time:

64. Here's a gem with great lyrics such as:

"Girl, you're a hot-blooded woman-child, and it's warm where you're touching me..."

80. A twofer for Gilbert O'Sullivan!

"Alone Again (Naturally)" was mentioned upthread.

75. One of the worst has got to be Feelings

a song so bad I can't even find it on YouTube. All the artists who sang it decided they hated it so much they had their versions removed from youtube!

This was one song we didn't want sung at our wedding so we specifically asked the band not to play it. Towards the end of the reception, my sister got up and sang it!
