    Here’s the Muslim answer to Rebecca Black’s “Friday”—Raef sings “Jumuah.” (Jumuah is the Friday service at the masjid.) Admittedly, it’s better than the original, but still humorous when keeping it in mind:

    Here’s a Brazilian line dance, “Dança do Quadrado.” (The quadrado refers to the square each dancer moves around in.) Is it better than the “Electric Slide” or “The Wobble”? You decide:

    Haha...The Gong Show. You knew as soon as they started in on "Feelings..." they were getting the hook. The Night Chicago died... Now that was great song. I think I rated it as a tie with Seasons in the Sun. My 10 year-old self couldn't stand that song. Ear torture. The radio would go off and stay off after that.

    Why ruin a perfectly good song? Central lyric takes the cake. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRwYQgk05DY

    I've been trying to figure it out for years. Ohhh, nooo ......
    And after all this time I still LOL each time I hear it.

    Rick Johnson was right: these bitches suck.

    At the risk of offending some I would tie 'Land of hope and glory', 'Jerusalem' and 'Land of my fathers'.`

    A whole swathe of entertainment, all sorts of lengths, all sorts of stories, all with that 'Olly' twist.

    This song was actually a parody of another song (wanting to say the original artist is a schizophrenic man in Chicago and one of the most prolific recorders ever, but I might be mistaken). Song was done as a joke to prank/honor another band with which this band is on friendly terms.

    It's still a terrible song--but its at least a funny and deliberately bad song.

    Get out your prozac, kids! We’re about to venture into one of the most dismal, unfortunate corners of the post-punk D.I.Y. movement.

    What are we to make of this monstrous affront to music with it’s disco beat, ponytail jams, and straight-from-a-1979-Ford station-wagon-cassette-player-demonstration-tape synth riffs?

    For a band that identified with the early eighties minimal wave scene, they seemed to be unaware of any of it. I’d like to think they were being brave by aping the tenets of long-dead hippie pop songs, but no, I fear the truth is that they completely and thoroughly sucked balls.

    Pairing a jaunty prophet 5 riff with a 4/4 beat does make for a brisk, lighthearted sound, but dig a little deeper and the whole thing falls apart like a rusted through wheelbarrow. Untreated piano? Sorry, guys. That’s not allowed in new wave. And that guitar solo, while reasonably proficient, still sounds like someone trying to scrape a wad of gum off his shoe while balancing on a treadmill.

    The only sign of life here is the female vocalist. I like her style, but she would have been more at home with a band that didn’t ask their parent’s help with songwriting. I’m hoping that her pronunciation of the word art is affected, but considering the pretension that surrounds just about every other aspect of this song, I’m not holding my breath.

    And then there are the lyrics. Excuse me while I regurgitate in my mouth for a moment. MTV and it’s increasingly commercial ethics were a prime target for punks and new wavers alike, but to make a sweeping statement that “Video is not art” without specifying what kind of video you are referencing is too smug for my tastes. "Video just isn't penetrating.." Really? That's your argument?? Who doesn’t remember doing bong hits at two in the morning while watching some inexplicably bizarre conceptual video on some obscure public access TV show? Video certainly can be art. Cold Dogs In The Courtyard cannot. And yes, y’all dig Bukowski’s poetry. Big deal. What grandiloquent college student doesn’t? Beware of the 1: 35 mark where you’ll find yet another lyrical couplet that’s so bad, it actually putrefied the stylus on turntables across the world:

    The kitchen has it all screwed up/and cable shows us how to kill a pup.

    Ouch! If there was a jail for bad lyricists, the guy who wrote this would be buried under it.

    I know I can’t ever unhear this steaming pile of raccoon shit, but I can take solace in knowing the guy who wrote it ended up becoming - you guessed it - a video producer!

    Life can be cruel when you’re too big for your britches.
