^^^^^Whoa! I bailed in less than 3 seconds after he started "singing"...

The horror! The horror!

That was especially horrible after listening to Rachel Price & Lake Street Dive in the Good Saturday Morning thread...

I'm nominating that "Give Me A Reason" song by Pink and Fun. Not sure who is higher pitched and it annoys the heck out of me.

This trash used to be played on the radio on the way to vocational school when I was on the bus to get there. Every day, for about a year. To date, no song has ever made me more livid.

[video=youtube;ZDprMdEKK7E]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDprMdEKK7E[/video]

I cannot imagine a more trashtastic piece of ****, and yet people are willing to pretend it belongs on speakers.

Even if you don't like the song, one should appreciate how talented a singer Toni Tennille is.

Oh come on. That's a great song. Just listen to how Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks did it on their "Where's the Money?" album. Of course, he's not exactly C&W.

We can't listen to it in the U.S. Youtube has banned this video here on copyright grounds.

He's totally off key, but the song is bizarrely compelling and apparently he had a strong following while he lived.

He reminded me of another artist Daniel Johnston; both lived through schizophrenia, and Johnston actually worked at McDonalds for a while.

The video "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" is a fascinating documentary of his life.

Here's one of his songs.

[video=youtube;9FE74jMbFiA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FE74jMbFiA&feature=share&list=TLSM74F9zwyYM[/video]

and the one he is probably best known for Casper the Friendly Ghost

Tiny Tim (Herbert Khaury) was a musical genius.

its hard to pick out a single song when artists' entire back catalogues are awful:
Celine dion
elton john
billy joel[/COLOR]

^^^^^This was a post "fixed" by FatherAlabaster (post #15 ) to which I pretty much disagree. I do agree that the world can do without Celine Dion.

Elton John has done some masterpiece stuff, and while I'm not a fan, Billy Joel is nothing short of great.
I particularly like EJ's album, "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player." I like this song in particular:

In retrospect, pretty much all of the punk that came out in my high school years.

Any and all covers of great R&B by singers who are terrible at it even though they might sell more copies than the original singer examples:

Johnny Rivers butchering Chuck Berry's Maybelline and Memphis

Linda Ronstadt whimpering through Jackie Wilson's Higher and Higher, The Miracles' Ohh Baby Baby and Track of My Tears, and the worst cover of all time of one of the greatest songs of all time Martha and the Vandellas' Heat Wave

Janis Joplin screeching Erma Franklin's Piece of My Heart

There are too many more lame covers of R&B to list but the above are a start.

Janis Joplin was touted as being the best white female blues singer; which meant as much as being the best white halfback.
Swigging a bottle of Wild Turkey on stage doesn't make her sound any better. Maybe if I drank a bottle of it she might not sound like a cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. She BUTCHERS a great song.

Find a copy of of Erma Franklin (Aretha's sister) singing the original, I've still got my 45rpm single bought back in the day.
