Apparantly Desiree "life" has one

But I liked that culture club

"War is stupid
and people are stupid
and ... [something else] is stupid
and ...[lalallala] stupid"

Definitely my fave

I remember an ABC song that rhymed "mustn't grumble" with "apple crumble". Inspired.

I still like
I'm serious as cancer
when I say that rhythm is a dancer

Nik Kershaw's The Riddle is pretty good to sneer at...it's so bad I can't even remember the words but lots of singing about a little old man in a hole in the ground.

Meggle - I've always thought 'moving like a tortoise, full of rigor mortis' was GENIUS. Probably only works if you're from t'ghetto, though.

LIFE

Chorus:
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot doot dooo.
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot dooo

I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,

Ooh, I get the shivers
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news
(Repeat Chorus)

I'm a superstitious girl,
I'm the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders,
I keep a rabbit's tail

I'll take you up on a dare,
Anytime, anywhere
Name the place, I'll be there,
Bungee jumping, I don't care!
(Repeat Chorus)

life, doo, doot dooo
doo, doot dooo

So after all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to

Sometimes living out your dreams,
Ain't as easy as it seems
You wanna fly around the world,
In a beautiful balloon

Yes Effin.
That is absolutely shite isn't it.

The vote for shittest contemporary lyrics goes to Razorlight.So bad i burst out laughing when i hear one of their songs. Plus the singer sounds like Bob Geldof circa 1979.

I really, really hate Razorlight. Over-rated, over-hyped and the lead singer is just awful.

surely Black Eyed Peas 'My Lumps' has to be in there somewhere.
God it is utterly appalling.

But desiree is definately the worst I have cringed every time I've heard it. Its painful to listen too.

Martin Fry was on the news saying he could write something even worse than grumble/crumble if he put his mnd to it.. now, there's a threat!

There is Blondie song in which she says "night came down like a black leather jacket". Heh heh!

Actually, Blondie is a very rich vein in daft lyrics...

"Pretty baby, you look so heavenly, a neon nebula, from under the sun".

Stunning!
