Doctor John What is the worst song you ever heard? (249* d) RE: What is the worst song you ever heard? 03 Oct 99

Frank, I agree that "Puff" is a snowbird song all right (it couldn't be an accident surely) but it was sung here by a real clean looking living couple and was certainly aimed at children. Perhaps they didn't know what they were singing about; I certainly didn't at the time. There's a tendency in the UK for very anti-establishment figures after a few years to become fawning estabishment versions of their former self (eg David Frost, sorry Sir ...). The Beatles recorded "Strawberry Fields" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" but now, 4 OBE's and 1 knighthood later it's "nothing to do with drugs; based on ditties the kids made up..." Was that a pig that flew by? The Guardian did a similar poll and the worst came to be "Shifting Wispering Sands" by Eamon Andrews in the 50's. Yes it is pretty awful. Then Terry Wogan recorded "The Floral Dance". Grim. Is there a tendency for media Irishmen to produce dreadful records. Get to the recording studios Henry Kelly , it's your turn! Dr John
