darkriver WORST single lines (228* d) RE: WORST single lines 12 Jan 00


Well, someone up there (laughing too hard right now to scroll smoothly upward) mentioned looking for the bad lines in folk music. All right, then . . . .

(These are actually pseudo-folk--it's hard to imagine stuff this bad surviving the supposed 'folk process'.)

"I hear folks have names for things, like rain and wind and fire . . ."

and

"I gave my love a cherry, that had no stone . . ." (I really enjoyed that scene in the movie Animal House where some Sincere Young Man With A Guitar starts that last number, and one of the frat guys rips away the guitar and beats the SYM over the head with it.)

Others?
