GUEST,Joe_F Worst Song? (72* d) RE: Worst Song? 20 Apr 06


Inasmuch as the total number of copyrighted songs must, by now, be on the order of 10^7, it would be rash to take the question literally. However, among the songs that are sung at sings I go to, there is one that stands out as being so embarrassing that it forces me to come up with some business in another room. It is called "Harriet Tubman". It contains not a single good line. It contains no information about its ostensible subject. Its imagery is unimaginable. It sets my teeth on edge. I think there is an element of bullying in writing a song that bad about an admirable subject. Giggle, and you're a racist, must be the idea.
