"Mama Look-a Boo-Boo" by Gawd only knows

I heard this when I was about eleven, whiling away a summer's day scrabbling with a friend through the friend's parents' closet. We came upon a stack of 45's, among which was this gem.

It's a calypso tune about an (apparently) incredibly ugly man. The tune is kind of catchy, but the lyrics were so awful that we played it about a hundred times, laughing till we nearly passed out.

I've forgotten the verses, but the chorus still lingers:

"Mama look-a Boo-Boo" they shout Their mama tell them shut up yo' mouth-- That is yo' daddy! Oh no! My daddy can't be ugly so! Shut yo' mouth--go away! Mama look-a boo-boo dey! Huh! Shut yo' mouth--go away! Mama look-a boo-boo dey!

Thirty years later, and I still haven't shaken that from my memory. Sheesh.

Dear Rock Chick:

First of all, let me apologize for my bad manners. I seem to be in a pissy mood. You have, of course, every right to not like a song.

Here's a little more information about Cyril Tawney:

Cyril Tawney joind the Royal Navey as a 16 year-old and served in a variety of craft, but mainly submarines. His role as a folk singer evolved out of his activities as a scriptwriter and performer in Naval entertainments. He came to the attention of the BBC in 1957 and soon had his own fully networked television program. It was around this time that he decided to buy himself out of the Service and become a full-time singer. Apart from his own compositions, Cyril has specialized for the most part in English folk song, mainly South-Western and Maritime, and he played an important part in establishing the Folk revival in Devon and Cornwal.

While some of the words used in "Chicken on a Raft" might seem nonsensical they are all part of the language of the Royal Navy. Cyril Tawney has written many wonderful songs that are much loved around the world especially to those who love sea music.

Richard

The WORST??? You want the absolute worst? That's tough.

How about just settling for a few real stinkers, and giving up on the idea of finding the definitive worst song ever...it's as elusive as the Snark.

I nominate the one from Karate Kid, part 3..."like a knight in shining armour...from...(ummmm, hmmm, well gee)...a long time ago" Bleaugh!

"Kung Fu Fighting" Bam! Smack! Aieeee!

Then there's "Morning Train" by Sheena Easton. Guaranteed to stick in your head and drive you nuts.

That's good enough for now.

If that's the same "Suzanne" I'm thinking of, I had thought of that as a pretty good song, actually. "Chicken on a Raft" is not about eggs on toast, it's creamed chipped beef on toast, or shit on a shingle, in American parlance. When they served us S.O.S. in the Army, the poor K.P.'s had their work cut out for them policing up all the vomit off the floor. In my opinion, "chicken on a raft is not a good song, but hardly a contender for "worst." "Worst song" is a field so awesomely competitive as to boggle the mind!

I have heard people say that "My Way" is a strong contender for worst. Meaning, I think, "worst" among highly successful "classic" popular songs. You can make a case for that; in the sense that it takes a fine tune and then defiles it with truly yucky sentiments.

I would argue the worst song on DT is ESKIMO NELL, a rather horrible "joke" about murder and rape, claiming to be "satire." Whoever thinks that is a "satire" has led a very protected life!

Before I get grossly misunderstood, I must insist that I am and have been for more than fifty years a fervent admirer of Pete Seeger.

HOWSOMEVER, his song, "If I Had a Golden Thread" has got to be one of the lousiest songs going.

In almost-Biblical terms, Pete sold his birthright for a pot of message on this one.

And the eyes of a Ranger are upon you,
Anywhere you go he'll always see,
If you're in Texas look behind you,
That's where the Ranger's going to be.

For uninitiated folks outside of the U.S. that is the theme song from "Walker, Texas Ranger". The show's star, Chuck Norris actually had the nerve to kind of sing it. It has to be very near the bottom of the pile, IMO.

I am frustrated, because since that show began, I've never been able to decide which is worse- the song or the show. This implies that I have actually watched the show at times. I'm afraid I must admit it. Please be kind. I have now developed a Pavlovian response to reach for the remote control whenever I hear the words: "In the eyes of a Ranger"... Thanks, BlueJay

Oh Catspaw, not * everything * by Red Sovine...! I used to play Phantom 309 nightly in a country band, and there wasn't a dry seat in the house, so it made me a few bob (to use an English phrase). But I agree, a full album of that stuff has you reaching for the bottle, pretty damn quick. May I nominate Charlie Rich (I think) and Behind Closed Doors, which I've always thought of as the most crass male chauvinist piggery I've ever heard.

'Not a dry seat in the house' is an old cabaret-artist phrase, which can signify achieving taking the audience to extreme emotion of either sorrow or joy - or indeed hysterical laughter. The interesting aspect of the country music suggested by Spaw is that all these different effects can be seen on different people in the same audience!

Taking the physical aspect of this discussion to a whole new low, I'm told that after the Beatles concerts of the mid-60s, the theatre aisles were literally awash.

I don't believe it, not a single mention of Frankie Vallie's entire back catalogue. Or the interchangeable early Beach Boys tat (you can see the conversation now: "What's this one about?" "Oh, just another one about cars and surfboards, with our nuts in trapped in a drawer." "Cool, let's do it."). And no-one's spotted "Sugar baby love" either.

Trouble is, there's always some dodgy songs you like, for no apparent reason. I'm a sucker for power ballads, so "She's like the wind" (Patrick Swayze) and "Will you" (Hazel O'Connor), for example, are songs I like but I know I shouldn't, cos they're a bit tacky.

The Beatles wrote a song called "Run For Your Life" : Run for your life if you can, little girl. Hide your head in the sand, little girl, catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.

Later, in one of the verses is the line:" I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to see you with another man."

We don't need songs about stalkers from the stalkers viewpoint. What were L. and M. thinking?

Another one, I don't know the title, but it has the line: don't, don't you want me, you know that I can't stand it when you say that you won't see me." and later: "you better change your mind or we will both be sorry". Sounds like he's planning a murder/suicide.
