best worst song ever? the Shaggs "doin' it" it's so completely beautifully horrible.. like rubber-necking at a train wreck. I tried to find a link to it somewhere on the web, but so far no luck.

other than that pretty much the bulk of new country (bleargh!) most of the new crop of top 40 (punke).. yeah I know I'm getting old and out of touch with popular music.. HEY! wait a second.. I was never in touch with popular music

Hey now, "My Father's Eyes" is a good one.
As for bad, has anyone mentioned Hanson's MMBop here yet? That was pretty raucous.

Two worst songs for me are "I've got a brand new combine harvester" by The Wurzels
and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" as sung by William Shatner.

"Girl you'll be a woman soon" I hate on a sociopolitical level but kind of like as a soulful piece mainly because it works so bloody well in that scene from Pulp Fiction.

No. YOU suck.

Actually, while I've always enjoyed his old stuff, I would have to agree that his newer stuff (80's and newer) does kind of suck, at least when compared against his early work.

Clapton moves around the musical spectrum almost as much as James Taylor. His concerts almost guarantee you'll hear both stuff you love and hate.

Holding Pete listening to Clapton do Wonderful Tonight at the Carrier Dome...

I may be a dork but at least I'm an old dork. hmm.. maybe that's not quite what I want to say.
