    Recent discussions on Cluas have touched on the sometimes purple poetry of our dear own Bono. The various remarks submitted made me wonder...what are the worst, stupidest, most inane lyrics in popular music ? If Bob Dylan represents the pinnacle of excellence in modern lyrics, who represents the bottom end ? Over to y'all

    Oh, I dunno, how long is a piece of string? You can get lyrics that are so bad they're good. Millions of novelty pop songs. New Order are among my favourite bands of all time, but their lyrics are infamous for being bad, yet often the songs seem to hold up despite this. They still seem to get the feeling or idea of the song across somehow that I can't really define. Am I making sense or just talking drivel again? anyway classic New Order lyric, from the song "every little counts", Bernard Sumner cracks up laughing as he tries to sing it and they left it on the album: Every second counts When I am with you I think you are a pig You should be in a zoo I guess I should've known I'd end up on my own Every second counts when I am with you Every second counts

    Anything by Oasis usually counts as rubbish (with the exception of Live Forever)!!

    Remember that Baha Men song that went number 1 'Who let the dogs out' and then they just started barking. That has to be the worst song of all time.

    I know it's almost a cliche for bad lyrics at this stage but that Desree song Life with the line "I don't want to see a ghost/I'd rather have a piece of toast" still cracks me up.

    I think they were called the fast food rockers, or something to that effect. Just to set the record straight, I only know of this tune because I have younger (female) siblings. It was a chart song last year though. Curse their lack of musical taste

    Again in the same Desree song: "I'm afraid of the dark, especially when I'm in a park, I never walk under ladders, I keep a rabbit's tail". Also, I thought a rabbit's foot was good luck not it's tail?!! The lyrics in that song are so atrocious she must have been taking the p*ss!

    Maybe she means 'tail' like tail of the Bear on Hamstead Heath.

    "what if god was one of us....etc" the one from austin powers i think... 116th rate alanis morissette rubbish. at least alanis has the courtesy to put good melodies and great performance with her self indulged self help babbling lyrics.

    That'll be Joan Osborne's "One of Us". Bit of a harsh judgement there in my humble opinion - I've always loved this song, I think it's a good melody and the lyrics aren't the worst by any means. Then again, I did once buy a Nickelback single.

    ah yes Joan Osbourne. "What if God was one of us/Just a slob like one of us/Just a stranger on the bus/Trying to make his way home/No-one to call him on the phone/Except for the Pope maybe in Rome." Brilliant, though my ability to remember the entire chorus must say something about the catchiness of the song. This may not go down well but that Damian Rice song with the lyrics "Stones taught me to fly. . .Life taught me to die" really does my head in.

    What about that Oasis single from a few years ago, D'yer Know What I Mean. Something like, 'blood on tracks and it must be mine/ fool on the hill and I feel fine'. Terrible.
