And for what could very well rival any song that William Shatner ever interpreted . . .

Dawn, singing Steely Dan . . . .

While I still think Paul Anka has the championship title of worst song in the world, I’m amazed that this duo managed to suck every bit of angst, despair, irony and darkness out this song.

  3. Ok… I tried to get the entire name in twice and it didn’t work… Someone else want to try?

  4. Awww, it’s the thought that counts . . . and the electoral votes

  5. Paul Anka also wrote the theme to “The Longest Day,” so I think his song ratings were set back to zero with “Having My Baby” (and eating it too).

    On the other hand, there’s always “The Captain and Toenail” if you need a baseline…

  6. In the vault of the National Bureau of Standards, Paul Anka is stored in a glass case as the base measure of bad songs.

  7. I only lasted about 30 seconds … couldn’t take any more.

    Doesn’t Mr Anka know that in the USA cruel & unUsual Punishments are forbidden

  9. M. Eagle,

    Thank you! A Constitutional justification to take Mr. Anka around back and beat him black and blue! In my opinion, he is a far worse threat to the Republic than any 500 people interned at Guantanamo Bay.

  10. I must disagree with you, FFE.

    It’s Neil Sedaka at the National Bureau of Standards and Measures (unless one is measured in Troy and the other in Avoirdupois).

    Of course, Kenny G. is in a sub-dimension and can’t be measured.

  11. Per unit measure, Anka’s got Sedaka beat by an angstrom.

    Kenny G can be measured, if you hit him with enough subatomic particles. Say, a 2 kiloton tactical nuke . . .

  12. Hadn’t considered that but I believe you may be on to something. The Kenny bastardization of “It’s a Wonderful World” should be reason enough to strap him into the particle accelerator with Monster Magnets ductaped to him. You make the arrangements, and I’ll crank it up and pull the trigger, and we’ll both share the glory.

  13. Vaporizing the sax may be a problem, though . . .

  14. MMMM

    Watching Mr Clinton’s endorsement of oor Hilaarah’s endorsement of oor Barak …

    … perhaps we should not think so harshly on Mr Anka …

  15. Havin’ SEX with Paul Anka was an even more impressive sacrifice!
    There ain’t nuthin’ that a bottle of Tequila can’t fix!

    I would like to forward two other horrible songs; Sylvia’s Mother and Midnight at the Oasis, foryour consideration…blecccch!

  16. Oh and puh-leeze don’t diss the Shatman..
    he is a National Treasure!

    I’m not asking with this,
    I’m telling with this Oye!

  17. Now, now, I never said the Shat wasn’t entertaining or that he left his choice of songs as desolate wastelands. Thes two wenches, however, left that song drained of all essence as would the infamous salt vampire masquerading as Nancy Crater that Shatner had to defeat in episode # 1 (production #6) “The Man Trap” after finding that she was actually the last survivor of a race of creatures that roamed Planet M113 like herds of buffalo on the old plains and . . . and . . . .

  18. I just puked, dude.
    Sorry.
    Puking from laughing too hard delays my comments.
    I apologize.
    It I can find the 9Teen version on CD, I’ll send you the file.
    it will at least get you gastrointestinal tract functioning again.
    Fuck dude, where so you find this stuff?
    I know. YouTube.
    Laughing my bloody ass off here . . .

  19. “Muskrat Love” has just entered the ring, tag-teaming with “Waterloo” to fight “Midnight at the Oasis” and… wait… hold the presses… Minnie Ripperton’s “Lovin’You” just joined the fray. It’s gonna be a bloodbath! [Insert Sam Kinison scream here: “OW-OOOOW!”]

    I’m outta here before I get nightmares.

  20. Bunk: A looped version of ‘Lovin You’ was actually used by the aerospace industry in the first commercially viable instance of electron beam welding.

    Mike: Those kerosene hand pumps you can buy at Walmart for about $6 make handy airway aspirators . . . so I’ve been told.
