    I think this is pretty awful. Anyone want to take a stab at who it is?
    Well, I'm lookin' at you,
    And I'm wond'rin' what you're gonna do.
    Looks like you got no friends,
    No one to stick with you till the end.

    Chorus
    Take yourself a friend.
    Keep 'em till the end.
    Whether woman or man,
    It makes you feel so good...
    So good!

    Yes, you think you're all right,
    But now you're lonely ev'ry night.
    Well, you need a friend,
    Someone on whom you can always depend.

    Chorus

    Yes, you need some advice,
    Well, let me put it to you nice.
    I said you need a friend,
    Someone who'll stick with you to the end.

    Chorus

    When I think of worst I think of 'Seasons in the Sun' by Terry Jacks.

    Awful, awful, awful!

    Re: Worst Songs from the 1970's

    I've got to admit that the '70s produced some pretty bad music and some awful clothing to go with it.

    Disco was awful (even for those of us who survived it). But it was "dance" music. Wasn't supposed to have good lyrics.

    BTW "Ring My Bell" is my candidate to worst song.

    But, please, don't mess with Frampton. I can still listen to that stuff (unlike some of the early Beatles songs which I used to love, but now get on my nerves).

    In any case, I doubt history will be very forgiving with today's rap (yep, missing the c) and hip hop and their "icons" with the bling, piercings, "attitudes" and basketball "shorts".

Glen Campbell had bigger hits (but not many) and Jimmy Webb wrote many songs that were huge hits, but both both the singer and the composer peaked with "Wichita Lineman." ...."and I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time, and the Wichita Lineman is still on the line...."
    Wow, I was only three, wonder why it scarred me so? Maybe it was the "Hi! I'm Glean Cambull" show? Never was a big fan. :

    It also strikes me as odd that a thread such as this, which is so opinion based (and musical threads are about as opinionated as political threads) why there are the "can't believe someone considers that a bad song," especially when no one has defined what qualifies something as a bad song? Is this a music critic thread or a personal opinion thread? By the way, "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" being released in '69 is kind of splitting a hair for criticism of my choice. It's a sappy song with sappy lyrics.

    This made me spit my coffee.

    That said, I like 70's tunes because it was the time of my youth. It was stacks of 45s played on a little suitcase record player.

    I love Kodachrome, Hot Child in the City, many of the one hit wonders! Who doesn't love a little afternoon delight.

    Lot of cool groups too - Boston, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who, Elton John, Chicago, ELO, Aerosmith .......

    Re: Worst Songs from the 1970's

    BTW, I love late 60s and 70s music, but most of it is in the classic rock genre, not the easy listening stuff that I'm taking a beating for not caring for.

    Can I vote all of the above? 70s music in general doesn't do anything for me, but nothing makes my skin crawl like Anne Murray.

    Then again, I actually liked MC Hammer's cover of "Have You Seen Her", so maybe I'm not fit to comment.

    Re: Worst Songs from the 1970's

    I agree with "Seasons in the Sun" and "Wildfire." Story songs, especially about war or horses, should never be played on the radio. I also think any song containing the word "boogie" deserves consideration, especially "Boogie Oogie Oogie" by A Taste of Honey.

    But no list of worst 70's songs is complete without this cat:

    But I sent you away...

    A pair of muskrats share(s) our creek with assorted beavers, a Little Blue heron, a pair of mallards, frogs, fishies and one cross, jabbering kingfisher. Every time I see the muskrats, their awful anthem, courtesy of the Captain and the lovely Toni, gets stuck in my head. Muskrat Love has my vote.
    teach tolerance.
