    Re: Worst Song of the 80's....

    I will add another vote for "We Built This City." My brother and I found the song to be so awful, the only way we could tolerate it was to make up new words, resulting in a song called "We Built This Country (On the Principles of the Constitution!)." I think we got the title from some humor publication, like National Lampoon or Mad Magazine or something and decided to run with it. I only wish we had written down the words, so that I could remember them now.

    Enough with the Starship bashing. Nothing comes close as close to suckdom as Billy Ocean. "Get outta my dreams (and into my car)," now there is an awful song.

    Others worse than We Built This City:

    Cover Girl - New Kids on the Block
    Crush on You- The Jets

    Heartbeat- Don Johnson
    Joanna- Kool and the Gang
    Tarzan Boy- Baltimora

    This list begins and ends with "She Blinded Me With Science". That was just wretched.

    Those other songs are all bad, but none have the audacity to make the bold proclamations of "We Built This City." Scope is important.

    Also, Grace Slick's singing voice is mildly reminiscent of the sound a cat makes when you throw it on a belt sander.

    Plus, the lyrics are absolutely terrible.

    Ouch, that was my favorite song when I was a kid. I would make my cousins play it over and over again, making them hate it.

Hell his TV show "Doc" has been on for several seasons.
    I had a cousin that grew up down the street from him and used to beat him up pretty regularly.

    I can agree with anything and everything else on your list...but Terrance? C'mon...he was going to be the next Jimmy Hendrix and Prince all wrapped into one...oh, wait....nevermind.

    Johnny, the thread isn't titled, "Which songs made audacious and bold predicitions."

    How can you deny the sheer awfulness of these lyrics:

    I don't care what you say
    you can give it away
    Your money don't mean much to me.
    I've been out on my own
    gonna got it alone now
    'Cause that's the way it's got to be.
    Ev'rybody tells me how I can beat the odds for now.
    Well
    I've been standing by the fire
    but I iust can't feel the heat.
    Heartbeat - I'm looking for a heartbeat
    Heartbeat - I'm looking for a heartbeat
    beating like mine.
    Looking at me
    it's easy to see
    You think you know iust how I feel.
    If you do to me wrong and it won't take me long
    Before my restless heart will heal.
    I'm looking for a love
    love like mine
    They tell me it's so hard to find
    But I can feel it in the rhythm of the heartbeat in the street.
    Heartbeat - I'm looking for a heartbeat
    Heartbeat - I'm looking for a heartbeat
    Beating like mine
    beating like mine.
    Tell me what you feel now without the heartbeat
    Tell me is it real now without the heartbeat?
    Heartbeat - I'm looking for a heartbeat. (12x)

    Read this line again:

    If you do to me wrong and it won't take me long
    Before my restless heart will heal.
    That makes absolutely no sense. This song is the worst of the worst. At least Grace Slick sings on "We Built This City," which is much better than Don Johnson's talking/rambling through this piece of incoherent buffoonery.

    There's a lot of debate about these lyrics, but I believe the correct line is "Oh Sherrie / our love / holds on / holds on"

    Dom, for a song to truly be considered "The Worst," it has to attempt to be more than just a silly love song. All those "story" songs from the 70's are good examples. I can't deny how pathetic "Heartbeat" is, but in the end, it's just another semi-gooey pop song. "We Built This City" took pop to a new level of crapulence.

    Add "Unskinny Bop" by Poison to that list, although the song was released in 1990.
