Video Of The Day: Paradise

If this isn't the worst song ever recorded, it's definitely in the top three. I remember hearing this on the radio with my sister and both of us laughing so hard we thought we would pass out.

Don't miss the spoken word bridge at 2:37.

  1. I don't know how I managed to miss this growing up, but I've never heard it before. And thank God for that, I might add.

    What horrendous schlock. That gawdawful tuxedo-thing she was wearing was like a cherry on that whole shit sundae.

    So, I stuck around until the part at 2:37...

  2. At least the lip-syncing and wardrobe were completely on par with the song. Call it a trifecta.

  3. I would have killed for hair like that back in the day. Oh yeah, I remember that song. Wish I didn't.

    BTW, I've been to me. Not missing much there.

  4. I remember bits and pieces of this--it's fuzzy, but it sounds vaguely familiar. Apparently I've been able to repress most of it...well, until now.

    I wonder what she saw that woman aren't supposed to see. Probably nothing compared to what she might see on the internet these days.

  5. Anon - more like triFUCta

    Daisy - I wondered that same thing. I was thinking Goatse or Tubgirl.

    I've been to Georgia and California, too. I never considered it much of a bragging point. Charlene - talk to us after you've been to Easter Island or the Pitcairns or Heard/McDonald or Antarctica. But then nothing really rhymes with Antarctica, does it?

  6. I remember this one well. Kinda reminds me of that Melissa Manchester song 'Don't Cry out Loud' for some reason.

  7. Also, am I mistaken or did she use the term 'subtle whoring' towards the end?

  8. If you've been to Paradise do you really need to go to "me?"

    Melissa, yep, she says "subtle whoring." Not sure exactly what that is, I might have already done that.

  9. Melissa, I was just going to ask the same thing...around 3:17..."subtle whoring". LMAO!!! WTF is SUBTLE whoring???

    ReplyDelete
  10. Subtle whoring is when you suspect that your john may be an undercover cop, so you don't just bring out your menu of services.

    I remember this song, which is unusual since I was an "unborn children" at the time.

  11. Cary, those are two things that NO ONE should ever have to see, not just women.

  12. Sure you were, Frank. 1982.

  13. I've been to me. What's paradise like?

  14. OK, I'll fess up. I LOVED this song when it was out. Of course, I was about 11 and thought blue eyeshadow and neon leg warmers were the shit, too.

  15. Number 5 on what, the douche list?

  16. I can't believe it - this is my all time most hated song, even beats any Juice Newton song. My friend Jamie used to laugh at me in high school hurling myself across a room, a car, to get this off the fucking radio asap. It is hands down the worst, steamiest mess of bloody diarrhea ever foul the earth. I can't even enjoy the comments. This makes me want to be violent.

    Okay. Rant over.

  17. So no really strong feelings over this one, WW?

  18. I have no idea why I hate this song so much but it really, truly does an Incredible Hulk number on me. I wouldn't click on this link if you had a gun to my head. I've been angry for several hours now, and I'm realizing it's because I am reminded of this song.

  19. We Built this City on Rock and Roll does that for me. I think Cary's is Mr. Bojangles.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Especially if Mr. Bojangles is sung by CD.






    (See? I didn't spell out "Celine Dion." Happy, now?)

    ReplyDelete
  21. You know what the truth is? You've never been to me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm with WW. I loathe this song--everything about it. The lyrics are beyond laughable. It doesn't make me angry, but it is definitely in my top 3-4 most hated songs, a list that also includes "Jim Dandy To The Rescue" and a couple more I can't think of right now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't like Mr. Bojangles but it's not in my top 5 hated songs. Top 10 maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oooo, Jim Dandy - now you're really putting some crap in my head. Time to rerun those alternative lyrics you have for Mr Bojangles, I think.

  25. Worse than Dexie's Midnight Runners' "Good Night Eileen"? Don't think so. Nothing ever worse than that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Are you thinking of "Come On Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners, or "Goodnight Irene" the folk standard? I think you've mixed the two together.

    ReplyDelete
  27. "Come On Eileen" is "Stairway To Heaven" compared to this dreck.
