Maybe the riff is great but the lyrics....good grief!

For example, you've got the Montrose classic "Rock Candy" with the refrain-
But you're rock candy baby
Hard, sweet and sticky.
Rock candy baby
Hard, sweet and sticky.

Or Kiss with "Love Gun" -
No place for hidin' baby
No place to run
You pull the trigger of my
Love gun, (love gun), love gun
Love gun, (love gun), love gun

Yeah, when I was 12 I though the lyrics were great but some times hindsight hurts.:lol:

The lyrics are still great. You're just too old to appreciate them anymore. ;)

Lol great topic.

Kiss had some great tunes but yea the lyrics were beyond eye rolling on some songs.
Here is some more of their stuff -

Plaster caster, grab a hold of me faster
And if you want to see my love, just ask her
And my love is the plaster, and yeah she's the collector

Or how about

When love rears its head, I want to get on your case
Ooh baby, want to put my log in your fireplace,


In all fairness kiss did improve their songs greatly but those early years... maannn bad bad.

I know people will hate me for this but Steve Miller is on my list too -

You're the cutest thing
That I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Want to shake your tree
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
Ooo-eee baby, I'll sure show you a good time

Besides, "pompitous" isn't even a word.

How about this gem from Van Halen/Hagar -

I tell myself
Hey only fools rush in and only time will tell
If we stand the test of time

--time will tell if you stand the test of time..... I had no idea that you had to wait to find out if you stood the test of time.. now I know!

Sorry man, I like the songs. :shrug:

If you want all songs to be deeply meaningful listen to country-western or blues.

Hmm... I am still trying to figure out what the lyrics are from "Blinded by the Light" Manfred Man...

I'm talking about the "too old" thing. That was painful!!:lol:

Here ya go. This should be right up your ally. It's a great tune but the lyrics are right out of Finnegan's Wake -
We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
but the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
as the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
the waiter brought a tray
And so it was that later
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale
She said, 'There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
one of sixteen vestal virgins
who were leaving for the coast
and although my eyes were open
they might have just as well've been closed
She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,'
though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, 'You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.'
But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died
If music be the food of love
then laughter is its queen
and likewise if behind is in front
then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
and attacked the ocean bed

Here ya go. The might Zeppelin dug deep for this one -

You've been coolin', baby, I've been droolin',
All the good times I've been misusin',
Way, way down inside, I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.

Well, since you brought up Procol Harum, I've waited decades to whine about "Conquistador." Throughout, the word is mispronounced. It's not "con-kwis-tador"; it's "cone-kees-tador." Arrrgh.

But I've digressed. "Judy in Disguise" has truly dumb lyrics.

What about America's "A Horse With No Name"?

**** Led Zeppelin. If the annoying, shrill-ass lead singer's voice wasn't damning enough, there's a great example of how unbearably bad they were as songwriters. It's not innuendo if it can't be taken any other ****ing way, you coked-up retards!

Edit: DAMN IT LUTHERF! :lamo

You are right about "A Horse with no name", right up there with Jeremia was a Bullfrog. I worked top 40 radio in those days where you played at least 6 songs out of the top ten, so we lived with that ****

Okay, here's some fruit that isn't quite as low-hanging as Led Zeppelin, which I was also forced to listen to thanks to older relatives with no musical taste. I had to look for a while to find the name of this band and song, but I remember these lyrics all-too-well...

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: the chorus of Blurry by Puddle of Mudd!
Everything's so blurry
and everyone's so fake
and everybody's empty
and everything is so messed up

Translation: WWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! WHY CAN'T I RHYYYYME???

Ouch! America was among the worst. How about "Muskrat Love"?

I'd forgotten that. Just awful, isn't it? I wonder if Muskrat Susie and Sam are doing okay these days. :mrgreen:
