Worst EC song?

Post by StarvingWriter » Thu Aug 12, 2004 11:32 pm

I think it would be a fun survivor game to figure out the worst EC song... it could work just like the current survivor game, only you would try to vote off your favorites first.

If we do that, I think the instrumental tracks should be omitted... it would feel like a cop out to me if it just ended up being some random instrumental track.

I think that would be pretty fun, and might have a surprising result or two.

okay, we need a list to start with. are we including covers?

here are my inital thoughts on where to start:

1975
AM Radio
All Fucked Up
Baby Talk
Blondes
Connection
Drunk Again
Happy
Happy Hour
Lame
Like a California King
Nehalem
The Honeymoon Song
Trust Fund
Volvo Driving Soccer Mom

disclaimer: the preceeding list does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the author, but is mearly a feable attempt to represent commonly held board opinions

anything else that must be included?

how about the EC version of 'brown-eyed girl?' i like it myself, but i've heard a number of people grouse about it.

i must insist, however, that 'happy hour' and 'nehalem' be removed IMMEDIATELY! particularly 'happy hour,' since it made it to the top-10 of the BEST EC songs list!

;) you get an "A" for effort tho, casey!

...and if you take out "nehalem' and 'happy hour,' then i'll cast the first vote:

remove "Lame" from the worst songs list!

("Lame" is GREAT!)

XOXOXO

Sounds like a good idea but we only really need two options: the cover of Brown Eyed Girl and the cover of How Soon Is Now. If anything other than these unholy musical miscreations wins then I'm putting sugar in all of your gas tanks. In the words of Winston Churchill, "Touch me, Winnie, you beast".

In fact, I wish that I had more enemies just so that I could send them a copy of Brown Eyed Girl.

okay, add browneyed girl (as much as it pains me) and remove happpy hour
however i have to stick to my guns w/ nehalem. i like the song too dear, but it did get 3 votes in the very 1st round of s&f survivor. yes, i realized chemical smile actually lost that round, but some things are sacred
i was going to include how soon is now, but couldn't confirm actual loathing of the song from previous games. thank you, vaughn.

official list is:

1975
AM Radio
All Fucked Up
Baby Talk
Blondes
Brown Eyed Girl
Connection
Drunk Again
Happy
How Soon IS Now
Lame
Like a California King
Nehalem
The Honeymoon Song
Trust Fund
Volvo Driving Soccer Mom

and my first vote should be of no suprise to anyone:

PROTECT BABY TALK

sh, we can disreguard your earlier vote & say voting starts now.

and i will start my lobbying now: please realize folks, you are actually voting for the song you dislike the least & therefore keeping the hated songs on the list. Therefore, any early round voters of Connection will be duly castigated.

you folks are all too late to add new songs to the list -- nevermind the fact that adding sbh & mw is strongly against my everclearloving principles. regardless of what you think of the song, glorious gets a reprieve because it's still unreleased. as for having songs removed: VOTE FOR THEM, duh!

so, a big
