I don't recall ever hearing this song. Although the title rings a bell. Should I YouTube it or leave my ears worm free?
You know, a co-worker actually yelled at me when I told her I'd never seen The Godfather or On The Waterfront. Jeez, I seem to be doing my damndest to reveal my appalling lack of culture. Did I mention I majored in anthropology?
*ponders peddling his Godfather virginity on ebay for a quick buck*
"Seasons in the Sun" is a bowdlerized English version of a fine, bitterly ironic song by Jacques Brel, "Le Moribond" (The Dying Man). There is a video of Brel singing this song on You-Tube (with English subtitles).
I haven't heard (thankfully?) the lemon dontcry mentions. 'Seasons' definitely has a case to answer. Personally, I have written to technology companies requesting 'Una Paloma Blanca' cancelling headphones so that I might never hear it again for the remainder of my days. 'Blueberry Hill', on the other hand, or the sitar version of 'Edelweiss', fall into that odd category of awful things that make me laugh.
I hate to be difficult, but you're both wrong. The worst song ever in the history of sound and ears is "Jackie Blue" by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. The people responsible for writing it, recording it, distributing it, and playing it on the radio should be taken into custody and tried for crimes against humanity.
Uh oh, the earworm is spreading. Google is advertising it as a ringtone on this page edit: on Wordie when I commented: "Me You A Dog Named Boo Want This Ringtone? 100% Complimentary - Get It Here! Billboard-box.com/Complimentary."
