Worst Song Ever
"BP" chimes in on the Worst Song Ever discussion...
With all due respect, "Rose Garden" can't be mentioned in the same breath with the all time worst song ever placed on vinyl, "Afternoon Delight." This monstronity was #1 during a good portion of 1976. In one of biggest travesties in Grammy history, Starland Vocal Band beat out Boston for best new artist. In addition, they afflicted us with a TV variety show that ran during the summer of 1977. Both David Letterman and Jeff Alman participated in this televised roadkill. I'm sure both Dave and Jeff would advocate burning all evidence of that TV mistake that surely can be rationalized due to their youth and inexperience.
All excellent points.
