World's Worst iPod: King Tut by Steve Martin

In the mid to late 70's, the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun  was on tour in the United States.  It inspired comedian Steve Martin to write a song which made it to number 17 on the charts in 1978.  Jonathan and most of the Triple M listeners loved the song, but Kitty didn't want to hear it.  She doesn't mind the song, but her friends failed to buy her a ticket to see his show back in 1978 so she's still bitter.

Love Steve Martin
I saw the Steve Martin concert in Madison at the Coliseum. It was hilarious. HEaring the song just makes me smile. By the way, I really can't believe that all of these (mostly) horrible songs came from one source.. Was it a joke iPod? Have you added to the song list? How could anyone possible scour the years of horrible songs and put them together-especially years ago when you found it. It continues to make me shake my head. Ever find out where it came from?

Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic. But that's not what I'm going to gripe about. My problem is that ugly holiday sweaters are now becoming...

1. U2- Songs of Innocence: One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...

World's Worst iPod: Carl Douglas "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting"
It's hard to believe a novelty song like this went all the way up the charts to number one---but it did, and actually stayed there for two weeks! It seemed most everyone, excluding our meteorologist Brian Olson wanted to hear this song, which came...
