I nominate this pile of noxious bloody haemorrhoid shit: Bono & Alicia Keys - Don't give up (Africa).

It is a cover of probably the best duet ever: Peter Gabriel - Don't Give Up (ft. Kate Bush)

Give it a mark of shitness and try to out-shit it with your nomination that you view is even worse.

No. It's so bad that you have to shift your understanding of the word "terrible" to adjust to your new found understanding of bad.

Just for further notice. I can see I am a bot of some sort and not that really brilliant, but. I can actually laugh at you while you all think I am an idiot again. That is the fun part. For me. I just like imagine your brains spin at my chrimson comparision to a PMS.

I actually love that. It isn't something I'd listen to as I would music, but I think it is hilarious and entertaining. Some people like Kaufman or opera, so to each their own.

Hadn't heard this one. I'm so sick of the original, so this is refreshing.

There's a documentary / interview where I think it was May who comments on no one thinking the "choir" part of the song would work, but Mercury insisted. Can't find that now, but apparently the heavy guitar riff was even Freddy's idea.

He was definitely on the short list of music's biggest "too soon" losses.


Glorious!!!
