Coming to you at the top of the hour, an all song-poem World's Worst Records Radio Show! 60 minutes of absolute crap!

A little, Davee, but I'll be with you soon!

Got any Corona songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan! Hi Otis! :-)
Avatar 2:02pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Georgy and everyone. Did Song Poems happen in the UK and other countries as well?
Avatar 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Otis... I think you're wholly to blame for some of these tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! Off to a fantastic start!
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Jan - hope you've recovered
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Rich!
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

I've tried to mix it up with a few classics plus some stuff from my own collection you may not have heard before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Rich in Washington:

What I absolutely love about Song Poems is the awkward logjam of words, trying to cram someone's awful poem into some semblance of a melody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Rich in Washington:

I would pay to be a fly on the wall of some of these sessions.
Avatar 2:05pm worldsworstrecords:

Agreed Rich... The Moon Men is a classic example of that
  2:05pm Listener Robert:

Wow, a Bagge album cover! I had no idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Rich in Washington:

I got to meet Peter Bagge! He seemed like a nice fellow.
Avatar 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Robert! It was put together for download on the old WFMU Blog
Avatar 2:06pm BC Sterrett:

I once had a song poem recorded from an offer on ebay. I was the only bidder for $10. The artist turned out to be avant garde conceptual musician Nick Yulman. Here's a link: swoodyrecords.bandcamp.com...
  2:07pm Listener Robert:

It looks so much like a frame of a Bagge comic that at first I thought you lifted it out of that context. I was starting to imagine what it was about.
Avatar 2:07pm worldsworstrecords:

nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sorry! Was making a cuppa!
Avatar 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

you're forgiven ;-)

This is wonderful!

Thanks Otis

perfect... coming into the chat on a song that perfectly describes what I'm doing on this Wednesday afternoon.... smokin' dope and snortin' coke lol

Hey NSK! Welcome!

'Getting down, with that awful sound..'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@BC - I'm not as familiar with song poems as I should be, to be honest. I don't *think* they're such a known thing here ... but I'm not an expert so I may be completely wrong! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Dan! Hello!! :-)
Avatar 2:11pm BC Sterrett:

I almost forgot, I had another Song Poem done about cheese with DIY/Daniel Johnston-ish musician "Thompson Owen." Here's the link: swoodyrecords.bandcamp.com...
  2:11pm Listener Robert:

That would've been great, by the way: a repurposed comic strip frame on an album of pieces of unrelated music and chants overlaid.

I must've gotten that concept from the 45 cover of Barreracuda's "Promises", which is a cartoon swipe from the art from "Promises, Promises".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm notsoKWYET:

Hi Darryl... GG... Otis... Rich.. .Jan and everyone
Avatar 2:11pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh, I'm looking forward to listening to those after the show
Avatar 2:12pm worldsworstrecords:

they were/are a very American phenomenon Georgy, although there were a few Brits trying it on. They existed in Australia and Canada too
Avatar 2:13pm worldsworstrecords:

DENTIST!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - C W McCall's "No Charge"? Does that come under the genre? Trying to edu-ma-cate myself :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Rich in Washington:

Speaking of Song Poems, one of the genre's most infamous crooners, Ramsey Kearney passed away recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

DENTIST!!! :-)
Avatar 2:13pm Davee:

You were right . . . just awful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm notsoKWYET:

BAHAHAHAHA --- my friend Jen said she'd be with me in 5 minutes 30 minutes ago ... to do yoga over camera.... this song is so fitting... JENNY WHERE HAVE YoU GONE
Avatar 2:14pm worldsworstrecords:

perfect!
Avatar 2:15pm worldsworstrecords:

let's hope she doesn't end up the same way as Dick's Jenny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@notsoKWYET - I'm going to do some yoga via a Toronto studio at the weekend :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm notsoKWYET:

Very cool GG!
Avatar 2:16pm BC Sterrett:

I love decapitation songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Rich in Washington:

@GeorgyGirl: Song Poems are the product of services sometimes called Song Sharking, wherein an add solicits song lyrics from amateur would-be sonqwriters, who are then charged a fee to have their (usually wretched) poems set to a real musical arrangement. Fame and fortune awaits you! Royalties! Etc.
There's a seeker born every minute.
Avatar 2:16pm worldsworstrecords:

..did she have time to think before her body was separated from here head? Now I'll never know, because she's dead...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm notsoKWYET:

Darryl... do you actually have this record?
Avatar 2:16pm worldsworstrecords:

it's frikking brilliant, this is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - aha! Thank you for that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Rich in Washington:

I recommend the documentary Off The Charts: The Song Poem Story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I shall check that out :-)
Avatar 2:17pm BC Sterrett:

That documentary was even better the 3rd time :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm notsoKWYET:

the best moment is when the next song name comes up and you just think "ohhhh... this is going to be badddd"
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh yes, great film!
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

shaking your maracas like hot sauce
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

They differ from self-made 'vanity' records in that the musicians are more or less professional, rather competent, whereas the lyrics are just awful. The kinds of poems crackpot shut-ins used to send to Reader's Digest or their local small town newspaper.
Avatar 2:19pm BC Sterrett:

"Shakin' Marakas like a Hawt Sauce"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm notsoKWYET:

I need a count on the number times Shaking your maracas like hot sauce was sung
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I've just found a copy on Vimeo - I shall watch that over the weekend :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Rich in Washington:

I've got a few comps from bottom-of-the-barrel Song Poem outfit Royal Master Recordings and in some instances, they reuse the instrumentals for different songs. Imagine if you sent away to have your song recorded and you hear a recycled backing track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

Oh, this is exquisitely awful! RIGHT ON!
Avatar 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

Alex Zanetis, at Royal Master, was an absolute crook
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Rich in Washington:

It's just awful, isn't it? Do you think they might be the worse? That Columbine track makes me think I might be wrong in my assessment of Royal Masters now.
Avatar 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

talking about reusing music, Rich, recognise this? It's pretty much the same tune as Black and I Am Proud
Avatar 2:23pm Davee:

This hurts
Avatar 2:23pm BC Sterrett:

SOULLL STomPIN'
Avatar 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

The next one will really hurt
Avatar 2:24pm Davee:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Avatar 2:24pm BC Sterrett:

I like dis one.
Avatar 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

This is so misogynistic though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Rich in Washington:

HA! That's great! I'll bet that reusing music might've been a common thing among song sharks. Rent's due!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Blimey!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Rich in Washington:

Jeez! Who wrote that? Spade Cooley? Horrible!
Avatar 2:26pm worldsworstrecords:

very much Rich... Rodd keith did it a lot too
Avatar 2:28pm worldsworstrecords:

an absolute classic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow!
Avatar 2:28pm BC Sterrett:

Ever hear that solo album by Rodd Keith playing the organ as "King Kuel" with really odd wandering vocals? Quite brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love this!!! :-)
Avatar 2:29pm Davee:

Unreal
Avatar 2:29pm worldsworstrecords:

Yeah, BC... I have that. It's nuts
Avatar 2:29pm Davee:

FIRE HIM!!! NOW!!!!
Avatar 2:30pm BC Sterrett:

I once performed "How Long Are You Staying" at a Lip-sync Contest. My only comment was that they imagined me practicing it in front of a mirror in my bedroom. wa waaa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Disco ... Disco ... Disco ... :-)
Avatar 2:31pm worldsworstrecords:

Next up is one of my all-time favourite records, song-poem or otherwise
Avatar 2:32pm Davee:

Uh oh
Avatar 2:33pm worldsworstrecords:

This, and it's flip side, is just astonishing
Avatar 2:33pm BC Sterrett:

This Lowry song is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm going to sing like this for the rest of the day :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Rich in Washington:

OH YEAH!
Avatar 2:34pm Davee:

Is the record warped?
Avatar 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

I've somehow managed to cram 22 mini masterpieces into tonight's show... hope you're all enjoying it
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

Sorry Davee, no... it's as flat as Bert's vocals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Enjoying it hugely!!! :-)
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

Excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

In the HARRberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

Who was Bert Lowry and where was he from? He sounds kinda West Country to my relatively uneducated ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Rich in Washington:

Was it actually Rod Keith singing in some kind of weird, perhaps drug enhanced, accent?
Avatar 2:38pm worldsworstrecords:

I wrote a blog on him years ago: I believe he was the president of the Portland Floral Society or similar, and he recorded several rose-themed songs on Film City. Song-poem/vanity hybrids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. Y'know, I've heard you play it on your show before and assumed he was not singing about Oregon's Portland, until listening to the lyrics just now
Avatar 2:40pm worldsworstrecords:

I do love a cow-punching gay boy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He did say that, didn't he???? I did a double take just then!!! lol
Avatar 2:41pm worldsworstrecords:

Bert Lowry blog link: worldsworstrecords.blogspot.com...
Avatar 2:41pm worldsworstrecords:

oh yes he did, GG!
  2:43pm Listener Robert:

So which is the bigwood and which the brush? Or is that just a general metaphor for, "Can you read people's intentions?"
Avatar 2:43pm worldsworstrecords:

this is so funny... I'm pissing myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is ... INCREDIBLE. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Rich in Washington:

This is just the best Song Poem ever!
Avatar 2:48pm Creature Boy:

I assume we're live. Zatso?

I'm off, until next week.
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

Me too, Darryl! This is a wonderful antidote to the lockdown doldrums.
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks for joining us Davee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Otis Fodder:

My speakers jumped out the window but I caught them in mid-air. I blame Dick Kent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

I think I've got a bunch of records to rip which need to be heard by you. I'll have nothing but time for a couple of weeks.
Avatar 2:54pm worldsworstrecords:

If you get the chance I'd appreciate it :-)
