Wikipedia says 1989, I had to look cause I couldn't remember. I would have said earlier than that. My memory is not that good;). I agree, wasn't much left of the 80s.

When my son was about five this was his favorite song, "Abracadabra". That figures, the age group who can stand it also likes The Wiggles, lol.

I guess it's "Tony". Hey, you from New York? You know a guy named Tony?

Yep. Looking forward to seeing and hearing him play it live on Sunday evening ;-)

He is a great guitar player, underrated, in my opinion, but as a writer, some are kind of funny. Like the made up word(s) in 'The Joker'. Just watched a u-tube video of Steve M. and Les Paul in New York and it was really good. Hope the concert is Great!

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall.

"A dinosaur Victrola listening to Buck Owens." -- CCR "Lookin' Out My Back Door"

Apologies to "The Dude," of course, but no matter how many White Russians you drink, that's still entering a world of pain lyrically.

Nah, John Fogerty is paying homage to one of his heroes, and the "Bakersfield" sound. I think Buck himself covered the song; I'm not sure.

Steelers fan says:
If you examine Fogerty's lyrics, they're not exactly loaded with humor. "Back Door" is as light as the band got. The song is weird, though.

Oh I know they're not loaded with humor. CCR was the soundtrack for coming home twitchy (or in a flag-draped box) from Southeast Asia.

It's the "dinosaur Victrola" part that gets me. Buck's actually one of three country music artists to which I listen (Roger Miller and Johnny Cash being the other two, though the latter is more a genre unto himself). He was the one cool guy on Hee-Haw.

Well, Roy Clark was a whiz on just about any stringed instrument, but he went pop ("Yesterday, When I Was Young").
I dug Grandpa Jones. "Stringbean" got murdered in his own house.

No doubt about Roy's prowess on stringed instrument. He still looked like someone's dad from around where I grew up, to varying degrees, depending on the size of the sideburns in a given episode.

Compared to him, Archie, Gordie, Lulu, Minnie, Grandpa and the rest, Buck just looked out of place. No big surprise he left before it ended.

I thought Buck stuck it out till the end. Show lasted for years in syndication.

Negative. Buck met another and PBBB! he was gone in 1986, six years before Hee-Haw ended.

Right. Buck left; Roy stuck it out. Whatever happened to Susan Raye? She was kind of hot back in the day.

From Elton John-Rocket Man
Mars ain't the kind of place you raise your kids
in fact, it's cold as hell

now nothing wrong with Mars ain't the kind of place you raise your kids
but cold as hell? isn't hell usually referred to as a hot place?

still that's probably not the worst rock lyric ever, a lot of worthy (or should I say unworthy) lyrics have been mentioned.

I always thought that Kiss-Crazy Nights, Van Halen-Summer Nights and Bon Jovi-Never Say Goodbye were all pretty weak lyric wise from start to finish.

This is by no means categorized as "worst lyrics", but rather a line that always puzzled me.
Neil Young's Heart of Gold's "Doesn't mean that much to me to mean that much to you."
Shouldn't it be "Doesn't mean that much to you to mean that much to me."
Because if something doesn't mean much to you in the first place, what difference does it make if it means anything to someone else?

You're wondering who I am
(Secret secret, I've got a secret)

Machine or mannequin
(Secret secret, I've got a secret)

With parts made in Japan
(Secret secret, I've got a secret)

Domo arigato, Mr, Roboto
Domo (Domo), Domo (Domo)
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto
Domo (Domo), Domo (Domo)

The whole song is pretty ridiculous.

And I'm with DPask on Abracadabra.

From one of the queens of bad lyrics, Jewel Kilcher

lmw: how about:
There are addictions to feed
and there are mouths to pay
so make a bargain with the devil
that you're OK for today

But who will save your soul
if you won't save your own?

any better?

what do you mean?

Posted on Nov 3, 2012 8:56:30 AM PDT
I don't know why you say goodbye, i say...
(drum roll, please: brbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbr...)
HELLO!

hello, hello, i don't know why you say goodbye, i say...
(you've probably got it figured out by now)
