Head "Piano Man" on the sirius classic rock station today and, man, bad song. So bad. Perhaps the worst.
Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

"Piano Man" is in the category as "Sweet Caroline" and "Brown Eyed Girl" of blatantly inoffensive, average to slightly above average songs that have been overplayed to death.

Not Worst Song Ever bad but why the hell is it one of the most played songs of all time?

No, Piano Man is awful and Corey Lazurus responding to byron with a gif from The Wire just proves him all the more correct

Laz being a fan of "Piano Man" might be the biggest surprise of 2014 at TRTSM.

Also I had an old co-worker who insisted Billy Joel played at the Old Port Tavern here in Portland and that the song was about the bar. I didn't want to correct him even though I've heard interviews with Billy Joel where he said it was about a piano lounge he played in L.A. after his first album flopped. Respect your elders and whatnot.

I'm sure every male between the ages of 50 and 65 that lives in North America claims that "Piano Man" written about an old bar in their hometown.

Eight minutes long.

Aaron Hill used this song to come to the plate when he played in Toronto. He looks exactly like my buddy Nick. That's not enough to save the song. It's okay, I guess, but it doesn't need to be fucking eight minutes.

Fake edit: Joe Walsh played this song on an episode of The Drew Carey show while Drew was in a coma - the exact fucking episode the show jumped the shark. Fuck a whole bunch of Life's Been Good.

Bingo, by the way, was called with "Rock n Roll All Nite".

Fuck Foghat's Slow Ride with a cactus dildo, while we're at it.

Real edit: The city of Boston is home to my most-hated hockey team, my second-most hated baseball team, a top-five for my most-hated football team, and the most annoying dialect in the history of spoken language. Therefore, "More Than A Feeling" is way behind in the count through no direct fault of its own. Taking that out of the equation, THE SONG STILL FUCKING SUCKS!`

"More Than A Feeling" rules, hoser. Not quite enough to justify me spending $35 to see Boston at the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion with Cheap Trick the day before 4th of July this year but man, I've thought about. I don't care if it's one original member (who's up there with Gene Simmons and Mike Love for biggest assholes in rock music) and a bunch of ringers. Seems like it'd be fun!

"Old Time Rock n Roll" is musical cancer. Everything about it makes me think of baby boomers arrhythmically dancing or going on about how rock will never die or whatever.

I AM THE CHEESE! I AM THE BEST CHARACTER ON THE SHOW!! I AM BETTER THAN BOTH THE SALAMI AND THE BOLOGNA COMBINED!!

"Brown Eyed Girl" is George W. Bush's favorite song of all time. Besides if you actually read the post where I mentioned it, I called it average to slightly above average!

American Pie could be a good jumping point to another thread--songs where Weird Al's parody is preferred to the source material. I guess that's like 90% of them, though.

White and Nerdy immediately comes to mind.

Weird Al did do a Billy Joel parody, yes.


Also, *hate* Joe Walsh much.
A Horrible Premise - Episode 48: TEN CORGIS TAPED TOGETHER - an improv comedy game show podcast about creating 'horrible' tv shows.

Opposite Attractions - a comedy design podcast where two idiots design their very own theme parks. SEASON 4 HAS BEGUN.

I feel like Amish Paradise might be better than the source material but I haven't listened to it in a while. I don't think Gangsta's Paradise aged that well, though I don't dislike it.

Even if you don't prefer any of his direct parodies, you have to admit his style parodies can be spot on. The lead singer of Devo said he wished he had come up with "Dare to Be Stupid" first.

And the Doors parody:

Me and my friends had a spirited debate about worst Led Zeppelin song at trivia last night and I was reminded of this thread. One of them obviously said "D'yer Mak'er" (no, Red Baron's not on my bar trivia team) . Friend's girlfriend who likes Zepp most out of any of us said "Down By The Seaside". I think the clear consensus answer though is "Hot Dog".

Which isn't exactly a classic rock radio staple but coincidentally, I heard it on the radio this afternoon on the local classic rock station and it reinforced my decision. That song fuckin' sucks. Led Zeppelin should never try to intentionally be funny. It reminded me of one of those crappy Muppet Show musical numbers with the terrible hillbilly Muppets.

Oh. Don McLean headlined the Maine Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony a few weeks ago. The show was running late and he literally shoved Howie Day ('00s soft rock one hit wonder, perhaps most notable for mackin' on Britney Spears while they were in rehab) so he could start his set. There were roughly 40 people in the 7,000 seat arena for the show.

Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" was on the classic rock station a few minutes ago. Awful. Why can't we all just collectively agree to ignore post Roger Waters era Pink Floyd? Outside of the choir and pretentious lyrics, the song sounds like it could be an outtake from ZZ Top's Afterburner.
