blatantly bad 70s songs: (you’re) having my baby (paul anka)

quite possibly the worst of the worst.

well, i’m not having anybody’s baby at the moment, but i am probably in surgery having my gallbladder removed. (ah, the glamorous life.) so instead of blathering on about how bad this song is (and i defy any of you to tell me, in 50 words or less, why this song rocks your world), i am linking to jason hare’s adventures through the mines of mellow gold. he explains, so much better than i ever could, why this song is awful piled atop awful.

read it. it will make you lose control of your bladder. in a good way.

props to college pal and indie musicologist mike for the suggestion.

and don’t be a hater. i had to write this in advance.

have a nice day.

  1. First of all, sending you healing surgery thoughts. Second of all,

  2. Well, talk about screwing up the line!! Second of all…nothing??

    Ahem.

    Second of all – HURL!

  3. I hope all goes well with your surgery and you have speedy recovery. So nice of you to leave us with such a terrible song. You are so sweet. This one is awful in tune and lyrics. All that “seed” talk just makes me uncomfortable.
    Seriously, wishing you all the best.

  4. Lots of healing wished for a successful surgery and recovery. No more fat-laden binges for you, sister.

    Secondly, this post did nothing to relieve the nausea I’ve felt all night and this morning. Thankyouverymuch for making my tummy feel worse but my guilty brain gloat!

  5. So, tell me you’re singing to the surgeon right now, “You’re havin’ my gallbladder.”

    Sending you healing, feel good vibes!

  6. Hope things go well! I’m really hoping this is the start of you feeling tons better.

  7. To All:
    My sister Wreke is home recovering from her surgery. Everything went well and she is resting. Thank you to all for you well wishes.

  8. More good wishes – make a speedy recovery!

  9. Great news that Wreke is recovering. I hope it’s speedy. As for Paul Anka, I’m only familiar with the dog on Gilmore Girls.

  10. OH, GLAWD! Thank you for getting to this one. I remember being offended as a nine year old girl by this one. For me, it was right on the heels of “I am Woman, Hear Me Roar”. I am telling you, it felt like a psychic cataclysm hearing this song everywhere I went.
