Gift of the Day: 'Crap Lyrics: A celebration of the very worst pop lyrics of all time...ever'
Not sure what to get the pop culture geek in your life this holiday season? PopStyle is here to help! From the hottest gadgets to the oddest collectibles, we’re rounding up the best gifts in movies, music, TV and books with our Gift of the Day.
What songwriting legend penned a tune that includes the lyric “Wiggle, wiggle like a bowl of soup”?
That would be Bob Dylan. (Hey, you can’t expect “Blowin’ in the Wind” every single time.)
There are songs that get stuck in your head, and there are songs that bore their way into your brain. Johnny Sharp deals with the latter in Crap Lyrics: A celebration of the very worst pop lyrics of all time…ever ($12.95 at urbanoutfitters.com).
From catchy trifles like The Black Eyed Peas’ “I’m gonna get, get, get you drunk. Get you love drunk off my humps,” to Dylan’s bizarre “Wiggle, wiggle like a bowl of soup” line — which is certainly not going to be remembered as one of his best — relive some of the lowest points in the history of songwriting with this off-beat anthology.
