This book is about the second category. Some of the crap lyrics in this book are the result of lazy rhyming, some are too baffling to explain, but all are amusing. Some of the lyrics belong to a time when we had different values. The chapter of bad euphemisms was a favourite chapter for me. A lot of the songs in this book are good songs overall, with just the one dodgy lyric so this book can also remind you of some great music.

Even the greatest songwriters (and Spandau Ballet) have had the odd bad day at the office. Or more likely, a bad few minutes in the studio toilets scribbling the first words they can think of on the back of their tranquiliser prescription shortly before the vocal has to be recorded. Johnny Sharp has trawled half a century of lyrics to find the funniest examples of crippled couplets, outrageous innuendo, mixed metaphors, shameless self-delusion, nefarious nonsense and flagrant filth. Not to mention unforgivable over-use of alliteration.

Ever! by Johnny Sharp.
Songwriters often don't seem to bother with the basic laws of the English language. Bob Dylan is famous for "Blowing in the Wind" but less known for his quite original line "wiggle, wiggle, like a bowl of soup;" Duran Duran sang "you're about as easy as a nuclear war" in "Is There Something I Should Know," and Spandau Ballet even named a song "Instinction," which is in fact not a real word. The airwaves are crammed with terrible titles and nonsensical lyrics, and this hilarious compendium catalogs and identifies the very worst offenders.
