Worst 80s record you bought
« on: July 15, 2003, 23:32:35 PM »
I actually have 2 but I`ll kick off with this one.
It was the 1981 Tottenham Hotspur FA Cup Final Squad singing "Ossie's Dream (Spurs are On Their Way To Wembley)"

It was referring to Ossie Ardiles who was the 1st Argentinian to play in the FA CUP.

The Lyrics went something like " Ossie's going to Wembley his knees have gone all trembly le la la la"(something like that.)

I'm not even a spurs fan so I must have bought the record because I liked it. [smiley=headscratch.gif]

I've never bought an 80s record so I'll answer this as 'worst "song" of the 80s':

Joe Dolce Music Theatre - "Shaddap You Face" (1981)

I am guilty guilty on two counts of buying a crap novelty record - Firstly, The Firm's Starr Trekkin', which was a truely God-awful song designed purely to annoy.  >:(

The other one was Spitting Image's "The Chicken Song" - the only redeeming a feature was the B side "I've never met a Nice South African" which is (or at least 'was') truely hilarious. I've since found this statement not to be true..

"Star Trekkin'" and "The Chicken Song" are both excellent, IMO.  Have you tried listening to "The Birdie Song"?

I think I should admit at this point that I also bought the 'Chicken Song' by Spitting Image and 'Hole In My Shoe' by Neil from the Young Ones!

Hurdy Gurdy Mushroom man (flip side of Hole in my shoe) was just a very cool record. My brother and I annoyed my parents for hours on long car journeys with this one!!

The true stars of that video are the Al Jolson synchronised sax players - fantastic!

And brilliant miming and shuffling from Vanessa there, yes indeed, Desmond. Why did I fancy her when I was 14?

You're right though - it's a naff song. Cha-cha-chi??

I think it done so well coz she was a bit of 'Eye Candy'!

My worst song I bought?

Has to be "There's no one quite like Grandma".

Well I didn't buy it as such but had to listen to it over and over again when I visited my grandparents on sundays!

somehow got a copy of Daddy's Home by Cliff Richard when I was 10 - I'm not admitting to buying it, it just somehow appeared in my record collection.

also does anyone remember the song by "jimmy the hoover" - blimey that still haunts me to this day
