No, it really isn’t. You may not like it, but that doesn’t make it a really bad song.
You want really bad ‘songs’, try listening to BBC Radio One for half an hour, it’s not brain cells you’ll lose, it’s the will to live!
Blockquote That’s interesting, typically I’m the one who can’t pull up stuff due to geoblocking. I wonder if it’s because it’s a band from Scotland (part of the UK)?
Doubt it, more likely an EU GDPR issue - there are lots of news items I can’t read in Flipboard because of the EU’s Great Firewall, protectionist bullshit.
There was so much to dislike about it. Also; in the parts that Hazlewood was singing, I could hear stylistic echoes of “These boots are made for walkin’”. The melody was like a slowed down version of that.
I’ve always loved this song, ever since hearing it as a frequent “bump” song on the “Coast to Coast AM” radio program, where it makes for a perfectly creepy soundtrack. Another forgotten song that was often featured: “The Highwaymen”.
