About this title


Encompassing such categories as "songs people always get wrong," "teen death songs," "songs women hate," and "weenie music," this musical commentary by the author of Dave Barry Turns 40 offers an amusing look at the "world's worst lyrics" and, in general, bad songs. 75,000 first printing.


Dave Barry, that indefatigable yukmeister, writes terrific humor columns (never mind that they all begin to sound the same if you read him regularly). He's the funniest friend you never had. If you read his column--better yet, if you don't read his column--get your hands on a copy of The Book of Bad Songs.

Barry's style is so effortless that you can't resist quoting him. This bit is from his mock-hortatory introduction: "If you keep reading, you're going to have all kinds of bad songs waking up and creeping around inside your brain, refusing to die, just like the corpses in the movie The Night of the Living Dead ..."
