Has anyone heard "Wooing Song of a Yeoman of Kent's Sonne"?

It's a very old song that makes fun of people from Kent, although I expect it's difficult to sing properly because of the, er, peculiar English pronunciation required to pull it off.

(those are just lyrics... can't find it online).

Ah well, I found something a tad low-brow:

Henry Purcell's Pox On You. A three-part counterpoint on farting and belching.

Well, weirdly, I'm awake, and for no real good reason trying to learn the bass part to Carlo Gesualdo's O Vos Omnes (the 1611 version with 6 voices).

What the fuck is wrong with me?

Nothing - if you're a musician.
Plenty - if your're not.

Heh... I performed enough music to think of myself as a musician, but I haven't performed music before a crowd for a long time.

Hm.

Attention universe:

"One Headlight" by The Wallflowers is officially the Worst Song EVER.

Just sayin'.

(And there's no possible way the Wallflowers would *ever* have gotten off the ground without the "my dad is Bob Dylan" boost.)

Remember some years back...

The "Dylan and the Dead" Tour ???

A/K/A

"The Band that Can't Play fronted by the Guy that Can't Sing" !!!

Can't say that is the WORST song, Paradise By The Dashboard Lights is much worse.

Hmm.

I've never heard One Headline by The Wallflowers.

Is it worse than this?

And if you watch that video any of the suggested videos are just as bad.

btw, it features this instrument:

I saw it life on stage. It outperforms the amps easily.

on 300 m distance you still would hear the stahlofon loud & clear, while the guitars & rest would fade in volume.

IG, you should get your choir group to sing this sometime:

Now that was one amazing piece of music. It's truly hard to believe it is "old" - those harmonies and progressions could easily have been written well into the Romantic period and not seemed out of place in the least.

Loved it!!

Carlo Gesualdo, possibly at his most extreme, chromatically. If you liked that, you might really like his Morro Lasso:

Exceptional! Humbling!!

To think, after all my years, finding this makes me really admit that "there is nothing new under the sun" after all.

Replace the voices with a string orchestra and it could just as easily be from "Tristan und Isolde" or perhaps an "obscure corner" of the Gurrelieder or even the Mahler 5th.

I even heard hints of Leonard Bernstein in there.

They must really have hated this guy back in his day!
