Worst Christmas Song ever

The slightly masochist people at have chosen, after long and excruciating deliberation, the worst Christmas song / video ever. Sorry Macca, it's nothing personal. But why on earth did you have to make such a truly tacky song? Even to the standards of the late 70s. You're rich, aren't you? You've got your musical freedom? You don't have to record any piece of shit, do you? So, again, WHY ? And people, by all means do check the video featuring a great number of musicians (and never mind that there are no instruments whatsoever in the song itself, apart from a keyboard from Plastic Hell) and the late Linda McCartney shaking bells.

Oh, and don't forget to check out this guy, whose song came in a close second in the Retrocrush Christmas poll.

Ho ho holy shit !

The name of the site really says it all... Last Christmas has been collecting for almost two weeks now and the database (which also includes videos) is becoming quite impressive and continues to grow.

Currently, they've already posted 103 covers of the Wham! song (with a total playing time of7hr 8min 37sec) which includes versions by Vietnamese pop hero Dam Vinh Hung, Manic Street Preachers, The Hairy Bottlers, The Three Degrees and -of course- Richard Cheese.

And yes, Blunderpop does know the secret of Christmas cheer:
a funky little jingle deer !

Cover me, cover you

When you're not able to come up with songs of your own, what do you do? You make some covers of course! Sometimes, even that goes horribly wrong. Here are a few examples. Watch and hear bad songs become even worse (and good songs being thoroughly gang-banged).

The Final Countdown - Yes, there's always worse. Europe's video clip at least had a crowd.

Smells Like Teen Spirit - It certainly does. Wow. I'd feel stupid and contagious, too.

Something by Iron Maiden apparently - Words fail me... and the singer as well.

Super Trouper - Psychedelic accordion bonanza, baby!

You're Beautiful - With a sensual Latin twist.

Doesn't all that make you wonder what their own songs sound like? No?

Alive and twitching

Blunderpop still lives, although things are a bit comatose right now. Needless to say, this is your fault. We need your stories to keep this blog up and running. We did receive several comments though, but most of those were either complaints ("why don't you update your blog more often?") or proposals about the purchase of family-sized packs of Viagra. The latter sounds mighty interesting too, we agree, but in itself it's not exactly Spinal Tap. So stop bitching and start writing. Cheers!
