Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

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 ..."

Synopsis

Encompassing such categories as "songs people always get wrong," "teen death songs," "songs women hate," and "weenie songs," this musical commentary offers a humorous look at the world's worst lyrics and bad songs in general.

Although I'm not American, I knew many of the Songs he is writing about. Luckily my English was not good enough to understand the texts when I heard them on the Radio. But after reading I could not get the Songs out of my mind. But that is my own fault, the book starts with several warnings that this would happen.

I bought this book on sight, and on the way home started reading it aloud for the benefit of the driver of the car. After a while, I was laughing so hard I could barely keep reading and my abdomen was aching from laughter. Not long after that, the driver pulled over because he was laughing, too.
This book will do your heart good (well, unless you're a Neil Diamond fan); seeing all those wretched songs dealt with as they deserve is a joy; the anecdotes from survey respondents are great, too. This book also gives me hope for the future of America, in view of Dave Berry's report that the antiperistaltic "In the Year 2525" gave rise to the most intense hatred of any song in the Bad Song Survey.

My husband got this book last December and loved it so much that he read has read the whole thing to me, laughing the whole time. We had to buy another copy when we lost the first one. It is an essential reader.
Not unlike main character in the Emperor's New Clothes, Dave Berry helps us to see what we pretended not to see for a long time. And we have fun doing it.
Thanks Dave.

To review a Dave Barry book, one really only needs two words: Dave Barry. Those two words should convey to Barry fans that they are in for more hilarity and deep philosophical insights (such as that The Captain & Tennille's "Do That To Me One More Time" sounds an awful lot like a putdown), while those who dislike Barry are free to remain strapped into their beds at the asylum. "Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs" is an extension of his Miami Herald syndicated newspaper column, and as such it's tried-and-true material. And how could it miss? With songs like "MacArthur Park" lamenting the fate of cakes left out in the rain, the target is an easy one. The most serious shortcoming of this book is that it is far too short and not likely to last more than an hour. But where else can one have this much fun in an hour without actually listening to the "Teen Angel" tale of the girl who jumped in front of a train for a ring?

This book really made my day. I enjoyed reading it so much, I told other people about it. Now that you mention it, Dave, the song "I am, I said" is pretty trite (and then some). And "Muskrat Love" and "MacArthur Park." Thanks for including "Copacabana." I never liked that one anyway (especially the line "Don't fall in love."). Might I add a few from the group Air Supply? "Lost in Love," "All out of love," "You're My Fantasy; you're my reality" and "Here I am, the one that you love." Sorry, but the lyrics in those songs suggest to me a "codependency" relationship ("addicted to love," to quote another title). This book struck a responsive chord, to say the least. Way to go, Barry!

The only bad thing I can say about this book is that it eventually ends. The night I received it I kept the entire household awake with my constant hysterical laughter. Not even threats of physical violence could make me put it down and go to sleep. I've lent it to all my musician friends, and although they, like me, don't agree with the alleged 'badness' of each song attacked herein - I, for one, think Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again..." is terrific (though I CAN see Dave's point) - they all agree that it is top-notch side-splitting can't-put-this-down reading. I only wish it had been something like 2,000 pages longer. I just couldn't get enuff. Dave Barry rocks!

Now I know how much of comedy is TIMING. This tape was HORRIBLE! What might have been funny if read by Dave Barry, or even if I read it myself (if I'd gotten the book), was root-canal-like painful read by Mike Dodge, whose delivery reminds me of every safety training video I've ever heard.
The producers must have known how un-funny his delivery made the material, as they even added "pa-da" drum staccatos to let us know when a joke was being made. If you love Dave Barry, DON'T buy this tape - it'll kill you to hear the material so butchered.

Who can turn what is essentially a topic for a humor essay of anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 words into a full-length book? No one. Not even Barry, who is hilarious. It's as good as a book about bad songs can be, but the subject itself simply doesn't allow it to be a great book. Barry should probably have kept this to an essay in one of his collections, but every author is allowed a couple of less than fantastic books. When he sticks to subjects like turning 40 or cyberspace or Guys, no one is funnier.
