The Worst Song I've Ever Heard

musicVanilla Ice's To The Extreme is not a very good album. It was released in 1990 and was the most successful rap album by a white artist since The Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill in 1987.

Thanks to the monster hit "Ice Ice Baby", based on the baseline from Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure," a lot of well meaning people like me ended up with To The Extreme in their CD collections. I don't know how it happened but it did. You had to be there in 1990... it was a strange time.

The final single from To The Extreme was a song called "I Love You" and I believe it's the worst song I've ever heard in my life. I remember it being cringe-worthy bad in 1990 and revisiting it now it's even worse than I thought. "I Love You" is the worst song I've ever heard and it somehow managed to reach #52 on The Billboard Hot 100. It's the worst, hear for yourself.

holy christ, you bought that steaming pile of dog doo. YOu can add that to a collection for your kids of what not to like in music. That is pretty awful. I think I remember hearing that on a soundtrack for a movie somewhere. Was it in any movie around that time?

No thanks, and why would you put your readers through that? We should riot.

I know what you mean, Mike. I somehow ended up with an MC Hammer CD around that time too. Young and impressionable youth I'd say.

I ended up with Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em myself...

It was the pre-Nirvana era.

That's two horrible musical performances in one day... give us a good one at least!

Whatever - like as if you guys didn't love Vanilla Ice when he first came out. It must have been 15 million others that made it the highest selling rap record ever.

Before Nirvana there was Tons of great music. They used to play it on NY back in the day.
