The Worst Song I've Ever Heard


Vanilla 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.
