Yeah, especially that last one. It truly blows.  :laugh:

Nothing makes me cry more than the ending of this film.
The uncertainty, rebelliousness and liberation together are just so powerful.

He just wanted this one simple thing the whole movie and he gets it, but what next? So emotional.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

The worst song I have ever heard is very popular in Korea, and that song is LEMON TREE....Why? because I've heard it probably no less then a hundred times. 

The older English co-teachers I've worked with think this is a popular and wonderful pop song we all know and the kiddies should know as well.  In every school I've worked in..(elementary/middle/high) the teachers think this is a cool tune...a lot of them have used it for their open classes.

Lemon Tree is a song that will be played if/when I go to hell.  Its my "Easy Street"....

I remember when this came out and the ensuing outrage. I listened to it and it sounded like every other piece of schlock being passed as music in those days. No better, no worse...same same but different.

Not sure I agree, I just listened to it and it really does sound like it was written by the weakest group in a let's write a pop song school project.  This mindless 90s effort with a similar theme is like Bohemian Rhapsody in comparison.

Lol, Korea was actually the first time I'd ever heard it. I actually asked my old co-teacher about it and she said she thinks some Korean celebrity did a cover of it awhile back or something. Maybe on a show? Not sure....or maybe it was a popular lesson that used to be passed around on Waygook back in the day XD

For some reason, I recall (as a lurker, not a poster) someone on Dave's ESL Cafe, saying that one could use the Scientific Method and prove that this was one of the worst songs EVER....

I don't agree but I thought it was funny....

However, THESE two...yeah, I'm positive it could be scientifically proven that they suck....(funny thing, I saw a "gang" of Korean "bikers" blasting  bobbing their heads to the first song, in which someone had playing on their moto-stereo...waiting fore green light).

Every time I hear Phil Collins I have a diabetic attack.
