Our Favorite Brimful of Asha (Contest)
Saturday, January 5th, 2019

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary Preston!

I should have been writing.

Instead, I said yes when my dd asked whether I’d like to make a trip to Sam’s. Sam’s is an hour away. And an hour back. Inside Sam’s is a world of temptation in big, multi-box glory. We took forever shopping. So, when we wrapped it up, the kids slept in the back of the mini-van while the adults cranked up the Pandora to do some headbanging. And then it was, “Play this!” We went through our hard rock/metal faves—Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie” (I can’t believe how well that song has aged for me!), White Zombie’s “More Human Than Human”, Disturbed’s “Stupefy”—with all of us trying to follow David D’s haunting cantor’s wail (oh my eardrums!).

In the middle of a very satisfying jam, my dd suddenly, joltingly, changed the theme to our least favorite songs, beginning with “Peaches” by The Presidents of the United States of America (which, oddly, we knew all the words to!). But the one that rose to the top of the groans scale was “Brimful of Asha” by Cornershop. Don’t remember it? I bet you’ll wish you didn’t after you have a listen here. And I’ll bet you can’t play it just once. (Ahem, it’s a bit addicting.)

Share your favorite bad song for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card! (“Bad” is all in the eye of the beholder—my daughter can’t understand why I detest Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph”!)

    This is easy for me because this past week I could not get the song “love Will keep us together” out of my head with the passing of the captain. Talk about a sad story on every level.

    I know others like this one but I am not fond of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

    I’m so sorry to say this but Friday by Rebecca Black is so bad! I still listen to it but it’s so bad!

    I agree with Debra about Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer… my grandma would leave the room if it was on…

    Tiptoe thru the Tulips by Tiny Tim is one of the worst from the late 60s.

    I am a huge George Strait fan but I absolutely detest the song “Fireman”. Not sure why but I just dislike it intensely.
    Don’t enter me in the contest, I am Canadian and US amazon cards don’t work on
    But just had to comment

    Any song by QUEEN, but mostly because I have just heard them a trillion times over the years.

    My two least favorite songs were already mentioned… Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer and Tip Toe Through the Tulips. Strongly dislike both of those!
