Tiny Tim >> God Bless Tiny Tim

Music of the 60's can be seriously weird, and this album is continuing proof of that.  With his high-pitched falsetto voice and ukulele, Tiny Tim is an acquired taste.

The Upstroke >> Porno Groove: The Sound of 70's Adult Films

Put this album on, and see how many of the people around you claim to recognise the music, but aren't quite sure from where.

It's actually quite good.

H.G.Wells Playhouse >> The Time Machine

There are a growing number of audiobooks on Spotify. Some good, some bad. However, how many of them are read by Transformer Decepticon robot, Soundwave? Answer: THIS ONE.

Windarna >> Låt Blodet Flöda

I'm sure there are really complex plot lines and subtexts behind this song. It probably narrates the lyricist's childhood and transition into adulthood, as well as his struggles to learn his place in the world around him.

Thanks to Edalol on Reddit for this one.

Cher Lloyd >> Swagger Jagger

OK so it's not really Cher Lloyd, because her version of this song isn't on Spotify yet. But this is a cover version, in her style, which is just as bad (if not worse). Oh m'darlin, oh m'darlin, oh m'darlin, Clementine..

Kids Rap'n The Hits >> Kids Rap'n The Hits

What's worse than listening to kids singing? The answer to that is listening to kids rapping. I hope their parents are proud.

Shampoo >> We Are Shampoo

Uh oh, we're in trouble, we thought we could sing and release an album. Ah 1995, you were so long ago, but I have such fond memories of you.

Florence Foster Jenkins >> The Unbelievable Glory of the Human Voice

Credited as being "The World's Worst Opera Singer", Florence is a shining example of how, even in the early 20th Century, one can become famous for being really bad at something.

Anne-James Chaton >> Événements 09

Do you like French men spouting random nonsense continuously over a background of repetitive drums and droning vocal effects?  Then boy have I got the album for you!

The Smokin' Hot Babe Lovers >> Songs About Smoking Hot Babes, Vol. 1

There is in fact a 2nd volume of 'songs' about 'smokin' hot babes'. Sadly it ends when they get to L, presumably because the Smokin' Hot Babe Lovers couldn't remember the rest of the alphabet.

Kurt Mambo >> The Return Of Alleinunterhalter

I have a special place in my heart for covers of songs in unusual styles, so it pains me to post this. Spotify says his name is Kurt Mambo, but the album cover says it's Mambo Kurt. Either way, it's full of off-key crooning over casio keyboards.

Oh I'm a Gummybear, yes I'm a Gummybear, oh I'm a yummy chummy funny like a Gummybear. I'm a jelly bear, 'cause I'm a Gummybear, oh I'm a moving grooving jamming singing Gummybear, oh yeah.

Anal Cunt >> 40 More Reasons To Hate Us

Everything about this band is designed to offend. Their name, album cover, titles, and of course the content of the tracks. At least, I think that's the case, but I can't actually make out any of the words to be able to tell.

Captain Dan & The Scurvy Crew >> Authentic Pirate Hip Hop

"The only rap crew with buccaneer technique!" says  I could believe that.  Unless there's some underground scene of pirate hip-hop that I'm unaware of, but that's unlikely.  Ahoy, me homies.

Various Artists >> Hip-Hop Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd's Greatest Hits

Who is this for?  It won't appeal to Lynyrd Skynyrd fans, and it won't appeal to hip-hop fans either.  Did they make the album specifically for this blog?  We'll never know.

E-Rotic >> The Best Of

Trashy German Eurodance from the late 90's will always have a place in this blog. The album cover alone is Not Safe For Work, and the content is just as bad.  Awful.

King Of Bass >> Its Our Generation Collbration Of Bass Hits

"It's possibly the worst "mixing" I've ever heard in my life, and I really have no idea what they're trying to achieve" writes submitter, Craig. "Some golden tracks on the album include Ke$ha, Crazy Frog and Gorillaz all mixed into an inaudible mess complete with a sprinkling of random bass-lines, police radio chatter and sirens." - Play.

Never Mind The Pan Pipes >> Indie Pan Pipe Hits

It's modern tracks by artists such as White Stripes and The Fratellis, but the vocals have been replaced by the Pan Pipes. If I heard this being played by a street band I might be tempted to throw them 50p for the amusement.

Glen Everhart >> The One Putt Strutt - "Motivational" Songs for Golfers

Golf. A serene sport. Just you and the ball. And your club. And the hole, some grass, some sand traps, other golfers, birds, trees, bushes, squirrels, aeroplanes, those fun electric carts... anyway, I digress.
