Open Thread: Ridiculous Songs That Were Big Hits

I wonder if there is any one generation that can lay claim to having the most ridiculous songs that became great big hits.  For me, even though the 70s were an awesome decade overall – including the music, there were also some really weird megahits that I look back on now and say “huh?  I liked that?”

Exhibit #1:  Rick Dees and the infamous “Disco Duck.”  This song went to #1 in 1976.  True Story.

Can you top that one?  I’m sure you can.  Every decade had its share of these embarrassing remnants.

This is also an open thread.  What are you up to?

Happy Mothers’ Day

I lost my mother when I was 8 years old.  The vacuum caused by her passing was not filled until the birth of my beautiful daughter nearly 20 years later.  The mother-child bond is something that can be both mystical and painful at the same time.  As mothers, we felt this being grow and move inside of our bodies.  They are a part of us physically.  As our children grow, we hurt for them when we know they are suffering inside, we burst with pride when we know they are experiencing fulfillment, we are happy when they find love. As mothers, we would give our lives that they should live – and our mothers would have done the same.

Wishing all Conflucian Mothers’ a very wonderful day, surrounded by love and family.
