Black Sabbath: entre piores letras em votação de rádio britânica
A rede World Entertainment News informou em maio de 2007 que “War Pigs”, do BLACK SABBATH, está entre as 10 músicas que têm sido criticadas em uma votação de uma radio britânica para encontrar a pior letra de música já escrita. Outros candidatos na votação da pior letra da BBC Music 6 são “Elevation” do U2, “Champagne Supernova” do Oásis, “Thats Was Then But This Is Now” do ABC, “Rhythm Is a Dancer” de SNAP, “Somewhere Else” de RAZORLIGHT, “Life” do DES`REE, “The Lebanon”, do HUMAN LEAGUE, “Is There Something I Should Know”, de DURAN DURAN, e “Africa”, do TOTO.
Alguns exemplos de porque essas letras são tão ruins, segundo os ouvintes da rádio:
1.ABC - That Was Then But This Is Now
More Sacrifices than an Aztec priest
Standing here straining at that leash
All fall down
Can't complain, mustn't grumble
Help yourself to another piece of apple crumble.
2. Snap - Rhythm Is A Dancer
I'm as serious as cancer
When I say Rhythm is a Dancer.
3. Human League - The Lebanon
Before he leaves the camp he stops
He scans the world outside
And where there used to be some shops
Is where the snipers sometimes hide.
4. Razorlight - Somewhere Else
And I met a girl
she asked me my name, I told her what it was.
5. Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know?
And fiery demons all dance
when you walk through that door
Don't say you're easy on me
you're about as easy as a nuclear war.
6. Oasis - Champagne Supernova
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you when we were getting high?
7. Des'ree - Life
I don't want to see a ghost
It's the sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
Watch the evening news.
8. Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses.
9. Toto - Africa
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless
longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises
like Olympus above the Serengeti.
10. U2 - Elevation
I´ve got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
High and high in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
