Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs (audiobook) by Dave Barry

Funny, but the book on tape format begged the question - "why not include parts of the actual songs?"

Published by HighBridge in 1999.
Read by Mike Dodge.
Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes.


Yes, I realize it would be a publishing nightmare - trying to convince someone to let you use their song just so you could make fun of it, but it would have been so much more effective!

Oh well, what might have been!

Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs really is a funny book. Dave's quirky sense of humor was effective, as always. I thoroughly enjoyed Dave's list of bad songs and his analytical dissection of the lyrics, especially when I also intensely disliked the song. However, I liked it even more when I actually loved the song ('American Pie' comes to mind)!

I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
