They come to our country /And think they'll do as they please

Blogcritics takes a brief break from its ever onward rightsward march to consider the worst song lyrics ever, taking apart John Mayer, Pete Yorn and others in the process...

I might be a little more impressed with this if they'd taken the trouble to find out that Barry Manilow didn't write 'I Write the Songs'- it kind of detracts from the attacks on him during the article. (It was written by Beach Boy Bruce Johnson)

Glad you mentioned this.

I've been staring at it for a while now. I'm a proud, and very lazy, member of Blogcritics, but this is reminiscent of nothing so much as those lame bloggers who sit there smugly "fisking" some newspaper article or other.

I mean, Steinman! Yes, he is - duuuuuuuuuh - a little overblown. But somehow, crude and overdone bass drums and solos don't get such a prissy reaction (thank God).

Go write a lyric yourselves, milquetoasts. Because at the mo, you're just taking the fiskit.
