Subject: Worst Song Battle: "You Light Up My Life" vs. "Disco Duck"

Written By: woops on 01/28/05 at 8:50 pm

IMO, both are two of the all time worst songs I've heard...  :P

I thought "You light up my life" was an almost blacked out memory until Leann Rymes remade it.

"You Light Up My Life".  I rather like "Disco Duck"  :-[   It's stupid and all, but I think that's suppose to be the point of the song.

"Disco Duck"  is a great disco dance number.

You said it, Mark!  I cannot stand that song!!!  :P

For the poll, I voted for Rick Dees (although I kinda get a kick out of the song).  :D

I've heard the record a few times. Rick Dees used to be a disk jockey on KIIS FM (a station in the Los Angeles area) for a long time; I listened to him for a time during the 90s. I even knew his son Kevin when I was in 3rd grade.

'You Light Up My Life'

I heard that when Weird Al Yankovic was in college and was a radio DJ, he used to take all these copies of this song and scratch the needle over them right on the air.

Without a doubt - the young Boone...

The British exhibited supreme good taste on this one - it barely left a mark on our charts...not that it didn't get more than its fair share of airplay, tho'...

It was also very good at bringing parties to a shuddering halt...!

I kind of liked You Light Up My Life when it first came out but it was played SOOOOOO much I quickly became sick of it. 

Disco Duck is cool thou.  :D

Disco Duck was a fun comedy song as for Light Up My Life on the other hand was romantic and serious.

I picked "Disco Duck." "You Light Up My Life" was overplayed. I remember hearing it as often as every 30 minutes on the radio, which is why I got tired of it. I remember "Feelings." Not a very good song...

Even now, at the age of 40, I find myself uncontrollably breaking out into song with "Disco Duck". Much, however, to my children's chagrin... ;D

Ironically, according to Billboard, You Light Up My Life was the Number One Pop Song of the Seventies, having spent more time at the top spot than any other song in the Top 40. 

I hate both the songs as much as the next guy.

However, "Run Joey Run" by David Geddes gets my vote as the worst pop song of the 70's, maybe ever.

They both have worst song qualities.  But now that I think of it Debbie Boone to me sounds worse than nails on a chalkboard! :P
