Friday Favorite: The World's Shittiest Mixtape.... NOT!

I almost posted this last week for the Friday Favorite, but knowing that I was going to ask people about the most depressing songs they've heard, reposting today seemed like a more ideal solution.

College Humor once again gave me something to ponder. Two guys made a bet about who could make, and I quote "the world's shittiest mixtape", with the loser having to carry a boombox blasting out the entire contents of the contest.

And while I do admire the fact that the loser did go out of the street with a big boombox for the afternoon after losing, I think that both contestants could have done so much more with the challenge.

I mean, in actuality, I would call what they ended up making at best, a lame mixtape, because really, the barrel has so much more crap at the bottom of it and neither party got even close to scraping said bottom.

Paula Cole? Sixpence None the richer? Gloria Estefan? Really... this is the best they could come up with? The whole point of the exercise was not only did the songs have to be bad, but they had to be really embarrassing to be associated with.

Get some polka on that thing... some Tiny Tim, or some really weird found music. There was a lot of ways they could have made a horrifyingly shitty mixtape, and I just think they copped out.

When I started watching the video, I thought something like YMCA by the Village People would pop up or anything disco really. Or what about this. It looked like late summer/early autumn... why not Jingle Bells as performed by dogs. And the world of covers alone could have won that contest. The possibilities seem endless, but the execution was weak.

So, what would you have put on the world's shittiest mixtape?


And in thinking about this post, I can think of so many more warped things that could have been on that tape. I mean, if you went to a dollar store and bought discount cds there, you could probably fill many such tapes with ease.
