Top Ten Worst Song Lyrics of 2007

1 of 10

by Linda Leseman

10. The Killers with Lou Reed, TranquilizeTranquilize kicks off this list with its overly cerebral attempts to be profound resulting in pseudo-intellectual murkiness. (For closer analysis of this song, click here.) The lyrics make as much sense as a Dadaist poem. Gems such as Money talks when people need shoes and socks, steady boys, I'm thinking she needs me and Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain, We began the weeping and wailing are as clear as frosted glass washed up on a Galveston shore. For an added bonus, the music video depicts something along the lines of a failed sance to channel Bohemian Rhapsody. The Killers originality never ceases to stupefy.

The not-so-good, the bad and the really freakin' stupid
