Rising to the challenge, I now present my submission for Shittiest Mix Tape*. Here are five songs that are crappy in their own right, to be sure, but played in a mix, on a 50 pound boombox, outside the Powell Street MUNI station? Well, that would surely be an invitation for an ass-kicking:
Man of Constant Sorrow—The Soggy Bottom Boys feat. Dan Tyminski. I know there are people out there that dig this kind of music. And people out there that didn't know they dug this kind of music until they saw O Brother, Where Art Thou? This song sucks. I'm not feeling it.
See the rest of the list after the jump!
Off On Your Own Girl—Al B. Sure (aka UniBrow). All shitty mix tapes need at least one New Jack Swing song. Mr. Falsetto is now hosts a "quiet storm-type" radio show on a soul station in Oakland, Cali. At least he can say he's still "heard" on the radio.
Anyone else care to list their "Top 5?"
*as soon as I get word from iTunes that my iMix is up, I will post a link. (Update: They won't post my iMix because my title "Shittiest Mix Tape Challenge" violates their T.O.U. What EVER.)
