    First let me say...I and at least one other cool member of this fine board REALLY like this group called Doug and The Slugs. They were a group that got a lot of regional radio play in central Canada (and with a decent AM radio:smile: the upper Midwest in the US) -- Finger and toe-tappin' kinda DO-WHOP music that you could sing along with and was really cool...UNTIL:eek:

    I found one of their old videos on YouTUBE!

    YouTube - Doug & the Slugs - Who Knows How to Make Love Stay

    Now you have to remember - they did the song in 1982 but probably didn't do the video until at least a year or more later...SO CUT THEM SOME SLACK but this is so cheezy, so BAD - I can't think of another '80's video that's WORSE. Now remember - the early '80's had really low production values...but this one MIGHT set the standard! (mostly because it incorporated the Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligans Island, took a right turn back to Groucho Marx then ended up back in Star Trek- ALL OF WHICH APPARENTLY had absolutely NOTHING to do with the actual lyrics of the song.) ANYWAY - enjoy!

    BTW - This is NOT a knock on "Doug and the Slugs" - actually one of my favorite old LP bands - (CHECK MY GALLERY for proof!) and I was sorry to learn by "wikipedia":frown1: Doug Bennett died in '04 - rest in piece my friend! I'll always remember you at the Agrodome in '01!!! PEACE!!

    Uh---VH1 once carried a video of William Shatner doing "Proud mary" the effect which cannot be conveyed by words alone.

    If people ask, I can dig up something even worse, but audio only....

    One can only imagine, I would love to have seen that....People take the piss out of old Bill, yet I always liked this song with William Shatner, it's actually decent.....

    They are bad huh, although the Beyonce video bootleg is hilarious....funnily enough the real original Birdie song was some Swiss accordion oompah song I think....major cheese...Swiss cheese...heh.

    I think it was Leonard Nimoy that did the horrible cover of "Proud Mary". But since Shatner did the hilarious "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Rocketman", anything is possible.

    They used to play his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds so often on the radio when it came out, and it was like stabbing my ears with, jagged, knives, repeatedly, stopping, starting, stabbing!

    I'm not going to search out the URL here, but Florence Foster Jenkin's version of Mozart's Queen of the Night is consider the highlight of low interest.

    Garth, we use to love Doug and the Slugs. Went to a show of their's at the Commodore Ballroom in the mid 80's. But ja, that vid is bad.

    WOW! I sincerely....SINCERELY! apologize for that last response (little drunk honey - SORRY!:redface:) but I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from now that I've digested the gist of your previous link...and this vid TOTALLY reminds of your country's WORST abomination...Celine Dion! I have NO APPRECIATION from that ingrate french C*NT! (* - decorum prevents me from including the second letter - WHICH IS a "U"!! hate Celine...HATE HER!)

    This might be news to you hosers! The CHICKEN DANCE completely belongs to the United States! End of story!
    Look Cray - I know you're cute and I like you but now you're stepping on lines that don't help anything...(I suspect you're doing it just to ratchet up the cyber-tension to our relationship (grrr!)) - I might also be wrong about that and feel free to kick my ass to the curb about this thread but I think we all can agree...FRENCH PEOPLE are really annoying! :tongue: (the only thing they have going for them is girls with hairy pits - which I find mildly interesting...but that's ANOTHER story:cool:)
