I recently bumped into the worst video in the world. And then I found that the artist had MORE. And then I went on a quest. While I was dredging YouTube for its finest new talents the past few days, it seems that my fellow bizarros were on similar tangents. I’ve seen the worst of things show up here and in other bizarro circles while my hunt continued. I like that we’re on the same wave. So in the spirit of the best of the worst, here are my offerings from my search:
Leoncie. This woman is amazing. Just. Amazing. She is where I began my journey. She’s not quite sure what being a vegetarian is all about, but she’s willing to be one, and a ho about it at that. She’s disabled embedding, so you’ll have to click links. But they’re worth it. Here’s a screenshot from her love song about Rocky (who apparently drinks a lot and then has to train in the morning) The pic will take you to the video:
Facebook led me to this next performer. The poor girl who posted this on another friend’s wall had no idea she was feeding the flames of my worst video fires. She introduced me to Norma Lee. You HAVE to watch this woman’s videos. All of them. She sings, spreads wisdom, and even lip-synchingly sings along to her own songs. Here are some of my favorites:
I am Not an Old Doosh Bag:
He’s Swapping his Boat:
And a version of what started it all, Ask Jesus to Sit on Your Heart. She also tells us about the magic of GOOD Amish Bread, and sorta gives us a tour of her yard. And offers us a cookie:
After Norma Lee, I just started trolling new artists. Here are some that I really REALLY like:
Forever Amor- Dzyre
My Peace- Martha Reed Garvin
My Return- Big White Forreal
Set it Off- Heartbreak
Did I Touch You- Ed Slater
This dude has a bunch of names, including a French one he doesn’t translate exactly correctly. I don’t know if you actually WANT to make it to his singing. He’s totally tough though, so if you want to see how to be really tough, it’s a good nine minutes to spend doing that:
I found more. Many, many more. But I’m sure this is a good enough sampling. For now.
My thanks to these artists for entertaining me.
