Vote Now on the Semi-Finals of Creepiest Song of the 70’s.

First, we pit death against death.  In the first song, “Honey” by Bobby Goldsboro (yes, I know it came out in the 60’s, but it was still a creepy song in the 70’s, wasn’t it?), a man mocks his wife for being dumb and then gets his neck hugged by her.  Then (SPOILER ALERT!)  she croaks.  No more neck hugs for you, mister.  Honey’s opponent is “Timothy” by The Buoys.  In this fun number, the title character gets trapped in a mine with two other dudes and they get really hungry.  I’m talking Yom Kippur hungry.  So they eat Timothy.  Oy!  Vote now and vote often — we’ll be crowning our champion before the year ends!  SCROLL DOWN AND VOTE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THIS PAGE!

You can hear both songs here:  HONEY/TIMOTHY

And don’t forget the lyrics (try as you may): HONEY/TIMOTHY

    I don’t know, Honey has the whole falsetto thing going for it. I think this’ll be a close one.

    Just in case anyone cares, “Cat’s in the Cradle” is NOT a children’s song. Harry Chapin intended for the song to be a commentary on father-son relationships, when a father has no time for his son. This is not a “messed-up kids song,” its a warning to parents who don’t have time for their children.
