I asked myself how bad they could be? BAD is the answer. Really, really bad. The first definitely was the worst for me.

Janet said...

those are freakin' hysterical and wicked gross, some at the same time!

holden said...

You mean the best album covers, right?

Hope you're doing well, too...

*Bwahahahaaaa* - thanks for the great laugh! I really enjoyed #13 - I´m German... and I think Heino is our worst export article =)

The cover says:
"Dear mother...
a bouquet that will never fade away"

The blue label:
"A gift for the whole year"

Excuse me while I puke =)

D'oh! Y'know, there are AT LEAST five album covers above that I was PLANNING on using (similar shots) had I ever put out a solo project!

Lori said...

Yikes....Im going to agree with you on this one:) Happy TT.

Amy Ruttan said...

Where oh where did you find those. The first one was disgusting and those Man o wars it's like a bad Conan the Barbarian bit.

Happy TT Candy! I think my headache is turning into a cold. I've been so run down at my evil day job.

DK said...

LOL! These look like Saturday Night Live skits! Thanks so much for the laugh; I really enjoyed it :) Happy TTing!

Wandering Coyote said...

Candy: I cannot find the post you linked containing the short story you mentioned over at my place. Can you please provide a direct link?

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I'm not sure that Boned is real. I think it was a gag, if I remember right (and I may not be remembering right).

Anyway, the rest of those ARE pretty bad, yeah. Makes a convincing argument for the end of the album as we know it.

pussreboots said...

Oh wow! What a TT!!

Gardenia said...

These should make Guiness Book of Records - hope I spelled that right - but uh, Man O War isn't so bad, hahahahahahah............

Anonymous said...

Scary stuff. Absolutely scary.

Happy TT!

Unknown said...

Yeah, I agree. Those are all pretty bad.

Great TT!

Anonymous said...

Where did you find them?

L^2 said...

Hmm... yeah, those are quite odd to say the least!

Malcolm said...

Man, these were hideous! They reminded me of some of the records they used to advertise on TV in the days before cable TV.

Crimson Wife said...

Those are disturbing to say the least...

Happy TT!

JHS said...

Oh, my . . . those beat anything I've ever seen.

Unknown said...

The worst part is knowing someone actually had to create those. They had to spend time coming up with the concept and executing it. And they got paid money for doing so...

Anonymous said...

These are real? Someone thought these would sell records? Ewwww....

Never would have thought of this one. Will you do the best covers ever?

Tink said...

Yuk, most are ridiculous, gross, disgusting or all of that together! Definitely the worst I've seen.
Thanks for visiting my geography TT!

Karen said...

Anyone know where I can get myself a copy of the ManOWar album....mmmm...

Shad Marsh said...

Whoa, not only hideous covers, but some really bad names too...stellar find, oh and I have a request for Ken..

Candy Minx said...

Where did I find these? Wouldn't it be scary if I said I owned them? Nah...

Nancy J. Bond said...

OMG! These really ARE bad...but hysterical. Fortunately (or not) I don't own any of them. :)

Unknown said...

Oh Candy!!! I'm just roaring here in my office. These are a riot!

Jill said...

I think they should stick with their name and a monocolour cover, they would have done much more better job!!

Joy Renee said...

and people got paid for this?

thanx for trying to visit. my TT is up now. 13 Natalie Merchant music videos.

the game theory post below caught my attention too. it reminded me that game theory has implications for story world building and plot development. just that pic reminded me of what it looks like in my head as I consider all the what ifs and the branching off of the potential event lines.

i wonder how they would map the impact of the indecisiveness of an individual caused by the consciousness of the impact of their decisions. but then to not decide is a decision... ok enuf. now the inside of my head looks more like a baskety of yarn the cat's been playing with.

mister anchovy said...

I think some of them are excellent and very creative and fun.

Unknown said...

I just hope you never had to listen to any of them.
