I have always said that Black Betty and Captain Midnight are the worst songs ever written. Black Betty goes, "O Black Betty, O Black Betty, O Black Betty, O Black Betty...."
And Captain Midnight goes, "Captain Miiiidnight, we gonna let it all hang oooouuuuut, Captain Miiiidnight, gonna let it all hang oooouuuuut....."

One of the BEST songs is anything by the Shags. Their song styling is flawlessly unpretentious.
