Try as I did I just couldn’t find anything online as to what I am talking about now:
In the late 70’s we had some album in our [my parents] house that had a country version of Terry Jacks “Seasons in the Sun”. I don’t know who it was by. But if you thought the original was bad you wouldn’t freaking believe the country version train wreck. I promise you I would be thread winner if I could find and post it. It was absolutely unbelievably horrible.
ETA: As long as I am talking about songs I can’t post a link to. When I was in high school (class of ‘79) we used to have an annual talent show. It sucked but got us out of class for the last 3 hours of the day once a year. One year a girl sat at a piano and sang “ The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia”. But she did it to the music and tempo of There’s got to be a Morning After”. It was the most fucked up thing I have ever heard in my entire life. Truly bizarre.
