Give It Up, Billy!

I just heard Billy Idol's new single, "Scream" (by accident, honest). It could possibly be the worst song I have ever heard. I could go on for pages about what makes this song so bad, but my words would never measure up to the true awfulness of the real thing:

You can fill my cup
You can fill my bowl
This train is ready to roll
Your eyes of fire
Have stole my soul
Still coming back for more

You are the lock
I am the key
Climb up my lemon tree
You are the one
You're on your knees
You are my little queen
You know just what I mean
Climb up my lemon tree

Does it get any less original than "you are the lock, I am the key?" And what's up with the lemon tree metaphor? Is that some new penis slang that I'm unaware of (seriously - email me, I don't want to be out of touch). Or is that just Billy's confusing way of telling us he's into golden showers?

Then there's the chorus:

Make me scream
All night, all night long
Gonna get extreme
All night, all night long
Make me scream
All night, all night long
Gonna get obscene
All night
All night long
All night
All night long

Ok already, we get the point... You're gonna go all night. Thank science for Viagra!

Give it up, Billy! Couldn't you have just lived happily off your "White Wedding" royalties and left us all alone? Please, go crawl back to whatever rock you've been hiding under for the last 12 years.

Anyone who still uses the word "extreme" in a serious manner is seriously out of touch. The only place I see "extreme" used anymore is in deodorant ads and on Fox Kids on Saturday mornings. I mean really "Gonna get extreme." No, no you're not. You're going to get laughed at and forgotten.
