Today’s Video: “One-hit Wonders” - Morris Albert

We continue our video theme this week of “one-hit wonders” with a song from Morris Albert. In 1975, the Brazilian scored a major hit with the soft-rock ballad “Feelings.” The song’s Wikipedia entry notes that it “frequently appears on lists of ‘the worst songs ever’”. In my opinion, it’s hard not to see why as it is a terribly bland and coma-inducing tune. Anyway, listen for yourself.

“Feelings” has since been covered by numerous artists like Frank Sinatra and Shirley Bassey. Certainly the most unique cover is this one by Beaker on “The Muppet Show.”
