music: macarthur park, richard harris, jimmy web, lyrics

"Someone left the cake out in the rain/
I don't think that I can take it/
'Cause it took so long to bake it/
And I'll never have that recipe again""

"MacArthur Park" is a song written by Jimmy Webb, first recorded by Richard Harris in 1968.

ive heard this song before but i really didnt care until this was sang in a noontime show with the lyrics flashing at the bottom of screen. the song started cheesy like most ballads and peaked at the chorus with that memorable line above. when i heard the "cake-recipe" part i was like... "ha??!!what was that??!!"

from wiki, this song has been voted "as the worst song ever recorded, both in terms of "Worst Lyrics" and "Worst Overall Song".

i actually like it! im listening to donna summers cover right now.
