Well, there's dumb dumb and there's fun dumb. Hanky Panky is really fun as is a lot of American bubblegum stuff.

To me really dumb is trying to be serious and just failing. Two prime examples:

A Horse With No Name (America)
In The Year 2525 (Zager & Evans)

Then I start thinking, why does dumb have to be us Europeans ridiculing Americans for their idiocy. Surely there must be some examples of European dumbness. And then it came to me:

The Final Countdown (Europe)

What's dumb though, those are all east coast bands, why the reference to Hollywood?

I'm sure Gene and Paul have been debating the hypothetical marketability of a "Let's Put The X in Xmas" for decades now.

"You really wanna leave that money just lying on the table like that?"

"WHAT money?"

I can't remember what the raison d'etre for that comp was, and a quick Google sheds no light. It may be lost to the ages, possibly for the best. I can't even remember the song we contributed. "Screen?"
