Admittedly not so nice visually.  But the singing isn't remotely atrocious.  There are hundreds of "PROFESSIONAL" remakes which are much WORSE!  This doesn't hold a candle to Mrs. Miller's "Lover's Concerto, for atrocity.  The singing on this is better than The Rolling Stones singing "Up On The Roof" and "My Girl".

As the creator of this thread I feel it my responsibility to announce what appears to be in little doubt based on comments received, the winner of this competition by an overwhelmingly majority, Mrs Miller for her rendition of Lover's Concerto. Any member objecting to this should file a full report and evidence to substantiate any claim with 7 days.

Dire, and thats putting it mildly!

If Burt Bachrach were dead, he'd turn over in his grave.  Hard to believe this didn't kill him.  I guess he's never heard it.

Keeping in the Festive Spirit

 

 

Makes me ashamed and embarrassed to be Jewish, and half-Canadian!  A "nice" Jewish boy (who can't sing) "singing" a Christmas song, and very badly, at that.  But, it's music to my ears compared to Mrs. Miller's scourge upon humanity.

Hehe..So is this by the Icelandic Punk Rock group Fraebbblarnir  taken from the 'False Death' E.P.

 I actually had this on 45 in the early 80's and I have absolutely no idea what happened to it-  although that isn't necessarily a bad thing ..

Apparently the band is still active too!

 

Hasn't Björk done any remakes of Soul songs?  They'd be bloody awful, I'd wager.

I dunno Robb and I'm too scared to investigate the matter to be honest! 

Now, i'll more than happily confess that I'm not a fan of The Rolling Stones' music but even I have some erm..sympathy for them when it comes to this Sandie Shaw version of 'Sympathy For The Devil'. 

It actually starts off quite promising..the fat piano sounds great but things quickly deteriorate from there as the drums inexplicably get faster and faster, the bass is all flabby and very possibly played by someone who possesses hooves instead of fingers while Sandie Shaw’s voice is tiny, screeching and utterly unconvincing and sounds like it was recorded late at night in an empty tunnel.

The guitar solos wouldn’t be too bad, except they’re playing all over each other and one sounds more like someone noodling their favourite jazz licks than recording a bona-fide session. 

A mess is putting it mildly...

Mrs.  Miller must have been picked on a lot as a child, and her so-called singing was her way to wreak vengeance upon the rest of the rest of The World's population.  As James Brown would say........  Good Gawd!   AAAAOOOOWWWWW!

Hard to vote.  Her version of "Yellow Submarine" is right up there, as well.  I'd like to hear her version of "Inna Godda Da Vida" , or "Talk, Talk" originally by Music Machine", or something else horrendous to start with.  I think she was capable of even worse than "Lover's Concerto".

Yellow Submarine was a watershed moment.

I reckon it was up there Lovers Concerto too. I already knew YS of course, but couldn't had even told you who LC was originally by.

Well its funny you should mention that Robb as I decided to look up Mrs Miller's Wikipedia page earlier this afternoon.

Here's a quote from it.

She married John Richardson Miller, a professional investor thirty years her senior, on January 17, 1934. They moved to Claremont, California the following year, where she studied music, voice, and composition at Pomona College and involved herself in church and community projects. She said singing was "a hobby", but she produced several records, mainly of classical, gospel, and children's songs. She self-financed and recorded at least one 45 ("Slumber Song"), and distributed it to local orphanages. 

:(

Lol..as if the poor kids weren't already traumatized enough!!

After careful evaluation and a second excruciating listening experience I've come to the conclusion that Mrs Miller is in fact being waterboarded during this recording of Yellow Submarine ..

I'd LOVE to hear some of her Gospel recordings.  Made me picture Hyacinth Bucket singing "Nearer My God To Thee" with Mrs. Miller's voice and style.  Actually, Hyacinth would have sung a Gospel song in more or less that same style, anyway.   🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Yes!  It teaches us that that things always could be A LOT worse!  So, we should relax, and appreciate how good we have it.  Imagine how you'd feel if she were your mother!

Glad to know she had other talents besides singing- "whistling and humming"

IHehe-

think I'd lie and tell all of my mates that I was an orphan who'd been taken in exchange for a record she'd somehow managed to trade at the local orphanage ..:D
