Separated at Birth in Hell

Compare and Contrast: Worst singer/songwriter of the new Millenium, if not ever, James Blunt, with his execrable "Goodby My Lover" (from 2004)--

-- and Derek Stevens, the clueless hasbeen Brit rock star played by Dana Carvey on SNL in the late 80s, with "Choppin' Broccoli."

No kidding, I'm not sure which of these songs sucks more, although obviously Carvey's is a parody. But the similarities are kind of eerie. Hell, Blunt even looks like him.

Blunt's isn't a parody?

I mean--"You touched my life, you touched my soul, love is blind, etc., etc.". Even his big hit about being stoned on the subway train had better lyrics than that.

Either might be a hit for the androgyny kings-- women who dress in drag and lip sync in my neighborhood.

There is more Liza Minnelli in the Dana Carvey parody. Thus, it is more masculine.
