Good Song or Bad Song? King of the Road

Did you know there are people who find this jaunty little tune annoying? Whenever I hear King of the Road, I just want to grin and snap my fingers, but I was shocked to learn that it makes some people grit their teeth.

What say you: good song or bad song?

  1. Not just good… it’s genius. :-)

  2. Good song. Nice voice.

  3. Oh, that’s not a good song…that’s a GREAT song.

  4. A true classic. The combination of the casual, jaunty tone with lyrics about poverty is like the sort of thing Brecht and Weill were famous for, but this has a real unpretentious American quality.
