*Every year for Tera’s birthday I try to find the worst song ever and spoof it for her. Sometimes I can change the name in the song to “Tera” and I always try to sing with the worst voice (both male and female) that I can muster. Just so that it is clear, I am not one of these American Idol singers that don’t know how horrible they are; I know I am horrible, and that is what makes these spoofs funny for us to listen to!
This year I chose “Don’t Know Much,” the horribly terrible 80’s love song duet that somehow made #2 in the top 100 charts and was a global smash hit. What were people thinking back then? It’s just so, so bad.
When you think about it though, there’s just never a time when Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt don’t inspire a truly romantic and sensual evening after a day filled with birthday celebration. Without further ado, here is Tera’s birthday song for this year. Have a listen, if you dare.
By the way, after reading about Linda Ronstadt I learned that she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which is an awful disease and I wish her the very best in her struggle with that challenge. This song, of course, was not meant to mock her or Aaron Neville in any way personally.
