"My Sweet Lord" was among the songs most regularly used for torture in Chilean prison camps under the regime of Gen. Augusto Pinochet.

 

So what do you guys think about this? Thought it was worthy of it's own thread than a post in the Beatles news section

Why choose My Sweet Lord when there is a ton of tortune tunes just from TV Talent shows. Cheeky Girls is dreadful, how about some Pop Idol hell.

I can see it now Cbatcu, tho to make it worse instead of the above we get to listen to the complete A/B Road bootleg; 2 hours of The Long And Winding Road rehearsals would be enough to get most to sell their countries secrets or renounce lifelong held beliefs.

However the below would have me singing like a Canary within 10 seconds, I truly hate this song with a very fierce passion. One of the worst pieces of music I have ever heard, the above is sweet sweet music when compared to this.

Just mail the trophy to me. I'd like to thank the Academy and all of the little people who made this possible.

Ah, but when there's sweet torture to be dished out, there's always... this...

So I take it you actually DID listen to this whole thing? Even in my experimental years listening to music, I wouldn't have sat through it.

Although that might not be the worst thing Lou's ever done... not when there's this...

I hope this isn't the only thread from this forum that survives to the year 3013.
The song that came up on my mp3 when I typed the first sentence. It took me a moment to make the connection.

"I'm So Tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm So Tired, my mind is on the blink"

"'ll give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind"
