I genuinely dig #4. It's adorable. Reminds me of Daniel Johnston.

I liked that track too. The keys sound like they'd be used for a Genesis era Sonic level.

Track 10 sounds like Jandek. And isn't Track 1 an actual song? It sounds hella familiar, but I can't quit place it.

Oh. Durrrrr. It's "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor.

needs robert popper tag. i could be wrong, but i think these are all him
Yeah, I had no idea who he is but his channel sort of enforces that theory. Oh well, still good.

From Robert Popper's website:

"In the late 1980′s, my cousin gave me a cassette that instantly became an obsession of mine. It was a tape, compiled by a UK record company – and made purely for internal use – featuring the worst songs they’d ever been sent from the thousands of demo tapes they received each year.

There were no details of any of the ‘artists’, and it’s all quite mysterious, but as someone who has heard loads of terrible demo tape complilations, this one is definitely the best/worst. Get ready for the dullest rendition of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, a spooky lady singing about ‘Alfreston’ while playing the organ, and the genuinely terrifying end track, ‘All the People With the Money’. By the way, I lost the tape years ago and thought all hope was lost, until my buddy Peter Serafinowicz found it last week in a box in his office. We celebrated with a listen and a good ole sing-a-long. Hope you guys sing along too…"

So believe what thou will.

If anyone's interested in this kinda stuff, I've got a mix tape of terrible music here: https://soundcloud.com/rape-cassettes/episode-1
You just couldn't call them "Rape Tapes"?

Or "Reel-To-Reel Rape Recordings"
