“These Boots Are Made For Walkin'” by Nancy Sinatra

When it comes to the children of great musicians having embarrassingly bad music careers, Nancy Sinatra is right down there with David Cassidy; and frankly, at least David Cassidy could sing. In addition to being extremely poorly written (sample line: ‘You keep lyin’ when you outta be truthin’), this song has a spectacularly uninteresting melody. In the days before auto-tune, they compensated for singers with tin ears or nonexistent ranges by writing two-note wonders like this one, and while a few of them have held up (e.g. “Just In Time”, written for Sydney Chaplin), most of them sound pretty uninteresting to the modern ear.

Verdict: Bad
