Minicast C2: The Worst Possible Song

A pair of artists use a large market research survey to find out what people say they like least in music and, with their neuroscientist friend, set out to create the worst possible song. Featuring an opera soprano rapping about Wittgenstein, and a chorus of children singing about Yom Kippur at Walmart.  Did they succeed in making the worst song? Let's put it this way: It isn't good. The full song is available here. Check out the series of paintings "Most / Least Wanted" by Komar & Melamid.  Minicasts are short stories for fans of quick, to-the-point podcasts and as a nice change of pace from the longer full episodes of Mass for Shut-ins.
