B-Sides – The Words Get Stuck in My Throat

Post Thumb:


Break out the ear plugs for this week’s B-Sides because we’re heading into the sort of golden throat territory typically reserved for the musical stylings of William Shatner. If you’ve ever seen War of the Gargantuas, you know of the musical horror I’ve dug out.

Kipp Hamilton did a lot of movies and television throughout the Fifties and Sixties but never quite hit it big. Her final credit was the 1968 Toho giant monster movie War of the Gargantuas. In it she appeared briefly as a cruise ship lounge singer who performs a song so dreadful it could have killed anyone’s career. “The Words Get Stuck in My Throat” is so wretched that when the savage green Gargantua appears at the end of the scene to kill her, it’s practically a mercy killing. If only she had gotten stuck in its throat.

Stunningly, Devo performed a cover version of the song in the late Seventies. Not much even they could do to make this song any less of an ear bleeder.

From the swanky Sixties daikaiju romp War of the Gargantuas, here is the late Kipp Hamilton ending her big screen career on a sour note performing “The Words Get Stuck in My Throat”.

    According to the lyrics of this “gem”: “If I had a hidden microphone inside of my heart, I would turn it on..”

    Yeah…. and then we could generate enough feedback to blow a whole the size of Cancun in your fucking chest and spare us the misery of this misbegotten wreck of a song, lady. Holy crap, Foy, do you have an Epic Crap detector you employ for this feature or something? Where do you find this stuff? Based on this video, our course of action is clear: We should master time travel and go back and annihilate the 60’s (like yesterday).

      If you think this is bad just wait until… Ah, you’ll find out in the weeks to come. ***insert maniacal laugh here***

      “Hole”..not “whole”.

      Y’know, for some odd reason my ability to adequately edit anything I post online is mostly theoretical as of late.

      There’s a darn good reason this song is somewhat notorious in b-movie circles and you just experienced it. FYI – the Devo version isn’t much better.
