I’ve Never Been to Me
Highest Billboard Position:
#3 in 1982
At least with most of the songs on this list, we have a pretty good idea what their points are. With Charlene’s 1982 One Hit blunder we just don’t know understand what her point is; or what she is whining about.
In her sappy song, “I’ve Never been to Me”, Charlene sings of all the wonderful exotic places she has been to and the wonderful things she gets to do, yet she is unsatisfied as she has never “been to me”. She’s kidding right? All those cool things she gets to do sucks? On second thought, maybe we do know what her point is, as the bridge before her final chorus basically goes into how wonderful it is to be a mother, a wife and your ordinary basic housewife, and that is the true paradise. Really? Paradise for who exactly? Our bet is that 90 percent of the housewives who listened to this song tuned out the last part and focused on how wonderful it would have been to go to those worldly locales. She’s never been to herself? Masturbation can cure that.
