Spoken word interludes in songs are nearly always bad. So really, the best ones are the ones that are the most worst. Does that make sense?
The most recent comes from Taylor Swift
, but it is literally so bad bad (not good
bad) that we can't bring ourselves to put in on the site (ditto Lana Del Rey
). Scorned women are crazy for spoken word intervals (also see: Alanis Morisette). Here are the top twelve spoken word interludes in songs:
