YMMV / Ray Stevens

  • Acceptable Targets: The #1 with a Bullet album takes two very un-subtle jabs at Japanese. He uses a mocking Japanese Ranguage accent in "A Little Blue-Haired Lady" for no particular reason, and mercilessly pokes fun at their technological advances in "Workin' for the Japanese" (which also uses the accent at the end).
  • Anvilicious:
    • "We the People" hammers the listener over the head with Stevens' conservative Christian views, to the point that even if one agrees with the overall message, it's still pretty irritating.
    • This is nothing new. Witness "America, Communicate with Me" from the early 1970s.
  • Covered Up:
    • He was the first artist to release "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down", which would later become a big hit for Johnny Cash.
    • "It's Me Again, Margaret" was originally cut by its writer, Paul Craft.
  • Fridge Logic: In "Too Drunk To Fish", why did the protagonist bring a shotgun on a fishing trip? It wasn't the drunk that brought it either, considering the line says "grabbed my shotgun"?
  • Second Verse Curse: The last verse of "Ahab the Arab" (beginning with "All of a sudden, the Sultan walked in") is usually cut out. As a result, almost no lyric sites include it.
  • Special Effects Failure: The Laugh Track skips at one point in "The Streak".
