I really don't see how this fits, but I acknowkledge my bias towards it. Most of those other songs are on my big list of 'if the band plays this at my wedding, they will die' list.

It's funny, because I always thought "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was a mediocre song (not one of the world's worst). However, I thought the DBS album was actually pretty solid. Of course, as far as I know, they were never heard from again.

1. Starship, "We Built This City"


These are not even among the 50 worst songs of their respective release years. Hell, they're not masterpieces, but if any of them came on the radio, I'd sing along.

Ditto, but I'm an 80s dork. I think I have 50% of the songs on that list.

I think age has a lot to do with it -- there's the nostalgia effect that colors your appreciation of a pop song. I'm sure my parents have the same affection for the inane "Itsy-Bitsy Teenie-Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" that I do for "Afternoon Delight".

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun...

Yeah, today's crap can't hold a candle to "Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer" or "Hot Diggity, Dog Diggity".

Tiga and Zyntherius's remix of Hart's "Sunglasses" wasn't too bad.

That's still no excuse for omitting the execrable Mambo Nr. 5, or that fucking titanic song sung by that evil horse-faced Canuck.

Also, I really wonder about "Breakfast at Tiffany's" being so high. I don't love the song but it wouldn't occur to me that it should fit on a list of the worst any number of songs, either. I can think of other songs from the same season of the same year that are worse. The Verve Pipe's "Freshmen" for instance.

Besides, couldn't they at least have done something ironic, like tweaking Sasha Frere-Jones by putting Britney Spears' "Toxic" in there? (Even though he's right; it's a great song.)
