    Phil Collins only made the list once? Man deserves at least a hat trick.

    Cyndi Lauper...brace yourself for this curse, if the 80's revival ever gets serious.

    On a side note, I was in a store the other day and was reminded of how bad John Denver was.

    As a product of the 80s, I have to stand up for Rick Astley. People still bust on RS for being a skinny white guy with a big black guy's voice.

    On a tangent--the song with the highest potential to be the worse song in history:

    Bob Seger's Old Time Rock & Roll as performed by The Cure

    I have to admit my iPod has a couple of Rick's "hits" on it. [​IMG]

    At one point I had the Aqua cd....as GOOD as the "barbie song" was, there are even better hits by the Danish sensation!

    6. Deep Blue Something, "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

    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.

    so here is vh1's list of 50 worst songs...

    24. Phil Collins, "Sussudio"


    Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
