    as opposed to, say, Nat King Cole or Perry Como?

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

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

    I think it might be more accurate to call it the 50 Most Overplayed Songs of All Time because a lot of why people hate these songs is because they were just played and played and played...

    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.)

    ...that f***ing titanic song sung by that evil horse-faced Canuck.
    I agree on all thirty seven levels of this description. What is the deal with this woman's fame and popularity. She sings through her nose for cryin' out loud!

    I would like to point out that NEW ORDER released a brilliant album only last year. It is called Waiting For The Sirens' Call. Get it.

    So vile it must be watched repeatedly to be believed. [​IMG]
    I have watched it 3 times.....I still don't believe it. Does he actually have a spear in his hand during the Africa portions? Watching this video is like watching a 700lb person walking down the street. You can't believe what you are seeing.....and are left to wonder....how the hell did that happen? Thanks for the link....I am comfrtable in saying I've never seen a worse video in my life.

    How could any Stevie Wonder song be considered amoung the worst?
    I'd say the worst song ever has to be Gangsters Paradise by Coolio.

    Barbie Girl.. Complete utter pish tosh. Then again, there are also many things considered classics which I find to be completely uninmaginative chunks of aural ostrich droppings.

    Hey! She is a Quebecois! Get it right. There is a big fucking distinction between them and us. (‘us’ comprising of the English-speaking part of Canada, you know the ones that don’t want to separate the country in two) Jon.

    i dont know... 'forever your girl' was kind of catchy in the clubs back then. the one with the video of her making out with a cartoon cat was disturbing though.

    and it goes something like this...


    Hi Barbie
    Hi Ken!
    Do you wanna go for a ride?
    Sure Ken!
    Jump In...

    I'm a barbie girl, in the barbie world
    Life in plastic, it's fantastic!
    you can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
    Imagination, life is your creation
    Come on Barbie, let's go party!

    I'm a barbie girl, in the barbie world
    Life in plastic, it's fantastic!
    you can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
    Imagination, life is your creation

    I'm a blond bimbo girl, in the fantasy world
    Dress me up, make it tight, I'm your dolly
    You're my doll, rock'n'roll, feel the glamour in pink,
    kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky...
    You can touch, you can play, if you say: "I'm always yours"

    it goes on and on....

    i know these gags have been done to death, but who the hell thought she would make a good judge for idol. Three crap songs (two above, plus Opposites Attract where she was in love with a cat) on a bunch of failed albums, and thats all it takes to choose (drumroll and Seacreast voice on) the next American Idol.

    Yeah, the lyrics are a real inspiration to aspiring housewives who shall spend the rest of their lives at the mall, at the spa / beauty salon and having "˜lunch'.

    Pathetic.

    What about Bryan Adams? Who's side's he on. He's made some truly awful records, that one from Robin Hood's probably the worst.

    Thank god for Neil Young.
