Default Worst songs of all time?

http://kenlevine.blogspot.com/2012/0...-all-time.html

Found this in the internet.
Some of the most memorable and popular songs ever are considered to be among the worst songs of all time.
If the link works, look at the list and explain why you agree or don't agree with certain selections for the title. (Actually though I have my own opinion as to which songs are good candidates for the label, I am amazed at how many really good (underrated) songs end up on the list. I just wonder who the person thinks s/he is deciding this).

I agree with a lot of songs on that list but not all of them especially "Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" -Gordon Lightfoot. How can that tribute be on the list? I'm appalled! But everyone has different tastes. I have to agree with him that "Honey " -Bobby Goldsboro is one of the worst! He neglected to include all of those awful car crash death songs of the early 60's. "Last Kiss","Tell Laura I Love Her" and Teen Angel.

Shouldn't this be on the music board?

He managed to hit my un-favorite, Mary McGregor ' s " Torn Between Two Lovers."

Some of the listed songs I like because they're bad but fun enough to be good, such as Karma Chameleon. Some of the ones I think are okay songs are on the fringes of country and I wonder if he's not interested in that little area of music - Watching Scotty Grow, Everyday House wife, and Ruby (and especially O.C. Smith's Little Green Apples).

Edmond Fitzgerald is a good song.

I agree with many of the songs on this guy's list, however I disagree with these:

The Night Chicago Died
Wildfire
Indiana Wants Me
Seasons In The Sun
Torn Between Two Lovers
Tin Man
Wham Bam (Shang A Lang)
Aint No Way To Treat A Lady
Touch Me In The Morning
Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song
Chick A Boom
Please Mr. Please
Feelings
Chevy Van

I disagree because all of the above are included in my hits of the 70's collection. A few of these tunes might be a tad on the cheesy side, for example The Night Chicago Died, Indiana Wants Me, Torn Between Two Lovers, but these are still quality songs, they are memorable 1970's hits and in my opinion all of them belong on any comprehensive 70's hits collection.

Someone responded to the guy's list and mentioned the Melanie tune Brand New Key as being one of the worst. I disagree with that one too, yeah her singing isn't great but it's a fun song and any 70's hits collection is incomplete without it's inclusion!

I liked these from his list:

Yummy Yummy Yummy....1919 Fruit Gum Co.

Wildfire...Michael Murphy
Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald....Gordon Lightfoot
Heartbeat is a Love beat -- Delfranco Family
Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town....Kenny Rogers
Wam Bam (Shang-a-Ling)….the Silvers
Mmmmm Bop...Hanson
I am Woman…Helen Reddy

However, some of the others were just sort of "OK" and probably didn't belong on the list.

"Drink A Beer", "Honkytonk Badonkadonk" and "I Love This Bar" should all be on this list.

Oh, and any list like this that doesn't include "The Superbowl Shuffle" by the Bears in '86 needs updating!!

"Drink a Beer" I don't think I've ever heard. "Honkytonk badonkadonk" I agree with, easily one of the worst country songs ever. I actually like "I Love This Bar" by Toby Keith but "Red Solo Cup" I can do without.

(You're) Having My Baby- yeah that one is cheesy too and Paul Anka does some bad singing in that song, but it's also a memorable hit from 1974 so it's included in my collection.

In The Summertime- that song is OK, I like it and it's also included in my collection as a bonus track, not part of the main collection.

Rock On- I used to dislike that song too but over the years it grew on me so I included it in my collection, but again as a bonus track and not part of the main collection.

As soon as I saw The Night Chicago Died towards the top of the list I knew the list sucked.

Besides, today's music is so hideous even the bad songs on that list are better than any rap or technocrap they have now.

Two of the absolute worst, IMO:

"Boot Scootin' Boogie," Brooks and Dunn
"I'll Be There For You," The Rembrandts (not only in its long version, but also as the title track of Friends [1994-04 NBC comedy that I never cared for anyway])

The Night Chicago Died is a cheesy tune, but it's also one of the classic hits from 1974 and I think any 70's hits compilation would be incomplete without it.

The 70's had it's share of cheesy songs, but in my opinion there's good cheese and bad cheese. Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jacks is an example of good cheese, Rocky by Austin Roberts is an example of bad cheese.

The problem with much of today's music is that people seldom bother to write decent songs now, it's become mostly style and attitude instead of substance. Occasionally some good music comes out, but the majority of it is garbage.
