50 Worst Songs Ever

So, a while back someone put the song "We Built This City" in my head. And then for some reason I was googling it and I came across Blender's 50 Worst Songs of All Time. OMG... there are some guilty pleasure songs of mine on this list, so I thought I'd discuss...

#50 - Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On"
I have to admit, this is a guilty pleasure song of mine and I've got it in my iTunes playlist (that and the South Park version). I don't listen to it anymore (current play count since January is 3), but I kinda do like the song...

#49 - Right Said Fred, "I'm Too Sexy"
This is Dave's song, LOL. I agree that it's a bad song, but in a good way. Know what I mean?

#46 - New Kids on the Block, "Hangin' Tough"
Oh, come on, "The Right Stuff" wasn't cheesy enough?

#44 - Meatloaf, "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)"
Uh oh. Another guilty pleasure song. I don't have it on mp3 and haven't heard it in years, and I was ashamed that I liked it even back when it was new... I can't believe I'm mentioning that I like this song.

#43 - Uncle Kracker, "Follow Me"
At Cancun Cantina, circa 2001 or so. This song was on.
Kim: This song is an ok song.
Chris: No. No, it's not.
Kim: It reminds me of getting up in the morning for some reason.
Chris: And then what? Shooting yourself in the head?
Maybe Chris has better taste in music than I do.

#42 - Simon & Garfunkel, "Sounds of Silence"
I've never liked this song, but I must say that I am shocked to see Simon & Garfunkel on the list.

#40 - Color Me Badd, "I Wanna Sex You Up"
Another album I'm ashamed to say I own. But, you know, I was in the 7th grade when this was out. But, I love how the Blender article says that Color Me Badd "looked like rejects from a Benetton ad and sounded like flunkies from the Keith Sweat School of Horny Jamz." LOL!

#39 - Ricky Martin, "She Bangs"
... a great line dance at Cancun Cantina. That is all. I am relieved to hear this song done by Ricky Martin and not what's his name. You know who I'm talking about.

#38 - Rednex, "Cotton Eye Joe"
Yep, go to Cancun Cantina and see dances performed to any number of cheesy songs.

#34 - Dan Fogelberg, "Longer"
I don't care for the song, but Blender's description cracked me up. That's how I feel about Kenny G.

#28 - John Mayer, "Your Body is a Wonderland"
Don't get me wrong, I LIKE John Mayer, but am I the only one that gets creeped out by a lot of his songs?!

#23 - Corey Hart, "Sunglasses at Night"
The CD that I have that has "We Built This City" on it also has this song on it. I put it in my CD player once in the car and you'd have thought I was hitting Dave with a taser.

#22 - Toby Keith, "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American"
Ugh. Ok. In November of 2001, Jess, Vicki and I went to see Toby Keith perform at the Naval Academy. It was awesome. The midshipmen were there. Toby Keith had JUST written this song. It hadn't been released and he wanted the first time he sang it in public to be for the military and this is where he did it. Which is really cool. And I have to admit that the first time I heard it I was like "HELL YEAH!! SHOW THOSE TERRORISTS WHO'S BOSS!" Fast forward to 2006 and I'm tired of American ignorance and war and celebrations of violence and I now disagree with the entire premise of this song. But, it was good for me for a while.

#21 - Spin Doctors, "Two Princes"
I like this song, and I'm not going to apologize for it.

#16 - 4 Non Blondes, "What's Up"
When I was in Lucerne, Switzerland in high school, we were walking around and heard this song being performed. We walked into a bar and swore up and down that it was actually 4 Non Blondes - the real band - and not someone just doing the song. I'll still never know, but regardless, this song always reminds me of that trip.

#12 - The Beach Boys, "Kokomo"
OMG. I really don't like the Beach Boys. I admit, sometimes, I hear a Beach Boys song at an appropriate time (at a beach) and get kind of into it and enjoy it. But, the vast majority of the time, I don't like them. Especially "Good Vibrations" and "Kokomo." Kokomo is the worst song ever. I would have put this in the top 10, but whatever.

#7 - Bobby McFerrin, "Don't Worry, Be Happy"
What, another song from the Cocktail sountrack? Shocking!

#5 - Vanilla Ice, "Ice Ice Baby"
Oh come on, this song is bad in a good way.

#2 - Billy Ray Cyrus, "Achy Breaky Heart"
This song is good because it introduced the world to country line dancing. This song is BAD and VERY VERY VERY BAD because every frickin' moron that hates country music uses this song as the reason that they hate it. In other words, if you only know ONE country song, THIS IS THE PIECE OF SHIT SONG YOU KNOW. And that sucks. For the record, this song came out in 1992 and I haven't heard it played on country radio since 1993. They DON'T play it at Cancun Cantina, and I have a feeling that if they did, everyone would walk out. Country people DO NOT listen to this crap. But, I'll never convince some people of that fact and so this is just some random scar that country fans carry around. Suck.

#1 - Starship, "We Built This City"
Yeah, this song sucks. I would argue that there are worse songs on the list, but that's ok. Right now, First Mariner Bank has a commercial where they say "We Built this Bank..." and that's it. And it's on in the morning, and it puts this song in my head for the entire day. Damn them.
