It's Saturday and time for another installment of the Northern Alliance Radio Network, from noon to 3 pm CT. In the third hour today, we will be debating which pop songs represent the worst of pop music, an argument that started with Blender Magazine's 50 Worst Songs of All Time (complete list here). Blender, however, demonstrated its complete ineptitude by including such songs as "Sounds of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel and "Longer" by Dan Fogelberg. Even if you don't particularly like those songs, you can't argue that they're the 42nd and 30th worst songs of all time!
Here's my list of songs which I will be taking to the AM 1280 The Patriot studio in a few minutes, in no particular order except at #1, which is the worst song of all time, bar none:
1. I've Never Been To Me - Charlene
2. 99 Luftballoons - Nena
3. The Night Chicago Died - Paper Lace
4. Chick a Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It)
5. Me & You & A Dog Named Boo - Lobo
6. Mickey - Toni Basil
7. Bonnie and Clyde - Georgie Fame & The Flames
8. Billy Don't Be A Hero - Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods
9. Don't Give Up On Us Baaaaaay-Beh - David Soul
I've also thrown in "Afternoon Delight" by the Starland Vocal Band, as JB Doubtless and I will defend the savage attacks on this sparkling example of four-part harmony from the rest of the Alliance. "Midnight At The Oasis" may also make an appearance, although I suspect I may find myself alone in Maria Muldaur's defense on that one.
Later on today, I'll blog on why I think "Billy Don't Be A Hero" is John Kerry's campaign theme song ...Sphere It View blog reactions
