I was diligently slaving away at work this afternoon when it occurred to me: I have no idea what the 50 worst songs ever may be! Fear not; a few clickety-clacks of the keyboard and trusty Google spit out this article to save the day: Run for Your Life! It’s the 50 Worst Songs Ever!
I agree wholeheartedly with many of them. Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” prompts sarcastic, melodramatic performances from my smartass side, and Meatloaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” elicits borderline homicidal tendencies from my juvenile delinquent side. Nothing…and I mean nothing…is more irritating or infuriating than the god-awful, grating song, “Barbie Girl”, inflicted upon us by Aqua, who should be severely punished for introducing that nerve-plucking jangle into my life. The Beach Boys’ “Kokomo” is almost as grueling to listen to. I’m holding my hands over my ears just thinking about it.
I honestly really like some of the songs on the list though! I am secure enough in myself to admit I like Uncle Kracker’s “Follow Me”, and “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel (hey…it’s Billy Joel, okay?) I like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” by Deep Blue Something too.
Come on now…who doesn’t like “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” by Wang Chung? Admit it! I see you mouthing the lyrics right now!
Just don’t tell me you actually like Gerardo’s “Rico Suave”…
