A couple weeks ago Russell blogged about the pain of getting some lame-ass song stuck in your head. We’ve all had it happen to us. Usually it’s some inane pop hit like “Oops I Did It Again” or “Living La Vida Loca”. I started thinking about this dilemma and wondered what would be the worst song to get stuck in your head? I remember a news story once of a guy who rolled his car into the ditch, and was trapped for 48 hours before he was found. When they finally came and pulled him out, they asked him what the hardest part of the ordeal was. He said it wasn’t the lack of food or water, it was that Wham was in his tape deck on auto-reverse and he had to listen to it over and over again till his battery mercifully died 36 hours after the accident. Can you imagine “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” for 36 hours? Seriously, put a bullet in my head before you go-go.
So this leads to the question; What is the “worst” song ever? Now I realize there are different genres of music, so for arguments sake lets say rock/pop music. The list has been compiled several times by various media outlets including VH1 and USA Today. And although there are some differences between each list, there are also some common songs. Here are some that always seem to make the top (or in this case-bottom) ten:
I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred
Every Body Have Fun Tonight – Wang Chung
Achy Breaky Heart – Billy Ray Montana-Cyrus
Heart of Rock n Roll – Huey Lewis
Don’t Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFucking Shoot-Me
Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Douche Bag
But the song that consistently makes the #1 worst song is “We Built This City” by Starship. Starship? Who the fuck is Starship? No relation to Jefferson Starship, right? And what city? San Francisco? None of you were even in the band! Ok Grace Slick was, but for f’s sake….. The city was built on a lot of things, not the least of which is the San Andreas Fault…but you dorks didn’t build shit. Wait though is this really the "worst" song ever? I would rank any of the ones listed above as worse...oh and remember that lame-ass Eddy Murphy song?
Ok…I feel better now.
