100 worst songs

Blenders Magazine came up with a list of the 100 worst songs based on the criteria that they were hits, and weren’t songs that were meant to be cheesy, like Macarena and Who Let the Dogs Out (who, who who who. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

The article says the entry that is most likely to upset people is Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sounds of Silence. They were right. I really like that song, and I’m ticked.

(You’ll notice this article was published back in April and may think I’m way behind the times, but that’s when I wrote this entry. It’s just been a draft for several months)

  2. That’s a good point. I inadvertently got a little Simon and Garfunkel theme running.

  3. Fascinating list. Strangely, I rather like “We Built This City” — if you just pretend that it is NOT being performed by anyone remotely connected to Jefferson Airplane/Starship, and it is some sort of bizarre “one-hit wonder” from an unknown artist, then it’s really a pretty cool sounding tune.
