A Worst Song Contest

I’ve posted a lot of Songs For the Day around here over the five years I’ve been hanging out on this blog. But today, as the title suggests, it’s time for something a little different. As I drove home from work today, I went through the pre-programmed stations. I have satellite radio and a car that lets me program either 25 or 30 stations. So, there’s a lot of them.

When I got to the station that features 80s music, I heard a song that prompted this idea. I’ll get to that song in a minute.

What are the criteria for this contest?  I think they are the following:

  1. The song had to be popular in its time.
  2. The song had to be wrong then.
  3. And still wrong now.

So, here’s my nominee. This song was released in January 1985. Both the song and the record it was on went to #1 on the U.S. Billboard charts. I hated it then. I still hate it now. It has absolutely no redeeming quality or value to it.

What song is your nominee?

A fellow blogger has invited writers and bloggers to contribute to a 90s nostalgia-themed effort.  While he’s open to just about anything, one of the elements he’d like to see are nostalgic pieces about Nirvana.   I told him that I was more of a Pearl Jam fan and had never really got into Nirvana.  A comment discussion ensued and, as a result, I spent much of today listening to Pearl Jam’s first album.  One of the 26 albums that are on my top 5 albums of all time list.
