Blender's 50 Worst Songs Ever

musicBlender has listed the 50 worst songs ever. It's fun to agree with lists like this, but it's even more fun to disagree. Below are seven songs I enjoy that made Blender's list.

  • R.E.M. - Shiny Happy People - C'mon Blender, is this one really so bad? True, it's not the best R.E.M. song out there, but even their crap is better than a worst fifty list.
  • Crash Test Dummies - Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm - Perhaps it's my Canadian bias at play here, but I don't mind this song. Of course, when I hear it, I usually envision Conan singing it.
  • The Doors - The End - I have two words for Blender: Apocalypse Now.
  • Corey Hart - Sunglasses At Night - Again, my Canadian bias is outraged that this song made the list. Even worse, they call Hart a one hit wonder. Not on this side of the border!
  • Spin Doctors - Two Princes - Who didn't like this tune? It was huge during my final year of high school. Good times, good times...
  • 4 Non Blondes - What’s Up? - Dare I say this isn't just a decent song but a great song. Sing it with me people, and I SING hey-YEAH-YEA-EAH, EAH HEY YEA YEA...
  • Wang Chung - Everybody Have Fun Tonight - Do I really need to explain why I like this song. Frasier will take it from here. "I was listening to a rock and roll station on the way over here, and I think the lyrics to one of those tribal chants applies to this evening: 'Everybody. Have fun tonight. Everybody. Wang Chung tonight.'"

I'm okay with the other 43 selections. What say you?

Blender's list was ridiculous. My general impression is that the people who created the list have decided they're just too cool for anything that could remotely be called Pop. If these songs were so bad, why were they hits when they came out, and why do we still talk about them today?
