They Made the "Worst" List

But they're still good in my book. ;)
I'm revealing some of inner-dork here. But yes, I actually do like these songs!

Here is my "They made the list, but I don't think they should be" list:

-#49 Right Said Fred, "I'm Too Sexy", 1992
(Ha! I'm too sexy for this list! So there!)
-#42 Simon & Garfunkel, "The Sounds of Silence", 1965
Their music is just classic. Come on. Forrest Gump agrees.-#41, Billy Joel, "We Didn't Start the Fire", 1989
Puh-lease. This song was, and alwa
ys will be, totally rad.
-#33, Aqua, "Barbie Girl", 1997
Don't know why. The ever-present invitation to party? Hmmm. Maybe more so because my oldest brother (19 years older than me) loved this song. Comical to me.
-#31, Crash Test Dummies, "MMMMMMM, MMMMMMMMMMM, MMMMM", 1994.
No other comment, except it was great because it was so weird. Plus I have memories of hearing it as late as 1999, on a tour bus in Austria!
-#24, Five for Fighting, "Superman", 2000.
Nah. I don't care what the critics say. I like it because of the sentiment of 9/11.
-#20, Lionel Richie, "Dancing on the Ceiling", 1986.
I'm an 80's kid. Who didn't like this song? "Oh, what a feeling..."
-#15, The Rembrandts, "I'll Be There For You", 1995.
FRIENDS. 'Nuff said.-#12, The Beach Boys, "Kokomo", 1988.
Anyone else remember Kermit the Frog singing this?-#5, Vanilla Ice, "Ice Ice Baby", 1990
No way. Without this, Weird Al would've
never done "rice rice baby, to go, to go...". I still play this every once in a while. Oh yea.-#3,Wang Chung, "Everybody Have Fun Tonight", 1986.
Plenty of people still having fun tonight. I think I'll Wang Chung tonight. (ever see 13 Going on 30?)

And now, at the top of what I agree belongs on the worst list:
-"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes (annoying)
-"I'd Do Anything for Love" by Meatloaf. (Gross. He freaked me out.)
-"Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Deep Blue Something. (played way too much)
