    Pretty good choices. I kinda like the Safety Dance though.

    I don't know that I can really disagree with any of them but I can make an argument for at least another 100 that could be in contention.

    The Rolling Stone is a joke ... not that these songs are great, but just about everything printed in that publication is worthless.

    So does this count as being Rick Rolled?

    Final Countdown is not bad either. I'll take crap for this, but I don't mind Wham either.

    It was a readers poll.

    Mickey was novel and not so bad after you heard it a few times. Rick Rolled is not that bad, just the video. Believe, there were many more worse songs than these. People just blocked them out of their minds.

    This seems like not a list of the worst songs, but the worst ones that still get quite a bit of play today.

    There are some on that list i like from time to time.

    Who the **** reads Rolling Stone anymore?

    Even the editor ripped the selections.

    I'm using my internet powers of divination to determine that, based only on your screen name, you are a Chumbawumba fan. Therefore, your opinion is void.

    Safety Dance and Mickey shouldn't be anywhere near that list.

    The fact that there's nothing from Miami Sound Machine, Warrant, Debbie Gibson, New Kids, or the gems from crossover wannabes like Don Johnson and Eddie Murphy renders that list a complete and utter joke.

    What is a Chumbawumba? I am a Chewbacca fan.

    Chumbawumba is Chewbacca's annoying nephew. Kind of like Scooby and Scrappy Do.

    Sorry, but if Falco never wrote "Rock Me Amadeus" you don't have one of the greatest Simpsons moments*:

    Troy McClure (as Col. Taylor): "Can I play the piano anymore?"

    Dr. Zaius: "Well of course you can!"

    Troy McClure: "Well I couldn't before!"

    *I would post a video, but none of the ones on YouTube are in English!

    Its clearly not a "worst" list, and more like a "what songs are you completely sick of" list.

    And in that case, Pour Some Sugar On Me should absolutely be on it.

    I take JT singing this (Wham) over Neil Diamond. Not to hijack the thread.

    I nominate Run DuMbC "Walk this Way." Hated the Aeroschmidt version and a rap version is definitely not an improvement.

    I can't really dispute that list. Most of those songs were craptastic.
