The Worst Songs Ever (way off topic)

Not even remotely software related.  In the past day or two I swear I’ve heard all of the worst songs ever recorded. 

  • “Super Bowl Shuffle” – Chicago Bears 1985 team.  The only stain on the best single season football team in my memory.  I’m pretty sure we did some kind of act around this at my 6th grade talent show.

  • “Convoy” – Go check out the lyrics if you’re brave.  This loser was an actual hit in the 70’s.  That, shag carpet, and puke green and brown decor give the 70’s my vote as the worst American decade

  • Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” – Ouch is all I can say.  Cheeziest song of all time.

    Great call on “Convoy” – the 70s had the fascination with 18 wheelers with “BJ and the Bear” and “Smokey and the Bandit”. I think “I like traffic lights” by Monty Python was more enjoyable to listen to.
