Yeah, one of the radio stations around here was discussing this list. I've decided the real travesty of the list isn't what's on it, but what's not on it. You mean to tell me there are no Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Paula Abdul, or Yoko Ono songs on there, but they managed to find room for the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel!!!!!

Indeed! This is clearly someone's personal pet peeve list. I'd be putting that "Tell me what you want.." Spice Girls song *way* up high on mine.

ha ha ha, this is great. I've got to do one. :)

13. Illegal Alien ... Genesis
hmm... isn't this by Thing String... and does it not have a different title...

I still own only one of those song... and it's #49... oh 1991 has a lot to answer for.
May. 2nd, 2004 08:10 pm (UTC)
Heh, yes, 1991 does have a lot to answer for. The hair...the trousers...the shredded clothing in general...well, let's just stop there.

Sting's was "An Englishman in New York," so I have to assume there really is a Genesis song called "Illegal Alien." I just don't happen to know it.

The Genesis song features repeated refrains of, "It's no fun being an illegal alien," with "alien" being pronounced to rhyme with "fun." Dunno that I'd put *anything* by Genesis in my 50 worst, but the song *can* be annoying.

And why do you detest the Rembrants song?

And why do you detest the Rembrants song?

Oh...something about it being played 8 million times in my hearing. And 'Friends' degenerating to the mediocre show that it now is, to the point where I don't even care that the final episode is on right now. :)

Two Princes is an amazing song!

18. You're the Inspiration ... Chicago

I have to admit, anything by Chicago is a favorite by mine. this could be because their songs make me think of Junior high and Karate Kid movies...

Should I have admitted that?

44. I'll Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) ... Meat Loaf (I've always wondered what the one thing he won't do is.)

It's buried at the end of the song, long past the point where most people have changed stations or fallen asleep, but if you get that far, all is explained: He won't screw around.

(And, yes, how dumb is that?)
