"Worst song ever" rd 1 pt 3 + pt 1 results

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Mine was awesome, and I'm still out of town for a few more days. I'm kind of missing my bed and the woman who sleeps next to me there, since she didn't have the vacation time in order to come with me, but all in all it has been good. The results from part 1 are in. Here are your 1st 8 "winners".

Group A: She's Like the Wind dominated this group and moves on easily while Candyman was barely eliminated by Run Joey Run. That would've been a big upset IMO since I expected Run Joey Run to walk away with this one. My guess is a lot of you don't know Run Joey all that well. Photograph escaped the competition without much trouble.

Group B: This one was very clear cut. Sundown and Candle in the Wind were clobbered by Cha-Cha Slide and True, with True leading the way. No surprises as far as I'm concerned. I didn't really want to include Sundown in the first place, but it is one of the wife's least favorite songs, and well, she's my wife.

Group C: No major surprises here either other than this... You guys really hate Celine Dion. My guess is that if there were a lot of ladies voting, My Heart Will Go On would have been eliminated, but instead, it was the leading vote-getter from this group. Joining Celine will be the Baja Men with Who Let the Dogs Out. Cars and Hanging Tough escape- Cars easily, and Hanging Tough by only 1 vote.

Goup D: Wake me up Before you Go-Go is out by a large margin. Quite a surprise for such a crappy song, but as many said, this may have been the worst group from part 1. How am I Supposed to Live Without You, by that ass-clown Michael Bolton is moving forward. We have our fist tie and my first voting opportunity in this group. Only 1 vote separated these two "jewels" from Bolton and first place, and it's a very tough decision for me. Clay Aiken's Invisible, or The Spice Girls with Wannabe. After much deliberation (I actually listened to both on youtube) I have chosen this because of the stellar lyric, repeated at least 3 or 4 times, of "I wanna really really really wanna zigazag ahh". Wannabe will go forward.

Time to vote for part 3

         Group I

  • Torn Between 2 Lovers, Mary MacGregor
  • Like a Virgin, Madonna
  • Rocky Top, The Osbourne Brothers
  • Smoothe Operator, Sade

        Group J

  • Oh Baby Baby, Brittney Spears
  • Karma Chameleon, Culture Club
  • She Blinded Me With Science, Thomas Dolby
  • Cherokee Nation, Paul Revere and the Raiders

         Group K

  • I Just Called to Say I Love You, Stevie Wonder
  • We Built This City, Starship
  • You Spin Me Round (like a record), Dead or Alive
  • Tragedy, The BeeGees

        Group L

  • Kokomo, The Beach Boys
  • Eye of the Tiger, Survivor
  • My Humps, Black-Eyed Peas
  • From a Distance, Bette Midler

As always, vote for up to 2 from each group, picking what you think are the worst of the 4 songs. Round 1 part 2 is still open and a lot of people who voted in part 1 have still not voted at this point. Also, be sure to check out the blogs by LazerWright, Section_725, and BuccinGator... and anyone else who votes regularly here (I see Lennon and RobToxin have blogs I need to check out as well). Feel free to post links to your blog or any other that you think might be of interest. Thanks in advance for voting. YO

Note, This round is now closed.

Rd.1 Pt.2 "Worst Song Ever Tourney" NFC East

Thanks to all for participating. It's pretty amazing to me how close groups A thru D are in the voting so far. There are only a couple of songs that are looking like absolute locks right now, but who knows if many more will cast their votes over the next week or so. The funny thing is, I've had a few comments about how the poster actually liked a couple of the songs on the list. Well, I like some of them too. Just not the same ones that they did. You can ignore the deal with the football divisions; I am just using that to help me keep track of where I am as far as vote counting and posting. After round 1 is complete, I'll reseed everyone based on the number of votes they got.

Also, if you like this blog, be sure to check out two of my favorites. Lazer Wright's "Vote for your favorite rock songs" competition http://lazerwright.blogs.sportsline
 and Section_725's "Best movie ever" competition http://section725.blogs.sportsline.
 . Both are worth your time and if they are anything like me, they get pretty happy when they see that more people have voted.

Post a response and you'll definitely get fived and faved by me, and I hope you will 5 the other posters.

Here we go. Round 1, Part  2. Groups E through H. Vote for up to 2 songs that you hate per group.

Group E

  • Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney
  • Kung Fu Fighting, Carl Douglas
  • Achy Breaky Heart, Billy Ray Cyrus
  • All By Myself, Eric Carmen

Group F                      

  • Funkytown, Lipps Inc.
  • Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, The Ohio Express
  • Mr. Roboto, Styx
  • Muskrat Love, Captain and Tenille

Group G

  • Saturday Night, Bay City Rollers
  • Feelings, Albert Morris
  • Seasons in the Sun, Terry Jacks
  • Rock Lobster, the B-52's

Group H

  • I'm Like a Bird, Nellie Furtado
  • You're Beautiful, James Blunt
  • Morning Train, Sheena Easton
  • Satellite, Dave Matthews Band

Since the station I usually have to listen to at work has already switched to Christmas music (just a little too early, don't you think?) I decided to throw in the 1st of  the 3 Christmas songs on the list. Apologies to Styx and Dave Matthews Band fans. They both put out some decent music... just not these 2 songs IMO. Guess we'll see what everyone else thinks. Again, you can vote for up to 2 songs you don't like in each group, but you don't have to if you just don't get sick thinking about 2 of the 4 songs from a group.

Thanks everyone, YO

This round is now over.

"Worst Song Ever" Tourney, Rd 1 - AFC East

    A few weeks ago, I asked you, "What's the worst song ever?" and I got some great responses. I have compiled a list of 164 of the worst from your nominations and with some help from Bricktop's blog entry "Jukebox from Hell" and a couple of other sources on the web. I tried to keep it fair... a few of my favorite songs are included in the list, and I don't think any band or artist is on it for more than 3 songs. You will probably disagree with some of the songs included, and I'm sure there are some omissions as well, but hey, who's perfect? I have split them into 8 divisions (named after NFL divisions) of 16 songs each. This will take a fairly long time to determine a "winner", but I'm sure it will be worth it.

For round 1, there will be four songs in each group. Please choose up to two songs from each group. Hopefully, there will be enough voting that we can get through each region in a week or so. I will not be voting unless there is a tie. Your vote won't count if you choose more than 2 songs from a group, so please don't do it. If you have a strong stomach and don't know all the songs on the list, I'm sure you could find most of them on youtube, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Without further ado, let the Tourney begin!

          Group A

  • Photograph, Nickelback
  • Run Joey, Run, David Geddes
  • She’s Like the Wind, Patrick Swayze
  • Candyman, Sammy Davis Jr.

          Group B

  • Sundown,  Gordon Lightfoot
  • Cha-Cha Slide, Mr. C.
  • True, Spandau Ballet
  • Candle in the Wind, Elton John

         Group C

  • Cars, Gary Numan
  • Who Let the Dogs Out,  Baha Men
  • Hanging Tough, New Kids on the Block
  • My Heart Will Go On, Celine Dion

          Group D

  • Wannabe, Spice Girls
  • Invisible,  Clay Aiken
  • Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,  Wham
  • How am I Supposed to Live Without You, Michael Bolton

Remember, you are voting for the worst 2 songs from group A, then the worst 2 from group B, etc. Thanks, I hope you enjoy it.


This round is now over. Round 1 part 2 will be open until around 12/7/08. Thanks.
