A few songs there considered classics, still being played years later.

Yes, Michael, there are a number of songs that might be called "karaoke songs." They make me cringe!

This list had been building up for a long time. All of a sudden, it was on paper.

I figured it might stir some controversy! lol

I never thought I'd see the day when Hoagy Carmichael's classic, "Georgia, On My Mind" was one someone's worst song list.

I would have killed to have written that song, and would have been happy with 1% of the royalties.

Also, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is pure genius and is now a classic
( though not very coverable, I admit, but neither is Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds ) , sorry you can't appreciate it.

It's amusing to me how every "worst song" list only has big hits on it.

Yep, I guess that's because only opinions about hits will be of interest. If this is really Jim's list of worst songs his ears must have led a very charmed life. Maybe it should be called famous songs that I don't like smile

Just Plain Quotes
"Money is worst reason to be motivated NOT to do anything. Instead of letting those concerns STOP you, use it to motivate yourself to find an alternate solution that bypasses money. You will soon find that your own resourcefulness is worth far more than a pile of paper money." –Brian Austin Whitney
