I almost forgot how much I missed this stuff. This is the stuff I listened to in the workshop with my Dad when I was growing up. It's what I listened to when I moved to college. This is what I listened to on sunny weekends my Freshman year in Moscow, driving the loop around Moscow Mountain with my windows down and the volume cranked up to full. It's the music I associate with being happy and utterly carefree.
That being said, I fully recognize that there are a lot of songs out there that are really awful, no matter how much I love them.
So, here's a little survey. What are some of your favorite bad songs? The ones you're a little ashamed to admit you like? C'mon, we're all friends here. Look, I'll go first.
The Buoys "Timothy"
Reason: This song is the catchiest song about cannibalism that I've ever heard.
America "Muskrat Love"
Reason: Oh God. I'm a monster.
Starship "We Built This City"
Reason: Blender ranked this the #1 Most Awesomely Bad Song ever. The editor set a record for listening to this song by locking himself in a Plexiglas booth with it for 24 hours straight. Hell with you all, this song is great.
Styx "Mr. Roboto"
Reason: I actually first heard this song in a really campy car commercial. Now whenever I hear it, it makes me laugh. In a good way.
There are some more current ones that I like, but I'll save those for another day.
So, dump a few of your favorite bad songs on here. Please. Tell me I'm not alone.
