7. I liked the boys
But that track was the exception. "All dayall day, watch them all fall down, Domino Dancing"

So lame. Especially from the guys who came up with "Suburbia" and "Left to My Own Devices"

2. She's Like The Wind
Patrick should stick to acting. On second thought, maybe to just dancing.

3. Fucking horrid - worst song ever
Not just the 80's but all time. I had been trying to go out with a girl when that came out. When she said she liked that song, no freaking way. I couldn't turn the knob or run away fast enough.

Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 05:55 PM by mirandawright
I loathe, detest, abhor & hate with a passion...

"Come On Eileen."

The worst piece of shite ever recorded. It's like Chinese water torture! Absolutely wretched!

26. "I've Never Been to Me"
UGH!. Did you have to remind me?

Hands down, the worst song EVER.

Revolting.

Despicable.

I hate you. (No, I don't, but this is close to unforgiveable).

5. maybe...... just maaybe...
Naughty Girls Need Love Too was the worst song of the 80s.... Its hard to go against She's Like the Wind to. As an honorary mention I'd like to nominate L'Trimm "Cars that Go Boom" They are Tigra and BUnny and they like..... the boom

9. As much as it fucking pains me not to vote against Warrant...
I have to go with Patrick Swayze. I'd rather be deaf.

13. I cant choose between Bad 2 the Bone and Shes like the wind
damn tough choice. I think Ill go with Shes Like the Wind because G Thorougood has a wee bit more talent in general.

15. I think I drink alone was worse than Bad to the Bone
Bad to the Bone has some guitar merit.
The lyric:
"When I drink alone I prefer to be by myself" is quite possibly the dumbest line i have ever heard.

19. "Safety Dance"...
...that Men Without Hats crap. Would make anyone's ear's bleed. "Come On Eileen" ranks a close second!

23. The problem with the 80's is there was a ton of bad music.
It's hard to pick just one song. MTV killed music IMO.

28. Worst Waitresses song--but they had a lot of great music.
Check out "Bruiseology" and their debut albums.

Intelligent, humorous, and soooooooooooo ironic.

27. Where's Don Johnson's "Heartbeat"? Or Eddie Murphy's
"Party All the Time"? Or the one song by the other guy on Miami Vice...you know, the one who was thought to have less talent than Don Johnson? (As if that was possible). Or how about the bottom barrel of all celebrity albums:



Ah, memories...
