Okay guys, here's the last set in our preliminary round and the results of our second set.  Don't forget, voting for the third set continues for one more week, so you still have time to voice your opinions.  http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/
entry/10264446/21441605


Group 9- As expected, we all really do want to hurt Boy George and the Culture Club as it was easily the top vote getter.  My personal number two won't be advancing, as I guess people just don't find it as annoying as I do.  In fact, Henvy VIII, I Am tied with The Girl Is Mine for last place.  Advancing with crossdressing man is ... U Can't Touch This by M.C. Hammer which edged out third place Electric Slide.

Group 10- I just can't get MacAurthur park to advance.  Nobody appreciates the love metaphor as much as I do, I guess.  In this group, it was defeated by top vote getter Boogie Oogie Oogie which will be getting down to the field of 65 along with my personal number one, No Trash In My Trailer, which edged out MacArthur Park for second.

Group 11- My personal top two were a DISTANT fourth and fifth in this group.  Sorry, Moo, Tom's Diner surprisingly only got TWO votes.  Guess it's not as bad as we feel it is.  And people obviously had joy and fun listening to Terry Jacks' Seasons In The Sun as only four people chose it.  Advancing from this group are Tag Team's classic (only) Whoomp There It Is and Patrick Swayze's She's Like The Wind, which I voted for the first time, but it wasn't going up against Tom's Diner.  Oh well.

Group 12- This group had a tie for first place, so the two advancing songs with 9 votes each are Summer Girls by LFO (apparently we don't like the girls from Abercrombie and Fitch) and She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby (I always wondered how that worked.  Did she expose a magnesium strip to the air?).

Group 13- To sum up this group, I shall take a quote from community member D2Moo. "Have to find funny the interesting dichotomy here.  One song blandly empowers females, the other stupidly sets back women years.  Bad is bad either way."  And we all agreed as advancing are first place I Am Woman by Helen Reddy and second place Britney Spear's epic (Hit Me) Baby One More Time.  My personal second Say by John Mayer got drowned out by the women.

Group 14- I guess I'm just too old as my personal number 2 Undercover Angel received the least amount of votes.  Advancing are Debbie Boone's You Light Up My Life and The Divinyls Austin Powers masterpiece (yes, I know the song was around long before the film) I Touch Myself.  Bobby McFarrin, my friend, don't worry, be happy, because your services are no longer required as you finished third.

Group 15- You're Beautiful by James Blunt was easily the top vote getter of this group, but edging out my personal number 2 The Night Chicago Died is Natasha Bedford's These Words.  Guess she should have chosen them more carefully as she's in the field of 65.  For you Red Sox fans, Sweet Caroline finished fourth.  The reason I wouldn't have been able to vote for it is that it was a favorite song of beloved local sportscaster and radio talent Chris Thomas who tradgically was silenced by cancer several years ago.

Group 16- Again my number 2 gets edged out.  I guess one really bad line is enough to put people over the edge.  Barely tossing aside Sheena Easton's Morning Train was Brad Paisley's Ticks and easy number one vote getter, the alliteratory Tiptoe Through The Tulips by Tiny Tim (say THAT 10 times real fast).

So now we have half of our field of 65, plus still leading for that play-in game spot is Hanson's MmmBop.  Without further ado, here are the last 40 songs up for nomination, including a couple I don't expect to do well at all (sorry, ktopp).

Group 25-

Just A Friend-
Biz Markie (Oh bay bee you.  You got what I need.  Now give me those earplugs.  Now give me those earplugs.)
Whip It- Devo (crack that whip)
Don't Cry Out Loud- Melissa Manchester (just keep it inside.  And try to hide your feelings about how this song REALLY SUCKS)
I Ran- Flock of Seagulls (this song makes you want to run so far away that you'll never have to listen to it again)
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go- Wham! (on second thought, just let me sleep in)

Group 26-

Bad-
Michael Jackson
Gettin' Jiggy Wit It- Will Smith (hopefully they teach grammar at the school he and his wife built)
Breezy- JoJo (ironically, has nothing to do with wind)
Heartbeat- Don Johnson (actors should act, not sing)
Valley Girl- Frank Zappa

Group 27-

Don't Stop Believin'-
Journey (what, that this song might actually sometime end?)
Ace Of Spades- Motorhead
Muskrat Love- Captain and Tenille (amazingly, the only C & T song nominated)
Oops, I Did It Again- Britney Spears (yeah, you got another song nominated for our tournament)
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy- The Ohio Express (already told you how I feel about three word titles, but THIS song was so yucky, yucky, yucky, I felt throwup in my tummy)

Group 28-

I'm Too Sexy-
Right Said Fred (Too sexy for this blog, too sexy for this blog, so sexy I should be snogging.  Actually, judging by my gut, maybe jogging would be more in line)
Miss Me Blind- Culture Club (umm, okay)
Pimp Juice- Nelly
123 Red Light- 1910 Fruitgum Company
From A Distance- Bette Midler (that's where we should be listening to ALL of these songs)

Group 29-

YMCA-
Village People (young man, get away while you can)
Rico Suave- Gerardo (when Weird Al does a parody called Taco Grande, you know it's bad)
Saturday Night- Bay City Rollers
Rock Me Amadeus- Falco (I always wondered what happened to him after quitting the Star Fox group)
My Heart(this song)Will Go On(and on and on and on...)- Celine Dion (near, far, wherever you are, please don't listen to this song)

Group 30-

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm-
Crash Test Dummies (once, there was this song that, was so bad that it could be the worst song ever)
Midnight At The Oasis- Maria Muldar (come along, cactus is our friend [the hallucinoginic kind, anyways.  That has to be what induced THIS song])
Rock Lobster- B-52's (I prefer stone crab myself)
How Am I Supposed To Live Without You- Michael Bolton (I want to know ... just how many votes this will receive.  And believe me, Mike, she's not asking herself the same question)
The Deck Of Cards- Tex Ritter

Group 31-

The Beat Goes On-
Sonny and Cher (La di da di di, zzz zzz zzz zzz zzz)
We Go Together- John Travolta and Olivia Newton John (has to have some of the most insane lyrics of all time)
Ironman- Black Sabbath (actually, there's a great Christmas parody of this.  I Am Santa Cluas.  Leave him cookies and beer, he'll be back to your house first next year)
Greatest Love Of All- Whitney Houston (is white and powdery [at least in her eyes])
Torn Between Two Lovers- Mary MacGregor (the official theme song of sluts everywhere [although I often act like a fool myself])

Group 32-

Imagine-
John Lennon (I don't imagine this getting many [any] votes, but it was nominated)
Everybody- Backstreet Boys (Backstreet's back, oh no)
Walk The Dinosuar- Was/Not Was (shoutout to ktopp24 for ctaching this one.  Open the door, get on the floor)
Party All The Time- Donkey, er, Eddie Murphy (before he was donkey or the ahole who screwed [over] Mel B.)
True- Spandeau Ballet (with a name like Spandeau Ballet, it has to be bad)

Have fun, and don't forget to click on the link above and vote in Prelim 3 if you haven't already.  It is short on votes.

Worst Song Ever Prelim 4 and Prelim 2 Results

Muskrat Love- Captain and Tenille (I thought the artist on this was America - you might want to double check that - regardless, it's a really bad song)No, Luke, you're right.  They did the original.  The C & T version got nominated (for being worse).

Worst Song Ever Prelim 4 and Prelim 2 Results

Group 25-


Don't Cry Out Loud- Melissa Manchester (just keep it inside.  And try to hide your feelings about how this song REALLY SUCKS)
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go- Wham! (on second thought, just let me sleep in)

Group 26- I like most of Michael Jacksons songs, but Bad was just Bad. Done Johnson can move on as well

Bad-
Michael Jackson
Heartbeat- Don Johnson (actors should act, not sing)

Group 27- I remember playing a Journey video game a long time ago, and I think this song played continuously throughout the game. I hope to never hear it again.

Don't Stop Believin'-
Journey (what, that this song might actually sometime end?)
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy- The Ohio Express (already told you how I feel about three word titles, but THIS song was so yucky, yucky, yucky, I felt throwup in my tummy)

Group 28- I'm Too Sexy is definitely on my top 10 list of bad songs.

I'm Too Sexy-
Right Said Fred (Too sexy for this blog, too sexy for this blog, so sexy I should be snogging.  Actually, judging by my gut, maybe jogging would be more in line)
From A Distance- Bette Midler (that's where we should be listening to ALL of these songs)

Group 29- I"m kind of embarassed to say that I actually like 3 of the 5 songs in this group.

Rico Suave- Gerardo (when Weird Al does a parody called Taco Grande, you know it's bad)
My Heart(this song)Will Go On(and on and on and on...)- Celine Dion (near, far, wherever you are, please don't listen to this song)

Group 30- A Michael Bolton automatically moves on. I dread the day that I have to choose between two of them.

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm-
Crash Test Dummies (once, there was this song that, was so bad that it could be the worst song ever)
How Am I Supposed To Live Without You- Michael Bolton (I want to know ... just how many votes this will receive.  And believe me, Mike, she's not asking herself the same question)


Group 31- No song from Grease should be on this list, well maybe Beauty School Dropout, but not this one. I like IronMan, probably because of the XMas song Parody.

The Beat Goes On-
Sonny and Cher (La di da di di, zzz zzz zzz zzz zzz)
Torn Between Two Lovers- Mary MacGregor (the official theme song of sluts everywhere [although I often act like a fool myself])

Group 32- Whoever nominated Imagine should be taken out back and shot. Does anyone watch Modern Family? They had a character play the backupsinger/Bass Guitarist in one episode.  Very tough to choose, Backstreet Boys=Instant vote, so choosing between Walk the Dinosaur and Party All the time was tough. I flipped a coin, and Party was chosen. Are you sure we can't pick 3 in this one?

Everybody- Backstreet Boys (Backstreet's back, oh no)
Party All The Time- Donkey, er, Eddie Murphy (before he was donkey or the ahole who screwed [over] Mel B.)

Worst Song Ever Prelim 4 and Prelim 2 Results

GROUP 25
    'Just A Friend', Biz Markie--- the commercial with the old guy taxi driver singing in full voice almost made it enjoyable. But not quite...
    'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go', Wham--- Made me go out and buy a T-shirt that said, "Choose Death"...

GROUP 26-- This group is Grade A choice bad music, all these songs truly suck...
   'Bad', Michael Jackson--- Opposite of good...
   'Heartbeat' Don Johnson--- A suitable title for this song would've been 'Bad'. He should've been arrested on 'Miami Vice' for letting this be released with his name associated with it...

GROUP 27
   'Muskrat Love', Captain and Tenille--- They set out to prove that they could do a worse version than the group America did, and they succeeded with flying colors....
   'Yummy Yummy Yummy', Ohio Express--- I've got acid reflux in my tummy from worrying that there might someday be a re-make of this 'classic'. Didn't this group go on to be Barney the Dinosaur?...
 
GROUP 28
   'I'm Too Sexy', Right Said Fred--- When he makes his little turn, push him off the catwalk and into the shark tank....
   'Miss Me Blind', Culture Club--- 'Miss Me Deaf', and I still REALLY want to hurt him after all these years...

GROUP 29
   'Rico Suave', Gerardo--- Good music for giving people initiative while visiting a vomitorium...
   'Rock Me Amadeus', Falco--- How big of rocks can I use? The spoof 'Rock Me Jerry Lewis' was extremely hilarious...

GROUP 30
   'Midnight At The Oasis, Maria Muldaur--- Any oasis I'd ever find would not have a copy of this record anywhere...
   'How Am I Supposed To Live Without You', Michael Bolton--- He was afraid the Laura Branigan version wouldn't make it as a nominee in this competition, he knew his would...

GROUP 31
   'Greatest Love Of All', Whitney Houston--- it's easy to achieve-- just turn off the radio when this song comes on and you'll think you're the greatest person you've ever met....
   'Torn Between Two Lovers', Mary MacGregor--- Yep, the 2 people she couldn't decide between were the two who thought this song was worth a crap. When they had taste like that, I could see why it was such a tough decision for her...

GROUP 32
   'Everybody', Backstreet Boys--- The title must refer to how many people I knew at the time that hated it...
   'Party All The Time', Eddie Murphy--- I liked him better when he was James Brown....

I must add that I should have participated in the preliminaries, because I could have given my own unique views - songs around today that I just hate. :D oh well. For instance, I'm shocked that none of you nominated Satisfaction by Benny Benassi. OMG that's an annoying song. Lol
