"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.

    Thanks for the votes and comments all. WingsDiva, no embarrasment necessary, especially since you're new to voting here. Welcome, and please continue to vote. It is most appreciated. Iggy, you'll get no flak from me for liking anything in the tourney. I think you have guts for admitting you like that crap though. <grin> Seriously though, there are some songs in here (not many I assure you) that I really like. I'm just not going to say which ones. Thanks Dawnee. It's good to be back home with you. Sorry people don't hate Sundown as much as you do.

    Just a quick plug for a couple more blogs. One has been going on for the entire football season... and a long one for him I'm sure. Iggy, better known as IGetNoRespect has been blogging the Bengals all year long. I have never cared for nor disliked the Bengals, but when reading his stuff, you can tell he's very passionate about his team. Also, I have to say, he's an excellent writer, both from a readability standpoint and a grammatical one. He even uses punctuation. Wow, right? I don't know about everyone else, but while I love reading posts on the boards, I get kind of tired of run-on sentences and horrid spelling. You'll get none of that there. Seriously, his loyalty is deserving of some credit. I tried to blog the Seahawks all year and just couldn't take it anymore due to all the losing. Check out Iggy's blog here...    

    Also, a brand new blog from my wife, the lovely JstDawnee. She is searching for the best of youtube. Post your favorites there or just check out some of hers.

    Hiya hon! So glad you're back home with me. Okay, here's my votes.

    Smoothe Operator
    , Sade   
    Torn Between 2 Lovers
    , Mary MacGregor
    Her name should be Shard because her voice is like glass cutting my ears

    Oh Baby Baby, Brittney Spears
    Karma Chameleon, Culture Club

    I Just Called to Say I Love You, Stevie Wonder
    Tragedy, The BeeGees
    It's a tragedy that these songs were ever written

    My Humps, Black-Eyed Peas
    This one is in a class by itself for this group. The thing I hate about it the most is that it makes you want to sing along.

    That line in my Group L comment should read, "If a song might prompt me to take a baseball bat to a stereo, that could be one."

    I was in a Kokomo-induced rage when I typed that!!

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

    Group I
    • Torn Between 2 Lovers, Mary MacGregor
    • Rocky Top, The Osbourne Brothers

    I actually like Smooth Operator. Sade's first album is great stuff. Madonna, not so much, but the two stinkers stick out here!

          
    Group J

    • Oh Baby Baby, Brittney Spears
    • Cherokee Nation, Paul Revere and the Raiders

    Man, more hard choices. I like Karma Chameleon, and She Blinded Me With Science is another of my favorites. Whatever happened to Thomas Dolby? Cherokee Nation is OK, but not great.

          
    ;   Group K

    • I Just Called to Say I Love You, Stevie Wonder
    • We Built This City, Starship

    Tragedy, not so good, but not a real stinker. I'm a fan of You Spin Me Round, another I could take flak for admitting being a fan of. Will go with the first two. Stevie is one of my favorites, but that song is pretty awful, and We Built This City retroactively tarnishes the reputations of two good bands.

          
    ;  Group L

    • Kokomo, The Beach Boys
    • From a Distance, Bette Midler

    Oy, this is a bad group. I despise the song Kokomo. If a song might prompt me go take a baseball bat to a stereo, that could be one. Eye of the Tiger got played so much, how could you not eventually hate it? Gets a pass, though, because of the real stinkers. Not a Peas fan, and, while some Bette Midler is OK, this song is NOT!

    Thank you all for the votes and the great comments. Very funny stuff on your blog Lennon. Cracked me up more than a couple of times.  

    I am back from my extended vacation and will try to speed things up on the voting and post more often. Keep the comments coming. I really like to hear what it is you hate about the songs. And also, thanks to whoever nominated Rocky Top way back when I started this thing. I was unaware of the song, and after seeing the votes to this point, it obviously belongs in the tourney.
