World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"

LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing!

Musically, these guys were no slouches. Carr was a great music producer, manning the dials on "There Goes Rhymin' Simon" by Paul Simon and "Against the Wind" by Bob Seger, and contributing to other recordings by every one from Barbra Streisand to Wilson Pickett. He also played guitar in Gregg Allman's band "Hour Glass" back in the 1960's.

LeBlanc played bass and sang background vocals on songs from Etta James, Hank Williams, Jr., and even Roy Orbison.

Kitty find it hard to believe that more people weren't interested in hearing the song in its entirety. It sways!

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"

A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts.

Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short Circuit."

Enjoy all the cheesy 80s goodness!

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"

It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt.

It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing lyrics like "when the moon disappears forever, and the sun shines electric blue, I will still love you," you would think somebody would have wanted to hear it in its entirety.

Here's the video for those of you among what we assume is the silent majority.

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"

Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does!

It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the station your mom listened to (adult contemporary).

We tried to find a video of Neil performing it live, with no luck. Maybe even he doesn't like this song anymore.

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...
