World's Worst iPod: Brighter Side of Darkness "Love Jones"

The song "Love Jones" by Brighter Side of Darkness would probably have long been forgotten, had Cheech and Chong not done a parody version of the song.

The group, made up of Chicago high school students, scored a top 15 hit with the song in 1973, but it wasn't much of a hit with our listeners this morning. Brian Olson said it had a slow jam feel to it and Jonathan liked it, but other than support was thin.



Cheech and Chong's "Basketball Jones" is at least somewhat entertaining--and it features George Harrison on guitar!

World's Worst iPod: The Power Station "Some Like it Hot"

Nothing screams the 1980's like The Power Station's "Some Like it Hot."

A super-group comprised of Robert Palmer and members of Chic and Duran Duran, The Power Station took this song all the way to #6 in 1985.

Enjoy!

World's Worst iPod: England Dan and John Ford Coley "We'll Never Have to Say Goo

When someone says to you "Sappy 70's music," I bet you automatically think of England Dan and John Ford Coley.

They had a lot of "soft rock" hits during that decade. We put ED and JFC in the same category as Seals and Crofts, Bread, and later--Air Supply! Today's World's Worst iPod song scores pretty high on the Mushiness Scale, but a lot of people wanted to hear it nonetheless.

This song made it all the way up to #9 in 1978, "Turn on the radio...we'll play it way down low...."

World's Worst iPod: Martika "Toy Soldiers"

For some reason, the song "Toy Soldiers" by Martika just made Jonathan & Kitty feel really, really old.

The song was #1 for two weeks in 1989 for Martika, who started out in show business as a child actor. She had an uncredited role as an orphan in the 1982 movie musical "Annie" and was a regular on the TV show "Kids Incorporated."

Even though this song appeared to be well-loved by listeners who were 8 years old when the song came out, it did not get enough support to be played on the air. But here it is for you now, in all its glory.
