Little Green Apples by OC Smith
In 1968 music from the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix were hits.  Sadly this song was too.  It was #2 on the charts that year.

Hello by Lionel Richie
Thankfully we didn't play this song, but it was a huge hit in 1984.  We're not sure why especially after watching the official video for the song.

Timothy by The Buoys
Just when you thought the World's Worst iPod couldn't get any worse, we give you "Timothy" by The Buoys.  This song came out in 1971 and was written by Rupert Holmes.  He's the guy who wrote and sang The Pina Colada Song several years later. 

This song isn't about drinking Pina Colada's, but rather eating people!

Lovin' You by Minnie Riperton
Today's song was number 1 back in 1975.  Did you know Minnie Ripperton's daughter is Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live fame?
