World's Worst iPod:Same Old Lang Syne
Dan Fogelberg released this song in 1980 and it went to number 9 on the charts..only to return every year after as a Christmas favorite.

Despite its lyrics that depict a pretty ordinary scenario, it seems to hug at some people's heartstrings.

We lost Dan Fogelberg during  the Christmas season of 2007. Yet this simple story endures.

World's Worst iPod: I Want a New Drug
Everybody was in the mood to hear this song from Huey Lewis and the News.

Kitty heard "I Want A New Drug" for the first time at some club outside of Wausau in 1983 or so...it hadn't even been released on an album yet! But she knew it was destined for greatness.

It was a top ten hit the next year!

Another exciting high point for Kitty: the saxophone player sweat on her...just a little.

World's Worst iPod: The End of the World
Turns out the Mayans were wrong, today's not the end of the world. But it can really feel like the world has ended if your heart is broken.

And that's what Skeeter Davis sang about in her #2 hit from 1963.

The talking break in the middle of the song definitely makes this song a classic.

World's Worst iPod: Wonderful Christmas Time
This song didn't really make it on the charts when it was released in 1979, but it's still making Paul McCartney plenty of money.  He pulls in $400,000 a year for this song.

World's Worst iPod: Go Away Little Girl
A few people nailed it this morning..calling Donny Osmond the early 70s version of Justin Bieber.

He was the teen heartthrob among the group The Osmond Brothers, and had a #1 solo hit in 1971 with "Go Away Little Girl."

While Donny was a far cry from Elvis Presley, the costume he's wearing here kinda has a jumpsuit look. And to hear the screams of the little girls in the audience, he's got the teenyboppers hooked.
