World's Worst iPod: The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA
"The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA" made Donna Fargo happy back in 1972 because it made it all the way to number 11 on the pop chart. Some Triple M listeners weren't happy to hear it on the radio now.
World's Worst iPod: Emotion
We always thought the Bee Gees were singing this song. It's actually Samantha Sang with backing vocals by one of the Bee Gees (Barry Gibb). It made it all the way to #3 in 1978.
World's Worst iPod: I Love
Imagine your grandfather singing a song written by a 6-year-old. Wait, you don't have to do it because the song already exists. Here's Tom T. Hall with "I Love". This song made it to #12 in 1974.
World's Worst iPod: I Can't Go for That
Hall & Oates made it to number 1 in 1982 with this tune. Maybe you can't go for that now, but we loved it 31 years ago.
World's Worst iPod: Undercover Angel
This song made it to number 1 in 1977. The scary part, Jonathan and Kitty didn't realize the song was about self pleasure until Friday morning when a listener opened their eyes.
World's Worst iPod: Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast
Back in 1972, Wayne Newton climbed the charts with this little ditty. We actually want to run away from it as fast as possible.
World's Worst iPod: After the Lovin'
Engelbert Humperdinck was really named Arnold George Dorsey, but changed it to the name of a 19th century opera composer. We're not sure why he chose that name and we're not really sure why this was a hit in 1976.
World's Worst iPod: Puttin' on the Ritz
In 1983, Taco recording this little ditty and made it all the way to number 4.
Of course, this is the version Jonathan and Kitty prefer.

In honor of Manti Te'o and his imaginary girlfriend we selected this song about from the World's Worst iPod: Imaginary Lover by Atlanta Rhythm Section. This song made it to number 7 in 1978
World's Worst iPod: Fox on the Run
Back in the 70's this glam band from the UK was all the rage. They had a few hits including "Ballroom Blitz" and "Love is Like Oxygen", but the one that made it on to the World's Worst iPod was this number 5 hit from in 1975...
World's Worst iPod: Motorcycle Mama
Okay, it's not Born to Be Wild, but doesn't this song just make you want to get on your bike and hit the highway?
Well, some people liked this song. Sailcat took Motorcycle Mama all the way to number 12 in 1972.
Best line of the song? You have to listen until the very end.
World's Worst iPod: Lucille
The one and only Kenny Rogers made it to number 5 in 1977 with Lucille. No he his not saying "400 children" it's just 4 HUNGRY children.
World's Worst iPod: No No Song
Maybe we got the "Just Say No" slogin from this tune. In 1975, Ringo Starr climbed all the way to number 3 with the "No No Song".
World's Worst iPod: How Do You Do
We traveled back to 1972 to hear a tune from the Dutch duo Mouth and MacNeal. It's "How Do You Do" which made it to the top ten.
World's Worst iPod: Heaven on the Seventh Floor
Kitty was really in the mood to hear this one. Jonathan's not sure why, but a lot of Triple M listeners wanted to hear it too. Heaven on the Seventh Floor rode all the way to number 6 in 1977.
World's Worst iPod: Into the Night
This song became a hit two separate times. The first time in 1980 and then again in 1989! Make sure to watch the whole video. You'll love the flying carpet scene.
World's Worst iPod: Do You Wanna Make Love
This song really cuts to the chase. It's by Peter McCann and made it all the way to #5 in 1977.
World's Worst iPod: The NIght Chicago Died
Despite Jonathan arguing with Kitty about whether there is an East side of Chicago, the listeners wanted to hear The Night Chicago Died. This song made it to number 1 in 1974.
World's Worst iPod: Third Rate Romance
Okay, we may have all had a Third Rate Romance sometime in our lives, but we all don't have it on our iPods! This song from the Amazing Rhythm Aces made it all the way to #11 in 1975.
World's Worst iPod: Yippee ki-yay Mother....
Bruce Wilis remade this classic from The Staples Singers and was able to "sing" his way all the way to #5 in 1987.
World's Worst iPod: Candyman
So sorry, but this song will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. It did make it all the way to number 1 in 1972.
