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.

There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984. A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the 70s, and...
