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: 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: 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?

No?

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.
