World's Worst iPod: Those Were The Days
This song was originally a Russian romance song called "Dorogoi dlinnoyu".  It became popular in 1968 when Mary Hopkin recorded it.  It went all the way to number 2 on the charts!  It may be corny, but Paul McCartney really liked it because he was the producer of the song.  It was recorded on the Beatles' Apple Records label.  McCartney even had Hopkin record it in four other languages.

World's Worst iPod: Electric Avenue
You know you want to rock on to Electric Avenue--don't you?

This song by Eddy Grant made it to #2 where it sat for five weeks in 1983. Nowadays Grant is a record producer and has done work for Sting, Mick Jagger, and Elvis Costello.

World's Worst iPod: When I Need You
Leo Sayer's "When I Need You" may make Kitty cringe, but it brings back some romantic and awkward moments from Jonathan's childhood.  He's not alone.  A lot of Triple M listeners wanted to hear the song on today's edition of the World's Worst iPod.  Channel 27's Brian Olson didn't know this was a man singing until today.  Leo Sayer made it all the way to number 1 in 1977.

World's Worst iPod: The Most Beautiful Girl
Country star Charlie Rich had a crossover hit with this song back in 1973.  We're not sure what he did to the most beautiful girl, but we really don't want to hear about it.  Listen for another song from the World's Worst iPod every weekday morning at 7:15 with Jonathan and Kitty on 105.5 Triple M.

World's Worst iPod: Afternoon Delight
Why is this song even on the World's Worst iPod?!  Jonathan and Kitty LOVE this song as did most of the listeners.  The Starland Vocal Band made it all the way to number 1 back in the summer of '76.

Of course, the Anchorman cover is also fantastic.

World's Worst iPod: If You Remember
Kitty couldn't remember the person who sang this song, but she remembered ALL the words.  She wasn't alone.  TONS of Triple M listeners wanted to go back to 1979 and enjoy this song.  It turns out the lead singer, Chris Thompson also sang for Manfred Mann.  The song was also featured in the equally sad movie from 1979 called "The Champ".

World's Worst iPod: If
This song is a total guilty pleasure for Jonathan and apparently a lot of Triple M listeners as well.  "If" made it to number 4 back in 1971, but it was number 1 for many callers on Wednesday morning.

World's Worst iPod: Love is Thicker Than Water
Andy Gibb made it to number 1 in 1978 with this song, but he made it to number 1 in Kitty's heart long before this song came out.
