World's Worst iPod: Mambo #5 by Lou Bega
Jonathan was afraid this song would be stuck in everyone's head during the long holiday weekend, but the majority of listeners wanted to hear it.  This song was originally recorded in 1949 and Lou Bega's remake in 1999 made it all the way to number three.

World's Worst iPod: Safety Dance
This week's World's Worst iPod song made it all the way up to #3 in 1988. "Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats was not about safe sex, as some surmised back in the day. It was inspired, the band says, by the fact that some clubs would not allow the jumping up and down "pogo" style dancing that was popular with the new wave set.

Everybody, except Kitty, wanted to hear this blast from the past.

World's Worst iPod: This Time I'm In It for Love
"Don't be a Player hater," one listener proclaimed before we decided to play today's World's Worst iPod selection. It went all the way up to number 10 in 1978. 

We figured Brian Olson would like it because it starts off with weather references. He liked it in spite of that!

I'm not sure how many original members were on hand, but Player was at the Wisconsin State Fair this summer, and they did this song.
