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.

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...

In honor of National Punctuation Day
Today is National Punctuation Day! It's a day to geek out about exclamation points, semi-colons, ampersands and commas. It's also a day to go back into the Radio Way-Back Machine, and listen to this song by Dan Baird. It was a minor hit in...
