World's Worst iPod: Mocedades "Eres Tu"
The pop chart included a little Spanish spice back in 1974, when Mocedades had a hit with the song "Eres Tu."

It was a hit worldwide, and made it to #9 in los Estados Unidos.

I always loved this song because I was so proud of myself when I was able to translate it without looking up any words in an English Spanish dictionary.!



The B-side was the song in English. The lyrics are not a word for word translation. I remember enough of my 8 1/2 years of Spanish to recognize that!

World's Worst iPod: Was (Not Was) Walk the Dinosaur
Weren't the 80s silly?

I don't think anyone would say that Walk the Dinosaur is a great song, but it does convey a sense of happiness that you can only get from that decade's radio classics.

This song went to #7 in 1987, and it seems everybody wanted to hear it this morning.  So okay--do the dinosaur. We won't tell anyone.

World's Worst iPod: Franki Valli "My Eyes Adored You"
Franki Valli and the 4 Seasons originally recorded "My Eyes Adored You," but the record company wouldn't release it. So that smartypants with the high voice got the rights to the song and recorded a solo version.

It went all the way to number 1 in 1975.

It was way too easy listening for Kitty back in the day, but of course Jonathan loved it. He even had the 45. Hey, don't judge.
