World's Worst iPod: Sugar Loaf "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You"
The trials and tribulations of a band trying to get a record contract are related in the 1975 hit "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" by Sugar Loaf. This song, which was actually recorded two years earlier, made it up to #9 on the chart.

What's not to love about this song? A cameo by Wolfman Jack, the touch tones of the White House phone number...a Beatle reference?  This song has that and more.

One little tidbit for you--Sugar Loaf was originally called "Chocolate Hair," which they changed when they got a record deal. Good move!

World's Worst iPod: Rocky Burnette "Tierd of Toeing the Line"
Rocky Burnette was the son of legendary rockabilly artist Johnny Burnette and was part of a resurgence of rockabilly in 1980. This song made it up to #8 on the chart.

You may not agree with Kitty that this song is awesome, but you've got to attest that the cheesiness of this video elevates the song to epic status.

World's Worst iPod: Gunhill Road "Back When My Hair Was Short"
This song only made it up to #40 on the pop charts in 1973, but it's been seared into Kitty's brain ever since.

Alas, it was the best chart position ever attained by the trio called Gunhill Road.

It's one of the first examples of pop culture talking about hippie disillusionment. At least that we know of!

World's Worst iPod: Spandau Ballet "True"

Spandau Ballet only made it up to #4 in the United States with their 1983 song "True," but it was even a bigger hit in England.

It seems a lot of Triple M listeners liked this song because it was in the movie "Sixteen Candles," while others thought it was just a little too slow and drippy.

Here are "the Spans" on the British TV show "Top of the Pops."  Enjoy. Or don't.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
