World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them!

This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985.

We're a little surprised they didn't choose to perform this one when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year!

World's Worst iPod: Olivia Newton John "Please Mr. Please"
Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." 

But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please Mr. Please," which made it up to #3 in the summer of 1975.

I think the biggest question that came out of this morning's offering--was this song ever B-17 on the jukebox anywhere in the world?

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"
There's something about the allure of Star Trek that made this song by Information Society extra special.

It went all the way to #9 on the charts in 1988 for the band based in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to wikipedia, the band got the permission to use samples from Star Trek in the song because one of the band's members was friends with Leonard Nimoy's son!

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome?

Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some popcorn and TV...yeah."

Alice (aka Vincent Furnier) took this song all the way up to #9. And that's probably the biggest reason that Alice Cooper (the band) and not Alice Cooper (the solo artist) made it into the Rock Hall.

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
