World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true!

"Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny Osmond record, so they released it as being from a "mystery artist."  The intrigue sent people rushing to the stores to buy it, and the rest is history.

We think it sounds a little like George Michael. Note we didn't say good George Michael.

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was.

"Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs.

Exile rocks out with the song here on the Midnight Special. Enjoy.

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989.

Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance."

The G-rating probably explains why Jonathan and Brian Olson liked it so much.

Bonus: Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers plays bass.

World's Worst iPod: Rex Smith "You Take My Breath Away"
Teen idol Rex Smith made it all the way up to #10 on the Billboard charts in 1979 with this song, which was actually featured in a TV movie called "Sooner or Later."

Smith had a bit of an acting career and appeared in "Grease" and "Pirates of Penzance" as well as the soap opera "As the World Turns."

Here'sa little bit of the TV movie "Sooner or Later" along with the song. About half-way through you get to see Rex Smith jogging in short shorts. Enjoy.
