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.

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...
