Top Five, Courtesy of Paste Magazine:
  1. “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” – Culture Club

  2. “Songbird” – Kenny G

  3. “The Girl From Ipanema” – Astrud Gilberto

  4. “Tonight, I Celebrate My Love” – Peabo Bryson

  5. “4’33’’” – John Cage

(Dis)honorable Mentions:

“Black Velvet” - Alannah Myles

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” - Frankie Valli

"Come Sail Away" - Styx

“Dancing Queen” - Abba

"Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" - Rupert Holmes

"Fields of Gold" - Sting

“Fishheads” - Barnes & Barnes

“Please Don’t Go Girl” - New Kids on the Block

I'd like to nominate "Me and Mrs. Jones" as the worst song, unless Todd Jones is pitching, in which case, it's the best.
