This list is a travesty

The readers of Rolling Stone are bad and this list should make them feel bad [danger: slideshow].

I’m not particularly a fan of a lot of the songs, but there were way worse ones in the 80s. The problem is that no one has heard them for ~25 years and don’t remember them. I can agree with Nos. 1 and 2. But No. 2 has been tainted by more recent and traumatic memories of this: [ETA: is doing that thing again, click through to the post to get the actual videos.]

So, I’m not sure if I’m the best judge.

I strongly disagree with Puttin’ on the Ritz, Rock Me, Amadeus, and  The Safety Dance. I mildly disagree with Mickey and Lady In Red. Not my bag, but solid 80s songs.

You want bad songs? Enjoy.

I could keep going. Now I remember why I was so excited when I discovered the Alternative genre.
