"The Sounds Of Silence"!? What!? Are they kidding!

"Kokomo" well, yeah.

I'm with you regarding "The End" and "Sounds" and maybe a one or two more...but did you notice that VH1 covered this topic a few years ago and is almost the exact same list? So much for orignality Blender...


Any time Blender does a list that includes the word "worst" in it, you will always find DAN FOGELBERG on it.

I have to take exception to Europe's "The Final Countdown." I may have agreed before Arrested Development, but all fans of Will Arnett's Gob Bluth have a soft spot for that tune.


No America, no Michael Franks, Tommy James, orRick Springfield. This 50 worse list won't even qualify in the top 100 worse lists of worse songs, sheesh, give me a break


Meatloaf does explain what he won't do in "I'd Do Anything for Love." It's the last line of every chorus, and it changes each chorus.

"And i would do anything for love, I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love, i'll never lie to you and that's a fact
-But i'll never forget the way you feel right now, oh no, no way-
And i would do anything for love, but i won't do that, i won't do that"

So, in this case, the thing he won't do is forget the way she felt right then. Oh no. No way.

He also won't stop dreaming of her every night of his life, forgive himself if they don't go all the way tonight, do it better than he does it with her, or sooner or later start screwing around. He won't do those things.

It's a great song, and as crazy as Jim Steinman might be, he's an amazing songwriter. But not a good video director.


Funny that as I was reading this, Kokomo started playing on my iPod. Love The Beach Boys.
