25 worst songs of all time, most of which we'd agree to be LN in a 10@10 context. And nobody has posted in this since May!

I don't think overplayed is supposed to mean worst. The author says as much. Most of the songs are classic rock and, to a lesser extent, oldies staples.

Freudian Slip on my part. Yes, the 25 most overplayed songs of all time (although I'm not sure why "Forever Young" or "Rehab" is listed.

So, all I've got to do to get my blog more readers is start publishing stupid lists?

If you think quantity>quality, sure.

Love number 5, Every song by the Eagles.  LoL.  I might give "Desperado" a pass, but otherwise spot on.

I'd vote to give most of that album an exemption, as well as a few other deeper album cuts. But their hits? Most certainly, and without exception.
Let's get right to it.

hoo boy, several songs on that list are some of my faves.    I love these and will listen to them INTENTLY every single freaking time

18 “Forever Young” (Rod Stewart)
15. “Sweet Caroline” (Neil Diamond)
6. “Solsbury Hill” (Peter Gabriel)
5. (Take It To The Limit & In The City by the Eagles -- although ITC is really a Joe Walsh song the Eagles deparado-ately needed to fluff up their Long Run LP).
3. “Don’t Stop Believing” (Journey)
2. “More Than a Feeling” (Boston)

went looking for a searchable database of the Canadian Pop Singles charts... no such luck. But here's a page with individual weekly charts from 1964 to 2000.

I wanted to be contrarian here, but even though I like some songs by some of these bands, I can't say that any of them are good. Also, almost all of the entries are from the nineties or later; I guess the headline says "30 years" to encompass the entirety of Phish's career.

On a related note, it only recently dawned on me that Salon and Slate are separate entities.

I guess by definition, you must be a hater to put out a list like this!
