In which Pop Music Sucks

Copyright (c) 2006 David OckerPop music all sounds like crap to me. But when I learned that AOL Radio has a station with the 111 worst songs ever, I couldn't resist.
Copyright (c) 2006 David OckerSurprisingly AOL Radio is a nifty service. It's free, runs a tolerable number of commercials, demands very low bandwidth and the sound quality is reasonable. There are a lot of channels, mostly crap, each purified according to musical genetics. My current favorite is Acoustic Blues. I'd also recommend Bollywood.
Copyright (c) 2006 David OckerGo to click on "AOL RADIO" in the link bar at the top or bottom. Then click on "Launch AOL Radio with XM" from the pull down. A player window will open and click on "Launch AOL Radio" again. "111 Worst Songs" is in the Pop category. Duh!
Copyright (c) 2006 David Ocker111 Worst Songs is in "countdown format" I'll just tell you - the worst song ever (according to AOL Radio - and they're really only dealing with a couple decades) is Who Let the Dogs Out. Want to know what the other 110 are? I'll never tell. I've never heard most of them. They all sound like crap to me.

Not interested in pop songs? Here's a video of a cockroach controlling a robot that I found via the WFMU blog. Other robot videos are at the bottom of this post.

Interested in pop songs, sorta? Here are some other "fascinating" Mixed Meters posts dealing vaguely with the subject of popular music, sorta.
