Bad songs which became HITS

Post by jchitty » Mon Mar 26, 2007 10:07 am

Anyone have a list of songs which are fairly bad, but somehow or another, they became chart toppers? Maybe there is some arrogance in this, because one day, maybe one of my songs would be featured on that list, but I have a list anyway. 1. Muskrat Love 2. Afternoon Delight (although I love that silly song for some reason3. Loving You (Minnie Ripperton)4. Don't Worry, Be Happy5. Disco Duck
