  3. So… it's come to this. We have finally reached the bottom of the barrel. The scum of the sea. The absolute, undeniable, WORST SONGS IN BILLBOARD YEAR-END HISTORY! I scoured through the 60-odd songs that I placed at the bottom of each of my Worst Lists for each Billboard Year-End chart. And after boatloads of memories came flooding back, I found the worst of that bunch. There is no place further for these songs to hide. They may have had their day in court, but now they will be subject to extra sentencing. Let's go! …But before we do, a couple of scattered shout-outs to specific songs and milestones: First, shout out to Captain and Tennille, who managed to top the worst list three separate times, yet were spared from the worst of the worst. Congratulations on being consistently, acceptably terrible. And RIP Daryl Dragon. Second, shout out to "You and Me" by Lifehouse, which is the only song to have repeated a top position on the worst list, appearing both in 2005 and 2006! Yet it does not make the list, because the nostalgia bug is just that potent. And finally, shout out to "It's Been Awhile" by Staind and "Nothin' My Love Can't Fix" by Joey Lawrence, which really aren't that bad and probably don't deserve to be mentioned here at all. But they grinded my gears at some point, so they sit at the "top" of this list regardless. Now! Let's get it started. Wumbo's Bottom 10 Billboard Year-End Hits of All Time Well, that was fun! Up next, of course, is the best list. Same rules, but in reverse. When will it come out? Who knows? I have a job now! You're lucky to get this! Stay tuned!
  4. What is the unfortunate event that immediately follows this gif?
  5. or the day after we're operating on covid 19 time here you can't expect me to be perfect Okay! Yes, I am back. Here to tell you that this project is NOT over. At least, not yet. I still have some unfinished business that I'd like to get to, and it is as follows: I will begin by posting my Bottom 10 Songs in Billboard Year-End History. These will be the most insidious songs from my Bottom 10 lists that have truly earned their spots as being the most rancid songs I've ever had the displeasure of listening to while doing this project. All #1 worst songs from every year are eligible. Next, I will reverse the message by posting my Top 10 Songs in Billboard Year-End History! These will be the songs from my Top 10 lists that stick with me most to this day. All the #1 songs will be eligible (yes, even that one). Finally, as a cap-off to this project, I will reveal my Top 100 Artists of All Time, regardless of whether they made Billboard year-end charts or not. I'm not doing a Bottom Artists list because that's too much negativity, and I want to end this on the most positive note possible. Stay tuned for all of these in the coming weeks and months!
  6. The last time I'll have to do one of these, as well: "Mrs. Robinson": Not exactly one of my fave Simon & Garfunkel songs, but certainly cemented its mark in music history. "Scarborough Fair": Even less of a favourite of mine, and I don't think this one has held up to the test of time. "Hello, I Love You": The Doors have always exuded this aura of coolness, but it's not really enough for this song to be top tier in their catalogue. "Sunshine of Your Love": Iconic guitar riff is enough to make it Top 20. "Mony Mony": I vastly prefer the Billy Idol version. "Magic Carpet Ride": In contrast to "Born to Be Wild", this song feels quite aimless by comparison. That's what you get when you completely pivot from your buildup in the intro into a perfectly normal verse. That said, I do like the song. John Kay has a really distinctive voice that carried this band. "Dock of the Bay": Classic. Untouchable. #14. I'm an idiot. "Young Girl": I wasn't really impressed with much of this group's output, but this one had a soaring chorus I just couldn't ignore, and Gary Puckett's voice does shine through here. "MacArthur Park": No version of this song is ever going to be good. Like, is it supposed to be a joke that the metaphor in the chorus is so lame? Are we supposed to think it's poetic? WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE "Green Tamborurine": Meh. "Suzie Q.": Love CCR, love Fogerty's iconic voice. Just another great song in their catalogue. "White Room": Eric Clapton may be a dick, but his guitar riffs really do Cream songs more justice than they probably deserve. "Do You Know the Way to San Jose": I'm sure this music appeals to somebody. You find them and play this song for them, and have a nice day. "Light My Fire": It doesn't match The Doors' original by any stretch, but an interesting take on the song nonetheless. The Rascals: I deeply do not care about The Rascals. Great Value version of a 60s group. "Delilah": how did we let this guy have a career "Lady Madonna": This is pretty low on the list of Beatles songs I'd like to hear again. Just kind of... annoying? "I've Gotta Get a Message to You": This is before the Bee Gees would really blow up, and it does kind of feel like proto-Bee Gees in that sense. "The Mighty Quinn": A song with a title like this should probably be more interesting. "(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone": Aretha Franklin is a goddess. Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell: These are fine enough. I think Marvin Gaye has made much more thought-provoking and important music, but these are good. All right! So that's the end, right? Well... stay tuned for an announcement tomorrow.
  7. 1968! A good year for music? Yes! I have done 60 of these now, I've ran out of ways to introduce 'em. So fuck it! Let's gooooo Wumbo's Top 10 Hits of 1968 Full List:
  8. The end is nigh. We have finally reached, after nearly seven years, the final one of these lists! Unless I decide to make one for 2020. Anything's possible for this year. But yes, as far as my retro-retrospectives go, this is it. 1968! After this, we are done. …So what do we do now? I don’t think 1968 was particularly great or bad. There are certainly great and bad songs, and we'll get to 'em, but the year as a whole kind of falls into the middle of all the years I've covered thus far. So that's what we're ending on. Yippee. All right, let's start off with… Wumbo's Bottom 10 Hits of 1968

      I have NO idea what you're talking about!

    4. The Patient
  10. 2009 Just Dance: Good song! Can see why it got popular and launched Gaga into the mainstream. Colby O'Donis remains as dull and annoying as ever, though. Love Story: It's just a bit too on the nose to directly lift your love story from Romeo and Juliet. Of course, Taylor Swift was like 9 at the time, so I guess I can let it slide. You Belong with Me: Now, see, this is how you do a teenage love song! With cliches and mean-girl bullshit... wait. Oh well, it's catchy as hell and cute enough. I Love College: This song smells. 21 Guns: Back when Green Day didn't completely lose their edge and songwriting skills. I remember jamming to this back in the day and I think it still holds up decently well. 1978 Night Fever: Let's be real, anything but "Stayin' Alive" looks like a disappointment from these guys. But this one's okay. Love is Like Oxygen: Not one of Sweet's better songs to be honest, but it's decent. Disco Inferno: aw yiss Come Sail Away: Huge fan of this one, and not sorry about it. All that 70s cheese prepared in just the right way. Copacabana: Eh The Name of the Game: Passable. ABBA has done better. 1988 Never Gonna Give You Up: This song has been memed so hard it's difficult to judge it objectively at all. I think it's probably good? Rick Astley is a pretty great singer regardless. Pour Some Sugar on Me: The perfect kind of goofy song that Def Leppard pulls off well. Man in the Mirror: Another great Michael song. Only wish he'd actually taken the advice in the song. Kokomo: ugggghhhhh Nothin' but a Good Time: Poison is one of those bands that is so much worse than you remember. Like a bargain bin Motley Crue. This isn't their worst song, but like a lot of their work, it is utterly disposable.
  11. Hey y'all! So I've been locked out of SBC for like 6 months now, but I'm back! In the meantime I've been posting my Hot 100 reviews on my blog. If you don't read it or didn't even know I had one, here's a rundown of what you missed: Bottom hits of 2009 Top hits of 2009 Bottom hits of 1978 Top hits of 1978 Bottom hits of 1988 Top hits of 1988 Whew! That's a lot. And that also leaves me with only one year left to go: 1968 Now, I could continue posting this one on my blog, like I have been for the past several months. But it is my final list, after years of doing this crazy task. So I figure I'd better go back to where I started from, and post it here! Hoping to have the lists out sometime this month, but deadlines have never been my strong suit with the project, so we'll see! Thank you to everyone who continued to give a crap.
