Worst Song Ever Written

"We Built This City" by Starship.

For this reason, I do not recommend sitting too long in the lobby of the Wyndham Hotel O'Hare in Rosemont, IL. When I was there for Windycon, I brought my laptop to the lobby to take advantage of their wireless network. Within one hour, I heard this song three times. I had to leave before my brains started leaking out my ears.

Apparently VH1 agreed with me about "We Built This City," but I take little comfort in validation from a network whose lineup is currently 97% countdown shows (Tonight: "The 100 Best Music Video Reptiles"--in conjunction with Animal Planet) and "Where Are They Now?" features (Tonight, on "Does Anyone Care?": NELSON!)

So what's your least favorite song?
