10 Worst Songs to Catch Yourself Humming

So I just spent much of the last month travelling around the country. And one of the worst parts of hotels and elevators and truck-stop bathrooms is clearly the Muzak. My piped-in-pop-music Dosage was noticeably high for the month (measured in minutes consumed while waiting to order a McChicken combo). But the worst is when you're back in the car manning down I-70 like you're conquering the Louisiana Purchase, and suddenly you realize that you're humming a Disco song.

So in honor of my recent travels, and my propensity to start singing embarassing songs without noticing, I give you the

Top Ten Worst Muzak Songs

(Because They Stick Like a Mutha)

  1. "Call Me Maybe"—Carly Rae Jepson
  2. "I Believe I Can Fly—R Kelly
  3. "Roam If You Want To"—B-52s
  4. "This is How You Remind Me"—Nickelback
  5. "Safety Dance"—Men Without Hats
  6. "Mmm-Bop"—Hanson
  7. "Dancing Queen"—ABBA
  8. "Total Eclipse of the Heart"—Bonnie Tyler
  9. "Love Shack"—B-52s

And the worst song ever to be caught singing aloud cause you just heard it on the overhead is:

  1. "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"—Cyndi Lauper

Honorable mentions to: "YMCA"—Village People and "Baby, Baby" by Amy Grant
