Top 100 Most Awesomely Bad Songs of the 80s

I went through a lot of adjectives when thinking about how I should title this list. Words like cliche, gimmicky, corny, tacky, sappy, embarrassing, over-the-top, egregious of course flooded my mind. Since the 80s, these memorable songs have served dutifully in commercials, had prominent roles in bad movies and of course made myriad, sardonic appearances in TV shows. Regrettably, upon further analysis I have to admit that the the 'brains' at VH1 somehow nailed it when describing such songs. So now, you have my own version of the 100 Most Awesome Bad Songs of the 80s. Don't deny it, you love most of them...

Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
