I had a lot of fun going through many of the Billboard Year End charts and making lists off of them. After the 100 Best Songs of the 60s list will be the Worst and Best Songs lists of 1959. Now you’re probably wondering why I’m not doing the rest of the 50s. Well, two reasons: one, 1959 is the only year from that decade to have 100 songs because the Hot 100 was created in August of 1958, and two (and this might seem like a shallow reason in of itself), I have no interest in doing so. I went through the Year End lists of the 50s and you thought the early 60s was bad? Imagine that times ten. I called it my least favorite decade for popular music, even worse than the 2010s. Also, all of the bad 50s songs fall under two categories: boring and stupid. There’s only so many ways I can say “this song is stupid/boring” before it gets repetitive. So that’s why I’m passing on doing the whole decade because they don’t inspire a lot of material from me.

That’s all the updates I have for now. Stay tuned.

  1. What are your predictions for this year’s grammy awards? Mine are: Record of the Year will go to This is America, Album of the Year will go to Black Panther: the Album, Song of the year will go to Shallow, and Best New Artist will go to H.E.R. I’m sorry, but once someone in the Best New Artist category has five nominations, including Album of the Year, they’re winning no matter how popular their opponents are.

  2. So this is where we reach the end of the line on the worst of lists. Any Ideas on what may replace those? Since you posted a lot of 90s rock n roll in your songs of the week, you might want to do a rock songs series.

  3. I’m planning on listening to the 1958 and 1959 year end lists soon for my best and worst lists for every year of the Billboard Hot 100. I’m already nervous of how my lists will turn out given the warnings you and others have about this era. Can’t wait for 1959 and the best songs of the 60s!

    Here are some suggestions for WTF Lyrics:
    She Knows by Ne-Yo ft. Juicy J
    “I keep me two hoes like that fella Jack Tripper. And I kill that pussy like my name Jack The Ripper.”

    GDFR by Flo Rida ft. Sage The Gemini & Lookas
    “Ladies put your lipstick up. Double entendre. Double entendre.”

  4. I think a cool idea for next year could be an Underrated Songs Review series, where you can ask your readers to recommend songs that either charted low or didn’t chart at all and you give your opinion on them, along with a grade from A to F (like Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 Review). What do you think about it?

  5. What are your thoughts on these four 2018 EDM hits: Promises by Calvin Harris feat. Sam Smith, Body by Loud Luxury feat. Brando, Solo by Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato and Side Effects by The Chainsmokers feat. Emily Warren? My grades for each are: high B for Promises, low D for Body, A for Solo, and F for Side Effects.
