AOL's 111 Wussiest Songs



I just got this off of a blog called stereogum.com I got a laugh at the entries and I do agree with most of them.

Although I do love R. E. M.'s Shiny Happy People, it is reported that recording the song (and most likely shooting the video for it) wasn't one of their proudest moments.

Personally, I would have put James Blunt's Your Beautiful on the top spot. The loser's personal anthem. I 'still don't get why chicks dig this song so much. Touching and sensitive daw. Really? All I hear is a pathetic whine of how some guy isn't worthy to be with the prettiest girl at work/school/wherever you are. And that he is only resined to stare at her from afar. Come to think of it, it could be the stalker's anthem too.
