|Basketball...he's playing Basketball....|
Now don't get me wrong--I don't care for college basketball because a) I don't care for basketball and b) I don't care for collegiate sports. But that's not going to stop me from doing a collegiate basketball style stunt!
What I want to do is take the worst songs of the last thirty-two years (why thirty-two? Because it's easier to bracket-ize them that way) and put them into a head-to-head tournament....you know how it works, you prolly filled out those office pool forms a dozen of times.
Of course, to do this, I'm going to need thirty-two songs, one for each year from 1979-2011. So I'd like you all to nominate some songs for this competition in the comments section below. Please give me:
1) The Song
2) the Year It Was Released
3) A line or two about why you think this song should represent the year of its misbegotten birth.
I'll do the tallying, and put the ones with the most votes in the pool for the competition. If I do see a nominee that perfectly embodies the worst of that year, I will swoop in and close that year. I will post the nominees for each year below once a clear winner develops. Please feel free to link to this post, so others who might not be aware of this competition can visit us and vote. Deadline is January 30th, 2012.
Get to choosing, my friends!
