Don't It Make You Feel Good, Star Trekkin' and Ebenezer Goode are classics from my youth. Unbelieveable.

Saturday Night and Cotton Eyed Joe (perfect for a bit of tit-elbow) are up there too.

My No.1 choice would be Oh Carolina by Shaggy. I would rather spend a day on Jake Britt's tractor than listen to that abomination.

I wonder what Dr May will have to say about this...

Maybe they will learn a lesson from this, to leave classics alone. Then again maybe not.

I'm sure Brian's going to defend the collaboration and call the website several nasty names, as is his wont these days.

I'm sure it's not the only poll Queen wouldn't have liked to be in.

And to be fair to them it was only the guitar (the best bit) and drums that they actually gave to the song. Oh, and the lyrics, of course. The good lyrics.

- I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) - Meatloaf
- Spaceman - Babylon Zoo

Shouldn't be in there. The rest is crap indeed. The 2nd part of WWRY2000 is nice though :)

Songs I believe should not have been on the list ( mind you, I don't think that they are timeless classics, but just a preference of mine that I think should be given more thought):

4. Candle In The Wind 1997 - Elton John

5. Barbie Girl - Aqua ( I know this song is kind of lame, but has some great beats and sound.)

9. Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus

14. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You - Bryan Adams

24. The Lady In Red - Chris de Burgh

24. My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

36. # Believe - Cher

37. Macarena - Los Del Rio (One word: AWESOME) The best disposible po song ever!

50. Hooray Hooray, It's a Holi-Holiday - Boney M ( I love this group!)

51. I Will Always Love You - Whitney (Great voice and song, but I still prefer the original Dolly Parton version!)

62. I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) - Meatloaf (Just a classic)

70. Cotton Eye Joe - The Rednex ( I love to dance when this comes on the radio.)

73. We Will Rock You - Five feat. Queen (This is not that bad, but you can only listen to it a few times. Plus I am so tired of WWRY remixes by now.)

82. Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? - Rod Stewart

83. We Built This City - Starship

97. Do They Know It's Christmas? - Band Aid II



Moo!

Yeah, but they are tacky. I mean, they're no WWRY's, are they. Except for WWRY, of course.

No, they're not exactly BoRhap's, though. But then again, what is? BoRhap? Not even that.

Achy Breaky Heart (no offense) is one of the most irritating songs I have ever heard.

Whoever wrote that list was on crack, and is also completely ignoring bad American bands.

"As long as 5ive bring the funk then Queen bring the rock" Surely enough in that line to make it bad. Still I do like the version in a kind of that was quite nice way. It did prove that boy-bands can cover tunes that were not Bee Gee's songs.

24. The Lady In Red - Chris de Burgh>> I have to admit.. I love this song!!! *blushes*

36. # Believe - Cher>> almost as annoying as Barbie girl... top 10 for me...

WTF??? Who put "Wind Beneath My Wings" on there? What hallucinogen is he or she on?

And where, where, WHERE are things like Justin and Nelly?

Strange that the vast majority on the list sold bucket loads, just goes to show that everybody as different tastes.
