They can’t all be gems.

This week, we’ll talk about bad songs by great artists.

The biggest music artists of all time typically have dozens of hits in their portfolio, often so many that they can’t play all of them in concert. But sometimes artists are so popular that radio plays their singles and fans buy them because of unyielding devotion, not artistic genius. The diehard fans might love them all, but the rest of us see things a little differently.

Melissa Ruggieri and Radio and TV Talk blogger Rodney Ho recently compiled a list of their least favorite songs from some major artists and they’ll join us on this week’s podcast to talk about this very contentious list.
