Most Overrated Songs of All Time

Blog Critics has posted the Top 13 Most Overrated Songs of All Time. Here’s a taste:

5. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Def Leppard

In an age of overrated songs ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ rose to the occasion. Has anyone listened to the lyrics? “Mirror queen, mannequin, rhythm of love.. Do you take sugar? one lump or two?” It makes absolutely no sense. And the drums might as well be a beat box, or a late 80’s Casio keyboard with the ‘Rock Drum’ button to play along with. The guitar riffs are bland, and for some reason Joe Elliot is trying to passionately scream words like ‘saccharine’. It just doesn’t work, but for some reason people love this song. I guess it’s the loud kick and the double tracked vocals.

Sadly, a couple of my favorites made the list. For reasons of dignity, I won’t divulge which ones.
