Re: Songs everyone hates that you like

Call Me Maybe topped the 2012 Pazz & Jop poll and nearly doubled the votes of the runner up; there's no way it belongs in this topic. In fact, probably half the songs that have been mentioned would probably fall somewhere on AM's top 10,000 songs, proving that our taste is simply too good to lik...

Re: Songs everyone hates that you like

Time Magazine called Justin Timberlake's CAN'T STOP THE FEELING the worst song of the year, but I had it in my top 50. And I'm fairly certain that I'm the only music snob in the world who put The Fray's How to Save a Life on a top 50 of the year list.
