Another list created by a so-called panel of experts at Blender Magazine and VH1. Many bad picks on their part are abound. Question: Who are these experts and why often than not, they are off the mark? Just as their other lists, a few picks are on the money, though others are just idiotic and senseless. Am sure you guys (Discogs members) have noticed this by now. Check out if you may or may not agree with these choices. Have fun!

  1. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart

    Numero #40. Not bad, though personally like the Nicki French version more.

  2. Phil Collins And Marilyn Martin - Separate Lives (Love Theme From White Nights)

    101 For Sale from $0.19

    Number #39. Definitely mistaken as a love song, though the lyrics are anything but compassionate.

  3. Toni Braxton - Un-Break My Heart

    Number #38. Nothing wrong with this, especially the acoustic version.

  4. Cinderella (3) - Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)

    Number #37. Don't like it, never have!

  5. Boyz II Men - On Bended Knee

    Number #36. Come on now..why this one?!

  6. Daryl Hall John Oates* - Say It Isn't So / Kiss On My List

    Number #35. Another wrong pick by these idiots at VH1 and Blender!

  7. Alan Jackson (2) - Greatest Hits Volume II

    9 For Sale from $1.00

    Number #34. His natural solution for instant sleep "www.Memory" was picked for this countdown. A no-brainer there.

  8. Winger - Headed For A Heartbreak

    Number #33. Am guessing this is pretty as in terribly bad, ohhh yeah.

  9. Chicago (2) - Look Away

    Number #32. They definitely have better songs than this, that's for damn sure!

  10. Wilson Phillips - You're In Love

    Number #31. A mild brain-teaser, nothing more.

  11. Mötley Crüe - Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)

    Number #30. Why this?! Try to find a better song on "Generation Swine", I surely could not!

  12. UB40 - Red Red Wine

    Number #29. What's up with this? It's not even written by them, so what the hell?! Good cover song that doesn't deserve to be here!

  13. Jody Watley - Looking For A New Love

    Number #28. Maybe it's catchy, but can't get past the very deceiving and anti-monogamist lyrics! Check the words on out for yourself.

  14. Cher - If I Could Turn Back Time

    Number #27. Can't stand this! Her outfit in the music video is plain awful too. Not ever sexy to a tee!

  15. Eamon - F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)

    Number #26. Plain awful and good pick by them.

  16. Scorpions - Still Loving You

    Number #25. Why this?!! A power ballad classic loved by many. They got it all wrong here!

  17. Starship (2) - Sara

    Number #24. Anything by Starship could easily end up on worst ever countdowns. This one is no exception.

  18. Britney Spears - Stronger

    Number #23. I'll keep quiet on comments here, but they got it right with this. Yeech...

  19. Billy Vera & The Beaters - At This Moment

    Number #22. This should've been closer to number one. It's really awfully bad and would be better avoided.

  20. Klymaxx - I Miss You

    Number #21.

  21. Sugar Ray (2) - When It's Over

    26 For Sale from $0.14

    Number #20. Am no longer a Sugar Ray fan, but this tune is good, IMHO.

  22. Mr. Mister - Broken Wings

    Number #19. No surprise here, because of the deeply disturbing lyrics. Better to avoid!

  23. Kenny Chesney - All I Need To Know

    2 For Sale from $1.98

    Number #18. "The Tin Man" was the single chosen from this album. Never heard of it.

  24. Ace Of Base - Don't Turn Around

    46 For Sale from $1.43

    Number #17. Again, not their song, nor was it written by them. Did these so-called critics prefer the Aswad version?

  25. Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam With Full Force - All Cried Out

    22 For Sale from $1.97

    Number #16. A total B.S. pick by them!! Panel of experts...my ass!
