Hey Mickey! I know it's so lame, but I was a little kid in the 80s and loved that song. Now when I hear it, it's a little upper to my day.

Not to mention what a horrible dykey hair style Aretha is sporting in that video.

R1, I almost forgot about that one. Toni will always have my respect for choreographing Once in A Lifetime.
R2, right? But she looks far better here than she did anytime after the 90s.

This song by The Real McCoy. I think this whole album was actually supposed to have alien themes or something?! Strange.

I used to like "Freeway of Love" until someone told me that the pink Cadillac Aretha was singing about was code for her vagina.
The really shitty song that I like listening to is "Down Under" by "Men At Work".

This. I often call a coworker who thinks this song is the nuts at odd hours and, using my best robot voice, say nothing but "I Am Your Automatic Lover" and hang up the phone.

Freeway of Love is a great song with a super sax bit from Clarence Clemons. Aretha used to love when DJs made comments about her boobs, i.e. look at those headlights, or nice hubcaps Aretha or honk, honk.

Remember this song? I hated it but the rest of the nation loved it. It was played on the radio for YEARS and dominated the mid 90s. I can't imagine any song from today being as ubiquitous.

I loved Freeway of Love and that whole album.
Aretha had been lost and off the charts for years and that brought her back - and did so GLORIOUSLY.

Freeway of Love, Another Night, Who's Zooming Who, Sisters are doing it for themselves. It was Aretha's top selling album ever. Commercial? Hell, yeah and we loved it.

OP, Freeway of Love is a great song! Martha Wash and Sylvester are singing backup and Clarence Clemons came off tour with Bruce Springsteen to play sax on the recording. This song is the reason 100 pink Cadillacs were in Aretha's funeral procession.

Back during my cocktail waitressing days there was a middle aged gal in tight spandex pants and high heels who would come in during happy hour several days a week and request Caribbean Queen and she would shimmy and boogie all around the buffet tables ala Patsy Stone - her head thrown back with her face in the light and suggestively running her hands up and down her thighs - meanwhile customers would avoid her as they were piling their plates with pasta salad and mini quiches avoiding making contact with her- it was awful, mezmorizing, funny and fabulous - to this day the first few notes of that song make me think of this lady.... My guilty pleasure crummy song was Billy Ocean's other song - "Get outta my dreams, Get into my car!" - I don't know how to link it - just thinking about those songs makes me feel 2 0 years young and 10 pounds thinner!

Freeway of Love and Freaks Come Out at Night are great songs. WTF? Freeway of Love is one of Aretha's best '80s songs and Freaks Come Out at Night by Whodini is a hip hop classic.
And MMMBop is a fantastic pop song.
Some of these choices are bizarre.

Honey, by Bobby Goldsboro
. . .
Came runnin in, All excited, Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed til I cried
She was always young at heart, Kinda dumb and kinda smart
One day while I was not at home, While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey, and I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage, Where Honey lived and Honey played and love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

Paula Cole was fucking terrible. In the late 90s, there were so many bad Lilith fair-type burnouts. She was probably the worst of them. And this is her worst song.

Three come to mind:
1)" Troglodyte" by the Jimmy Castor Bunch. Words can't even describe this song.
2) "Julie, Do Ya Love Me" by Bobby Sherman. Cheesy as hell, but I defy you not to sing along with it.
3) "Get Dancin'" by Disco-Tex and the Sex-o-lettes. THE gayest song ever recorded.
