If you haven't heard, the blogosphere is abuzz with the baker's dozen of overrated songs. I know, it's a lame post after abandoning you all weekend... I've been busy, y'all. Most overrated songs playlist 1. American Pie - Don McLean 2. Light My Fire - The Doors (Robbie Krieger) 3. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd 4. Hey Ya! - Outkast 5. Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard 6. Wonderwall - Oasis (George Harrison) 7. Memory - Andrew Lloyd Webber 8. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen 9. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2 10. Totally Wired - The Fall 11. Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen 12. Chewing Gum (Vocal mix) - Annie 13. Imagine - John Lennon (Richie Havens) I won't even get into what I disagree with (most of these). It's funny to think that the distinction between "most overrated" and "most overplayed" can be so blurred; I really believe a lot of these songs---most of the ones on this list---are so hated because they were played to death by radio stations in major markets. Try listening to your local college radio station or (gasp!) not listening to radio at all, and you suddenly don't hate hearing these songs so much. I don't even know what #12 is. Anyone? Bueller?

I will simply note that there is no song by Kraftwerk on that list.

There is something to be said for being a huge fan of the most influential obscure German band in history.
