Most overrated songs?

This Magazine Staff

What’s summer for if not goofing off and wasting time with asinine debates? Nothing, of course!

In that spirit, let’s try this one on for size, shall we? Here we have a list of the 13 most overrated songs of all time. I have to agree with one of them for sure (“Imagine” is a highly skippable song, for all the reasons mentioned in the article), but I’d also like to challenge Blog This readers to submit their own. I’ll start: Beyond its initial catchiness, what do people see in “500 Miles” by the Proclaimers? I’m astonished this song has endured through painful karaoke renditions and ill-advised wedding spins. It was simply never that good a song.

Anyone else?
