I really think Kokomo could be used to provoke rage or revulsion in any normal person (can there honestly be any other acceptable reaction?). If Clockwork Orange were made today Kokomo would be used to send Alex into fits of vomiting.
It is a legitimate contender for worst song of the 80s (well-known songs, anyway). The only perverse quasi-redeeming quality is the insane pride that Mike Love has for it, which turns it into comedy.
Paul McCartneys Wonderful ChristmasTime is another.

Sussudios do not raise. They depress.

What makes this song worse than some of these others is its relative prevalence in our current culture as evidenced by its more frequent radio play.

Phil Collins is worse because I'm more likely to be exposed to it.

No, I meant I don't get the love for Phil Collins. :) People actually like him. Young people, too.

Watched a great doco last night on Sgt Pepper. I knew it was ground breaking at the time for numerous reasons, in particular the fact that they knew they were making music they would not have to reproduce live hence the experiments with multi tracks. But I did not know how much experimentation with music history went into it.
