The Worst Summer Songs of All Time: The Readers' Picks
You know the jingle. It's the kind of hot that leaves a sweat outline in the shape of a chair on your shirt, and one of the world's most teasing, irritating songs comes on the radio: "All of those tourists covered with oil / strumming my six string / on my front porch swing."
It's Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville," and it's one of the worst summer songs ever because you're anywhere but a crystalline beach when you hear the song. It's vacation torture. Hell, we all could afford to waste away (again) in Margaritaville with little to do but find a salt shaker if we had No. 1 best sellers and Billboard hits. Whatever, whatever. It's going to be OK. There's booze in the blender.
