The 35 All-Time Most Cloying Songs of All Time

Not gonna post the playlist because these songs are so well-known (and defamed), that it would warn you off from listening.  There is nothing funny about this three-hour set. It is complete, gotta give it that.  Best listened to as the three-hour block.  The totality of it is the only redeeming quality.  The conceit is solid, the execution is decent, your capacity for listening….well, that is up to you.
