Today, nothing but songs that are…Corny. Let’s start with the king of quality corn, Billy Idol!
If anyone asks you whether a song is corny, ask if it’s a Foreigner song. If they say yes, you say yes back. That simple.
I know this is a weird song to cover—and most of you probably don’t even remember it. But I had the 45. Played it til it wore out…
Okay, now a lot of these songs I think are still good—even if they’re corny. Or at least the covers are good. These one was so cheesetastic I had to post it…
“I just Dropped In To See What Condition My Condition Was In” isn’t corny so much as silly. But here we go, a great cover by White Denim.
And I’m not sure Pat Benetar’s Love is a Battlefield qualifies as corny, but the way she shakes her flat chest in the video pushes it into that realm. Great cover, great song, not a pleasure l feel remotely guilty about.
Here’s that video I mentioned, in case you’ve never seen it.
And finally, Patty Smyth: The greatest corny song ever. Bang! Bang!
