The Internet allows access to a massive amount of music. However, does that mean that for every recorded song in existence there is someone who likes it? Consider the fact that each of the following songs were Top 40 hits (per "The Billboard Book Of Top 40 Hits" by Joel Whitburn):
- "Let Her In" By John Travolta
- "Tennessee Bird Walk" By Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan
- "Mr. Dieingly Sad" By The Critters
- "The Blob" By Five Blobs
- "Junk Food Junkie" By Larry Gross
It's much like television. Despite the knocks it gets, consider that "Gilligan's Island" is still a popular and remembered show after almost 50 years.
