Honey? Seriously? Honey?

Needless to say I have several bones to pick with that list. Not that is is my favorite or anything, but Hey Jude was (objectively) a bigger hit than I Want to Hold Your Hand and had a longer run at #1. I don't know the other charts they used.

I suspect there's a lot of input from the guy who put the list together. How does "Honey" get to be in the top ten??

It's an interesting list. I guess he used accumulated weeks from all three publications, but it's still odd. "Honey" is one of the worst songs of all time, but here's a little-known fact for you. Bob Shane, of Kingston Trio fame, was making a try at being a solo artist and recorded that song as a single a good while before Bobby Goldsboro. Shane's single sank without a trace.

My favorite version of "Honey" was the one the Smothers Brothers did on television.
