Toys I wish would come back and songs I wish that didn't

The 20 Worst Cover Songs in Pop Music History, at least according to Cracked Magazine. Starts with Celine Dion air-guitaring "You Shook Me All Night Long" and goes downhill from there.

As for Cracked, quite frankly I was surprised they even existed anymore, assuming they had long ago gone the way of Marathon Bars and Clackers.

Speaking of obsolete and obscure 70s culture, has links to all manner of vintage toys. Some of the ones featured there that I fondly recall:

Wizzzers, the gyroscope-ish top

SSP racers

Anything from Whamo, including the Air Blaster, Frisbees, SuperElasticBubblePlastic and so on.
