'I confess ...'
I agree with the Bob Dylan
and Bruce Springsteen
assessments. It's not that I dislike them. It's just that I've found no profound reason to worship them ... It's a fun topic -- almost as fun as compiling an All-Time Greatest War Movies
list. ... Another idea is Favorite Songs You Love to Hate, or Guilty Pleasures. My winner is here
. The profound lyrics
still bring tears to my eyes.

I can understand and forgive you loving that horrible song, we all have our musical embarrassments. But when it shares the name of an all-time great, you have to appreciate the better of the two, as well. Otherwise, there may be no hope: you might fairly be classified as having no musical taste.
Actually just listened to this entire album in the car last night. Messages suit the times pretty well.
Actually, my winner is my favorite song that I love to hate, morphing into a guilty pleasure of seething excitement whenever I hear it. Just want to make that clear.
