Looking Beyond “(The Ballad of) Sharknado”: 30 Other Ballads Worth Hearing

Earlier this week, an absurd number of people tuned in to watch an even more absurd TV movie called Sharknado 2: The Second One, and if you were paying close attention, then you might’ve heard a little ditty called “(The Ballad of) Sharknado.” The song was initially introduced in the first film, but in order to help keep the budget down, they decided to utilize it again in the sequel, which has caused somewhat of a resurgence in people’s appreciation of the track, and we’re anticipating that it’ll get a further boost when SyFy airs an encore of Sharknado 2. on Saturday evening.

In anticipation of the inevitable backlash, we decided we’d cater to those of you who are now or eventually will grow tired of hearing “(The Ballad of) Sharknado” by providing you with a playlist of 30 other ballads, all taken from our digital catalog. It’s a ridiculously diverse group of folks – you get Alice Cooper, George Benson, Big Star, Freddie and the Dreamers, Bad Company, Jerry Jeff Walker, Toy Matinee, and Prince, to name just a few of the names included therein – but we’ll guarantee you this much: it’s not as ridiculous as Sharknado 2.
