3. Michael McDonald, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"

Made famous by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, this song is made nonsensical by the former Doobie Brother and a host of background singers. Everything wrong with soft rock is distilled into these three minutes, after which you'll wish mountains actually were high enough to keep him getting to you. He beats out Bizkit because he was audacious to record two albums of Motown covers.
