What's worse than jail?

Barry Manilow of course.
Judge Paul Sacco in Colorado is punishing noise ordinance violators by sentencing them to sit in a room for an hour and listen to music they don't like.

Ten years ago, the judge found that too many repeat offenders were returning to his courtroom.

Many of them were teenagers whose parents would pay off the fines they incurred from playing their music too loud.

Mr Sacco did not feel that the message that noise pollution was unacceptable was getting through, so he decided to give the teenagers a bit of their own medicine.

The playlist at a recent session included:

Barry Manilow's I can't smile without you
The Platters' Only You
Joni Mitchell's Chelsea Morning.

So what songs would you punish people with?
