Worst songs ever recorded?

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Wikipedia has made a brave stab at list­ing the worst songs of all time – us­ing polls and lists pro­duced by var­i­ous mag­a­zines, TV chan­nels and web­sites. It’s hardly a sur­prise that Aqua’s ‘Bar­bie Girl’ (see above) is in there…but here are ten oth­ers you might not have ex­pected to see:

True Span­dau Bal­let The sin­gle worst song in his­tory, ac­cord­ing to Guardian jour­nal­ist Luke Wil­liams. Could It Be Magic Take That NME’s An­thony Thorn­ton reck­oned this cover of Barry Manilow’s 1975 song was ‘the worst song in the world’. What’s Up 4 Non Blondes ‘With­out ques­tion, the worst song of the 1990s’, wrote Tara Dublin in the Huff­in­g­ton Post. Life Des’ree Of­ten voted No 1 in ‘worst lyrics’ polls, thanks to the lines, “I don’t want to see a ghost/It’s the sight that I fear most/I’d rather have a piece of toast/Watch the evening news” Baby Justin Bieber The Youtube video with the most dis­likes, and the song voted worst ever in a Time Out poll. My Humps The Black Eyed Peas A ‘worst song’ in many lists, in­clud­ing Rolling Stone’s read­ers poll of all-time ‘most an­noy­ing songs’. Ice Ice Baby Vanilla Ice Ac­cord­ing to the Houston Press, this ‘set back the cause of white peo­ple in hip-hop a decade’. We Built This City Star­ship This No 1 hit has even been dis­owned by Star­ship’s co-lead singer Grace Slick. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da The Bea­tles Hated by John Len­non, this was voted worst song ever recorded in a poll com­mis­sioned by Mars. McArthur Park Richard Har­ris It was the win­ner of a 1969 Grammy, but this Jimmy Webb com­po­si­tion man­ages to fig­ure promi­nently in most polls of worst songs.
