Bad, worse, worst

August 6, 2008

The worst song ever:

BAHA MEN’s summer hit record WHO LET THE DOG’S OUT? has been named the worst song of all time.
The track, which topped charts around the world in 2000, is number one in a new list compiled by editors of and AOL Radio.
It beat off tough competition from rapper Vanilla Ice’s memorable hit Ice, Ice Baby and a more recent chart success for Ricky Martin – She Bangs.
There was even a place in the chart for a couple of music legends, in Sir Paul MCCartney and Stevie Wonder.

I don’t have any quibble with the badness of any of the songs included in the top 10 (or bottom 10, I guess), but, of course, the purpose of such lists is for us to grouse about all the bad ones left off. And there are so many from which to choose! This would be my current list of all-time bad songs. Tomorrow, it might be different.

10. Achy Breaky Heart

9. Baby, Don’t Get Hooked On Me

8. You’re having My Baby

7. Sometimes When We Touch

6. The Night the Light Went Out in Georgia

5. Seasons in the Sun

4. Horse With No Name

3. Wildfire

2. In the Year 2525

And my nomination for the worst song ever:

1. MacArthur Park. Dammit, get that cake out of the rain!

    I avoided “Macarena” (and the equally hideous “I Am Woman” just because they were on the list I linked to.
