Thread Name: The worst song in the world - really?
Subject: RE: The worst song in the world - really?
Most of us have never heard "The Worst Songs in The World".

Some are so bad that they won't even see the light of day in gigs, recordings, or even at Folk Club/Open Mic song competitions. :-))

So even those songs we hate with passion are usually generally popular or, at least, are widely circulated. Often we just tire of them because the are over sung or, in the case of recordings, over played. Or it may just be the subject content which irritates us.

Of course, many songs are badly constructed and/or "sound tuneless" but the majority of people don't usually sit down and analyse them to the nth degree like some of us here might.

Personally, those I like the least are parody songs especially in relation to current/political events. It's such a lazy way to compose music, as far as I'm concerned, and the results usually speak for themselves.
