Another Worst Songs List

Blender’s “50 Worst Songs Ever” list still has some music fans buzzing.

Yesterday we did an office e-mail survey to see which songs my coworkers hate. Here’s what was chosen (commentary by legendary rock journo CTB):

America – Muskrat Love
Apparently you have to hear the original version. We?ll take your word on it.

Green Jelly – Three Little Pigs
They were like GWAR, but for kids! This record was indeed so horrible that I have managed to blot all traces of it from my mind. They also covered ?Anarchy in the UK.?

Richard Marx ? Right Here Waiting
This reject unbelievably won a Grammy for song of the year ? in 2004.

Deep Blue Something ? Breakfast at Tiffany?s
Or as I like to call them, Deep Blue Nothing. [Rimshot] So harmless, they made Hootie & the Blowfish look like Bad Brains.

Swing Out Sister – Breakout
!!! Celeste Sunderland?s nomination has me baffled ? I love this! Perhaps it?s the unmistakable sound of synthesized ?80s drums that has her down.

The Heights – How Do You Talk to an Angel
A mainstay of VH1?s one hit wonder programs. For obvious reasons.

Jethro Tull – Bungle in the Jungle
It?s not that Jethro Tull aren?t the greatest band ever led by a flute-playing salmon farmer. It?s that Ian Anderson clearly had his mind on fish spawn when he wrote this one.

Kajagoogoo – Too Shy
Ben Smith: ?It’s a cheaply melodic, insipid piece of dog shit.?

Was Not Was – Walk the Dinosaur
Gene Bolan: ?And I quote, ?the sun was spitting fire, the sky was blue as ice/ I felt a little tired, so I watched Miami Vice.? Pure dogshit song, though Don Was is talented.?

Extreme – More then Words
Surely not has horrible as Mr. Big?s ?To Be With You,? the worst record made with the assistance of acoustic guitars and hairspray.

“Three Little Pigs” was my contribution. That song is nauseating.

What do you think is the WORST SONG OF ALL TIME?
