What do you think is the absolutely worst song that has ever been recorded? I'm talking about something truly abominable, where not only every copy, but the master tape as well should be burned-and the singer have his/her voice box taken out as well.
Here are my suggestions:
"Kung Fu Fighting" Karl Douglas
"Achy, Breaky Heart" Billy Ray Cyrus
"Let's Make The Water Turn Black" Frank Zappa
"Don't Go Breaking My Heart" Elton John/Kiki Dee
"Rhinestone Cowboy" Glen Campbell
"A Horse With No Name" America
"Honkey Cat" Elton John

-"Who Let The Dogs Out"- definitely the worst...
-Britney Spears' "Lucky" is awful.
-Mmm-bop (or anything else by Hanson)
-Don't know who sings it, but it part of it is:
"One way, or another, I'm gonna find you, I'm gonna get 'cha, get 'cha, get 'cha", etc. It was in "Coyote Ugly" & is in a commercial now.

Anne Lennox "No more I-love-you's"

Ronan Keating "When you say nothing at all"
Btw, I don't think that NKOTB songs were *that* bad. But then again, I must have been eight or nine years old when they broke up, and they don't play their songs in the radio any more, so maybe I just don't really know their songs.

Speaking of meaningless song lyrics, how about the following:
"Can't Get You Out Of My Head" (Kylie Minologue sp?)
"La-la-la la-la-la-la-la-la la la la-la-la la-la
Can't get you out of my head
La-la-la la-la-la-la-la-la la la la-la-la la-la"
I mean is that a song that she wrote while changing out her tampon or something? How long did it take to come up with those incredibly talented, clever, and original lyrics? Perhaps as long as 20 seconds?
And the scary thing is that it was A HIT!!!!!
Another classic is "Got My Mind Set On You" By George Harrison.
I guess those drugs he took while he was a Beatle finally caught up to him:
"I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
But it's gonna take money
A whole lot of spending money
To do it right
To do it to do it to do it to do it"
