Thread Name: Worst pop song ever!
Subject: RE: Worst pop song ever!
Edith Piaf was accompanied by the inimitable "Les Compagnons de la Chanson" on her 1946 recording of "Les Trois Cloches"(The Three Bells).Have you all forgotten "Les Compagnons" French version of "Down By the Riverside"? It deserves some mention as an example of ersatz folk kitsch.

Incidentally, "Havin' My Baby", "One Man Woman" and "My Way" were all written by the obviously gifted Paul Anka-- he has the knack to keep us comin' back!
