"He's so fine" is a really horrible song that I used to love. Then I discovered the lyrics. Ugh! The rhymes are amateurish, and the third verse really hasn't a clue. I still like singing the "do-lang do-lang-do-lang" part though.

Jeri, Here's Timothy. You know what? It definitely belongs on this list!

Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe and me and Tim

When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Were Joe and me

CHORUS 1: Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Hungry as hell no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you."

CHORUS 2: Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy

CHORUS 1: Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Yup, Mbo, it was C. W. McCall, but my brain wasn't in gear. (since I was at work.)

How about "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" for pop songs that really should have never managed to get air time. If memory serves me, the music included someone bending back and forth a piece of tile to get the woop woop noises.

Let me be the first to second Sinsull's nomination of "Feelings" as the all-time number one puke-a-thon, and I would like to add "I Did it My Way" as a contender. Give me a good old cannibal song any day.

Is it too late to add a sub-catagory for WORST BEATLES SONG ? My pick would be Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

(Totally off topic -- new Beatles parody: We All Died in a Russian Submarine, a Russian submarine ... )

WORST ELVIS SONG, a toss-up between Return to Sender, and Viva Las Vegas.

"My Way", yuck!...isn't there a line, "I chewed it up and spit it out." (Somehow there is a tie in to Timothy here). How could Frank Sinatra sing that line?

Another one: a song from a 45 that my pubescent neighbor used to play,"D.O.A" ("Dead On Arrival," I was told). Sound of an ambulance,a lethargic male voice, and dread, is all I remember.

Lonesome EJ,

I was going to say exactly the same thing as you about My Ding A Ling. I can't stand it, especially coming as it does from one of the greats.

Gilbert O'Sullivan has a lot to answer for as well. Of his many contenders I would nominate Claire.

But for sheer sliminess I think the Julio Iglesias nomination above (For All the Girls I've Loved Before) gets my vote.

GUEST, emily b, "Mickey" was covered by Lolly last year and it got to Number 4 in the UK charts.

Mind you, if you want rubbish pop songs, what about Vanilla's "No Way, No Way". The chorus went somethinglike this: "No way, no way/ mnuh mnah/ Not today/ Don't get fresh with me!"

They are now looking for another record deal! No surprise there!

Daphne and Celeste songs are rubbish too. I mean "Ooh stick you/ Your mamma too/ And your daddy!" Or " U.G.L.Y. you ain't got no alibi/ You ugly/ Hey hey you ugly!"

PLEASE send them down the dumper and bring back brilliant bands like North And South!

Neurons that fired instead of something I could have used up there :D.O.A was, appropriately enough, done by Bloodrock."No Milk Today" was from the fade of Herman's Hermits, and equated milk delivery with continued fidelity, I think, unless I'm missing something. "Dawn of Correction" was done by The Spokesmen, presumably to chastise all us malcontents. But my personal nomination goes to Nervous Norvous for "Transfusion": "Transfusion, transfusion, just gonna make a new resolution: never never never gonna speed again; pump the blood in me, bud." (Later: "Shoot the juice to me, Bruce.") Take that, Mr. Bogle.

Pedant here - Adge was late and lamented when the Wurzels recorded the Combine Harvester. All Adge's work was original or traditional - Combine Harvester was a parody.

How about some of the Goodies "hits" - 'the Inbetweenies', was one (yes, OK I have it somewhere....) but 'Father Christmas do not touch me' should have been buried at a crossroads with a stake through it.....

What WAS the name of that thing?! That's how awful I thought it was, can't even remember who sang it or the title. Feelings must rank up there with the most OVERDONE song in the world too. Oh, and here's another one...Strangers in the Night (doo-bee-doo-bee-doo). Heard a DJ after playing that song say, "Even Sinatra can't get away with doo-bee-doo-bee-doo!"

Hey, why don't you guys provide some links to the songs you have nominated? I did - see above. Several of the songs mentioned here are unfamiliar to me. How am I supposed to judge which is worst? People seem to be having fun with this thread.

Oh! Oh! You are so, so cruel. How can you badmouth a work of genius like McArthur Park? No song (except possibly "Gates Of Eden"...) has reached such levels of metaphorical magnificence as McArthur Park. And in so few words.

It's not about a cake, you Philistines! It's about a relationship. A really deep one. You know, like when the limousine driver in Spinal Tap is talking about Sinatra...("When you've loved and lost like Frank has...") That kind of deep. The kind that gets a guy to write a song like "My Way". Ouch.

"I don't think that I can take it
Cos it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Ohhhh, NOOOOO...."

What could be deeper and more metaphorical than that?

Lest I lose the spirit of this thread, I wish to contribute another truly annoying song that just won't go away! Murray McLauglin's "The Farmer Song". "Straw hat and dirty old..."

He should be keelhauled for recording that one.

'Nuff said.

Another nomination! And a "shrine" web site to go with it!

It's "Three Bells", a hit by "The Browns" in 1959.

(Bung, bung, bung, bung)
All the chapel bells were ringing
In the little valley town
And the song that they were singing
Was for baby Jimmy Brown …

By the way, one of the web sites I found indicated that the original version was in French, and had been sung by Edith Piaf. Nana Mouskouri also recorded it.

From a musical perspective, probably the worst ,most grating pop tune ever for me is that gawdawful "We Built this City on Rock and Roll" by Jefferson Starship. It sounds like they got up one morning and had a meeting with the record company execs and decided that they were writing a tribute to rock by noon no matter what. While on a break, one of them passed a tv and subconsciously picked up the riff to a breakfast cereal advertisement for children. Because they were all so uninspired that morning, this spot (played on a seemingly endless loop) ended up being their song.
