Worst 200 Songs: A Readers' List

So... which songs did we miss, which maybe ought to have been in the reckoning? Here is a list of suggestions from our readers...

John Lowther: Bryan Adams, Sting & Rod Stewart - 'All for Love' (1994, #2) [ed. - how did we forget this monstrosity!?]

Steve Webster: Gwen Guthrie - 'Ain't Nothing Goin' on But the Rent' (1986, #5) 

Paul Simpson: Bob Geldof - 'Silly Pretty Thing' (2011, #146!) ('truly woeful' 'Haha, I'd forgotten about the ludicrous video')

Paul Simpson: Status Quo - 'The Oriental' (2002, #15 - album) ('It's obscene')

Paul Simpson: Francis Rossi - 'Faded Memory' (2010, Did not chart)

'In March 2009 Rossi decided that his distinctive trademark ponytail of the previous 35 years should be cut off. The ponytail was subsequently won by long-time Status Quo fan Sharon Littleton in a competition organised by The Sun.

Rossi was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours.'

Robin Carmody: Star Turn on 45 (Pints) - 'Pump up the Bitter' (1988, #12)

Nick Davidson: Starship - 'We Built This City' (1985, #12)

Richard Oram: Dodgy - 'Good Enough' (1996, #4) [Ed. - was actually nominated by Robin Carmody but didn't quite make the Top 200!]

Chris Loach: The Cheeky Girls - 'Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum)' (2002, #2)

Pauline May: Clinton Ford - 'Old Shep' (1959, #27)

Pauline May: Charlie Drake - 'My Boomerang Won't Come Back' (1961, #14)

Damian Robson: Terry Jacks - 'Seasons in the Sun' (1974, #1)

Jack Roberts: Cast - 'Walkaway' (1996, #9) ('unbelievably dreary tosh')

Jack Roberts: Counting Crows - 'Mr Jones' (1994, #28) ('god-awful lyrics')

"Sha-la-la-la-la-la-lah!" FUCK OFF!

  1. Chris Loach was spot on. The Cheeky song is insufferable.
