Last Christmas by Wham - the way they sing 'I'll give it to someone special' with the dreadful echo makes me leave any shop that happens to be playing it at Christmas.

Now if we're going for stupid songs, you could add just about anything by King Missile - tho I guess none of them have been hits. For those who've never heard of them, titles include 'Cheesecake Truck', 'Jesus Was Way Cool', 'Detatchable P-nis' and 'Double F---ed by Two Black Studs' Bizarre but intentionally funny!

Oh man, I have a few.

Does anyone remember that song in the early 90's where a french baby talked during some techno beat? That was horrible.

Here are some others:

- Was not Was: Everybody Walk the Dinosaur
- La Tour: People Are Still Having Sex
- Baz Luhrmann: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)
- Chumbawamba: Tubthumping (Song sucks, but I like the band as people)
- The KLF: 3am Eternal
- Technotronic: Get Up

Blast the person who said Rock Me Amadeus sucked, it's a CLASSIC!

Fishes,

I know the song you are talking about, but I don't know the name of the song either! I'll have to sleep on it.

Yeah, they may be buried in the past, but the sad thing is they're ALL currently in my iTunes library (minus the baby song). I guess that's why I bought a 60gb iPod: to hold all the crap songs I like to keep!

If it makes you feel any better, it did knock John Lennon's Woman off the top of the charts, and it stopped Vienna by Ultravox reaching Number One (some people rate this as one of the best songs ever that only reached number two, but personally it means nothing to me ).

Ugh. Thanks for reminding me of Woman... now THOSE lyrics are bopping around in my head.

G105, my favorite radio station in Raleigh, NC, used to have a nightly show called The Top Ten at Ten... people would call in and vote for their favorite songs, and... well, you can guess the rest. One night, after 6 straight weeks of some damn Duran Duran song being #1, the host announced that he would not accept any votes for Duran Duran. #1 song that night: One Night in Bangkok, by Murray Head.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few iMixes for these types of songs. I know there is an iMix named Stupid Album Titles.

I know there are some "one-hit wonder" iMixes and I also noticed iMixes named "need more cowbell", "needs more cowbell", and other variations on "more cowbell".

That would be "Dur Dur D'Etre Bebe" by Jordi. That song is wrong on every level possible. Hey, that kid should be about 16 now. Wow.

Get set for a comeback. I just got back from France where Jordi is taking part in a 'celebrity' reality TV show (The Farm). My how he's grown.

Yeah, I'll second that. Almost as bad as the music video for it with the guys waving their hands with serious expressions on their faces.

How about:
- The Twist - Fat Boys & Chubby Checker
- Bamboleo - Gipsy Kings
- Diggiloo Diggiley - Herreys
- Live is Life - Opus
- She's Like The Wind - Patrick Swayze
- Boys - Sabrina

...or really every song on my list of most embarrasing songs in my iTunes library...

Jay-Z - Bonnie & Clyde

That disgusted me. He stole the beat from Tupac and completely wrecked the song. Tupac's song was called Me and My Girlfriend but if you know about Tupac you would know that it was about his gun. Jay Z's was actually about his girlfriend.
