10 Things Music

The Worst Songs Ever Written

We love listening to our favorite, personal playlists.  We all have songs on there that we love to sing along to, that we love playing at full volume in our cars, at parties.

They’re not necessarily GOOD songs, but they are songs that we love… and love to mock.

Not Since Carrie: Forty Years of Broadway Musical Flops

And that’s the premise behind VULTURE’S LIST OF THE 150 SCHLOCKIEST SONGS EVER WRITTEN,  They’re all popular songs that we all know, songs that we’ve all heard millions of times but make fun of anyone who says that they’re their favorite songs.

Just because we love ’em, doesn’t mean they’re any good.  Let’s take a look:

  1. Over the Rainbow
  2. Purple Rain
  3. Don’t Stop Believin’
  4. He Stopped Loving Her Today
  5. American the Beautiful
  6. Endless Love
  7. How Deep Is Your Love
  8. Both Sides, Now
  9. Old Folks at Home
  10. Only the Lonely
  11. Are You Lonesome Tonight
  12. I Have Nothing
  13. I Will Always Love You
  14. Danny Boy
  15. The Winner Takes It All
  16. After the Ball
  17. I Want It That Way
  18. I Will Survive
  19. My Mammy
  20. All in Love is Fair

So go through the list – are there any other songs you can think of that should have been on this list?  Are any worthy of being removed as being non-schlocky?  Tell us in the notes below…
