Rant of the Week

Worst Singles of All Time

Of course these are not the worst singles of all time.  Most people have never heard the worst singles of all time-- like "The Times They Are A'Changin'" by Rabbi Abraham Feinberg, or "Clouds" by Leonard Nimoy or "Big Yellow Taxi" by Bob Dylan-- because they simply have never been played on the radio. 

So, actually, these are songs that stink even though they were massively promoted and acquired a certain following.

Honorable Mentions (added November 2007)
Three Times a Lady (Lionel Richie)
Every Thing I Do (Bryan Adams)
Puppy Love (Donny Osmond, written by Paul Anka)
Glamour Boy (Guess Who)
We Will Rock You (Queen)
Never Been to Me (Charlene)

Do Yah Think I'm Sexy (Rod Stewart) Most ill-advised single of all time: Pet Me, Poppa (Rosemary Clooney). Most horrible earworm (tie): "Mandy" (Barry Manilow), "Sweet City Woman", (Stampeders)
