      Ha! That song pales in comparison to the abysmal horrendousness of Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey", the real WOAT in pop history!

        Predating 'Honey" was "Tell Laura I Love Her", my pick for WOAT. Both were so appallingly bad that it is hard to pick a loser, and not worth the gray cells to debate the point.

          There are several worst songs of all-time links, but "We Built This City" is high on a majority of the lists, as is Richard Harris' "MacArthur Park". Here is a link to one of the most recent: The 10 Worst Songs of All Time - The Cheat Sheet

              as noted (probably multiple times before) I agree completely on Honey.

              But I always really liked Tell Laura! Love the bassman in the background between verses (boom boom boom-boom)

                When I saw "worst song ever," I clicked ready to complain that it wasn't "We Built This City." Needless to say, no complaints on their choice.

                A guy that I used to work with moved to Sioux City, IA. The tourist board there decided to do a promotional video set to "We Built This City" called "We Built Sioux City." It was a disaster. I looked on the internet for it, but I can't seem to find it.

                  Ummm... I wonder how many of you have heard The Shaggs' "Philosophy of the World."

                      Hmmm.. I had never heard or heard of this song. I do not know the parameters for ranking worstness of songs and could not spot the defect. Is the complaint about the lyrics, most of which I could not understand, or the beat/rhythm/music/whatever?

                        No Jimmy Webb song should be on any worst song list.

                        I actually like "We Built This City".

                        "Honey"? Yeah that one is tough to take.

                          The Worst Song of All Time.

                          I sat transfixed in my car as it played, as if I were in the midst of an accident. The simpering melody, the tearjerking lyrics: God, how I hated it. And yet I couldn't change the station.

                              The good news is that this tune actually reached the top 100 twice. First by the group "America" and then a few years later by The Captain and Tennille.

                              I am a fan of America and thus find their version easier to take.
