These Are The Worst Songs Ever Made According To Ireland

Share this article


Listeners to the Muireann O'Connell Show on TodayFM were asked what is the worst song ever made?

They shared the guaranteed ear bleeders that should never have seen the light of day.

These are the songs that cause such a visceral reaction that you dry retch at hearing the opening bars.

 

These Are The Worst Songs Ever Made According To Ireland:

 

RONAN KEATING - FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK

This one drew some passionate pleas from listeners that it needs to be brought forward to the European Court of Human Rights. We have yet to find a human that wants this song. "Ish wash Chrishmash Evesh babesh..."

 

LINDA MARTIN - GET LUCKY

The High Priestess of Eurovision covered the Daft Punk hit on the now defunct Saturday Night Show.

 

FAST FOOD SONG –

This horror went to 24 in the Irish charts in 2003. Interestingly it went to Number 1 in Scotland. We presume there was an option to buy a deep-fried version.

 

AON FOCAL EILE 

The one that put Richie Kavanagh on the map but also divided the audience! It's a real Marmite Track. This was released in 1997 and was number one in the Irish charts for eight weeks, and stayed in the charts for six months in total! It was even banned by BBC.

 

GNESA – WILDER 

This was voted by Reddit as The Worst Song Ever Made and many of you agreed. It’s from a Georgian singer named Gnesa and currently has over 6 million views on Youtube.

 

REBECCA BLACK - FRIDAY 

Released in 2011. The video has over 3.2 million "dislikes" making it the 4th most disliked video on YouTube.

 

MOST UNWANTED SONG -  KOMAR & MELAMID

Created by artists Komar and Melamid and composer Dave Soldier This song was designed to contain all the elements that were annoying to most people, as determined by a public opinion survey. They included bagpipes, cowboy music, an opera singer rapping, and a children's choir!

 

LA LA LA GUY 

Although we agreed with this selection on principle if you watch the video it's impossible not to be affected by the singer's enthusiasm. Find someone who looks at you the way this guy sings this song.
