contrary to whatever % of 100,000 brits say, a contender has to be the awful Bohemian Rhapsody, just horrible! - I was never asked for that poll (best ever single) but then I'm not a brit...
In a close 3rd was Hey Jude, another catastrophic "song".
Plus all of the above.

Love is a very powerful thing. There's nothing more radical than two people loving each other. When I talk about love I'm thinking of an unselfish love. Emotions can be bought and sold just like anything else, but I think real love is about giving and not expecting anything in return...I think that love stands out when set against struggle.

Its a cable channel but I don't know how widely available it is. We have digital cable and get VH1, VH1 Classic, VH1 Soul, MTV, MTV2, MTV-X, MTV Jams and Much Music USA. Its a great channel.

That shania twain song dont impress me much, In fact it does my head in, its the second most annoying song ever, only second to Ant and Decs new world cup anthem "on the ball"

Smoke me a kipper
Ill be back for breakfast

I agree w Hewson.

As for the other comments on r n b, I think you need to separate personal taste and opinion from a critical evaluation of the music. The topic is 'what is the worst song ever recorded'...and while I don't like all of any form of music, there is some very good r n b out there. Regardless of what she's up to now and how much you may personally dislike their style of music, Mariah Carey can technically sing very well. And Whitney didn't win all her Grammy's cause she wails, she won them because she has (well used to for her first couple of albums anyways) a voice like an angel.

I always wonder at why people criticize the music thats on the charts. Its there because the majority of people out there like it and are buying it! Well, they say, the majority must be idiots. But they weren't idiots when a U2 song made it to the charts, right?? You can't have it both ways. A truly balanced fan of music in general is able to find a few songs or groups in almost every genre that they can appreciate.

OK to rebutt the first part of this reply- I dont not doubt taht both Mariah and Whitney have great voices, buuuuut they just chose a crap music genre to display this in- I cant stand R'n'B and I can honestly say that is like U2 brought out an album in thisstyle I would probably dislike it- I just cant stand all of that forever and ever wailing and lets see how far I can show of my vocal chords kind of music- sorry if it is subjective- but I just hate it........... and the reason why a lot of it dominates the charts is that it is so disposable- it is appealing to the young market who have readily available funds and are buying into the maintream, and mass produced 'celebrity' of music and occasionaly you will see some decent music in there and in regards to bands like U2- a lot of their work is not asdisposable- they are not as 'single' driven as your average one hit wonder- a lot of people who might get into a U2 song when they hear it might instead of just buying the single go out and buy the entire album - therefore leaving them in little contention for top spots on the singles charts- however a lot of crap on the top of the charts is jjust 'single' driven instead of being album driven-therefore that is why it dominates the charts- in the 70s it was disco, the 80s it was the new romantics and now it is bad, bad, baaaaad R'n fooooking'B

I would do anything for love (but I wont do that) or whatever its called. It wasn't enough for meatloaf to make a simple 5 min version of it, noooooooooo. He had to go make a 15 minute version.

Stupid song.
I hate meatloaf.
Apologies to all poor souls who dont, no offence. But he does suck an awful lot.

I also hate that All For Love thing by sting and co.

Personal taste aside (though I still hate it), that "Rock Show" song by Peaches is the worst song ever written. But I still hate the K-Ci and JoJo song.
