Radio stations all over the world talk about great songs of history or music that have become a landmark for the popular culture. However, they do not speak about the worst songs of all time, do they? Well, last week, during a special edition of the NPR Music program “All Songs”, Carrie Brownstein (a well-known writer, guitarist, and actor) came and spoke about the worst songs in history.
For Carrie, one of the worst songs ever is one from Starship called “We Built This City”. The radio station made a survey and people totally agreed. Carrie explained that he picked this song as the worst due to the fact that it is a total earworm. (You know when you can’t get a song out of your brain? That’s exactly what that song does to you). Radio listeners made a list of their worst songs. However, the song that got the most votes was the one from Starship.
On another note, the second song that was listed by the audience as the worst of all time was “O bla di o bla da” By the Beatles. This song was also picked by the Rolling Stone magazine as the worst song in music’s history.
