Last Song by Edward Bear.
The vast majority.
Well, some are so dire they should not even be mentioned. I’m particularly thinking of “_______” by “________.”
“When The Children Cry” by White Lion.
Not a bad song per se, but made no sense that it was a hit. It came out at a time when overproduced dance pop ruled the charts. Here comes a third-tier hair metal band with the third single from their album and it’s a non-power ballad that talks about social injustice and teaching children and praying and trusting in God. So non-metal it hits #3 on Billboard. Go figure.
I can think of loads but would probably upset a few people so think I’ll just keep my thoughts to myself on this topic
I've Never Been To Me - Charlene ///not only should it not have been a hit, it should have had the tapes burned before it was allowed to go any further
Big No 1 in the UK..Kept Vienna -Ultravox off the top spot
Wouldn’t argue with that one. Awful.
I know. Makes me shudder!
What a lame song.
Are you trying to make us up-chuck ? lol
More like, "Whattsamatta U....K!"

Baha Men - Who Let the Dogs Out
Even the band debated whether to record this.
I think that's a great single -- tuneful, catchy, and fresh-sounding. Yeah, it's a little cute and a little easy-listening, but it was 1975/76 -- that's what people wanted.
I always thought "Little Red Rooster" by The Stones hitting #1 in the UK was an oddity. Sure, it was early-days in the British blues boom, but try to find another pure blues record that hit #1 on the pop chart then...?
My Dingaling-Chuck Berry
All of Michael Jackson's schmaltzy "socially conscious" singles.
It's funny this thread just came up as my wife & I were chatting about this fact from the news: Due to the counting of YouTube streams as airplay, the #32 song in the Billboard Hot 100 this week is the infamous Baby Shark song!
Baby Shark (Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo) Billboard Chart (Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo)
There has never been a song that was a hit that should not have been. If a song is a hit it is because a certain amount of people like it. If a certain amount of people like a song than it should be a hit.
This is another case of a thread not having the correct title. Most threads are like that.
Sammy Johns - Chevy Van
Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini
But is this a left or right baby shark dance?
Mull of kintyre. Goes on too long. Took up too much time on top of the pops when it was number one for so long.
