"The song was designed to incorporate lyrical and musical elements that were annoying to most people, as determined by a public opinion survey."

I played it, and I don't see how it could compete with "Unchained Melody" for annoyance. When that song was released--or escaped?--it was time to retire the award.

Come on Robert – what about "The Birdy Song" or some of the rubbish from Jonathan Kings line up?

Shaddupa your face!

I refer to the song of the same title of course as being most worthy of an award for annoyance, and for keeping a far better record at no.2 in the charts.

I agree with Volleyfire. Now THAT song was annoying.

Sorry, it would have to be "Billy Don't be a Hero". Or anything by Helen Reddy.

Something that is designed to be annoying cannot compete fairly with a song that was serious and heartfelt.
For that I nominate "Torn Between Two Lovers".
Big Girls Don't Cry.
Billy Don't be a Hero
