"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.

John Lennon's, "So This is Christmas." I feel like slitting my throat whenever I hear it.

So much musical cheese,so little space. ;^)

One term says it all, "Bubble Gum" and lets add in one reeeeally annoying song, "Afternoon Delight"……oops sorry had a little involuntary retch there.

Oh and by the way since Choctaw mentioned Lennon. Has anyone really listened to the lyrics of "Imagine"? GAWD how utterly depressing. If that was his idea of utopia he was truly one sick puppy. Just make sure you lock up the guns when listening to that one make sure you don't go over the edge and end up eating a 9MM.
