GUEST,Ewan McVicar The worst song in the world - really? (34) The worst song in the world - really? 23 Jun 18


Reading through an old revived thread about the Kingston Trio, I was once again puzzled to encounter that old concept 'The worst song in the world'. Really?
On the one hand I am always impressed at the encyclopaedic knowledge the assessors display of the compositions of Alan Bush, Eric Von Schmit, Fadhali William, Big Mary Of The Songs and thousands more, let alone the unknown makers in the New Guinea forest, the camps of Lappland, and the Gobi Desert.
On the other hand, I guess they are just choosing an overly dramatic way of saying they particularly dislike a particular song, though seldom is any reason vouchsafed, so one must assume it is mostly a matter of personal taste.
Am I wrong to be irked?
