Worst Songs Ever Recorded
I was flipping channels on my television this past weekend and I came across some of the music channels I have on my Dish TV package. I think I heard what could have been one of the worst songs in my life! I had never heard it before. It was a song from 1972 from the group ‘Chakachas‘ called ‘Jungle Fever’. They were a Belgian-based group of Latin soul musicians.
I researched more about the group and the song and discovered that it was featured in the movie ‘Boogie Nights.’ It was a big hit in dance clubs in 1972 and peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Many radio stations did not play it because of its’ sexual overtones. Over a million copies of the song were sold.
There have been several opinions and polls of worst songs of all time. CNN.com users voted the 1974 hit by Paul Anka, ‘(You’re) Having My Baby’ as the worst song of all time. ‘We Built This City’ by Starship is in many worst of all time lists. I was looking at a worst songs list on AOL and I actually liked quite a few of the songs! Some of them include, ‘Take The Money And Run’ by the Steve Miller Band, ‘Dream Weaver’ by Gary Wright, ‘Seasons In The Sun’ by Terry Jacks. Most of the songs on the list were big hits! By the way the #1 ‘Worst Song’ on the list I was looking at was ‘Muskrat Love’ by Captain and Tennille.
What songs would you put on your ‘Worst Songs List?’ Oh, by the way, back to ‘Jungle Fever’ by Chakachas. Here is some of the song.
