Dave Barry and the University of Waikato - bad music

Some years ago, Dave Barry conducted a poll of the world's worst songs and the songs below were the winners (losers?) - I find the list surprising, because I own copies of some of them, and some of the rest are not bad, actually. Please let me know if you are of the same opinion.

Poll #479014 Dave Barry's choice of songs

Which of these songs do you OWN in any form?

MacArthur Park – Richard Harris or Donna Summer
0(0.0%)
I've Never Been To Me – Charlene
0(0.0%)
