The Worst Love Songs Of All Time For Valentine’s Day 2014
)1 Starland Vocal Band – “Afternoon Delight” (1976) This 1976 classic definitely gets its message across. If the name doesn’t quite give away the goal of the song, the lyrics certainly will. Most recently popularized in Will Ferrell’s movie “Anchorman,” “Afternoon Delight” is a classic rock love song that wins our worst love song award for most obvious wordplay.
)2 Eric Clapton – “Wonderful Tonight” (1977) It may be a classic love song from the late 70s, but “Wonderful Tonight” is cheesy and overplayed. Clapton originally wrote the song about Pattie Boyd while waiting for her to get ready to attend Paul and Linda McCartney’s annual Buddy Holly Party. Since Clapton first thought of the song, it has been played endlessly in films and romantic scenes. “Wonderful Tonight” wins our worst love song award for being too overplayed.
)3 Meatloaf – “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” (1977) “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” is a love song released on Meatloaf’s 1977 album “Bat Out of Hell.” The song in of itself is less offensive than many of the others on this list. It isn’t cheesy, crude, or overplayed, but it certainly isn’t niceeither.
)4 “(You’re) Having My Baby” (1974) by Paul Anka. Nowhere else can you find a song about how happy a dude is that you’re having HIS baby (apparently it’s not your baby – just his). It’s not only extremely sexist, it’s over-the-top corny.
)5 “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” (1979) by Rupert Holmes. One of the worst tunes in existence, it’s for some unknown reason considered a love song. A love song in which the married couple takes out a personal ad looking for new love.
