Saw this on Reddit.
If you could permanently delete one song from the face of the earth, never to be played or heard by anyone ever again, what song would it be?
I don’t have strong feelings about songs I don’t like, but maybe one of those music memes. I could do without the Rick Rolls or the Gangnam style dance.

The screachee ‘hold my hand’ song from the Holliday advert ( jet2 or tui or something)
My pop musical knowledge stops around 1973 so I probably would not miss anything made after 1973.
I often switch off the radio part-way through a song because what some people may hear as a song, I’m hearing as just a horrible racket - there’s too many of those to list!
I wouldn’t choose to stop anyone else from listening to them, though - one man’s meat is another man’s poison, and all that.
I saw the title of this thread and immediately thought of Rick Astley’s song - naturally it’s already top of the list
The Wheels on The Bus go Round and Round
When I was working part time as a classroom assistant I can’t remember why but one of the staff played that bloody song over and over and over and over and over again. At risk of being perceived as a grumpy old misery killjoy I was seriously beginning to lose the will to live!
There are possibly some thrash metal fans here, but I would delete the entire genre
Anything from the 80s/90s,especially those Stock,Aitkin and Waterman songs.
All I want for Christmas is you.

Oh yeh, Jimmy Osmond. You can bung Donny Osmond and ‘Puppy Love’ in with him.

Yes, I really think we should Morticia, in fact let’s just do the job properly and be done with it!
Looks like they’ve all simultaneously trodden in something horrible anyway
Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep…Shudder.
I thought that was a joke or something, so I looked it up.
Wow! Very repetitive in just the first minute. And those actually are the lyrics. I could link it but I won’t. You’re welcome, everyone.
I do not know about songs but anything with metal or techno music could go deleted as far as I am concerned.
No, surely your joking Rox, how could you?
That’s got to be the best cheesy pop song of all time. Soley Soley was a cheesy classic too!
I would have thought Middle of The Road were a feather in Scotland’s cap ?
A cheesy feather granted!
Oh no, what have I done?! Since I looked up that song, my youtube feed is filled with cheesy songs from the 50’s and 60’s. Gah! Make it go away!
