dotmusic, a UK music site, has just published a list of what its users voted the ten most irritating songs of all time.

Topping the list of shame is the execrable 1981 classic The Birdie Song by The Tweets - which reached an unbelievable number two in the UK - closely followed by the emetic Barbie Girl by Aqua and the vile Teletubbies.

dotmusic Editor Andy Strickland said: "The Tweets are worthy winners of the number one position. While we wait for this year's answer to the Macarena, it is worth reflecting on some atrocities of the past."

That top ten of shame in full:
1. Birdie Song The Tweets
2. Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh Teletubbies
3. Barbie Girl Aqua
4. Agadoo Black Lace
5. I Should Be So Lucky Kylie Minogue
6. We're Going To Ibiza Vengaboys
7. Grandma We Love You St.Winfred's School Choir
8. Shaddap Your Face Joe Dolce Music Theatre
9. Achy Breaky Heart Billy Ray Cyrus
10. Lady In Red Chris De Burgh

We reckon Chris De Burgh gets off pretty lightly at number ten and that there are a number of glaring omissions. Where, for example, is Deck of Cards by Wink Martindale? Can there really be no place for Ruby, don't take your love to town? And what about Grand Funk Railroad, Britney Spears and The Grateful Dead?

Who would you include in a list of the worst records of all time?

Or the worst computer products of all time, come to that. ®
