Worst Songs of the 60s

60s experts, legitimately post what you think are the worst songs of the 60s. Don't be nostalgic and say none, because I won't take that as an answer. The 60s certainly had some bad songs.

The Top TenXW

1She Loves You - The Beatles

How is this and love me do in the top three! - RalphBob

You know what? Now that I think about it, I Want My Baby Back should've been on the top three. I realized the flaw on my list... Oh. But still, She Loves You and Love Me Do were not pleasant to listen to. Maybe it's because they're so boring and annoying. - TheMusicNerd

While I do like The Beatles, this is easily their worst song. This song can only be described as annoying. The verses are terribly written, the lyrics are incredibly generic(this is a love song, after all), the chorus is one of the worst things I have ever heard. - TheMusicNerd

My man, EVERY Beatles song that they wrote themselves before like 1965 is a love song - Erucu

This one beatle song is better than all the rap songs ever recorded put together.

2It Hurts to Be In Love - Gene Pitney
3Love Me Do - The Beatles
4Roses Are Red (My Love) - Bobby Vinton
5Love Me Warm and Tender - Paul Anka

Don't get me wrong, I like Paul Anka's music a lot, but this song is horrible. - TheMusicNerd

6A World Without Love - Peter & Gordon
7Chapel of Love - The Dixie Cups

Most of the song is the chorus, which is horrible. This doesn't sound like something a serious label would release. Like most love songs of the 60s, the lyrics are generic, but the constantly repeating chorus was the worst part of this song. - TheMusicNerd

8I Want My Baby Back - Jimmy Cross

I'm not even sure Jimmy Cross was thinking properly when he wrote this crap. He sounds annoying, too. - TheMusicNerd

9Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen

I cannot believe that something this irritating was actually released by a label. - TheMusicNerd

You must be confusing this song with "Bird's The Word" by The Rivingtons, that was a very bad song, but "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen was excellent.

Now I am really confused, was that other song, "Papa Oom Mow Mow" by the Rivingtons or the Trashmen?

10Revolution 9 - The Beatles

Not the worst song The Beatles have made, but definitely their longest and least interesting one. - TheMusicNerd
