Top 10 Worst Billboard Year-End #1 Hit Songs of All Time

This is a year based on a series of lists that i have been making in the last couple of days where i rank the Year-End #1 hit songs between the 1950s through the 2000s (user Martinglez already made a list for the 2010s) so in this one i will say which one are the 10 worst songs from those lists combined, by the way don't worry, a list made for the best ones is coming up too
The Top Ten
1 Love Will Keep Us Together - Captain & Tennille Love Will Keep Us Together - Captain & Tennille Cover Art

Is it just me who finds it interesting your number one pick is the same year of Bohemian Rhapsody's release which might show 1975 wasn't as great for music as everyone says due to that song?

Year-End #1 Song of 1975: This song is a complete joke, from all the songs in the 70s, this aged the worse by a long shot, the fact that from all the songs in 1975 this was picked as the biggest one, shows how questionable the general taste was there, this represents the worst side of the 1970s, thank god this song got forgotten in time

2 (Everything I Do) I Do It for You - Bryan Adams (Everything I Do) I Do It for You - Bryan Adams Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 1991: Being one of the greatest years in music history and this one being the biggest song from it, was the most disappointing fact of the year, I get that the general pop taste was different at that time but why couldn't they pick a more tolerable song? Luckily just as Love Will Keep Us Together it got forgotten with time

I agree that this song is terrible but I don’t know if it’s been forgotten it has a pretty high number of plays on Spotify for a song of that era.

3 Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 2009: It's hilarious how hard it tries to sound "futuristic" and groundbreaking but just ends up sounding extremely dated, it might not be the worst song The Black Eyed Peas made in their career, but the fact it was as big as it was shows how bad the artist who made it has the poorest taste ever

4 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran Shape of You - Ed Sheeran Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 2017: Everyone has said that this is one of the most boring songs in music history, and they have a point, it's hilarious how a love song can be this souless and derivative, and the fact that it was so big and inescapable makes even more unessential

There was way better and more deserving songs from that year. It wasn’t even Ed Sheeran’s best.

5 Believe - Cher Believe - Cher Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 1999: The fact that Cher managed to have a hit after a long time it's impressive, not going to lie... but the fact that it was a autotuned mess dated faster and worse than a bottle of milk makes it extremely disappointing as a comeback song, let alone the biggest song in her career

6 Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright) - Rod Stewart Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright) - Rod Stewart Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 1977: Long story short: It's the Shape of You of the 1970s, simple, souless, slow, derivative, boring, and both being love songs with lyrics so cheesy and stupid makes me doubt about the general audiences taste in 2 really different times

7 Bad Day - Daniel Powter Bad Day - Daniel Powter Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 2006: One of the whiniest and fakest songs ever, everything about it is disappointing

8 Song from Moulin Rouge - Percy Faith Song from Moulin Rouge - Percy Faith Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 1953: It's low key a classic Disney movie theme, not lying, now that itself isn't a problem but the fact that it doesn't go nowhere shows how forgettable this one gets

9 God's Plan - Drake God's Plan - Drake Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 2018: Drake's biggest song in the charts and also one of it's most forgettable, it's far from being his worst (specially in the year where everyone lost respect for him), but it's still depressing that this thing was the song of the year

10 Look Away - Chicago Look Away - Chicago Cover Art

Year-End #1 Song of 1989: Same as God's Plan, a song that is just background noise in the most dated and generic sound of it's decade
