[BEST OF 2010] TOP #666 : the worst tracks of the year

As I'll be publishing my top 30 tracks of the year next Monday, I thought I'd give you a little preview... Well not really. While it was really difficult to list the tracks I've loved and been listening to extensively during the year, it proved quite easy to pick a few tracks that have been bothering me.
Oh yeah, some atrocious song made their way to the top of the charts and here's a little peak at what we've had to deal with in 2010. Watch your ears!

Listen to the tracks here, if you dare! (Spotify link)

#666-1. Black Eyed Peas - The Time (Dirty Bit)

Worst song ever ?? Yes. If Patrick Swayze were still alive he'd probably have sued them for producing the year's most awful piece of "music".

#666-2. Cheryl Cole - Promise This

I actually felt bad for all people involved. Truly horrific. That chorus. That "Alouette" bit. That pronounciation. Everything screams "cheap", "rushed" and "terribly opportunistc".
#666-3. Ke$ha - Any single she released this year...

...Cause they're basically all the same. Except each one's worse than the previous one. Even her dirty pictures are awful. This girl's a total fail. Except people buy her crap.

#666-4. Rihanna - Only Girl (In The World)

Despite acceptable verses, this overly-autotuned yelling affair is really mediocre. I mean really. Rihanna : please never sing this live anymore. Thanks.

#666-5. The Saturdays - Missing You

Duh this half-ballad-half-not-ballad thing is so ridiculous it should never have left the studio. Too bad for us it did.

#666-6. Usher - OMG / Nicki Minaj - Any song she featured on this year.

Any song. Yeah exactly "OMG". It's a tie. Two of Will.I.Am's stabs at music in 2010. F### off, buddy, seriously.

My recommandation for 2011 : no more Will.I.Am. At all. Thank you very much.

"Even her dirty pictures are awful."

This sounds A LOT like what you said with Laura Leishman. Anyway, it's funny !
I agree with every song in this list (except, maybe, for Nicki Minaj...)

Yup, I only have one joke per artist per year. ;)
