In 2006, this website conducted a highly unscientific survey to find the worst song of all time. One year stood out in its bad-song production: 1974.

That included two of the top five -- Terry Jacks' "Seasons in the Sun" and the runaway top choice, Paul Anka's "Having My Baby" -- and several more leading vote-getters, including Paper Lace's "The Night Chicago Died," Maria Muldaur's "Midnight at the Oasis" and Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods' "Billy, Don't Be a Hero."

Summer rewind: Looking back at 1974

And yet the year wasn't a pop-cultural wasteland. Far from it, as a matter of fact. As a year for movies, 1974 is often ranked as the best since the sainted slate of 1939.

The releases included best picture winner "The Godfather Part II," "Chinatown," Mel Brooks' one-two punch of "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein," not to mention disaster movies, revenge flicks, conspiracy thrillers and family features.

I think that's bull flop. They picked out big hits for there day and claim they suck? How about the songs that never made the charts? "Seasons in the Sun", "Having My Baby", and "The Night Chicago Died" are all good songs. I'm not sure about "Midnight at the Oasis" or "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" as i can't recall them of hand, but I doubt they are worst songs ever.

If you want to talk bad songs that were popular you might start with "Achy Breaky Heart".

Midnight at the Oasis is a great song. Achy Breaky is no doubt one of the worst. Anyone remember MY Ding A Ling?

Oh and 1974 had Steely Dan's Pretzel Logic. That one album make any duds that year null and void.

1974 was also the year KISS released their first album.
