display_description When funnyman Dave Barry asked readers about their least favorite tunes, he thought he was penning just another installment of his weekly syndicated humor column. But the witty writer was flabbergasted by the response. "I have never written a column that got a bigger response than the one announcing the Bad Song Survey," Barry wrote. "More than ten thousand readers voted, and the cards are still coming in." Based on the results from Dave Barry's monumental survey, Dave. Barry's Book of Bad Songs is a compilation of some of the worst songs ever written, including such special categories as Teen Death Songs, Songs That People Always Get Wrong, Songs Women Hate, and, of course, Weenie Music. In Dave's survey, honors for Worst Overall and Worst Lyrics went to "MacArthur Park" as sung by Richard Harris in the seventies. As Barry notes, "It's hard to argue with this selection. My son, Rob, was going through a pile of ballots, and he asked me. How "MacArthur Park" goes, so I sang it, giving it my best shot, and Rob laughed so hard that when I got to the part about leaving the cake out in the rain, and it took so long to bake it, and I'll never have that recipe again, Rob was on the floor."
