Worst Song of All Time

I think it's time to figure out the worst song of all time. I don't mean worst song in a "100 worst songs you love to hate" or bad songs that you enjoy, or any guity pleasure variety. I am not talking about songs like Journey's Don't Stop Believing or Mr. Mister's Broken Wings. Those songs are bad, but they are enjoyable. I'm talking worst song of all time bad. To be worst song of all time, it is not enough for the song to be bad. It has to be bad beyond "guilty pleasure" level. It can't be a bad song that you enjoy. It also can't be just a bad song that you don't enjoy, but one that you can turn off, and "whew, it's gone!" It has to be bad, not fun to listen to, and a song that gets stuck in your head in spite all that.

Nominee number one is that Do You Believe in Life After Love song by Cher. I heard it as I was flipping through radio stations driving to work this morning. My reflexes were quicker than usual and I managed to change stations after "do you be--". I listened to about three more songs on my way to work on different stations, yet here I am, hearing Cher blaring away between my ears, inside my head. Will you please go away!?

Give me your nominees for worst song of all time. This will be like the razzies for music, except not just one year, but of all time.
