A vote for the worst lyric in pop has awarded the dubious title to soul singer Des'ree's hit Life.

The offending lines are "I don't want to see a ghost/It's the sight that I fear most/I'd rather have a piece of toast/Watch the evening news".

Listeners to Marc Riley's BBC6 Music show have been voting for the past three weeks on a top 10 list of shame.


1. Des'ree - Life
2. Snap - Rhythm is a Dancer
3. Razorlight - Somewhere Else
4. ABC - That Was Then But This is Now
5. U2 - Elevation
6. Toto - Africa
7. Oasis - Champagne Supernova
8. Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know?
9. Human League - The Lebanon
10. Black Sabbath - War Pigs

Snap should have won, purely on the grounds of tastelessness alone!

Too many doo-doos in the Des'ree song too. I used to call it 'The doo-doo song'

what about Ricky Martins "you talk to me you give me the news, you wear me out like a pair of shoes" from La Vida Loca.
That line makes me laugh every time.
