Pop music produces great songs, however, there are some corny songs that you might have heard and enjoyed. Despite gaining negative feedbacks from critics and those pop music haters, they still became popular as they were undeniably catchy. Here are my list of corny songs which became popular.
Los Del Rio- Macarena
Everybody danced in this Spanish dance hit in mid-’90s and went to numbet one worldwide. I remember then when I can hear this song anywhere then.
Las Ketchup- Asereje
Despite controversies of subliminal message this song contain, it became a worldwide hit, though success in the US is limited. It still became one of the biggest selling singles in 2002. I know many danced in this song but the dance steps and the song itself is corny.
Cheeky Girls- Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum)
This song was sung by duo Cheeky Girls. This introductory song of theirs went to number 2 in the UK and scored high peak position in some countries. Honestly, I find it corny and not cheeky.
Steps- 5, 6, 7, 8
This song from UK pop group Steps has been successful particularly in Asia and Australia. I feel this song is cheesy especially its dance steps.
Crazy Frog- Axel F
This song may sound funny, but it is corny too. The song surprisingly went to number one in many countries and even a Billboard Hot 100 placement.
Eiffel 65- Blue (Da Ba Dee)
I kinda dislike this song then but I admit it is catchy. The song topped the charts worldwide particularly in Europe and even made a top 10 position in the US.
O-Zone- Dragostea din tei
I honestly find this song too annoying and hear it often on the radio. It became a hit worldwide as it placed at number one. It was also interpolated by T.I. wth his number one hit with Rihanna “Live Your Life”.
Vengaboys- We Like to Party
This song is too corny but catchy enough to be liked. It has become a hit in 1999 and even hit the top 30 of Billboard Hot 100.
The song has been hitting the chart in 1997 and went to number one. Despite its corniness, it is my favorite song in this list.
Aqua- Barbie Girl
The song was too cartoonish which made it corny as well as Len’s voice. It’s lyrics was even highly criticized, however, it still became a worldwide number 1 hit and still highly recognized until now.
