Des'ree Has Worst Lyrics According To BBC Listeners

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — British pop songstress Des'ree has garnered an award for her 1998 song "Life" — the problem is its an award for worst ever lyrics in a pop song. The contribution to the corpus of modern music which earned her such recognition were the lyrics "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."

The BBC awarded the uncoveted title after the singer received nearly 30 percent of the vote in a hotly-contested radio poll. A close runner up was the band Snap! for their lyric "I'm as serious as cancer/ When I say rhythm is a dancer" and third place went to Razorlight for the bon motte "And I met a girl/ She asked me my name/ I told her what it was". – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
