Worst music videos ever?

Okay, well I really don't know if this has been done before, but it's just an idea!

Anyways, I got Ana Ann's first single today for 49p in Smiths and I was just watching the video, and well, it really has to be one of the crappiest things ever! Basically it's her being a bit of a 'playa' and dating all these 'celebrities'... well obviously on their budget of £2.50 and half a shoelace, they couldn't afford the real people, so instead, we get people who look nothing like Will Smith, David Beckham, Prince William or Elton John :o And yeah, basically it's just damn terrible, bless her! So that kinda inspired the start of this thread...

So I'm sure there's been hundreds of others, but what do you reckon are some of the worst music videos, ever? All the ones I can think of basically involve cheapo wannabe British popstars like Ana Ann... Boysterous, Jemini, V :lol:

The award has to go to everyone's favourite victim of Richard Hilman... Tracy Shaw! :lol:

Her first single 'Happenin all over again' had this really awful video which was shot cheaply in London. She just basically went into a phonebox and made a call! :lol:

I remember her going on Select MTV to plug her second single 'Riding high'. They teased her about the crap first video and she was like "I know. It was awful! But this one is a bit better"
So they showed it....
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
It was something like her against a white wall in a cowboy hat! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

How do I remember this?
:o
It's not something i'm likely to ever forget! :lol:

I was gonna say Ana Ann straight away! :lol:

Pop!'s "Heaven And Earth" video is crap, for such a hyped band anyway.

99% of early-mid 90s Dance choons have awful videos, even the best classics, it was always just a woman striking poses in different coloured backgrounds with the wind machine on!

Heh, I just remembered the video that really, really is the worst ever :o

Thankfully for the rest of the world, I think this only managed to take over The Box music channel here in the UK for a couple of weeks, everywhere else was left unharmed!

Yes, for those who are unfortunate enough to remember, it's Jamie West - Ride A White Swan :lol: Basically, it involved a really scarey, scantily-clad Jamie West wearing a series of themed costumes (beach wear, cowgirl and the like) and getting very wet - miming badly to a very crap cover version! Which, if it was anyone else, wouldn't have been sooo bad :o :lol:

OMG I remember her too, she was on a horse I think at one point! :lol:

Tracy Shaw tried so hard to justify her Pop career when it all went belly-up, she was asked about it once on some Soap program on ITV2 and she said something like "Oh it went really well, the single got to number... err... 12 I think! But I've decided acting is what I want to do!" :lol:

I never saw the video, but that's one of the most hideously ruined covers I've ever had the misfortune of hearing.

The European version of the Foo Fighters 'Times Like These' had an appalling video... just the band playing with a load of swirling colours in the background. The US version was good though.

EDIT: The Hazzards! Noooooo! Kill me now!
This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

I never saw the Tracy Shaw video but saw "live" performance: it was actually mimed and sounded like a cheap kareoke song.

My votes go to:

* Jemini - Cry Baby - it matched the song - downright cheap.

* Anna Ann's three singles - Cheap in the sixth degree especially "I Aplogise" which was her and this black girl going round on a jeep round Spain or some exotic European location dancing around like a pair of eejits.

* Rik Waller - I Will Always Love You - White background with a cringe-worthy bloke making it even worse.

* Blessd - Boo - Anyone remember this nine-piece band in mid-2002? Very dodgy video where they climb out of a pub toilet window, the girls start "dancing" in the middle of the road dressed as cheap whores and at the end some dodgy green background with "Dodgy Dave the DJ geezer" spinning the decks.

*Blazin' Squad - Crossroads- Strider's Dad decided to film hin son's god-awful band's video on the local motorway.

Tracey Shaw not only takes the biscuit she takes the Mr Kipling cakes too :lol:

I really remember the video because as Dazzle said not something you would forget. Another worst video is Busted – You Said No…it’s like so total fake skater trash.

If a videos bad or boring I probably wont watch it.

Jamie West - I haven't see her video, but I am sure she will get far with her big brown eyes. She's an ordinary girl with regular legs, regular ass and slightly more than regular tits :wink:

F*** off is it! It was really expensive looking. The gayest video ever yes. Worst? No way.

I don't like Nelly Furtado's videos, it's the same whenever she's in a video or performing on stage, she acts like a complete berk and makes me cringe, however, she is a brilliant vocalist!

I also really didn't like the video to Love Inc. - You're A Superstar

I can't be bothered to think right now! :-?

Maybe not in that, it was more directed to the way she acts in certain parts of the 'Powerless' video.

I hate Britney's LUCKY, to be honest, I don't like more of her videos, but LUCKY is the worst.

Meh, for Britney... "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman" would fit that title... the scenery is beautiful, but it's just there... cliff, blahblahblah...

Not to forget the song is also hideous... as is Lucky.

Just stumbled over this topic and thought I'd bump it up, although I can't really think of any recent songs to add to this!

Going back to Jamie West though, I found this clip of what was meant to be her second single here in the UK. :o
