Will Young - Light My Fire
and of course...
Cheeky Girls - Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum) :evil:
xox.
I thought those videos were quite good. The Cheeky Girls one was just tongue-in-cheek and strange; it always quite amused me.

Smoke 2 Seven - Been There Done That - Was very bad i remember,

also was watching my old Louise - The Woman In Me Video there yesterday, and another contender for worst video has to be In Walked Love (sorry Lou!!!) Very Cheap and tacky looking now.

:D

The hair. The corset. The blurry background. The 'acting' dancing. And of course the Ready Brek blue glow.

And yes somehow the song is also a guilty pleasure to boot.

Flawlessly bad.

I'm surprised at this, I've always thought If You Had My Love had a great music video. The voyeurism aspect made it extremely memorable, while the minimalistic, modern set looked brilliant. The whole idea of the possibilities the internet could bring was very of its time and made for an interesting (and well executed) concept.

Recent bad music videos that spring to mind include Kanye's Bound 2 and Pixie Lott's Kiss The Stars. Kanye's because the editing was mess and Pixie's because the CGI would have barely been acceptable in 2004 let alone 2012. There are countless from the the early 2000s, 90s and earlier that are horrendous, but I can't think of any bar Liberty X's unforgivable X right now.

That's not the case. I love Rizzle Kicks and Ed Sheeran,Ashley Tisdale and Miley Cyrus are okay for me. Also got nothing against J-Lo. "Skip To The Good Bit" is also an awesome song, just like "If You Had My Love" or "Beat Again".
Ok,urbanmusik's explanation changed my opinion a bit,i just didn't like the concept of the video with the little girl and that weird guy looking like he's going to ... the next second. JLS' videos are just super awkward to watch (imo) and the rest of the videos should be clear.

It's true. I was going to say Your Disco is like an homage to the Made In Heaven video - even down to the glow. :D

Cheap as chips when ironically it was by far the best track off that album and deserved a proper push instead of the dullsville Please Stay.

And as misguided, cheapass cringey Kylie videos go, this mis-step also deserves a mention: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR0B_zZ2qrs

It picks up where the mis-themed Word Is Out video left off. :-?

I think all the Aussies/Jess Mauboy fans will agree with me when I say Get Em Girls is one of the worst videos ever. Terrible song combined with a very bad video that was directed by one of the supposedly better video directors in the industry = hot mess.
Let's embrace the point of no return.

Viva forever video was amazing!, suited the song so well, beautiful song with a beautiful video.

Worst video I can think of is Girls Aloud - Something Kinda Ooh. Nicola and her outfit, Kimberly and her hair, the cars being driven but clearly not moving, they really only had a $20 budget on that one lol. One of my favourite bands ever but that video just makes me cringe!
