Comments so far

Music has degenerated so rapidly over the last 15 years, I find it quite hard to only find ten!A top 200 would be more appropriate.

Austria, Vienna
I have the disagree. "The Girl Is Mine" by Paul and Michael are by far one of those songs that I enjoy hearing when driving in the car etc...

Chris, San Diego
Wow - this list is rubbish. Does nobody recall that Elton John has a duet with Ru Paul? What about Picture by Sheryl Crowe and Kid Rock? Or when Natalie Cole ruined her father's song?Also, how do you have Band Aid on here? A. It isn't really a duet. B. It's a Christmas song, which shouldn't be held to the same standard. C. It's actually pretty good and made a ton of money to stop hunger and D. There was a second version of this song that was truly terrible - at least make it that version of the song.

Chris B, Cardiff
They're all pants and deserve to be there. I wouldn't change them at all.

vegard, telemark - norway
this is just stupid....most of these people are on the list because they are famous for making good music, and unfortunately made a couple that is not that good! But calling them worst is not correct, take a look at all the crap that is released today....way worse than these songs

Stella , Kilmore
Hard to tell apart from the best TBH. A real mixed bag . Tom Jones/AON - Kiss would have been in my top 10.

Pradeep, Mi, USA
This is outrageous. I think half of the songs listed are very good.

:) Coventry
Pete Doherty was very nervous, to be fair.

James/ HW
I think that elton john and george michael duet is brilliant

Richard, Glasgow
I'd have to disagree with a lot of these except for Girls Aloud & The Sugababes - that was such an irritating cover!I really like Ebony and Ivory and the Girl is Mine - a little cheesy but still good songs.

Martin, London
I'm one of the biggest Girls Aloud fans out there, but I'm sorry to say that they truly deserve to be in that Top 10 - "Walk This Way" was horrendous.
