Surfing on YouTube made me think of the topic question: what is your least favourite theme song for a movie?
Two stand out for me:
- Paul McCartney’s title song for the 1985 comedy ‘Spies Like Us’. Hated that song when I heard it years ago and still hate it now. Probably surpasses ‘Coming Up’ and ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’ as my least favourite McCartney song.
- MC Hammer’s infamous ‘Addams Grove’ for the 1991 big-screen version of ‘The Addams Family’. It’s bad enough that it’s such an obnoxious tune, but it’s even worse considering how ill-fitting it is for the film (and such a poor substitute for the theme song of the 1960s TV series).
Feel free to add as many as you wish.
