‘The Most Unwanted Song’ Scientifically ComposedBy Morelli
Composer Dave Soldier and artists Komar & Melamid took an online poll on their website, and then used the data to scientifically compose “The Most Unwanted Song” of all time. The song is twenty-two minutes and features instruments like bagpipes, tubas and the banjo, with political slogans, advertising jingles and cowboy lyrics. They manage to translate into orchestral rock-band church-music punctuated with high pitched sounds and abrupt changes in pace and mood that they claim:
“Fewer than 200 individuals of the world’s total population will enjoy this.”

The fact is, it isn’t very difficult to listen to. The composers at least haven’t made the song so dense that you can’t distinguish the different instruments. Opera singing and children chanting must have rated low on their poll, for those are the vocals you hear throughout. Komar & Melamid had previously created the “People’s Choice Series” in 1994, consisting of the “most wanted” and “most unwanted” paintings of 11 countries.
What do you think? Is this the most unwanted song or have you heard worse?
