Terrible tracks on otherwise brilliant albums: your nominations

We asked our readers to tell us what songs they simply don't appreciate from albums they otherwise adore

Earlier today we asked readers across Twitter and Facebook to nominate terrible songs that marr otherwise brilliant albums. Here are a few of the responses we received (not all of which we agree with, we hasten to add.) Do you concur with these suggestions? What others would you nominate? Let us know in the comment thread below.

On Twitter

@guardianmusic Within You Without You, Sgt Pepper. George's foray into Indian music was good on Revolver, but jujt boring here.

@guardianmusic Student Demonstration Time on the Beach Boys Surf's Up. Like there suddenly being a car chase in Cinema Paradiso.

— Fourfoot (@fourfoot) July 11, 2014


@guardianmusic Electronic Renaissance, in Tigermilk by Belle & Sebastian. The rest of the album's just mesmerizing.

— Haze (@__kipiani) July 11, 2014

@guardianmusic Controversial - but 'Money' by Pink Floyd is one of the worst songs ever made. Totally out of place on Dark Side Of The Moon.

— Sound Of Confusion (@TSOConfusion) July 11, 2014

@guardianmusic Sky Full of Stars on an otherwise decent Ghost Stories. It's like putting a bull in a spa.

— Ron Walker (@ronnabe) July 11, 2014

@guardianmusic I've warmed to its ridiculousness over the years, but Leonard Cohen's Jazz Police is a contender

@guardianmusic Shiny Happy People.

@guardianmusic Yellow Submarine on Revolver.

On Facebook

"Digsy's Dinner on Oasis's Definitely Maybe." Drew Gibson

"Mr Tembo on Damon Albarn's Everyday Robots. The wistful, melancholy mood is ruined by a happy-clappy song about a baby elephant." Sean Hannam

"Ancestors on Medúlla by Björk. It's one of my favourite albums but has one of her worst tracks on it." Ste Burns

"Don't Stop on The Stone Roses. Ambitious, but it just doesn't work." Nathan Williamson

"Miami - Total Life Forever by Foals." Thomas Witcombe
