Westlife woe in student poll

Have your say

NOISE annoys – and Sheffield University students have nominated Irish balladeers Westlife as purveyors of the most sickening songs of all time.

Students voted for their top 10 worst songs of all time as part of a noise abatement campaign by the university’s Students’ Union – and ‘anything by Westlife’ came top.

In second place came Crazy Frog’s eponymous hit, while in third came Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus.

Noise Action Week 2012 was an extension of the student union’s Staying Up Keep it Down campaign which runs throughout the year.

It raises students’ awareness of the potential impact they may have on other students and local residents if they make noise in residential areas late at night, causing disruption and distress.
