The People's Choice is an album by Komar and Melamid, with the help of musician Dave Soldier. Komar and Melamid usually had been making "The Most Wanted/Unwanted Paintings" for a while, based on what people in a certain country liked and didn't like in a painting. They were approached by Dave Soldier to translate this into music, and the result was two songs: "The Most Wanted Song" and "The Most Unwanted Song." By far, the latter is the more famous of the two, for obvious reasons.
Tropes applying to both
- The Something Song: The Most Wanted and Unwanted, respectively.
