"My Favourite Waste of Time" (also known as "You're My Favourite Waste of Time") is a single recorded by Scottish singer Owen Paul and released in 1986. It remains his biggest hit single, reaching number 3 on the UK chart in July 1986.
This song features future Thunder member Mark Luckhurst on bass. It was famously aborted on the television programme Pebble Mill at One when the band members just stood still instead of miming as they were unable to hear the backing track.
Paul is usually considered as a "one-hit wonder" because of the song's popularity and the fact that it was his only UK chart single. It is said[by whom?] that Paul hated the song so much, he quit the music business.
In 2008, the song featured in a Coco Pops Coco Rocks commercial.
