I think you are all aware that I am not aware.

This song speaks for itself.

I'm not the only one?

Even before I saw Mike Myers dance to this song in Austin Powers I was a fan. There isn't much else to say other than "sexy."

Fight til you drop.

Everyone knows that Karate Kid is a great movie but does anyone want to admit that they like this song? Care to share other music soundtrack songs that you can't get out of your head once you hear them?

Monday, October 12, 2009

I want to be Brooks and Dunn liking this song. I just can't stop.

Seriously, why do I like this song? I absolutely hate country music. They repeat the same thing over and over again in a high pitched voice. guess there must be something about it. I've lost all credibility now haven't I? *Edit* I wanted to note that I hate "Pop Country" music songs like this one. I didn't want anyone to think that I wouldn't like Cash or Nelson and a other awesome stuff of that ilk.

Instead of taking my breath away these guys make sure I can breath.

Pick your poison with this group. Their entire catalog is so bad it's awesome. When I listen to this track I can picture myself in an 80's sitcom with heart. Not heart the band, heart like warm and fuzzy. Here is your scuba tank.

How do you like your Oates? With some Hall, of course.

It's been a while since I've posted anything. Sometimes the well of shameful likes dries up. I think I have a good one for you here though. You could really listen to any Hall and Oates song and get the same feeling I get with this one. It's horrible, i should hate it, I can't stop listening. At any rate... enjoy the awesomeness that is "I can't go for that"

Nobody puts Swayze in a corner.

This is where I learned to dance so awesome. You know you like it, admit it.

Huey Lewis and the News - Proving it's hip to be square. The list

It used to be hip to be square. Huey Lewis and the news will prove it with this 5 song list of the greatest Huey tracks. Most of them are from the album "Sports" which according to Christian Bale in American Psycho is where it's at. Here is the list from 5-1 with help from my wife.

5. "Hip To Be Square"

4. "Heart of Rock and Roll"

3. Oh my gosh, we have a tie! "If this is it" and "Happy to be Stuck with You"

2. This one is my favorite but I let Steph pick number one. "I Want a New Drug"

1. "Power of Love" You don't need no credit card to ride this train.

Let the good times Roll!

Oh Snap

Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

I'm sorry to have Rick Rolled you. I really do love this song though and the dancing is just tremendous. Enjoy

Britney and JT under the covers.

I found these tracks on thesixtyone which by the way is a great site to find and encourage many new artists. At an rate, these two tracks are interesting takes on a Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake songs. Give them both a chance (especially the second one below.) Go ahead be gone with it.

Monday, August 17, 2009

I'm putting it together and getting it all done.

Come on and climb The 5 Stairsteps onto the Soul Train and feel good about what's going on in your life. I know that I can be lame but this song really does hit that feelgood nerve and make things just a little bit better.

The 5 Stairsteps - Ooh Child

How many Chicago songs would you like to hear? 25 or 6 to 4?

Most of the cheesy Chicago songs were done in the 80's though I still thought I would ask my Dad what his favorite tracks were by them (He is a huge fan.) He didn't pick anything that I don't really want to admit I like but this isn't a band that I would typically admit I like. This band, like the Moody Blues, will totally surprise you with the amount of songs you might like by them. For your listening pleasure: CHICAGO

I'm a Man

25 or 6 to 4 (I still don't know what the hell this title means.)

Top Ten Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #1

Over the past week or so I have submitted what I think are the worst awesomest rap songs I can imagine. There are plenty of tracks deserving mention that didn't make the list but I will reserve those for individual (outside a list) posts. This final track is quite possibly the guiltiest pleasure I have when it comes to music. I absolutely loath two of the rappers that comprise this trio but am oddly entranced every time this song hits the radio. Please open your ears and let P Diddy, Mase and the posthumous B.I.G. make your day.Ain't nuttin changed but my limp bitches. It's like my daddy always said (not really), Mo Money, Mo Problems - #1 is coming.

Notorious B.I.G. - Mo Money, Mo Problems

Top Ten Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #2

"I miss my uncle charles y'all." My favorite rap lyric of all time from a worst awesome type of song. I don't know why really. I mean, i know they use my name but it's not really exceptional writing or anything but for some reason I just like it. The rest of the track does not let down as it asks "Why'd you kill my dog".... blah blah blah bone bone bone. Plenty of awesome harmonies and a visual appearance of Easy E from heaven. Just give it a listen and you will know why it ends up on my list at #2.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony - Crossroads

bone bone bone bone, bone, bone, bone bone bone (Doesn't have the same ring in text)

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #3

Everyone loves a good nursery rhyme done with some rap flair and a loop of Peter Gabriels - Sledgehammer. The douchebag Vanilla Ice in the video is hysterical and it is really hard to beat R.A.P.E. (Rappers against phony entertainers.) This song actually made #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. woot. Pop pop goes #3.

3rd Bass - Pop Goes the Weasel

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #4

Front to back on this list about rap you won't find a harder song!Seriously though, this list is getting kinda hectic. It might break my heart apart. I will not let it though because I've got the power. Let's hope that you comp can keep up with this gem. Peace, stay off my back.

Snap - The Power

I'm starting to miss the awesome rap already.... What to do next?

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #5

I wish I was a much better blogger, I wish I could play Frogger. I wish I had a laptop, like a Mac and a championship logger. Oh well, I am not a rapper for a reason. Here goes #5

Skee Lo - I wish

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #6

Everyone would like a magic cane that will melt a bike and turn in into a car. If you did you would be able to take some kind of awesome journey, or better yet a Fantastic Voyage!This song qualifies for the list because of all of the life lessons I learn when listening to it. Gems like these:
1. You can't help me if you can't help yourself.
2. Try to keep your faith in your people (even when they actin evil).
3. Life is a bitch and then you die. Still trying to get a piece of that apple pie.
4. Stay suckah free to keep the busters of your jock.
5. When your living in the city it's do or die.
I think you get the picture so start frontin! Just roll along to #6 fools.

Coolio - Fantastic Voyage

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #7Ha

Is it getting hot in here? It must be at least 400 degreez. That's how hot it gets when you have the greatest rhyme scheme of all time ha. Here is number 7:

Juvenile - Ha

Unfortunately i love this damn tune. You ain't scared ha? Did you switch from Nike's to Reebok's ha?

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #8's

I am totally going to have to cheat for number 8. There are 5 songs that I really want to place in this spot so I am going to post all of them. In essence this will be the top 5 number 8 songs. You should be happy as there is more awesome for you. Here we go with the number 8's!

Partners In Krymes - TURTLE Power

The first of two songs on the number 8's from the Turtle franchise. In this day and age who could ask for more?

Vanilla Ice - Ninja Rap

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go! nuff said~

Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

I am well aware that this song is way to obvious but it is way to awful and brilliant. I mean, it was written by a 16 year old preppy kid that claimed he was from the ghetto whose last name is Van Winkle. It doesn't get any better than that. My guess is that this song will be cooking MC's like a pound of bacon for a very long time. Next up - Be prepared to get hammered.

MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This

I'm about to put on my Hammer Pants and dance all over your face. Seriously, that's how I'm living and you know you can't touch this. Not hammered enough? Let's get more hammered!

MC Hammer - Addams Family

This is just bad. I have no idea why i let this one on the list.

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever #9

Ok, when Mark Wahlberg showed up at my house and yelled, "Let me on your fucking list!" (You have seen Fear right?), I had to do exactly that. The number 9 track is:

Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Top 10 Worst Awesomest Rap Songs Ever

Typically, I would say that I hate any song that might be labeled as rap. This list will exemplify how truly bad rap can be but also show the part of me that doesn't want to admit that it likes rap,but still does. Let's get started with Number 10:

Snow - Informer

I'll admit it, I have no idea what this guy is saying without cheating and looking up the lyrics. What the hell is a leeky boom boom? Sounds like someone needs to visit the restroom. You might actually crap yourself as you listen to this song.

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Top 5 80's Songs - Number 1 (Would anyone like a vegemite sandwich?)

Men at Work - Land Down Under

A song about all of the great things in the Australian outback; Vegemite, flowing beer, men chundering and Zombie. It is so good that it makes a flute actually work in a rock song. This might also be the worlds first literal video! Please enjoy the greatest song that came out of the 80's!

Friday, July 17, 2009

Top 5 80's Songs - Number 2 (I'm gonna kick some ass with my own pipewrench.)

A-ha - Take On Me

This is easily my favorite video of the 80's but the song isn't quite good enough to take top spot. For those of you that haven't seen the literal video of this song you should check it out here. Hilarious

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Top 5 80's Songs - Number 3

Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come on Eileen

The hardest song I have ever tried to sing along to. There is not much to say about it other then it's one of the biggest one hit wonders of all time. I've listened to other tracks of theirs and nothing even comes close. Also, they look like a bunch of hobo's.

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Top 5 80's Songs - Number 4

Queen - Under Pressure

With a bass line that would later help Vanilla Ice sell millions of records and two of the greatest vocalists ever in the rock genre it would be a giant mistake not to include this on the list. I can remember listening to my parents vinyl copy of Queen's greatest hits and literally bouncing off of the walls during this track.

Here is another great track with the word pressure in the title that would have fallen somewhere in the top 100 had I made a list that large.

Billy Joel - Pressure

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Top 5 80's Songs - Number 5

Bon Jovi - Living on a Prayer

Bon Jovi - Livin on a Prayer

Not only was this song one of my favorites as a child but it was my three year old sons first favorite song. Not to mention that my mother would likely kill me if I didn't include a Bon Jovi song on this list. Enjoy.

80's Week, Month or Year.

What can I say, I spent many of my impressionable years in the 80's watching T.V. and listening to music. For the next week month or year I plan on bringing you some of the best and worst (all stuff that you will have to admit that you like.) If you have any suggestions on the things you would like to see please let me know and I'll get them up here. It's gonna be a party, you see.

Why don’t you take your face back inside and enjoy this?

Okay – I think that everyone can agree that The Goonies is one of the greatest films of all time. In a time prior to soundtracks being a big deal it was noteworthy that well known artist was making a song and subsequent video that took place on the set of the movie. If that isn’t awesome enough you get to see nearly all of your favorite baddie wrestlers from the 80’s. I know that it is a little long and hearing the chorus of the song can get a bit tedious but I would suggest that you sit back and relax and enjoy the Lauper.

Happy Mother's Day

Everyone loves Mr. T. Especially when he pulls a mic out of the back of his pants and starts dancing and singing sweet music about your mother.

Rolling with the fatness...

Getting paid is a forte.... I don't even know if I need to tell a story about this awesomeness. I used to roll with my friend 1 Pound and blast this track. So white, so white.

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Everybody look at your hands?

I won't lie and tell you that I have any idea what the "Safety Dance" lyrics mean but I know that one of the clearest indications that a song is worth it's salt is that Weird Al covers it. Midget jesters in the video don't hurt either. As a kid I used to run around the house playing the imaginary flute whilst listening to this song. 1983 - What a great year for music about dancing! Here is another with no comments necessary.

Everyone likes a miracle!

Hang tight through the beginning of this video if you want to witness the miracle. Mike and Mechanics were always in the shadow of genesis but in my opinion wrote some fantastic songs. Heart breakers like "The Living Years" and good pop love songs like the one above. I wonder if this actually qualifies as a song you might not admit you like but it was too good for me personally to pass up.

Best Show Forever?

I originally started watching Idol because I had to see the people who were absolutely terrible try out for the show. While that remains incredibly satisfying to this day (see above) I have also come to realize that there are some truly talented and worthwhile contestants. Do I follow them after they leave the show? I own Taylor Hicks album and listened to it a few time but no, I do not keep up. I'll be honest though. The top 24 or 36 (whatever they are doing that year) is just some damn good television. Sure the performances can suck but every once in a while there is a magical moment that just blows you away which makes Idol a show you have to admit that you like.

Who you calling a cantaloupe you melonhead?

Nearly everyday of my Highschool life my friend and I would hightail it off of the bus so we could catch the "Saved By the Bell" power hour. Thank Zack for the extra 5 minutes that TBS would give us or we never would have caught the sweet, sweet intro above. From Jessie's battle with caffeine pills to the gang trying to save The Max this was one of those shows that you would watch and not have any idea why you were doing it. Who wouldn't love a show that switches from Indianapolis, Indiana to California without any explanation. That is just one example of the excellent writing on this show. I miss you "Saved By the Bell."

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Every now and then I fall apart... a little.

One of the greatest love songs ever! This raspy over the top little number is great comedy when it's farsed and just a damn good song in general. There is nothing I could do, i had to totally post this song.

Construction with Power Chords

I think it's pretty damn cool that people that appear out of nowhere have the power to build cities with vocals and instruments. I always wondered what city it was they were talking about though. Did they mean "world"? Oh wait, they are talking about Vegas and the giant dice that try to kill everyone. CRAPS!

Friday, March 13, 2009

MMM Delicious!

Thank the good lord! I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to find an embeddable version of this song anywhere on the Internet. Seems as if the Hanson boys decided that they wouldn't allow people the privilege. Here is the deal though, when it comes to music, this track and a certain Backstreet Boys song that will come up later down the line are really what this place is all about. Both songs are fantastic and no one in their right mind would admit that they like them. Now is your chance to break free from the chains that Wilson Phillips sang about below.

Also, if you have any interest in recommending something that no one would admit they like (Music, Book, Movie etc...) I would be happy to hear about it. I love you guys as much as I love the crap you'll hear and see here.

Hasta la Pasta.

Skip It, America!

I personally don't have much to say about this track but apparently it was a reliable little ditty as my wife made her way across the country. Here is what she has to say:

"Wilson Phillips ~ "Hold On"

This song was used quite a bit in the documentary Skip It, America! (yet to be released) by myself and Lauren Branks. There were times during our journey across America when we felt we could skip no more, but time and again, we would call each other and sing this old stand-by, and after a few tears and a lot of pitchiness, we made it. "Yeah I know that there is pain but you hold on for one more day and you break free, break from the chains." Thank you Wilson Phillips. Thank you, "Hold On." "

A band on a book, singing about africa.

I was once threatened by a customer when i worked at Music Trader in San Diego to shut this song off or he would walk out of the store. I told him where the door was. If you follow this blog you will likely be shown where the door is multiple times.
