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.

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.

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.

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
