"Two Princes" by Spin Doctors
Right Here, Right Now by Jesus Jones
A woman on the radio talks about revolution when it’s already passed her by…
St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion) by John Parr
Ahhh, St. Valentine’s Day. I promise no cliche love song today. Actually i decided to feature a one hit wonder about a different “Saint” - One that sounds like it belongs on a “burning” Sesame Street.
All The Things She Said by t.a.t.u.
The Sochi Olympics begin today, so i thought it fitting to select Russia’s most successful musical export of the past two decades. Quite ironically (given all the controversy) this female duo made quite the splash with the video to their big hit in which they partake in extremely passionate kissing…with each other.
Monkey by George Michael
Alas, this song isn’t about Marcel or Annie’s Boobs. However, the artist singing did have his own one of these (metaphorically speaking) - although something tells me he’d much rather have had his own pair of Annie’s Boobs (NOT metaphorically speaking).
The Rhythm Of The Night by Corona
Praise You by Fatboy Slim
This British DJ had a huge hit with this dance song in 1999. The unforgettable video features a fictional “dance troop” performing an “impromptu” routine outside none other than UCLA’s Bruin Theatre in Westwood.
Black Cat by Janet Jackson
Since it’s Friday the 13th i figured i’d feature a song about one of the UNLUCKIEST charms of them all!
Frozen by Madonna
You’ll have to excuse my lack of creativity for this week’s selection. Given the temperatures the past few days here in California, it’s safe to say my brain (along with everything else on my body) is well…FROZEN. One of my all time favorites from Her Majesty.
Sunglasses At Night by Corey Hart
Okay, let’s all face it. This song is complete cheeze (with a ‘z’). But while most cheezy songs from the 80’s and 90’s are usually mocked endlessly and into music oblivion never to be heard from again. But i feel this song, seemed to have bucked that trend. Oddly, the breakout hit by the 80’s Canadian heartthrob still maintains a certain coolness to it. A smooth, bad ass vibe that’s wrapped into a synth-pop cheeseball of a song - that i still love to this day.
I Wish by Skee-Lo
This one goes out to all the short, non-dunking or jump-shooting, single, non magicians of the world. =) This rap hit EPITOMIZES “one-hit wonder.”
