Everyone has them, those mp3s that when they play in a randomly sorted Winamp list you frantically leap to the computer and yelp, “Holy moly, I can’t believe that so-and-so downloaded that on my computer!” I’m not going to lie, I got all of these willingly.
Here’s the pick (mostly) of the litter:
Astrud Gilberto – The Girl From Ipanema
This is the song they have to put in every movie at least once. Somewhere. Twice in French films. Best elevator song ever.
Babylon Zoo – Spaceman
My first thought is that this song may date me and my musical ignorance. I loved this song though. And the kid singing it was way pre-modern emo too. Hotly so, strangely enough. But maybe I’m remembering the wrong video.
Brittany Spears – Toxic
Come on, that strange violin thing in the background [Is it violins?] doesn’t make you want to grab your spandex leotard and get all sexed up in an aerobic class? No?
Proof that acne scarring should not bar anyone from becoming a sex symbol. That is, a late 1980s – early 1990s sex symbol. And that time is long gone no matter what the leg warmers tell you.
She had two good songs. I have them both.
Play that one song, you know the one… *snaps fingers* Damn, the one from that one album…Hey… that’s not what I was thinking of…but… really, it’s all the same song anyhow.
Sean Paul – Temperature
I get a lot of heat for this one. [Bwahaha, heat! Get it! HEAT!] But let me say to you, this is such a good song for belly-dancing.
I can’t help downloading their songs. Wise men say only fools rush in, but that’s not so much a concern on dialup.
You feel badass belting out your misogynistic rap lyrics while coasting down Main Street ? Try pulling up to a little old lady in her Caddie whilst singing sweetly to “Christfuck.”
