One Hit Wonders of the 2000s (Part 10)

Hey look! The rain has stopped!

Wait. That's just the picture I put up in the window to make me feel better. Never mind.

Sexy guy, though.

Will the flowers come out soon? Will it turn from grey to green?

As I look out my window, I see that we don't grow flowers in Vancouver.

We grow buildings.

(Not Vancouver, but a reasonable facsimile)

Big, strong, narrow buildings that reach to the sky and...well, never mind.

Anyway, you know what time it is? No, not the time to fling the cat over the balcony.

Though she does deserve it.

No, it's time for this week's one-hit wonder extravaganza!!!! We're finishing up 2002. Yes, you heard that right. Finishing up the year when we just started it last week.

What a lame year!

As usual, you can see the list I'm taking these from here. But don't go looking to get ahead of me!

I've coated the next few years with a fast-acting poison that will cause you to turn into this.

Whoops! That's from my ad. I meant this.

Here we go!

1) Default: Wasting My Time (#13) (June 8, 2002)

(Yay, Vevo!)

Hey! They're in the watch! That is so cool. What a cool use of the time motif! Actually, no it's not, but it's a nice try, though.

If she's waiting for you, though, you may want to get out of her watch and actually, you know, talk to her. Unless you're scared or something.

"Honey, I was going to meet you. I swear!!!! But then I had to break up a fight in Central Park, and it just got ugly."

"Well, maybe not *that* ugly"

Awwww...we have a happy ending.

This is actually a pretty good song, but a rather lame video.

2) Jimmy Eat World: "The Middle" (#5) (June 22, 2002)

(Yay, Vevo!)

My Guitar Hero song! Or was it Rock Band? Evette can probably tell me. I had no idea the video was so risque, though!

"Hey, nobody told me it was a costume, I'm lame"

"Nothing says privacy like an empty refrigerator!!! The cold has other good effects too..."

Yet another pretty cool rock song from the early 2000s. Nice guitar work, nice panties...I mean, percussion...and great bras...I mean bravery for all of those dancing around in their underwear!

All around win-win for Jimmy. Though really, eating the world? Diet much, Jimmy?

3) Dirty Vegas: "Days Go By" (#14) (June 29, 2002)

Wow, that's an empty street...why can't Vancouver be like that when I'm trying to get around?

Ok, it's official. The Rat Race has officially driven us all crazy.

They should have gotten Christopher Walken for this video...

Let me get this straight. He was dating this girl, but he just couldn't stop dancing, so she finally left him? Is that the serious story in this video? I'm not the most intelligent guy out there (actually, I'm being modest...I'm SuperBrain), but...


The song's got a nice beat, but I am completely boggled about the video.

Nice dancing, though.

I guess. If you're into that sort of thing.

4) Big Tymers: "Still Fly" (#11) (July 20, 2002)

(Yay, Vevo!)

Oooooooo rap!!!!!

And bad rap, too....

Turn it off! Before I lose it!!!

Wow. That was therapeutic...

5) Irv Gotti presents The Inc: "Down 4 U" (#6) (August 3, 2002)

Skipped because I can't find a video I know is the right one.

Besides, it looks like it's a rap song.


6) DJ Sammy and Yanou featuring Do: "Heaven" (#5) (August 10, 2002)

Oh! A remix of *this* song!!!

She's no Bryan Adams, but I'll take her. Not so sure about this revamp of the song, though. Does it really need a dance remix? I guess if I was out at a club it might be cool. Of course, it's probably not even played there anymore, so never mind.

Damn! It's too bad I just realized that. I was all set to go.

Ladies, you missed out. Sorry.

7) Tracy Byrd: "Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo" (#26) (September 21, 2002)

It wouldn't be the early 2000s without a Country song! But at least there's a video...

So let me get this straight. We have beer goggles regarding women at bars, and we have Jose Cuervo Hearing Aids for bad music turning good? Got it.

This video looks like it cost $30 to make.

Where have all the odes to alcohol gone? This is another classic one in that vein, though after 10 rounds, I think he'd be doing much more than looking wasted.

I think this is more likely to be him.

Then again, when a hot girl beckons, you force yourself to get up off the floor! And...well, have your buddies drag you along with her.

8) Nappy Roots: "Po' Folks" (#21) (November 9, 2002)

Nappy Roots - Po' Folks
Uploaded by AtlanticRecords. - See the latest featured music videos.

(Embedding Disable on Youtube? BS!!!)

No rap for weeks, and then three in one episode? What is this?

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue...

But I got better.

And there you have it! 2002 goes out the biggest whimper since the one emitted by me when I accidentally got one of Brett Favre's texts.

This was a pathetic year for one-hit wonders, and one can only hope that somebody came around and whipped them into shape.

Well, not *quite* like that, as I don't think it would have the right effect. But you get the picture.

So be with us next week when we'll usher in 2003 with a bit more aplomb than we left this year with.

And there might be cake as well.

But don't count on it.

It's time to start my day.

Stupid pigs. LET THEM STARVE!!!!

  1. Well I was hoping this weeks songs would take my mind off my lousy day but no such luck. Number 6 was the only half way good song. 3,5, & 8 we couldn't even get. Said we couldn't get it in our country. That didn't leave many. Hopefully next year will be better.
