One Hit Wonders of the 2000s (Part 12)

What's this stuff I see outside my window this morning as I wake up?

Is that God's dandruff? (Sorry, couldn't resist).

Yes, it's snow! In late February! In Vancouver! With exclamation marks!! I can't stop!!!

Somebody please stop me!!!!!

Whew! Thank you. Just like a broken record.

No, I don't mean annoying as hell. I mean stuck on one thing.

Really, you wound me when you say things like that. I get enough abuse from my interns.

And it's even worse on my birthday!

Since you're being so mean to me, I guess I'll just start with today's episode. Yes, that's right, it's time for this week's edition of the one-hit wonders of the 2000s! Hopefully with less rap, but I'm beginning to lose hope.

As usual, you can find the list I'm taking these from here.

Will it help if I ask you nicely not to look at the list before I'm done?

Here we go!

1) Panjabi MC: "Beware of the Boys (Mundian to Bach Ke)" (#33) (May 17, 2003)

Panjabi Mc - Mundian To Bach Ke
Uploaded by homhom. - Explore more music videos.

Does the music in this song sound kind of familiar? If you listen really closely, you'll hear the Knight Rider theme in there.

For those of you too young to know, that was a TV show from the 80s with a talking car.

For those of you from the future, TV is a device that broadcast video programming to the masses. It even survived this.

But may not survive this.

We shall mourn. And try to find something else to do with our time.

Like writing bad blogs!

Oh, the song? It's kind of exotic and fun, but not something I'd listen to every day.

2) Wayne Wonder: "No Letting Go" (#11) (May 31, 2003)

Well, at least it looks like he's not going to get laid in this video...

whoops...should have watched longer.

Good lord, though. She could look like she's a little more into it. What, did she learn from Chris Isaak's girl?

Put some emotion into it!

Seriously, they all look like they'd rather be someplace else.

C'mon, Wayne! I don't need these high school flashbacks here.

3) Floetry: "Say Yes" (#24) (June 14, 2003)

(Yay, Vevo!!!)

"You make me" WHAT???? WHAT DOES HE MAKE YOU FEEL?????

I don't know why they wouldn't finish. It's not like the kids out there would understand what the ladies mean.

If I'm reading that right, of course...

Which I think I am. Because I've got that kind of radar.
(Thanks to Teebean)

It can scope out innuendo at 500 yards.

It also attracts the chicks, but that's just a side benefit.

4) Bone Crusher: "Never Scared" (#26) (June 21, 2003)

(language warning)

I think my head's going to explode like the one that Crusher's talking about in the song.

"Thank you for lining up today. Will anybody who doesn't suck please step forward? Not so fast, Crusher."

5) Korn: "Did My Time" (#38) (August 9, 2003)

(Yay, Vevo!!!)

The saving grace of this video?

Angelina Jolie (the song's from the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life and she's in the video too).

The saving grace of this song? Let me think... ends? Eventually?

6) Lumidee: "Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)" (#3) (August 16, 2003)

I have no idea which version of this song went to #3.

It's got a pretty good beat. It's almost bouncing me off my chair.

However, everything else?

But you know what your mom always said about not having anything nice to say.

Stupid interns!! It was only supposed to cover my mouth!

7) Thalia: "I Want You" (#22) (August 23, 2003)

Thalia & Joe - I Want You
Uploaded by lachula. - Music videos, artist interviews, concerts and more.

Gotta love a girl who knows what she wants and tells you!

She's smoking-hot, but the voice? Let's just say "Thank God for audio processing" (Yeah, like I should talk).

Then again, if she's singing to some guy, I can't imagine him actually listening to her voice, anyway, so maybe it's a win-win.

And Fat Joe? Well, you're making Thalia sound good, so I'm sure she thanks you for that.

And there you have it! We're half-way through 2003, and I'm getting depressed. Who knew there'd be a new resurgence of Rap?

Oh, Britney Spears, where are you when I need you?

Ok, actually, I never need you. But thank you for coming anyway. I seem to be having trouble hunting down good music.

But I shall persevere!

Until next time, when we wrap up 2003, I shall bid you adieu. Time for me to start my Sunday.

I hate those damned seagulls. They're evil.

  1. You could have just skipped this week. They were all bad. My comments as I listened were #2 was the only one any good at all, & that was a stretch. If some of these artists ever listened to their song I can't understand how they could begin to think they were good. Can sure understand why they are one hit wonders,but I wouldn't even call them that. Better luck next week.

  2. Why do you think I was more jokes and less commenting on the songs this week? :)

    Hopefully you enjoyed that part at least...

  3. I always enjoy your comments & jokes.

  4. Wait... what? How is Korn a one hit wonder? If anything, they've had a long and succesful careers in music.

  5. The definition of a "one-hit wonder" is that they only have one Top 40 hit on the Billboard Top 40 charts.

    They can have 85 hits on the Country charts, Modern Rock Charts, whatever. But if they cross over to the basic Billboard chart only once, they fall into this category.

    So yeah, there are a lot of successful artists on this list.

    Thanks for stopping by!
