Too bad that never lasts past the first sentence or two. But I thank you for staying with me anyway.
I think it's sweet how optimistic you are, actually.
It's also Family Picnic day at One Hit Wonders Inc! We play such wonderful party games as Find the Intern

And Pin the Tail on the Doctor

The interns really enjoy these outings. And I enjoy them too.
One day, maybe I will give them more then 30 minutes before getting back to work.
But only if they're really nice to me.
Anyway, it's time for this week's edition of the one-hit wonders of the 2000s! We're getting through 2007 at a lovely pace. And, so far, no Rap! Well, no real Rap anyway.
Though I did accidentally rap my knuckles with this ruler on the desk.
Too many Catholic school flashbacks, I think.
But wait! What's this?

I see Rappy seas ahead! Batten down the hatches! And put out that cigarette. Those things are bad for ya.
As usual, you can find the list I'm taking these from here. Don't jump ahead of me, though.
Or this might jump out at you.

Sorry. That's me dressed up to go to the Symphony (yes, I go in drag...what of it?)
I meant this.

Here we go!
1) Rich Boy - Featuring Polow da Don: "Throw Some D's" (#6) (March 31, 2007)

Thar she blows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Storm didn't take long to get here, did it?
(Thanks to 44mlb Art Gallery)
We'll just have to ride it out.
Now, where did I put that rum bottle?
2) Robin Thicke: "Lost Without U" (#14) (March 31, 2007)
Oh my God! He definitely looks like his dad! And the video's straight out of a steamy soap opera, so his mom should feel right at home too.
Considering how she's all over him in the video, I don't think he's very lost. Do you?
Am I the only one who would find it deliciously ironic if, when he opened the door that last time and got that weird look on his face, it's because he was being served with divorce papers after all that hot sex he was getting?
Or maybe Stefano would be there and lay a beating on him for sleeping with his daughter?

That would be cool.
Mom might have to intervene.
3) Baby Boy da Prince: "The Way I Live" (#21) (April 7, 2007)
Oh no! They're back! That one snuck up on us. Cut the sail! Hard starboard!
And just ignore me, as I'll be over here in the corner.
(Thanks to Fork Party)
4)Red Jumpsuit Apparatus: "Face Down" (#25) (April 7, 2007)
Wow, thanks Mr. Apparatus (can I call you Red Jumpsuit?). Making a song about domestic abuse. I'll bet you did that just so I couldn't make fun of you.
You knew that, four years after your song, I'd be doing a post like this, aching to make fun of your long hair (I assume you play your instruments by touch?) and other shortcomings. But by making a song about a sensitive topic, you've inoculated yourself!
I can't even make fun of the video!
Well-played, sir. Well-played.
But you will get yours soon, my friend. Yes, you will. When you least expect it.
Your next hit, I'll be there waiting.
Wait! There isn't one! That's why you're here! HA!
That's one for me.
Ok, one comment. It seems from the video that her trouble isn't with an abusive husband/boyfriend, but with a bad poltergeist.
They've got people to deal with these things, lady!
(Thanks to MovieWeb)
5) Crime Mob: "Rock Yo Hips" (#30) (May 12, 2007)

And now they're back! Geez, will this storm never end! Ahoy, mateys!!!! We're going down if we don't do something quick! The masts are down, the sails torn to shreds!
We'll have to find another ship to take.
Oh wait. There's one!
Prepare for boarding!
6)The White Stripes: "Icky Thump" (#26) (May 19, 2007)
Big on the alternative music scene, this is the only "mainstream" White Stripes hit, which is why the duo shows up here. This husband and wife team has an interesting sound, don't they?
I have no idea what this song, or this video means. And I don't care. The wife likes White Stripes, so I wouldn't insult them even if I wanted to (and I don't, as they are actually very intriguing).
It must be nice working and touring with your spouse. No worries about groupies. No worries about one being away from the other for weeks on end.
Songwriting sessions might be interesting, though.
(Thanks to Oil Wrestling)
And that's when they agree!
So there you have it. Part two of 2007. We're half-way there, and we seem to have weathered the storm okay.
Pity about those other people, of course. But needs must, as they say.
For some small group of people that comprise "they," anyway.
Anyway, I did leave them with options.
And now it's off to get ready to go clubbing!
It's no wonder the ladies are all over me.
