One Hit Wonders of the 2000s (Part 27)

It's hard to believe, but we're starting to wind down the decade here at One Hit Wonder Inc. There are only six more episodes left before we get to the end of the decade!

I've started thinking about what's coming next.

(Thanks to the Daily Mail)

No, no kiddie music!

(Thanks to Coopernundrums)

Too bad, kid.

Anyway, while I'm thinking, I'm going to throw it out to you, dear reader (and not so dear readers, but not to those of you who hate me because I'm beautiful).

What would you like to see in a weekly music show? Nothing before the 80s, as there have to be videos or something I can post on here. There also has to be a site or list somewhere that I can take them from. In other words, I can't do the Top 10 hits of Joe Pesci or anything like that.

(Warning: Language)

So get your thinking caps on! We've got 6 weeks (maybe 7, as I may take a one-week break) before I need to do something!

Or I can just let the whole thing go.

Ok, ok!!! I will come up with something.

I don't want the world to fall into chaos.

Anyway, on to this week's episode! We're entering 2008, and frankly, I'm scared. I'm scared that we're going to be overcome by crap rap. But I shall move forward courageously!!!

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

What? Oh, thanks, HAL.

Let me just check my phone.

Hey, what's this picture? I can't quite tell....ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!! How did I get on a New York Congressman's texting list?

Must be my flowing blonde hair.

Here we go!

1) Yael Naim: "New Soul" (#7) (February 23, 2008)

Wow, that's one cheaply built apartment. Did you see how easily she pushed that wall down?

I think somebody should sue those contractors. What have our building standards come down to?

Of course, I probably should have thought of that before hiring them to do my vacation home down in Arizona.

We're only there once a year, so it's probably ok.

2) Buckcherry: "Sorry" (#9) (March 1, 2008)

(Wow, sorry for the crappy quality, but it's the only one I could find)

I'm sitting here, and I honestly don't know what to make of this song.

Yeah, it is kind of an uplifting song, in an "I screwed up" kind of way.

Other things they're sorry for:

1) Convincing Simon Cowell to leave American Idol

2) Leaving the toilet seat up

3) Hacking a Congressman's Twitter account

4) All the rain in Tennessee

However, they refuse to take credit for Justin Bieber's popularity.


3) Shawty Lo: "Dey Know" (#31) (March 22, 2008)

Shawty Lo - Dey Know by TBOVIDEOS

Oh, my. Here we go! I guess we should have known this was coming. More Rap!!!

We have to fight this, I say! Let me get out my fighting garb.

(Thanks to Joke 7x24)

Of course, I man the hatches by actually filling the hatches.

Shawty recently had some surgery which meant he couldn't sing for a bit. This was the crowd's response.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

(Disclaimer for those who might be confused: No, he didn't just have surgery)

4) 2 Pistols- featuring Tay Dizm: "She Got It" (#24) (April 19, 2008)

Hey, I have a great idea! Let's combine the two worst ideas in the world!

No, not Cop Rock

Rap and Autotune!!!

Yes, like adding jalapeno peppers to your liver and onions, this one just leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

5) James Otto: "Just Got Started Loving You" (#27) (May 17, 2008)

Woo! Another Country artist crossing over briefly before he decides that he doesn't like the food they serve over here.

I can't say I blame him too much, though. They get awesome burgers and fries, chocolate cake, onion rings, deviled eggs, and all that good stuff.

This is what we get on this side of the aisle.

(Thanks to Express Night Out)

Who wouldn't go Country?

6) Duffy: "Mercy" (#27) (May 31, 2008)

(Yes, it does abruptly cut off at the end)

I *love* this song. I first saw Duffy in a concert broadcast on HDNet, and thought she was really good. But this song is the one that really grabbed me. I only learned later (like, today), that this was her only hit over in the US. It certainly doesn't surprise me that the song was popular.

On the other hand, the song title does lend itself to a couple of jokes. I'm really begging for mercy from those guys who are trying to dance in the video. I'm looking really closely, but I can't see the strings. But somebody has to be controlling them from above.

And they're begging Duffy for mercy from the punishment for bad dancing! I know I'm a hard boss on my interns, but setting them on fire? The worst I do is lock them in a room with Gilbert Godfried.

Ok, that might be against the Geneva Convention, much less OSHA laws.

And there you have it! We're through the first part of 2008, and it hasn't been *too* bad.

Ok, well, it was kind of bad. Yes. I was just trying to put a positive spin on the whole thing, HAL.

Sheesh, you're such a downer!

I will keep hunting for some better stuff, though. This hunting is hard work.

(Thanks to Just Say Pictures)

But carry on, we shall! Because if I don't...well, let's be serious. Nobody else would be stupid enough to.

It's time to start my Sunday, though.

Damn Xerox. They just don't make them like they used to.
