Screw it, this is my favorite song of all time.

Jumping into the presidential race now is a pretty Late Registration

I'm looking forward to the Rick Astley one, the ultimate meme song.

July 1, 2020 on The Number Ones: Toto’s “Africa”
People better put their money together to see why Biz Markie’s highest-charting song 1989’s “Just A Friend,” which peaked at #9, is a 10.

June 29, 2020 on The Number Ones: Men At Work’s “Down Under”
That's the one that deserved 94 upvotes.

My favorite 80's hit of paranoia is "Somebody's Watching Me." If that doesn't get a mention in the Number 2's, that is a terrible mistake.

June 17, 2020 on The Number Ones: Men At Work’s “Who Can It Be Now?”
I love any song that builds the universe of the lyrics with the music itself, so the part where he says "Who that knocking at my door?" and then the beat sounds like someone knocking rules so much. See also: any song that stops when the singer says "stop."

Change it to Alex Gantebellum

The way this is written implies "I Feel Love" is a real clunker. That can't be right.

June 12, 2020 on The Number Ones: Chicago’s “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”
Amarillo By Morning is so perfect it has made me cry in a Taco Bell on multiple occasions.

June 8, 2020 on The Number Ones: Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger”
The Bonus Beats avoided the 2020 trap of posting the completely superfluous scene from the Netflix phenomenon Tiger King https://youtu.be/hqf3u18kQaA

Yeah, I'm a millennial too. The closest thing I have to growing up with this song was a Chips Ahoy! commercial. https://youtu.be/BYjR6yuAMLc

June 5, 2020 on The Number Ones: The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”
I love ending the week on a 10, and few songs deserve it as much as this one.

Joan Jett: I love rock and roll Sisyphus: I do not

May 29, 2020 on The Number Ones: Joan Jett And The Blackhearts’ “I Love Rock ‘N Roll”
I guess the "Pants on the Ground" guy was too big to get invited.

If anybody was could foresee the future, it sure seems like it would have been him.

May 12, 2020 on Future Wisely Retitles New Album Out Friday
Crazy that Venus has hit #1 as the original song, a sample, and eventually a cover. That's quite the run.

May 8, 2020 on The Number Ones: Stars On 45’s “Stars On 45″
Joe Meek produced the #1 song Telstar. Jim Gordon was on many hits as a session drummer in the 60's. Suge Knight produced the Chronic. Those were before they murdered people though.

April 27, 2020 on The Number Ones: REO Speedwagon’s “Keep On Loving You”
The British Invasion peaked with Telstar.

April 24, 2020 on Beatles Or Stones?
In "Driving My Life Away", Rabbit says the rain blinds him while he drives. I just want some consistence on Rabbit's stance on rainy nights.

April 24, 2020 on The Number Ones: Eddie Rabbitt’s “I Love A Rainy Night”
Guy Mitchell's "Heartaches by the Number" beats this one by quite a few years.

April 17, 2020 on The Number Ones: Blondie’s “The Tide Is High”
If it is Snow's Informer, that's brutal. If that wasn't bad enough, it is also the song that blocked Nuthin But A G'Thang from hitting #1.
+10 |
April 17, 2020 on The Number Ones: Blondie’s “The Tide Is High”
Their biggest hit is Rikki Don't Lose that Number at #4. They only had two other top 10 hits Hey Nineteen and Do It Again.

April 17, 2020 on The Number Ones: Blondie’s “The Tide Is High”
This kind of reminds me of Asher Roth's "I Love College," which is never a good sign.

RIP to yet another legend. John Prine's music will always be a part of my life. It is a shame that he no longer will. I'm aware that's the way that the world goes 'round, but I am still an unhappy enchilada.

This is a rather unlovely day.

I knew it would come down to this, but Everything is Beautiful is still the worst Number One of the 70's.
