… and “Too Many Walls” is a hard 9.
I just took a look at the year ahead, and there are several deserving candidates for your wrath.
“It’s Raining Men” was also Homer Simpson’s favorite song on Moe’s jukebox.
Thank you for the awesome write up on Martha Wash. The 1990s will see a lot of Mariah and Celine, but I would take Martha all day, every day over the other divas of the decade.
I never took the "poor is the man..." line as being about consent from the person or people you were in bed with, but rather the permission of all the people who weren't in that bed. Or as better put in the movie "Too Wong Foo ..." approval neither desired nor required. The early 1990s were not exactly a celebration of inclusion. I give it a 10, one point for each dollar I spent on the video ... Madonna, you do your thing.
If "Ice Ice Baby" is a 6, there is no way that Tone Loc's "Wild Thing" is only an 8. One of these songs is complete garbage and the other is "Wild Thing."
I now know what Granny’s getting for Christmas.
Red Hot + Blue is a terrific album. It is probably my favorite tribute album of all time. David Byrne’s “Don’t Fence Me In” is a 10 all day, every day!
Thank you for Deee-Lite this morning! Definitely a 10. This song and SoHo’s “Hippychick” are forever linked in my mind. Playing them back to back at house parties in college got the dance floor packed!
I liked this song when it came out. I worked at a radio station, and I enjoyed playing this song. But I just can't take Mariah anymore. It really started with that terrible dance in the "Someday" video. Then there was the 49 cent cassette singles that boosted her sales when a lot of great music wasn't being commercially released. Then the VH1 Divas show where she just looked desperate to upstage Aretha Franklin. To me, she seems like the person who is making her personal assistant sew a "Size Two" label in all her clothes while demanding that no one make eye contact. An 8 sound right, but I dread the rest of the 90s.
Mrs. SumDude would rather I stay away from lists like this because the ranting starts almost immediately. Naturally I read the list, it is a dumpster fire, ranting ensued.
If "Vogue" is a nine, then you are using a 1-5 scale, 5 being a masterpiece, and this song just breaks the scale. Maybe my Gen X rating of the song is clouded by the memory of MTV hoopla that came with the video's release. It was inescapable. Understanding Madonna can be her own worst enemy, she is kind of under-appreciated for all the groundbreaking she really did do.
I remember watching the SNL performance thinking, as she ripped up the picture of the pope, "well, she's not entirely wrong." The backlash was ridiculous. But welcome to America ... we love Jesus and guns.
“Step On” twists my melons, man. It’s such a ten.
Melissa Ethridge's "Im the Only One" is at least an 8. And there is no way that it should ever score lower than Phil Collins' "Another Day in Paradise." I mean ... how do you even sleep at night?
“Lovesong” is a 10, and Disintegration is the best album ever!
As God is my witness, the Cranberries’ “Linger” is a ten.
“The Promise” is a ten.
“Supersonic” is a ten, and you know that we are freaks.
I kinda like Iron and Wine’s cover of “Such Great Heights.” But more to the point, leave Terry Gross alone.
