- 1Up 20Down 9"You're Beautiful"BUY @ AMAZON
As if coming across as the Verve of the 2000s, Blunt's teary-eyed, super sappy love ballad is considered a classic, and shot the singer to a multitude of critical and commercial promise, scoring a Record of the Year nod for the 2007 Grammy awards. While he is still wishing and hoping and trying to match (or even top) the success in that song, he can take solace in knowing that wrote and recorded a staple for soft rock radio for decades to come.
- 2Up 15Down 5"Stacy's Mom"BUY @ AMAZON
The group has been together since 1996, but it wasn't until seven years later that they scored their first and only major hit. Teenage boys could relate to the theme of the song: having a crush on a girl, but being more in love with her hot mom. And the success of the Grammy-nominated tune was all the group ever needed.
- 3Up 16Down 7"All the Things She Said"BUY @ AMAZON
From the pedophilia porn image to the terrible moniker, to the hammering "Running through my head" chorus, this was calculated hit-making at its most obvious. And what better marketing technique than fake Russian lesbians? After a 2003 MTV Movie Wards performance, the group can probably be found now on the side of a milk carton.
- 4Up 18Down 9"Because I Got High"BUY @ AMAZON
This 'shoulda, coulda, woulda" tune may have seemed comical for many (particularly stoners), but the song also has quite a moral. Afroman explains that weed kept him from going to college and getting laid, in catchy hip-hop sing-along fashion. The rapper resurfaced a couple years later with "Wack rappers", an ill-fated diss record directed towards just about any rapper more successful than him (so pretty much everyone).
- 5Up 8Down 3This classic dance record by a Danish duo (one straight, and one gay) was heard everywher from malls to Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to being background music for practically every show MTV aired in 2003.It's hard to say what has happened to the duo since, but the song itself has held up nicely, as it was featured on the first installment of the Just Dance video game franchise.BUY @ AMAZON
