  1. Wow, one of my songs finally made it! And after being away for over a year!
  2. 1 Lonely - Janet Jackson (1989) 2 You Still Believe in Me - The Beach Boys (1966) 3 Criminal - Fiona Apple (1997) 4 It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference - Todd Rundgren (1997) 5 Urgent - Foreigner (1981) 6 Sure Shot - Beastie Boys (1994) 7 Man of the World - Fleetwood Mac (1969) 8 White Winter Hymnal - Fleet Foxes (2008) 9 Closing Time - Tom Waits (1973) 10 Lowdown - Boz Scaggs (1976)
  3. That Richard Marx song has already made the top 10 before, hasn't it?
  4. The Beach Boys - You Still Believe in Me (1966) Janet Jackson - Lonely (1989)
  5. Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child (Slight Return) Metallica - The Call of Ktulu
  6. Queen In "Fat Bottomed Girls" Freddie sings "get on your bikes and ride" and in "Bicycle Race" they sing "fat bottomed girls, they'll be riding today". Michael Jackson and The Jacksons. This one hasn't been recognised anywhere but if you listen to the songs back-to-back you can pick up that MJ is singing about the same girl in each one. "She's Out Of My Life" from Off The Wall and then "Time Waits For No One" from The Jacksons album Triumph. If it were a story the first song would be when the break-up has happened, and the second song would be maybe a month later with Michael still lamenting over it. Also from MJ, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" contains the lyrics "Billie Jean is always talkin', when nobody else is talkin'", linking it to the classic that appears later on Thriller.
  7. Don't forget that classic line from the Jay Sean "Baby Are You Down, Down, Down, Down Down" song: I'll take you away, hey Turn this place into our private getaway
  8. Wow, not a single vote save for mine for one of the greatest songs of the '90s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unfinished_sympathy
  9. 1 Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack (1991) 2 Maggot Brain - Funkadelic (1971) 3 Jungle Boogie - Kool Gang (1974) 4 Pusherman - Curtis Mayfield (1972) 5 Three Times A Lady - The Commodores (1978) 6 Ordinary People - John Legend (2004) 7 Wonderful World - Sam Cooke (1960) 8 Don't Look Back - Cassandra Wilson (1991) 9 Work It Out - Beyonce (2002) 10 Princes of the Universe - Queen (1986)
  10. John Legend - Ordinary People This link is actually a better one as it's straight from the album and doesn't have the people arguing from in the video.
  11. John Legend - Ordinary People (2004) Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy (1991)
  12. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean Radiohead - Pyramid Song Eric B. & Rakim - Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em Janet Jackson - Love Will Never Do (Without You) Why won't it let me type Janet Jackson???
  13. Eric Clapton - Old Love (1992) James Reyne - Motor's Too Fast (1988)
  14. It's a great song! I first heard it in an episode of the classic late '80s TV series Crime Story and have loved it ever since.
  15. Blue In Green - Miles Davis (1959) Summer Madness - Kool & The Gang (1974)
  16. Well, you know at least ONE of the songs I'll be nominating!
  17. Wow, I just noticed that there's not a single song by Kool & The Gang that has made the top ten.
  18. Can We Still Be Friends - Todd Rundgren (1978) Pyramid Song - Radiohead (2001)
  19. Because I want to see people and I want to see life...
  20. From that stupid "baby are you down down down down down" song: I'll take you away, hey, turn this place into our private getaway
  21. My personal opinion of that Cee-Lo song is that it's like putting on an armani suit and then smearing $hit all over it. The music is fantastic but the gutter language just ruins it. I'm not a prude or anything. There are some songs where the emotion involved makes swearing in the lyrics justifiable, but this ain't one of them. It would be perfectly fine if the lyrics were actually supposed to be forget you. Swearing for the sake of swearing is something that school kids do to try and look cool in front of each other.
  22. It's sad that hip hop is now more popular than it was back in the mid to late '80s when it was truly an innovative art form. All the crappy artists of today are making more money than the true legends of the genre ever did.
  23. Janet Jackson "Let's Wait A While" from Control "Someday Is Tonight" from Rhythm Nation
  24. Lonely - Janet Jackson (1989) Don't Sweat The Technique - Eric B. & Rakim (1992)
