The Devil Wears Prada- “Still Fly”
This song comes from the album “Punk Goes Crunk”, which is an album where various bands (very few of them actually being punk bands) cover rap songs (only one of them is actually a crunk song). This is a cover of a Big Tymers song, who were never a crunk group.
Fun Fact: “Diamond in the back” refers to the rear window of vintage Cadillac cars.
Mark Morrison- “Return of the Mack”
Fun Fact: This song samples “Genius of Love” by Tom Tom Band and “The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground. Blink and you’ll miss the second one though. Yep. Blink your ears.
Cam’Ron- “Killa Cam”
Lemonheads are a delicious hard candy. They’re sweet because it’s candy, but also tart because of the lemon flavoring. Try them out!
Iron Maiden- “Genghis Khan”
You’re looking for 0:57.
AC Slater- “Full Power”
Redman- “Tonight’s da Night”
Samples: “All Night Long” by Mary Jane Girls, “The Payback” by James Brown, “Tonight’s the Night” by Raydio, “A Few More Kisses To Go” by Isaac Hayes.
I’m telling you because those will all be songs of the day in the future.
Genre- Chill trap
If the hook doesn’t sound familiar, you haven’t heard “Welcome to the Terrordome” by Public Enemy. You should fix this immediately.
Fun Fact: This song contains samples from the film “Rosemary’s Baby”.
Elton John- “Pinball Wizard”
Story- The Who released the rock opera Tommy in 1969. Like all great rock operas, it got a film adaptation a few years later. This song was featured in that film.
So, it’s all right if you like this song more than the original. Because it’s better, and it’s officially sanctioned by The Who!
In my experience, songs with the word “baby” in the title are almost always good.
Fun Fact- Ashanti is the first woman to have three top 10 singles on the Billboard 100 in the same week.
Al B. Sure! - “Off on Your Own (Girl)”
Al B. Sure! is cool because he has two forms of punctuation in his name. And yes, you do have to pronounce both the period and exclamation mark.
Fun Fact: Phife Dawg references Al B. Sure! in the song “Oh My God” with the lyric “My man Al B. Sure, he’s in effect mode”. In Effect Mode was the name of Al’s debut album.
D12- “My Salsa”
Genre- Salsa music
This is a fan edit of the ending of the D12 song “My Band”, where D12 becomes a salsa band for some reason.
Fun Fact: Salsa is a musical genre, a dance, and a sauce.
NEUTRINO- “Kill You 2wise Over”
Fun Fact I Made Up: The original title of this song was “Kill You Two Times” as a reference to the Doors song, “Love Me Two Times”.
Brooks and Dunn- “Hillbilly Deluxe”
Like all great albums, “Hillbilly Deluxe” has a deluxe edition with three bonus tracks. You can only get this edition from Best Buy.
Just kidding, that’s not great. Don’t do that.
Extended F@mm- “Celly”
Like all great musical groups, Extended F@mm released one album and called it quits. Physical copies of this album are very rare. How rare? “Pay $200 or more to get it new” rare, that’s how.
Fun Fact: “Can you hear me now?” was a catchphrase used in Verizon Wireless commercials in the early 2000s.
Pink Floyd- “On The Run”
Genre- Experimental rock
When Pink Floyd performed this song live, the set would contain a model aeroplane flying across the stage and exploding.
Surprisingly, no one was ever injured by this stunt.
