Nice one mate :)

keshi: That music video is absolutely hilarious (unintentionally so, I believe). I swear there's a family of squirrels living in lead vocalist, Bill Champlin's mullet in that video.

If you want some more laughs from a Chicago music video, check out their video for Stay the Night which is one of THE funniest (and incidentally best, imho) music videos ever!

The one that really surprised me was the nikki french. lol

That being said, I'm charging up the old iPod right now to see what kind of embarrassment it's goign to cause me.

St. Dickeybird said...

I'll run this one from home. My iPod hasn't a very exciting mix as it's for work use. Home is where the embarassment lies.

I'm predicting Roxette, William Shatner, and Ozzy Osbourne covering the BeeGees will each make an appearance...

Perplexio said...

dantallion: I agree my list wasn't surprising because of what was on it so much as for the musicians/artists that remained conspicuously absent from the list... especially given the sheer volume of mp3s by those musicians/singers on my HD (I'm not using an Ipod, I'm using about 70GBs worth of an external 120GB HD hooked up to my work laptop I just carry the HD back and forth to and from work so I always have my WHOLE collection with me).

Dickeybird: But is it as bad as hearing Leonard Nimoy singing Mr. Tambourine Man? Do you have any Hasslehoff in your collection or is he just BEYOND embarrassing?

BarBarA said...

Will do right now. How many songs do you have on your MP3? I've got almost 2,000.

Out the 20 you listed, I have 8 of those.

Jeff said...

I just posted my list over on my blog.

Perplexio said...

Barbara: I currently have 12,065 mp3s on my external HD. Although I believe I have some duplicates, I need to go in and clean it up sometime.

jeff: I checked it out, there's some good stuff there. :-)
