76) You're givin me the chills baby please baby don't
77) I, I was standing, you were there
78) This is the world we live in, and these are the hands were given
79) And you may say to yourself, My god, what have I done?
80) Sailed away to China, in a little row boat to find ya, you said you had to get your laundry done
81) Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
82) I'm lying in the rain, but I never wave bye bye, but I try
83) Have a banana, have a whole bunch, It doesn't matter what you had for lunch
84) All the cops in the donut shop say way-o way-o
85) An invisible man sleepin' in your bed...
86) Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you.
87) By order of the prophet, we ban that boogie sound.
88) The history book on the shelf, is always repeating itself
89) This kettle is boiling over, I think I'm a banana tree
90) Will Smith don't gotta cuss in his raps to sell his records; Well I do, so fuck him and fuck you too!
91) Everyone’s a silver hero, everyone's a Captain Kirk, with orders to identify, to clarify and classify
92) I'm having trouble saying what I mean, with dead poets and drum machines
93) I’m a model you know what I mean, and I do my little turn on the catwalk
94) Sail away, Sail away, Sail away
95) Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya here (here) Mocha Chocalata ya ya (oh yea)
96) Sorry girl, but you missed out, Well tough luck that boy's mine now,
We are more than just good friends, This is how the story ends
97) The good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
98) Oooh baby do you know what that's worth?
99) Pictures came and broke your heart
100) I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart, But you've got bein' right down to an art

music

Thanks... At last. Songs that are old enough for me to remember them...

76) Toni Basil, "Hey Mickey".
77) INXS, "Never Tear Us Apart".
79) Talking Heads, "Once In A Lifetime".
80) Rockwell, "Break My Stride".
81) Katrina and the Waves, "Walking in Sunshine".
82) David Bowie, "Modern Love".
83) Weird Al Yankovic, "Fat".
84) Bangles, "Walk Like An Egyptian".
86) Eurythmics, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)".
87) The Clash, "Rock the Casbah".
88) ABBA, "Waterloo". I much prefer the David Kilgour and Robert Scott version, though...
93) Right Said Fred, "I'm Too Sexy".
94) Enya, "Orinoco Flow".
95) Either the song or the band that originally performed it is called "Lady Marmalade". If it's the song I'm thinking of. The only version of the song I actually know is the version by When The Cat's Away with Sharon O'Neill, though.
97) Don McLean, "American Pie".
98) "Heaven Is A Place On Earth". Mind going blank as for singer, though... Belinda Carlisle?
99) Buggles, "Video Killed the Radio Star".

78) Genesis, "Land of Confusion" (have you seen the video with the Spitting Image puppets or was it before your time?)
79) Talking Heads, "Once in a Lifetime"
83) Weird Al Yankowitz, "Eat It" (have you seen his "Amish Paradise"? Totally cracks me up. And "Pretty Fly for a Rabbi"!! Although "Jurassic Park" will probably always be my favourite of his...)
84) The Bangles, "Walk like an Egyptian"
85) Ray Parker Jr, "Ghostbusters" (CW and I went to see Ghostbusters on our second ever date)
86) Eurythmics, "Sweet Dreams are Made of This"
87) The Clash, "Rock the Casbah"
88) Abba, "Waterloo"
89) Queen, "I'm going slightly mad"
91) Nena, "99 Red Balloons" (I'm pretty sure that it really says "Everyone's a superhero")
92) Natasha Bedingfield, "These Words"
93) Right Said Fred, "I'm too sexy"
94) Enya, "Orinoco Flow"
95) "Lady Marmalade". I can't remember who did the original version, and I can only remember Pink from the version from "Moulin Rouge"
96 Avril Lavigne, "Sk8ter Boi"
97) Don MacLean, "American Pie" (the Madonna version is a strong contender for 'worst cover of all time')
98) Belinda Carlisle, "Heaven is a Place on Earth" (on Tyneside we used to sing it as "Hebburn is a place on Earth" because of the Metro station of that name. And we used to burst into "Hebburn, I'm in Hebburn..." whenever the train stopped at that station)
99) Buggles, "Video Killed the Radio Star"
100) Shania Twain, "That Don't Impress Me Much" (possibly the song quoted in my fics more than any other!)

I vaguely remember the Spitting Image video, but certainly haven't seen it in years. *sigh*

Weird Al - Heard of them, not actually heard them alas. But you have to give credit to the guy for going this long. *grin*

There are a lot of Weird Al videos at YouTube - and you can see some on Weird Al's own website.

#86 is Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics.

#90 is definitely Eminem. Possibly The Realm Slim Shady?

#92 is These Words by Natasha Bedingfield.

#93 is I'm Too Sexy (?).

#95 is Lady Marmalade, and I don't know/remember who did the original.

#96 is Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne, or however you (mis)spell that.

#97 is American Pie by Don McLean.

#99 is Video Killed the Radio Star and again, I don't know/remember the band.

#100 is That Don't Impress Me Much by Shania Twain (sp?).

What the Bork? [jennymalfoy]

How is it you get "Sk8er Boi" correct, and not "The Realm Slim Shady"?
