Listen to "I'm Too Sexy"

# 20 I'm Too Sexy

Artist: Right Said Fred


Released in 1991


"I'm Too Sexy" is a song about being overly-confident about one's appearance. In fact, i'm too sexy to even be writing about this song.

Listen to "Summer Girls"

# 19 Summer Girls

Artist: LFO


Released in 1999


"Summer Girls" peaked at number three in August 1999. The song was made as mostly an inside joke but somehow became popular. Hey, I like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese too.

Listen to "Achy Breaky Heart"

# 18 Achy Breaky Heart

Artist: Billy Ray Cyrus


Released in 1992


"Achy Breaky Heart" was Billy Ray Cyrus' most successful song to date and made him famous. This song helped bring back line dancing, something that had been dearly missed in bars all over the world.

Listen to "Heartbeat"

# 17 Heartbeat

Artist: Don Johnson


Released in 1986


"Heartbeat" peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became an international hit.

Listen to "MMM Bop"

# 16 MMM Bop

Artist: Hanson


Released in 1997


"MMM Bop" was hugely successful in over 25 countries around the world, reaching number one in all of them, including the USA. It was Hanson's debut single. Hanson's hair was always so pretty.

Listen to "I'll Be There For You"

# 15 I'll Be There For You (Friends theme)

Artist: The Rembrandts


Released in 1994


This hugely popular theme song for the sitcom "Friends" was originally under a minute long but then was made into a three minute long pop song. I think I liked it more when it was shorter.

Listen to Ice Ice Baby

# 14 Ice Ice Baby

Artist: Vanilla Ice


Released in 1990


"Ice Ice Baby" was the first hip hop single to top the Billboard charts. Also, it helped bring hip hop into the mainstream. Yes, I could use some ice in my drink, thank you very much.

Listen to "Physical"

# 13 Physical

Artist: Olivia Newton-John


Released in 1981


The song "Physical" was instantly a pop hit and sold over 2 million records and spent more than 10 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. I knew there was a reason I never liked exercising.

Listen to "Barbie Girl"

# 12 Barbie Girl

Artist: Aqua


Released in 1997


This was Aqua's biggest hit to date. It peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached even higher on the charts in the U.K.

Listen to "Friday"

# 11 Friday

Artist: Rebecca Black


Released in 2011


"Friday" became popular on You Tube mostly for negative reasons. It was Rebecca Black's debut single. Boy, Friday never sounded so bad. I'll take a Monday anyday.

Listen to "Supermodel"

# 10 Supermodel (You Better Work)

Artist: Ru Paul


Released in 1992


"Supermodel" became an instant club anthem surprisingly. The song peaked at 45 on the Billboard Hot 100. Ru Paul offered great advice to supermodels every where, turn to the left, now turn to the right, sashay.

Listen to "Walk the Dinosaur"

# 9 Walk the Dinosaur

Artist: Was (Not Was)


Released in 1987


Amazingly this song reached number 7 on the US charts and reached number 10 on the U.K. charts. I knew I never liked history that much.

Listen to "Blue"

# 8 Blue (Da Ba Dee)

Artist: Eiffel 65


Released in 1998


"Blue" reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Blue seems to be talking about someone who is severely blue and down in the dumps. However, the positive beat seems to differ.

Listen to "Macarena"

# 7 Macarena

Artist: Los Del Rio


Released in 1995


The "Macarena" started a dance craze that can still be found at wedding receptions around the world.

Listen to "Rico Suave"

# 6 Rico Suave

Artist: Rico Suave


Released in 1991


"Rico Suave" appeared at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. I really don't have much more to say about this song. I am still in shock that it even made it on the charts in the first place.

Listen to "The Hamster Dance"

# 5 The Hamster Dance Song

Artist: Hampton the Hamster


Released in 2000


"The Hamster Dance Song" reached number 70 on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, and well.... it is what it is.

Listen to "Mambo No. 5"

# 4 Mambo No. 5

Artist: Lou Bega


Released in 1999


"Mambo No. 5" was Australia's best selling single of 1999. It stayed at number 1 in France for 20 weeks and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the states. This song is a lovely salute to womanizing.

Listen to "How Bizarre"

# 3 How Bizarre

Artist: OMC


Released in 1995


This song was only released on the US radio so it wasn't allowed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.... How Bizarre.

Listen to Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm

# 2 Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm

Artist: Crash Test Dummies


Released in 1993


This song became a top five hit in both the U.K. and in the USA. I have never thought of birthmarks and white hair the same. The HORROR!

Listen to "Who Let the Dogs Out"

# 1 Who Let the Dogs Out?

Artist: Baha Men


Released in 2000


"Who Let The Dogs Out?" was features in the movie "Rugrats" and became the 4th best selling single in the U.K. in 2000. Unfortunately, enough people listened to this song in the states to allow this song to peak at number 40. I have a better question than who let the dogs out, who ate the cookie in the cookie jar?

      Ha-ha! I'm just commenting here so I remember to come back and listen to some of these "classics." LMAO!

      Side Note: #6 (Rico Suave) is still considered a song, even by today's lame musical standards? Yikes!

      Hahah Good choice although I don't entirely agree with the list - each to their own I reckon..but yes 'Friday' was one laughing fit for sure...and Don johnson's Heartbeat was certainly 80's worst song IMO

      I know most of these songs and I have to agree. I do think Friday is hilarious though. I sometimes watch the video because it's so funny.
