The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang

The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang

I hate this song. Let me make it a littler more clear: I hate, detest, abhor and despise “The Bad Touch.” Today, I’m breaking my rules. Usually, I only write about one-hit wonders that reached the Billboard Top 40. But today I’m making an exception to comment on “The Bad Touch” by Bloodhound Gang because I hate it so much.

Summer Girls – LFO

Summer Girls – LFO

LFO singer Rich Cronin died today from leukemia. Remember LFO? Flash back to 1999 and their breezy summer hit “Summer Girls.” That song put LFO, who were also known as Lyte Funky Ones to their fans, on the popular music charts for the first time when the song reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

To my ears, it sounds like it was released in 1974 by Todd Rundgren. Or 1980 and “Set Me Free” by Utopia. Or 1984 by World Party, owners of a one-hit wonder in “Ship of Fools.” Or 1998 by New … Read entire article »

No Pigeons – Sporty Thievz

No Pigeons – Sporty Thievz

We love a good protest song. And we love a good answer song ever more. Some people call them answer songs. Some people call them response songs. All we really know is that these are the songs that someone writes in response to another song someone has written. Typically they take an opposite point of view and each song finds its fans (one is usually far inferior to the other one as well). “Dawn … Read entire article »
