So, now in hindsight, I present the Top Eleven Songs I Forgot To Put On My Top Twenty List even though I know that math doesn't work.
#11) Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al
#6) Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight
I always liked this song a lot growing up, and I don't know if there's a "remix" version of it or not, but there's one version I hear on the radio with a brass section, and one without. I always preferred the brass section, because I always wanted to be able to do that part of the song when I was learning to play the trombone.
#5) Animaniacs - Yakko's World
I'm still trying to memorize this stupid song.
#4) "Weird Al" Yankovic - The Saga Begins
Sadly, I was late to the Weird Al fan club. I knew about him, of course, but besides thinking "oh, he's the guy who writes those silly songs" it wasn't until this song let me actually look at how he constructs his songs and realize how much work he has to put into each one of them.
#3) DJ Earworm - Funky Goes To Hollywood
This was the first real "mash-up" song I heard, and it's what got me started in exploring more and more of it. Without this song, I wouldn't have discovered the works of DJ Earworm, and it wouldn't have lead me to all the other artists who are doing amazing things with already-produced works.
#2) Barenaked Ladies - One Week
This song was my first introduction to the fact that "alternative" music didn't mean "alternative to good." I know not everybody likes it, but when it came out it blew my mind that a song could have that many pop culture references and still be a hit without being made by someone like Weird Al.
#1) They Might Be Giants - I Palindrome I
I'm an English nerd. What more do you want?
Okay, a bit more. I'm a huge fan of this group, and I've followed them since I discovered them in the 90's (when a friend loaned me Flood on cassette). I loved their two music videos on Tiny Toon Adventures, I've followed their music ever since.
So there we go, eleven more songs that deserved a place in my top twenty (top thirty-one?). I'm sure I'll think of more soon (or have more pointed out to me), so don't be surprised if I do a Top Eleven Songs I Feel Stupid That I Forgot About list.
