Song: "I Blew Up The Clinic Real Good" by Steve Taylor
Nominated by: Oldiesmann
Reason: This song is a prime example of how misunderstood Steve Taylor was. Telling the story of an ice cream man blowing up the local abortion clinic to preserve his career, it was an attempt to point out how ridiculous the idea of anti-abortion violence was. Unfortunately, it caused even more problems as a lot of people didn't get the satire (or were offended by it), causing some Christian bookstores to ban the album.

Song: "Flamingo" by Kero Kero Bonito
Nominated by: Nuckolls5301

Song: "Shine" by Collective Soul
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: I forget how I discovered Collective Soul, but their breakthrough hit is kind of the best of both worlds; it's not as heavy as some of the hard rock bands I like, but it's also got a distinctive alt-rock beat to it; I think it's the guitar riff that hooked me right off the bat.
Video: YouTube Icon Music video on YouTube


Song: "You Are Not Alone" by Michael Jackson
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: What I find interesting about this song was that it was not written by MJ, but by R. Kelly. Interestingly, this song was in the same beat as R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly". It gained fame as the first song ever to début at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. 15 years later, R. Kelly recorded his own version as a tribute song after MJ's death.

The song then came into fruition when it was sung by Laura Branigan in 1986 though it only peaked at #90. Cher then recorded her version of this song and it was a smash hit, peaking at #10 from 1987-88. Michael Bolton, who also wrote this song, sung his own version of this song in 1995.

Reason: I nominate this song because it is a really good song and it was just released today (January 3, 2018). It is a really feel-good party anthem that everyone needs to hear. It also has the retro feeling that is commonly associated with Bruno Mars, especially because it gives 90s vibes.

Song: "Jordan" by Buckethead
Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Expanded from the shorter version usually played in concert, for inclusion in Guitar Hero II, it's one of the most innovative progressive metal songs I've heard. Buckethead's technique is, plain and simple, mind-blowing; I've always thought the riffs of "Layla" and "Eruption" were fast, but Buckethead could run circles around Clapton and Eddie Van Halen.

Song: "Have You Seen Her" by MC Hammer
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: Even though "U Can't Touch This" was MC's signature song, this cover version from The Chi-Lites peaked higher than the former; and it didn't contain any samples and the tempo is slower than almost any other hip hop song.

Song: "Listening" by Morten Harket
Nominated by: 91.49
Reason: This song is a collaboration of the singer of a-ha, Morten Harket, and the Pet Shop Boys. It was written by the Pet Shop Boys and released by them as a mere b-side. But they recorded it with Harket for his 2012 solo album Out of My Hands. A typical PSB song with the voice of a-ha.

Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: It was amazing for three singers to come together and have their song from the Disney movie, The Three Musketeers Wikipedia16, peak at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Song: "Intergalactic" by Beastie Boys
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: For years I was confused about why "Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic" and "another dimension" were in the lyrics.

Nominated by: Cubs Fan
Reason: Though I'm not a big fan of contemporary pop music, I was pleasantly surprised at how hard Elle King can rock. And considering her father is Saturday Night Live alum Rob Schneider, a comedian whom I don't find funny at all, the irony that I've taken to the song as much as I have amuses me.

Song: "Beat It" by Michael Jackson
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: What I find interesting about this song is when in the music video, two rival gangs face each other at the warehouse in a fight to the death between gang leaders before Jackson intervened and stopped the fighting and telling them that violence is not the solution to their problems and they joined him in a dance routine. As the lyrics say, "It doesn't matter who's wrong or right".

Nominated by: 108.26.36.216

Song: "Abacab" by Genesis
Nominated by: Abbacadabra
Reason: The reason I nominated this song is that it is always fun to "rock out" to. With an extended outro on the album version featuring a long synth solo, courtesy of Tony Banks on his ARP Quadra, it always has me trying to play along even when far from a keyboard.

Song: "Running Scared" by Roy Orbison
Nominated by: Hornean
Reason: I heard this song on an episode of "Harper's Island Wikipedia16" in a scene when Malcolm went to the incinerator to burn the money just before he was killed off-screen by an unknown killer who would later be revealed to be his friend Henry Dunn. Plus, it peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961.
