"Just A Friend" Biz Markie

"The Night the Lights Went Out in GA" Vickie Lawrence

"What is Love" Haddaway

"It Feels so Good" Sonique

"Baby Got Back" Sir Mix-a-Lot

"Girl in Trouble" Romeo Void

"It Takes Two" Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock

"No Reason to Cry" Judy Torres

"Silent Morning" Noel

I'm ashamed to admit I like "Barbie Girl" by Aqua.

I loved that Biz Markie song.

I also like Romeo Void's "Never Say Never" (so maybe they're a 2-hit wonder, LOL!).

Does anyone remember Leaving Town by Dexter Freebish? I still love hearing that song but it never makes the radio, once in a blue moon I'll hear it on a in-store station, lol.

Rusted Root's Send Me On My Way. For the longest time I had it confused with Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill. I found out later that everything on the When I Woke album was inspired by songs the band loves. Anywhoo, I think that everything Rusted Root has written is even better than their one hit wonder. Very lively, and very fun.

That one's pretty vile, too, though Paul Anka's not a one-hit wonder.

That's true! However, many of Paul's other songs were actually good. "You're Having My Baby" is just shudder-inducing.
