Why Do I Torture Myself?

Apparently, Galoot - the snob is about to crap on some more music.

51. Tupac (featuring Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman) “California Love” - I used to dance to the song they sampled, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker. It was called the plant dance. The plant dance consisted of me, nude dancing with a potted rubber plant held over my privates. I'm not kidding. I did this when completely hammered.

52. Sugar Ray “Fly” - Nice debut. Unfortunately they went with the flow of so many other groups around the same time and changed their sound whenever they had a hit.

53. Naughty by Nature “O.P.P.” - Good use of a popular sample.

54. Joan Osborne “One of Us” - Overplayed.

55. Fiona Apple “Criminal” - Her first single was better.

56. L.L. Cool J “Mama Said Knock You Out” - I bought the solo album of the guy who played guitar in that "Unplugged" session.

57. Jay-Z featuring Amil and Ja Rule “Can I Get A…” - I don't know this song.

58. Sophie B. Hawkins “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” - Good tune. Didn't buy her records but still good.

59. Weezer “Buddy Holly” - The blue album still rocks the most. Not from this song, but I loved the lyric, "...wrestle with Jimmy...

60. Bell Biv DeVoe “Poison” - Really good song.

61. Sheryl Crow “All I Wanna Do” - Quite a debut song, the sound, the lyrics. Too bad she threw the rest of the band under the bus. Remember the "Tuesday Night Music" crew? That was the rest of the band. The guys who collaborated with her on the record. Cowrote some of it? Helped you to rise up from being a backup singer for the "King of Pop". Yeah. Remember them Sheryl?

62. Live “I Alone” - Great song!!!! I think it was the only one I played from that disc.

63. The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Mase & Puff Daddy “Mo Money Mo Problems” - Have you ever seen the print ads for Sean Combs' version of Def Comedy Jam? He's the only person in them. No comedians around. He pays off artists to use the most recognizable parts of their songs because he knows he can't produce an original song that would make enough money to pay for his umbrella carrier. Good for him.

64. The Presidents of the United States of America “Peaches” - Obnoxious song.

65. Digital Underground “The Humpty Dance” - A group that was better than this novelty made them out to be.

66. Edwin McCain “I’ll Be” - I don't think I know this song.

67. Deee-Lite “Groove Is In The Heart” - Very good dance song. Played this a lot at fraternity parties.

68. Will Smith “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” - He should have stuck with acting at this point.

69. Korn “Freak on a Leash” - Waste of space.

70. Jamiroquai “Virtual Insanity” - This guy might have been the next Stevie Wonder.

71. Arrested Development “Tennessee” - As overplayed as this was, I really liked this song back then. Still do.

72. Barenaked Ladies “One Week” - Shitty song from a good band. They do great live shows.

73. Marcy Playground “Sex and Candy” - You sound like Kurt Cobain? Cool, let's do a song.

74. Cher “Believe” - I actually have a story for this. A couple of years after this came out, my family went to Ireland to visit with Saint Eileen's cousins. On the first two nights, we stayed at the house of a man who worked for my stepdad, The Organ Grinder. While riding back from a Pub in his car, the host began to play this album. He asked the Drunk Mick and myself about how Cher's music was perceived in our country. We lied to him, telling him that her music was considered borderline genious and that she was a virtuoso to boot.

75. Kris Kross “Jump” - Another catchy hip hop song.
