    Pronounced with an "umpty": Digital Undergound "Humpty Dance" - YouTube

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    "Wildfire" was Michael Martin Murphy's only top 10 hit (on any chart, it was on adult contemp) had some other chart action. Probably qualifies

    Good call on "In the Year 2525."

    I thought these guys were going to be pretty big but then they broke up:

    New Radicals - You Get What You Give - YouTube

    Also for you Mungo Jerry fans I actually like this song too:

    Mungo Jerry " Mighty Man " - YouTube

    All those songs seem like one-hit wonders, though, don't they?

    Despite the SNL skit, the album was The Crossing. And I have no idea what's up with that video.

    Did "Friday" already get mentioned?

    I really thought that Rebecca Black was going somewhere after that hit!
